Very impressed that no one here saw the new configurations of the S/X coming. Lots of posters were envisioning a change in sheet metal, a new frame, different batteries, a change of the interior to be more like the Model 3, or having it upgraded to a more expensive looking design.
We were blindsided whant Tesla enhanced the car to give the most important thing to new buyers and those wanting to upgrade their current cars...more range.
They changed the motors and bearings to give additional range. Then are changing the tires to make them more efficient, changed the suspension to make it both smoother riding, but also better handling. They upgraded the performance models with free Ludicris Mode and have promised upcoming software upgraded to make the car even faster, and better riding.
As usual, the forums have been blindsided for the most part, with people expecting one thing, and getting something totally different. The exteriors and interiors are pretty much the same. No changes in the battery size or cells.
Think Tesla is leaving the competition in the dust with these new improvements. Tesla is a moving target for others to hit.They are simply falling further behind.
The forums did predict correctly the enhanced computer, and the faster charging, but missed most of the other releases.
