Tesla’s Model S Plaid delivery event at the Fremont plant is fully booked as the company has begun contacting some invitees to let them know the event has reached capacity.
Last weekend, Tesla officially began rolling out invitations to the Model S Plaid Delivery Event at the Fremont plant in Northern California. Originally scheduled for June 3, CEO Elon Musk delayed the event for a week due to further adjustments to be made in the updated version of Tesla’s flagship sedan. Now that the vehicle is ready for initial deliveries, Tesla sent out invitations to everyone, from pre-orders to FSD Beta testers, to create a friendly and fun event that effectively marks the rebirth of the vehicle that launched the company in the car market in 201
Now that invitations have been out for several days, Tesla is contacting those who did not respond to their invitation, indicating that the event has reached capacity and these invitees will have to celebrate pretty much.
One of the guests was Earl of Frunkpuppy, a prominent member of the Tesla community who had reserved a Plaid + Model S several months ago before Tesla scrapped the car earlier in the week. Earl shared the email on his Twitter account, which reads:
We have reached capacity for this event. We appreciate your sincere support in Tesla and look forward to celebrating virtually with you!
Team Tesla ”

Probably due to limitations from the COVID-19 pandemic, Tesla could only offer invitations to a fixed number of spectators. Many of these guests could not come because of the reservations, which were apparently on a “First Come First Serve” basis.
Tesla has already begun preparing for the Plaid event, as new images from the Fremont factory show a stage frame along with lights and other equipment, making the delivery event one of the company’s most entertaining to date. Along with owners finally able to receive their new, record-breaking Model S sedans, there will also be driving on the newly renovated Fremont Test Track, where Tesla will assess the performance of its vehicles before production.
Tesla’s Model S Plaid Delivery Event begins at 19 PST tomorrow, June 1st. The event is streamed live so enthusiasts and Tesla fans can watch from their own homes.
