Tesla announced today the launch of ‘Plaid Track Mode’, a new version of its track mode software to push the track performance of the Model S Plaid to a whole new level.

The new version of the software included a lot more customization features and even included maps of some racetracks with a full video game-like experience inside the car.

Now that Tesla has the new Model S Plaid, its highest performance car yet, the company is relating yet another version of track mode: Plaid Track Mode.

It enables everything that the stability control, handling balance and regenerative braking.

Here’s Tesla’s blog post explaining the new software: Since Track Mode was launched in 2018 on Model 3 Performance, we have taken advantage of instant motor torque to make cornering on the track feel as natural as forward acceleration.

This week, Plaid Track Mode is rolling out to Model S Plaid vehicles across North America. With Plaid Track Mode our goals were simple: achieve the quickest lap time for a production electric vehicle at Germany’s Nürburgring, and allow individual adjustability of stability control, handling balance and regenerative braking to give drivers more authority over vehicle control at the racetrack.
