2021 Tesla Model S and Model X revealed with airplane yoke steering wheel, Plaid performance variants

The updated Tesla Model S and Model X are no longer the subject of rumors.

On Wednesday ahead of the Silicon Valley automaker’s earnings call, Tesla released its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020 update, which contained the first details on the refreshed 2021 Model S and Model X.

Both battery-electric vehicles are available to order on Tesla’s website, including new Plaid and Plaid+ (Model S only) performance variants boasting a new three-motor powertrain.

The bulk of changes take place inside where the vertical 17-inch touchscreen of the current models has been replaced with a Model 3-like horizontal screen. The size has not been released yet. A storage cubby now sits below the touchscreen, along with a hard button for the four-way flashers.
