    The A pack was the original pack June 2012, it's limited to 90 kW at a supercharger
    The B pack started being delivered early 2013, it can be charged above 90 kW (120 kW)
    The C pack was never delivered--at least I know of no posts showing a C pack
    The D pack started being delivered in 2014 (not sure when)
    The E pack started being delivered later in 2014 (not sure when)
    For the last two, the differences aren't known. Perhaps different contactors???

    I'm looking online at this used p85 and the delivery date was June 2013 what are the chances it has a B pack?

    Likely. I took delivery in May and received a B.

    It would be easy to verify. Just get the seller to take a picture of the battery label. To access, turn the wheels to left and look behind the passenger's side tire.

    My 60kWh battery is a C pack - maybe that's why there are no 85 Cs?

    Must be. You're the first person, that I'm aware of, to say they have a C pack. Of course, I could easily have missed some posts. Thanks for the info.

    I think the newest cars have F pack (no idea how it is different from E).

    No one can give you a definite value as to the chance the car you are looking at has a B pack unless they have access to the car and can look at the label on the pack just behind the right front wheel. It could have an A pack or a B pack.

    Ask the seller to send you a photo of the pack lab,e, or go see the car if you can.

    Wait, what? Your March 2015 85D has a B battery? Shouldn't it have a D or an E battery?

    The revision #'s for the 60 kWh packs are different from the revision #'s for the 85 kWh packs. That's true for any two different Tesla part #'s. There's evidence that Tesla tries to keep refurb part # rev's in sync with new part #'s on the battery packs, but the 60 and 85 rev's aren't comparable.

    That can also be true for the dual-motor packs vs. single-motor packs. They have different part #'s so they can have different revisions (although - again - it seems Tesla might be trying to keep them paralleled).

    That sounds like you got a recycled battery pack....it's possible during late stage build or pre delivery they found a problem with your new pack and replaced it with a refurbished one before it was delivered to you.

    Or it's just a different part number.

    A new car will come with a new pack - even if there's a bad pack during build or delivery, you'll get a new battery, never a refurb.
