Tesla to deliver first redesigned Model S at June 3rd Event
May 20, 2021
Tesla has announced that it will be delivering the first redesigned Model S cars to customers at an event on June 3rd. The redesigned Model S and X cars were first announced during Tesla's Q1 results in January with the initial deliveries expected in February. It's clear that didn't happen for whichever reason, but after being pushed back several times, we now have concrete information on when we will see the first redesigned Model S.
The first deliveries will be for the Plaid variant, so not only will it be exciting to see tests for Tesla's new top of the line vehicle, but the vehicle will also presumably be running Tesla's much anticipated v11 software. If you haven't see our early look into v11, we strongly recommend it.
The redesigned Model S will feature many new features such as a 17" horizontally mounted center display, a rear display for controls and entertainment, a noise canceling sound system, a new user interface and much more. If you don't recall everything included in the Model S redesign, you can read our full roundup of new features.

One of the most controversial features of the new vehicle will be its lack of a gear stalk. The car will automatically determine whether it should go forward or backward based on a variety of factors. It will also provide the ability to manually choose the direction via the touchscreen. We saw video of how this will be done a couple months ago.
This is sure to be an exciting event as there will be so much more we'll learn about the redesigned cars and their software.
Current Tesla owners are waiting anxiously to find out more about v11 and which features will carry over to their cars. It's strongly rumored that Tesla has been holding back features in their current software releases due to the redesigned Model S not being ready. It's likely that we'll finally get our hands on v11 following the June 3rd event.
The redesigned Model X vehicles aren't ready just yet and are still scheduled to be delivered later this year.
