    True for the passengers who just returned home on the Musk Mars Shuttle.

    I must be one of them. I surely didn't know some 70 kWh can be upgraded to 75 kWh until recently. :)

    My 60D to 75D upgrade gave me 31 miles. Tesla says it should be "approximately" 41 miles. I guess I should have paid them $65,000 for the car, since that is approximately $85,000 by that definition. :rolleyes:

    I have a MS60 (bought in April 2017) and I've been on the bubble thinking about upgrading to 75, but haven't been able to make up my mind.

    The one factor playing on my mind is whether the M3 launch in July impact price for the upgrade?

    While I understand predicting what Tesla does in terms of marketing/sales is probably impossible, any thoughts from experts?

    I'm bumb of the fact I can't upgrade. I got 70D in July 2015 and less than a year later they ship upgradable 70D.

    I have the Model S 60D. Went to My Tesla last night and the battery upgrade option disappeared. Anyone know what's going on? I e-mailed customer support. I'll update if I hear anything.

    Sometimes the options come and go when they are updating their website. When I first got my Model S last year, the Autopilot upgrade option disappeared for a month and a half.

    I have a 2017 car with about 8000 miles. My range was 207, the upgrade only gave me an additional 28 miles to 235 when fully charged. Not even sure if that was worth $2000

    I had my 2016 S 60D upgraded by the previous owner to 75D upon purchase. Had it driven in by a member of the MN Tesla Club, a retired engineer who was a great help to us and a work=ld of knowledge about all things S and X as he has owned both.

    Anyway, he charged a few times at the SC's local to his area before coming to VT at the advice of the local service center. He was only seeing 235 on a full charge as well. I'm using the car for a daily 190 mile commute. My average power draw per trip is 250-260 Wh/mi. Too soon to tell because I've only been doing this for a month or so but with my driving habits I expect to exceed the 235 range.

    I'll report back in the future.
