    AWD+, for the AWD model 3 with Acceleration Boost (like mine :) )
    And, not Tesla specific, but:
    CPO - Certified Previously Owned (I had to look that one up myself).

    Unfortunately PUP has two meanings now, folks also use it to refer to Performance Upgrade Package

    I believe it LEAF, Nissan I believe writes it that way and they have bacronymed it.

    TACC is also a component of AP, not just EAP

    Also, many are using SuC for Supercharger

    MASTER THREAD: Winter issues, frozen windows, door locks, seals, etc. in Interior and Exterior (then resurrect next winter)
    MASTER THREAD: Winter driving advice, winter tire choices, etc. in Driving Dynamics (then resurrect next winter)
    MASTER THREAD: Winter Tires in Driving Dynamics (then resurrect next winter)
    MASTER THREAD: Winter charging issues, frozen charge ports, road trips in Battery & Charging (then resurrect next winter)

    NoA, or NOA? Seen it posted both ways, and I’ve always read it as North America, but I suspect I’m wrong?

    Finally found a post that suggests it is Navigate on Autopilot....

    Either form of capitalization is correct - anyone who argues otherwise is being overly pedantic.

    Navigate on Autopilot is indeed what is stands for in the Tesla world.
