Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, the maker of electronic vehicle (EV), has announced that the EV manufacturer is delaying the delivery event of its Model S Plaid, as the new electric vehicle needs another week of tuning. Last week, Musk announced that Tesla would hold a delivery event for the first Model S plaid delivery at the automaker’s Fremont factory on June 3.
Now, the CEO has confirmed that the program will be delayed by a week, as the new Model S is not ready yet. Musk said deliveries of the Model S Plaid have been extended until June 10 because the tuning process needs another week.
Model S Plaid delivery pushed to June 10. Needs one more week of tweak.

Back in January 2021, Tesla introduced a fresh version of the Model S and Model X, which includes a new powertrain, new interior and updated exterior design on two of Tesla’s major electric vehicles. The Electrek report states that while launching the new vehicles, Musk said that delivery would begin within a few weeks. Unfortunately, according to the report, the automaker could not do so.
During Tesla’s 2021 first quarter financial results release, the automaker noted that the first delivery of the new Model S should begin very soon and Musk said he believes it will be next month, which is now in May .
The CEO said that the delay is to ensure that the new battery pack in the updated Model S is going to be safe. The report said that the deliveries of the new Model S and Model X vehicles were also not scheduled in May.
