A lot of people have figured out that Tesla limits some features through software. Including but not limited to battery, autopilot, and speed. (I think it's a good marketing strategy)
It would be cool if there could be trials to test them out though. Tesla already does this but it is somewhat limited.
Instead of time based trials they should be based off a usage amount, for example 10 miles of autopilot. (Could also be amount of times parked, etc.)
Another thing that would be nice would be paid trials. For example if i'm going on trip, I would be able to temporarily upgrade the battery for the trip, without paying the full price.
This would not only make people more likely to completely upgrade, but allow another small source of income for Tesla.
