    This has only been touched on in a few threads without a definitive answer. There is all sorts of news over 20 mile range bumps in the 3 and the Y, but a nearly 40 mile increase in the Performance S is huge. With no advertised changes, motors or larger packs?? Is this just "software??
    Thoughts?

    Looks to be because of the new H revision pack.

    Depends on when the old range was tested. Might also be a combination of g and h revision upgrades and other tweaks they did when LR+got 402 miles.

    How does the H revision provide more range? Faster charging I understand, are there some hidden cells in there?:D

    Better battery chemistry which might be what Panasonic was talking about a few months ago where they were able to squeeze at least 5% more range in their upcoming batteries. No one knows for sure really

    Yeah, but tesla isn't updating epa range after every little update. They recently updated LR+ g revision and didn't update now, even though it got the new h revision.

    So depending on how old the last test was the range increase could be a combination of g and h revision and other small improvements.
