Hi, recently Tesla just released a new software limited 100kwh pack in America, just wondering if they have mentioned it’s coming in Canadian stores. Have they released any news?
Tesla has shifted all S/X manufacturing to only have 100KWh battery packs - which can be configured as fully unlocked or software limited.
When configuring an order, customers shouldn't assume there will be a future option to unlock the full battery pack, unless this is specifically stated on the website.
On the US website, the extended range (full 100KWh) option is $8,000 when configured at delivery - there isn't any indication ER can be added after delivery.
Enhanced AutoPilot is $5,000, and is offered as a $7,000 option after delivery.
bp, how long you been around? While past performance is no guarantee of future activity, Tesla has been down this road before, always with the same result: you can pay later to unlock the rest of the battery. And when these cars are traded for new ones, they will be sold as used, with unlocked batteries.
