Hi, guys

I am from S.Korea. I ordered my model S "long range" last July and just got updated from dealership that my model S long range will come this Sep. 21.

But at the same time I heard that model S "long range plus" will be launched this Nov. in Korea.

I am totally confused whether I'd better postpone my current order and wait for the long range plus or just pick up the long range version and take S/W update. I know S/W update will not include the H/W updates (in long range plus version, which are mass reduction, oil pump change, etc.) even though the mileage will increase a little bit.

Do you guys think it is worth for me to wait until the long range plus version will be launched in Korea?

Plz give me some advice!!

Thanks!!

I think you should reach out to Tesla directly, I don’t think you can “order” a long range S anymore. I bought an LR in April, but, instrument cluster now says Long Range Plus. Most probably you will get an LR+

Thanks for reply.

But my friend is the CEO of Tesla Korea and those are what he said, which is so sad to me.

I think if your buddy is CEO of Tesla Korea, he would probably know what the best option would be. Have you asked him what you should do ? I would hope he says, dont worry about it, ill switch it out for you later

I can almost guarantee your car will be a Long Range Plus model. I dont think they are just keeping Long Range "-E" batteries lying around to put into cars for specific countries. Your car should come with everything it needs for the Long Range Plus software/firmware upgrade.
