Introducing Tesla’s fastest and most powerful car, Elon Musk unveiled the all-new Model S Plaid at an event in Fremont, California this Thursday. As it stands, the latest car features 1,020 horsepower, a 0-to-60-mph time of 2 seconds, and an estimated 390-mile range.

“We’ve got to show that an electric car is the best car, hands down,” Musk said at Thursday night’s event. “It’s got to be clear [that] sustainable energy cars can be the fastest cars, the safest cars, [and] can be the most kick-ass cars in every way.”

“This car crushes,” he added.

The impressive new car features a new carbon-sleeved, tri-motor setup, which allows for rear torque vectoring. There’s also a new heat pump, and in addition to the extremely quick 0-to-60-mph time, the Model S Plaid will allegedly run the quarter-mile in a blistering 9.2 seconds at 155 mph.

With the exteriors kept largely the same, the interiors of the car have gotten a considerable revamp. The car now features a horizontal touchscreen with a bigger 17-inch version with smaller bezels. There’s a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, and a third screen is found behind the center console for rear passengers. The new UI for the screens features drag-and-drop elements and other refinements, along with a waypoint feature to Tesla’s navigation system.

The Model X Plaid is priced at $121,100 including destination, and the first deliveries are slated for January or February of 2022.
