Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) Elon Musk said Monday that the automaker’s Plaid S was its “best car ever.”
What Happened: Elaborating further, the entrepreneur noted on Twitter the vehicle’s capability to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in under two seconds and that it would be seating up to seven people.
It isn’t immediately clear if Musk is referring to the Plaid S or Plaid S Plus model.
