Production for Tesla's longest-range Model S Plaid+ has been canceled, CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet on Sunday. 

"Plaid+ is canceled. No need, as Plaid is just so good," Musk tweeted. 

Model S Plaid+, which would have been Tesla's highest-end model with a driving range of 520 miles, was unveiled at a battery event last year, and Musk said it would adopt its next-generation 4680 battery cells. But production was pushed to 2022 from the end of 2021. 

Musk on Sunday called the Model S Plaid the "quickest production car ever made of any kind." 

According to the company's website, the Model S Plaid can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 1.99 seconds and has a top speed of 200 miles per hour and an estimated range of 390 miles. 

"Model S goes to Plaid speed this week," he said in another tweet, without elaborating. 

The Model S Plaid was scheduled to be unveiled at an event on June 3, which has been pushed to June 10. 

The Model S Plaid costs $112,990, according to the company's website.
