(Reuters) - Production for Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc's longest-range Model S Plaid+ is canceled, CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1401641625500229632?s=20 on Sunday.

"Plaid+ is canceled. No need, as Plaid is just so good." Musk tweeted.

Model S Plaid+, which would have been Tesla's highest-end model with a driving range of 520 miles, was unveiled at a battery event last year and Musk said it would adopt its next generation 4680 battery cells. But production was pushed back to 2022 from the end of 2021.

Musk on Sunday called the Model S Plaid the "quickest production car ever made of any kind."

According to the company's website the Model S Plaid can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 1.99 seconds and has a top speed of 200 miles per hour and an estimated range of 390 miles.

"Model S goes to Plaid speed this week," he said in another tweet, without elaborating.

The Model S Plaid was scheduled to be unveiled at an event on June 3, which has been pushed to June 10.

The Model S Plaid costs $112,990, according to the company's website.

“Plaid is too good.” Aka that knee jerk announcement I made about having something more efficient than Rawlins wasn’t true and barely a year later: I concede. I don’t know what’s going on with this guy, but he needs to get it together. Raising prices, stripping parts, losing safety ratings, suspending functionality, wasting time w/ crypto, and now warring w/ Anonymous. Seems like this guy is going off the rails.

It's just a symptom of overall global financial chaos. In a few months there will be a cyber attack that will shut down supply lines.

Looks like a lot of Tesla fanatics here thumbing down any even slightly negative comment. News just came out BMW and Volvo released their latest EV models with many better features than Tesla has and aggressive pricing. It was just a matter of time when 'monopoly' breaks and this year it seems to happen.

The new model S will fail and sales will be low. The demand for expensive electric dragsters is simply not there...

Marl this post. Tesla will be trading under $100 in 24 months. When it hit $900 I said it would be trading under $700 by summer, to endless jeers. And I was wrong, it was trading under $600 on the spring.
