With the Tesla vehicle configurator in the United States lately only offering a six-seat option for the Model X Plaid, many assumed that a seven-seat option was not going to come to light. However, a seven-seat Model X Plaid has been revealed at a press event in Taiwan.
Tesla debuted its top-of-the-line all-electric SUV in Taiwan, along with the Model S Plaid. Tesla fans and enthusiasts were quick to point out that the Model S Plaid on display at the event had enhanced hardware features, including apparent matrix projector headlights, updated taillights, and a native CCS2 charging port. Tesla eventually covered up the Model S Plaid.
The Model X Plaid was likewise equipped with a native CCS2 charging point, as seen in video tours from local media representatives who visited the Taiwan event. The Tesla was said to load streaming applications like YouTube and Netflix in just about 5-10 seconds, according to reviewers who had time to inspect the car. The display was also quite responsive, making simple scrolling the easiest task.
Surprisingly, the Model X Plaid that was brought to Taiwan had a complete seven-seat layout, which has not been offered in the United States recently. So far, customers have only received Model X Plaids with six seats in the US, which is quite comfortable but lacks when it comes to storing goods when there are five passengers inside the car.
The Model X Plaid was well-received by the attendees of the recent gathering, owing to its completely restyled interior and supercar-matching specs. Tesla would undoubtedly have a lot on its plate this year just meeting current demand for the Model X Plaid, but if this latest release is any indication, it appears that Tesla is at least thinking about releasing variants of the flagship SUV that are not currently available, in the United States.
