How will this be implemented for us 40 owners?
Will we have access to this function at all? I would assume so.
Will they be stocking 60 and 85 batteries? If only 85s as would seem expedient, will we (or 60 owners) be able to access a full 85kWh battery, or will be be limited to 40 and 60 respectively? If so, will we still be charged the same?
How long will we be able to keep the new battery? Having an 85K battery in my car for a week sounds like it could be worthwhile for a number of reasons.
If we assume they'll only be stocking 85s, does this mean it would be an easy route to upgrade a 60kWh battery to an 85 when it is convenient? Also, will downgrading be possible? Would a future upgrade to 120 or whatever also be equally convenient?
I believe all of us 40 owners recently received an invitation to upgrade to a 60kWh battery and supercharging facility for $10K and $2K. I had basically dismissed it as useless. Depending on answers to the questions above, I might have to reconsider. I'll be making a call to Tesla tomorrow to see if I can get some info. I'll post responses here.
