Old School Model Y nomenclature

Remember when Tesla used to sell upgraded battery packs (65, 85, 90)? I'd taken a LR with a 100 kWh battery in a heart-beat. 100D!

They've gone away from almost all customization and are geared towards volume manufacturing. Customers that wait can get all of the latest upgrades for "free" (really, they have no choice).

I have a 2020 LR AWD Model Y, based on what I have read my battery pack has a nominal capacity of "75 kW" give or take. So if Tesla had continued the naming convention from the S to the Y could I say my MY was a "75D".
