In an email sent to his employees, Elon Musk would highlight the very good shape of the new generation Tesla Model S and Model X. This would be a comeback after being in the shadow of the Model 3 for a long time.
Long shunned in favor of the star of the Tesla catalog, the Model 3, Model S and Model X 2021 have had the right to a recent second life. Or rather a restyling in order which brought some profound modifications: one thinks in particular of their history screen usually placed in portrait mode and now installed in landscape mode like a Model 3, but also behind the Yoke steering wheel.
Strong demand according to Musk
Note also the arrival of USB-C ports on each row, an audio system with 22 speakers, induction charging at the front and back or an 8-inch screen placed behind. the center console for the rear passengers. In terms of performance, the sedan was entitled to an ever more powerful “Plaid +” version, when the SUV accommodates a “Plaid” variant which is also faster.
For all these reasons, the attractiveness of the Tesla Model S and Model X 2021 has jumped considerably. So much so that orders would have been impacted on the rise, according to an email from Elon Musk sent to his employees and relayed by the specialized site Electrek.
The Tesla Model S and X production lines are nearing completion with retooling and will aim for maximum production starting next quarter. There is a high demand, so we are going to have to go back to two teams soon. Please do not hesitate to recommend relatives for recruitment.
Awaiting quarterly results
For several years now, the Tesla Model 3 has captured a large part of the orders, more attractive price obliges (but not only). The Model S and Model X have long survived, to the point of representing just over 10% of deliveries in 2020: 57,039 for 499,550 vehicles delivered last year.
The duo have here new weapons to arouse the interest of consumers: it will be interesting to observe their next quarterly sales figures which should corroborate the recent comments of the boss of SpaceX.
