    Model S P90D 129914 | Tesla Motors

    Brand new P90D listed on TM website discounted $10k with 50 miles and no range upgrade listed on options. Don't mean to start this crazyness all over again but interesting.......

    I am confused. Where does the P100D come into play and how does one tell if this is a refreshed unit?

    As for the discount, these are both old showroom cars that have since been replaced by the updated S.

    I think he's just pointing out the text at the bottom that says NO RANGE UPGRADE, if you recall when the 90 battery pack first came out it was listed as a "range upgrade" option over the 85 so he's theorizing that Tesla might offer a range upgrade for the 90 to the 100

    I guess because it is a 90 and it lists one of the options as, "No Range Upgrade," or something like that. It implies there is a range upgrade option on a 90.

    Or it's just being clear that there is not a range upgrade available if you buy these cars, whereas it would be available if you bought a refreshed 70.

    There is an rumbling rumor that some newer 90's can be unlocked to a 100. We will see.

    Just like how newer S70 can be unlocked to S75. Really does bring up the question of where to set your 90% if you have a locked version that can be upgraded.

    Good point! Your 90% could actually be at 96%.

    Or not, if they cut at the low end. Which is more probable, as you have to be able to balance the pack once in a while and charge up to 100%.

    Not sure I like this software option, car refuses to move, but actually would still have enough juice to get to the next SC.

    "Now just pay 3000$ and we have you on the road again! Thank you!" :p

    My understanding was only the refreshed 70's are capable of the 75 upgrade.

    Thanks Erik

    Hopefully Elon would announce it sometime this year, or during the pt. 2 of the Model 3 Reveal which is scheduled to happen sometime next year. Either way, it's something very interesting and exciting to look forward to in the near future!
    Way to go Tesla!

    I just took screen capture of two Tesla's from Tesla website. Both are under 'buy new' but each have 100km on them.

    While I have no idea when both cars were manufactured, I noticed that 90D doesnt have 'no range upgrade' while 70D does have it.

    If the 70D was produced recently enough that it has an upgrade option to 75D, then it may not be a typo or clarification but an implication that 90D will be upgradable to 100D.

    I am not sure where I heard EM or JB say it, but one of them said recently that they have an announcement to make in a few weeks, and that was about a week or two ago..

    The oddest part to me about the No Range Upgrade in the 90D mentioned by OP is that its a pre refresh model with a vin 129... It might just be a web dev mistake in that they aren't excluding that option in the 90's. Even this 85D has No Range Upgrade, Model S 85D 122217 | Tesla Motors
    I think its just a bug

    Interestingly some of the very new 90Ds are shown as "Range Upgrade".

    Model S 90D 136532 | Tesla Motors

    And a slightly earlier VIN is noted "No Range Upgrade"

    Model S 90D 134934 | Tesla Motors
