    Just noticed the main page for MX has now omitted the 70D option as a battery choice. It is likely an update in progress to some of the information on that page as the 90D text is missing as well. P90D looks as it had since Sep 29.

    The 5-seat version is gone as well. Perhaps eliminating the "base" MX version to make more room for the Model Y?

    Interesting. That's new today I think. I have a 70 on order and was just on that page yesterday or the day before to look something up. It was there the last time I looked. Either some change coming or an "oops" by the web master.

    Here's to hoping its a 75D and it gets announced along with the Model 3 top tier battery!
    As you might recall, Elon had previously hinted at "something like a 70D" for the smaller MX battery before deleting his tweet.

    I bet your right. It will be a 75 90 100.

    Haven't configured yet but when I log in to finalize it still shows the 70d option.

    Out of curiosity, does it still show the 5 seat option? I was curious because theoretically the 70D box and parts of the 90D box disappearing could be a web or editing glitch. However, removal of the 5 seat option is clearly deliberate since the associated text was also changed to explicitly say the X is available in only 2 seating configurations.

    The configurator hasn't changed. Yes, 5 seat is still listed... as is the 70D.

    Hmm.. Wonder if that means there will be an increase in the base price, since the $80k starting price is currently a 70D with 5 seats.

    Speculation: 31st is exclusively the 3 or do you think they will they use the event to announce other stuff (i.e. HWPC seems to be out of stock lately)?

    My bet is that they will announce the 100D and the 90D is the new base. Everyone who bought a 90D gets a free OTA upgrade to 100D. Those that ordered a 70D get bumped to 90D.

    Crazy?

    It will only be about Model 3. People always like to speculate about Tesla announcing more than they have let on to, but historically they don't stray from the topic at hand.

    Is it though? Announcing the largest battery capacity for the largest vehicle a few months after your signature reservation holders receive their X is a guarantee to upset your most faithful customers.

    It would be their cheapest replacement yet with all the X's heading back to SC's for new parts.

    I bet the 100kwh will be like a $3k option. Kind of like when 85 kwh and 90 kwh both existed, the 90 kwh was an additional $3k. It won't piss off previously customer this way.

    OTA? Sure. They can do that using the same technology used by these guys: DownloadMoreRAM.com - CloudRAM 2.0
