According to an update, Tesla is again delaying the 2021 Model X and S by almost six months. Customers who ordered before February are also said to receive a Q4 delivery date.

Tesla is making corrections to the delivery timelines for all those clients who've purchased a Tesla Model X "Refresh." Today, an owner's accounts show the expected delivery date of October, pushing the expected delivery date to the fourth quarter of the year. Earlier, the dates were pushed back to June And July. Pricing for the Model X starts at $79,990, while the updated Model S costs about $85,000.

Both the redesigned 2021 Tesla Model S and Model X share their delayed delivery dates, which are now being displayed inside the customer's Tesla account. For example, several individuals purchased that the automobile on February 20th has a shipping date of October. Moreover, June's shipping date is currently getting an October delivery time, suggesting that the Model X may not make it to the production line for several weeks.

Tesla had to redesign the applications and an interface for its brand new Model S and Model X horizontal screen, and the delay might be described as a software challenge. Tesla has axed the "Waterfall" screen in favor of a rectangular bezel seen on Model Y and Model 3. The X and S got new tool clusters because Tesla changed the screen arrangement. The website additionally described that the second-row screen requires a different UI(user interface )as it did not exist earlier.

Refreshed Model S Plaid and Model X Plaid come with a "Tri-Motor" powertrain, which houses two motors at the back axle and one at the front will be useful for torque-vectoring. The Model X Plaid is believed to go to 60 in 2.5 seconds and give 340 miles of driving range.Tesla offers Model X now with Long-range and performance-oriented plaid models.

The all-electric automaker updated the interior in its Model S and Model X SUV, which comprises a U-shaped steering wheel and the lack of critical things, for instance, a gear selector. Furthermore, extra-powerful new Plaid and its Model S, Plaid Plus models combine to an enhanced interior as a portion of their refreshes.
