There are possible hiccups in Tesla's battery development that have lowered the ceiling for the stock, according to investment firm Canaccord Genuity. Elon Musk's auto company kicked off deliveries of its new Model S Plaid last week, but Tesla scrapped a higher price version of the car. Canaccord analyst Jed Dorsheimer praised the Plaid in a note to clients said the failed upgraded version could signal struggles for Tesla's battery business. Dorsheimer cut his price target on the stock to $812 per share from $974.

Previously, Musk had promised the Tesla Model S Plaid would deliver acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds, and he crowed about "breaking the 2-second barrier," repeatedly on Thursday. But he also caveated some of his own sweeping safety claims by noting that NHTSA has not yet rated the Model S Plaid for safety. On Thursday, Musk offered no significant details on the Model S Plaid battery pack, saying simply, "We have an all-new battery pack." He noted that the Model S Plaid can get 187 miles of range in just 15 minutes plugged into a Tesla Supercharger. Musk also touted myriad changes to the Model S Plaid interior, most of which were previously disclosed.

Tesla kicked off deliveries of its Model S Plaid on Thursday. Tesla has started delivering its Model S Plaid, a $130,000 super sedan that Elon Musk promises is the "quickest production car ever made of any kind." The standard Model S isn't a slow car by any means, but the Plaid kicks things into supercar territory. In one video posted to Twitter, the Plaid hits 60 mph in a bit over two seconds and reaches 100 mph in around five before hitting a top speed of 104 mph. Another video does a better job showing exactly how quickly the Plaid sprints to 60 mph and then to 100 mph.

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.

Musk canceled another variant, Model S Plaid+, which would have had a 33% higher driving range than the Model S Plaid and used advanced battery technology, known as 4680 cells. "The Model S Plaid is definitely intended to help reduce the migration of current Tesla owners out of Tesla," said Ed Kim, vice president at consultancy AutoPacific. Musk has called the Model S Plaid "the fastest accelerating car ever."

Elon Musk says Tesla officially canceled the Model S Plaid Plus

Tesla has canceled the most expensive variant of its flagship sedan, the Model S Plaid Plus, according to a tweet from CEO Elon Musk on Sunday. In March, Tesla raised the price of the Model S Plaid Plus by $10,000 bringing it to about $150,000. The option to order the Model S Plaid Plus variant was removed from Tesla's website around the last week of May, according to a CNET report. Musk previously planned a "delivery" ceremony at the Tesla factory in Fremont, California for the Model S Plaid on June 3. It produced none of the higher-priced Model S or Model X vehicles during the first quarter of 2021, even though Musk had said production was underway during a 2020 fourth-quarter earnings call.
