    Before update I had 304km with 90%, after updating to 2.5.46 I now have 325km at 90%.

    Some of you know why?

    Maybe more battery cells were added? Chemistry changed from LiSZiAl to LiAlFeS ?

    Who knows! Tesla as an innovative company is known to do such things on OTA updates.

    Enjoy the added range while it lasts.

    It is probably just a software glitch. The battery did not get more energy OTA. :wink: The range is simply an estimate.

    You sure you're still charging to 90%? Rated vs. Ideal?

    I didn't get any extra range after .46

    I had exactly the same thing happening to me !
    I had 301Km charging to 90% in typical and now after the upgrade i get 323Km !!!

    And, of course not a word on what changed with the latest upgrade...

    I don't get it. Both of those numbers seem very low. I'm guessing it's based on the European standards...

    301km is 187Miles
    323km is 200Miles

    My 90% in the US shows 213miles now (used to be 214). So that would be 344km?

    (not that it really matters, all of those numbers are estimates)

    maybe the update is to fix a bug in miles to kilometer conversion?

    I get a consistent 307km @ 80%

    Sounds like it may not have been calibrated correctly before the update. Did you happen to do a full charge before completing the update?

    I noticed no charge with this update. I'm still charging to 230-240 miles (368-384km) at 100%.

    I charge to 90% Usually by the time I get to my car it can be anywhere from 212 - 213 depending on when it finished charging.

    Needed very little juice last night so it was charged early. Got in my car at 7:30 AM (little late for me) and I was at 214.

    So, yeah. I think the same has happened to me, but, not on the same scale. Will take a closer look at the numbers tomorrow.

    90% is 214 miles (on a new battery). If you plug in at night, vampire drain will leave you with 212or213 by morning.

    Seems normal.
