    Is it possible all the refresh cars have 75kw batteries? I checked some other threads but don't remember seeing if anyone who received the new refresh checked the battery label.

    Assume even they did put 75kw batteries, they would still label it as 70 for now. That's a big "IF".

    That's what everybody said when the 90 was a $3,000 option on top of the 85, but they still offered it that way.

    Maybe this is a way to do a stealth price increase? Introduce a 75 at a $3,000 premium, let it marinate for a while, then remove the 70 and make the 75 price the new base price. That's basically what happened with the 90, although that's not really the "base price."

    The Verge reported today 5/5/16............

    In its newly updated Model S sedan, Tesla is selling a 70kWh battery that is secretly a 75kWh battery. The company has been selling them for almost a month, and is just now telling the world about it. Even better? If you bought one of those 70kWh Model S sedans, you can pay $3,250 to "unlock" the extra juice

    This is now a new option you can choose if you design a 70D in design studio

    Is there a benefit to having the 75kWh battery even if it is software limited to 70kWh by software?

    If you elect to enable the full 75kWh, how will it affect the 0 to 60 time?
