Evolution goes on... and so does the power and range of batteries.
Unevitably the built-in power batteries of a Model S and X today will be far less powerfull and shorter in range than the new batteries within already 5 to 10 years. Also the electromotors will evolve. Now they are already constructing 100kWh motors, which means that the 70 - 85 and 90kWh motors are already a bit obsolete.
My question is: will it be possible to renew your old built-in batteries and/or electromotor with the newer and more powerfull versions after some years? Is that technically possible?
Or would you have to buy a totally new car?
