Model 3

Anyone know what Tesla did to increase Model 3 range and performance? Also any insight into whether it's a one time change or are there more upgrades in the works?

For clarity this was done to cars on the road through a software update. I'm not used to cars getting better after you buy them :)

      And false promises. J/K. Liked the model Y launch.

    There’s a lot of rumor going around on it without much evidence. A lot of people believe nothing was done except the read out says something different. If you remember they used to say the LR RWD and AWD got the same range. Wondering now if they just adjusted the computer to give an accurate read out.

    On the other hand the update did some big changes to performance. The car is faster off the line now since 2019.5.15 and 0-60 is improved by about .5 seconds.

      Could also be attributed to the warmer weather though

      I have seen better range too but the weather is much warmer which helps with range as well, so I’m struggling to make a proper comparison.
