Tesla releases “Long Range Plus” Model S/X with 390/351 mile range, new wheels
Just saw that! Anyone know what happens if you have an order set to deliver in 2 to 4 weeks?
Based on continuous upgrades on all fronts--firmware, hardware, maybe wheels, though EM said Aero wheels may push the new S figure of 390 over 400. He said interim cars would be somewhere on the spectrum between the old and new figures. They renamed it just to get a shot to recertify the EPA number. Should have the latest on anything yet to deliver.
Well this is irritating. I’m supposed to pick up my X in a week. Now I’m wondering if I should have waited.
There is nothing change with the baterry but the new firmware for new Model X increases its range to 351.
So it is expected that all Model X delivered after 02/14/2020 will have the latest firmware that increase range to 351.
There is some existing inventory Model X with the range of 351. I got email about this.
Well there are hardware changes, but they've already been implemented. No need for FOMO.
From Elon today:
"All S/X cars made in recent months have actually been above stated EPA range. Will be unlocked soon for free via software update."
It is my understanding this OTA update will apply to all Raven models, so back to last summer - includes my 9/19 MX.
@Pungoteague_Dave - While not entirely clear, I got the sense it only applies to the most recent Ravens, as quite a few small, but contributory hardware changes have been made in the last couple of months. I expect software improvements to motor control would work on all Ravens so older ones may not get as much of an increase. I guess we'll know in 4-6 weeks.
