Anyone got the second message in your order page? What does this mean?

It means they are downgrading your vehicle from the time of your original order.
Minus the 0-60 time (I couldn't care less), all other features added by the time we ordered the car it's an upgrade.

  • Can charge to 100% all day, all night (LFP battery)
  • Heated back seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Ryzen CPU (to be confirmed in my case)
  • Heated wiper (to be confirmed in my case)
  • 12v Lithium battery (to be confirmed in my case)
And no price increase.
Is there ANY information on HOT weather performance of the LFP battery? Anything? All searches for "hot" related to LFP battery seems to result in nothing but cold related information. I live in a desert! Car will be in a small, hot garage. Likely 120+ F at times. Will the heat from the A/C system cooling the battery make the garage significantly hotter? Will it still cool the battery adequately if not plugged in? Will I lose a lot of range driving around in 115+ F weather? Is LFP generally better or worse than NCA in the heat? Is it okay to charge to 100% all the time in the heat?
