Delivery for Tesla’s Model S Plaid will be pushed back a week to June 10, chief executive Elon Musk said in a tweet.

The car “needs one more week of tweak”, Mr Musk said, explaining the delay.

The Model S Plaid, the automaker’s quickest electric vehicle to date, was scheduled to be unveiled at a June 3 delivery event for customers at its factory in Fremont, California.

Mr Musk, who also leads Space Exploration Technologies, said the car “feels like a spaceship” and that “words cannot describe the limbic resonance”. In his original tweet announcing the event, he said the Model S Plaid was the fastest production car ever, capable of going from zero to 60 miles per hour in under 2 seconds.
