Right, I'm less dismayed by the price bumps if the standard equipment is improving. I had said that I'd be willing to pay an increment for the new lights as an option, so for me its OK if there's a connection. Others who are perfectly content with the present lights would most likely be annoyed to learn that this is a reason behind the price increase.Another price increase, maybe they are finally coming!!
That makes the NA Model Y the only variant with these lights. I doubt they'll keep them long-term they probably still have inventory.I don't doubt that was the goal. I wonder what happened to slow it down? Maybe the margins are so good and volume so high on the LR AWD Y that they are keeping the "cheaper" lights.
Only a single confirmation so far. And someone else with an even newer VIN than him that confirmed the 78.You're in luck because from recent reports on here it sounds like the 82kWh pack is in the AWDs as of recent. I'm taking delivery of a VIN in the 179XXX range soon. I'm hoping for the bigger pack too.
I don't know enough about how Tesla does that math to know if that methodology can be trusted.I've seen at least three people that calculated 78kWh+ on recent AWD Ys. Calculating 78+ usable means the 82kWh pack.
The new headlights are seen on the online order form when you make the purchase. False advertising for not being included???
In the battery thread, the MYP are seeing about~80.5kWh and the MYLR are seeing about ~78 kWh. That seems to indicate their is a difference between the P and the non-P.I've seen at least three people that calculated 78kWh+ on recent AWD Ys. Calculating 78+ usable means the 82kWh pack.
