    I have noticed that I no longer have the option to upgrade from the 60 to the 75 via My Tesla. I have been checking back periodically since last Wednesday, no luck.

    Can anyone else with a software locked 60 check their My Tesla page and see if it shows?

    Same for me. I think they are starting to realize that giving people a 75 kWh battery for price of a 60 has basically just cannibalized margin-advantaged models. I'm sure they will still take your money...but they will want to put some pain into the system to frighten people that are taking a 'wait and see...' attitude at the moment.

    I wasn't looking to upgrade. Just noticed the option was gone.

    When I bought my 60 the web site stated upgradable to 75. This helped me buy a Tesla a little earlier than planned and. Upgrade battery at a later time. My guess is the web page is just not working correctly

    Yes, that seems more likely than Tesla deciding to take away the option since your car has a 75kWh battery in it as far as we know.

    Since they're giving you the bigger battery either way, I'm sure they'll be happy to take your money to use all of it.

    It's either a mistake with the website or some sort of a decision to lock the configuration down for production and you'll have to upgrade some other way (call Tesla? visit Service Center?)

    It gone for my 70D as well. But they also have asked me to add a credit card for my payment. Mine was paid in full at delivery and that has never been there.

    I think the database it fubar. Your upgrade option will be back.

    Arguably this would be a reason to get deposit back? If this is true?

    The Design Studio description of the 60 and 60D still says it is upgradable to a 75 at any time. Looks like a website faux pas somewhere.

    The option is stil there in the online Shop option. I clicked to upgrade, and it sent me to My Tesla, which, as you say, doesn't have the upgrade.

    Do you have your car yet? I'm speculating that you can't upgrade between the time your order is confirmed and you receive delivery. If you want to change a confirmed order before production, I suggest you call your Delivery Experience Specialist who can probably throw the switch for you.

    I already have my Model S and I no longer have the 75 upgrade option.

    I don't plan on upgrading anytime soon. Just curious if anyone else noticed the web portal option disappeared.

    I called Tesla last week about this. They are working on the website and will have it fixed soon. You can go to a service center if you need it done right away.

    Also, for those without Autopilot, that option is missing now also.
