Elon Musk is aiming to breathe new life into Tesla Inc.’s high-end sedan that helped establish the company as the world’s leading electric-vehicle maker.
The Silicon Valley company late Thursday is poised to mark the delivery of a souped-up version of its luxury sedan.
The vehicle, dubbed Model S Plaid, can accelerate from zero to 60 miles an hour in less than two seconds, Tesla says on its website, and is priced starting around $130,000.
The revamp comes nearly a decade after Tesla launched the car, which became one of the world’s first widely sold battery-powered vehicles.
But sales have slumped in recent years as the company has focused on developing more-affordable vehicles.
