While the refreshed Model S has been seen several times in real-world testing, the refreshed Model X has never been seen before. Now, photographed for the first time, the Plaid or refreshed Model X was spotted at the Fremont factory, marking real progress in the company's efforts to bring the updated product to market as soon as possible.

The Kilowatts/Twitter managed to capture several refreshed Model Xs that were located on the territory of the Fremont factory. These were Deep Blue Metallic cars, although it remains unknown if they were Long Range or Plaid. The only exterior design difference between the trims, according to photos from the company's website, is the color of the brake pads. The Plaid version has red brake pads, while the Long Range version has black brake pads. However, it is impossible to see it in the photos.

With maximum power and the fastest acceleration, Model X Plaid is the highest performing SUV ever built. Long Range and Plaid powertrains with updated battery architecture can deliver instant torque at any speed. Their vehicle platforms unite powertrain and battery technologies for unrivaled performance, range, and efficiency. New module and pack thermal architecture allows faster charging and gives more power and endurance in all conditions. Model X also has the most storage and towing capacity of any electric SUV to date, all while accommodating up to seven adults.

The combination of these characteristics makes Model X a highly desirable vehicle, which is reflected in a sharp increase in the number of orders. According to an internal email sent by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the demand for the new Model S and X is so high that the company will soon have to return to two shifts of work. He even urged employees to recommend friends for recruitment.
