getting a pulse on how many who have 60 are going to do this?
My option is none of the above, I think all 60 owners who bought their cars AFTER the price increase should fight to get the upgrade for FREE as the new 75/75D pricing is the same. What are we paying $2k for?
If I could upgrade my classic 60's for 2k each, I would do it in a heartbeat.
I did it. On a road trip. The range would be nice. Free sounds awesome but, really? Good luck with that.
I just want the power liftgate. I've looked into the 3rd party/DIY ones but don't like how it just slams the liftgate at the end.
Good idea for a poll - is there anyway we have an option of "I've gone from "hell no" to seriously considering it"?
I paid for it late last night, but I'm not so sure it was worth it for me. My 60-100% was 208, and my 75-90% is now 217. It should come in handy on road trips or longer drives, but in reality one additional stop wouldn't have been the end of the world for me.
I can see why you are upset. Especially after the price increase , the window was so narrow. But doesn't everyone feel that way after they missed a deal/discount that inevitably comes later?
that would me "i'm on the fence"
exactly my thoughts and why I'm holding out - might as well spend the extra 2K on the M3 when that is out.
When you spend 100K 3 years back - 2K now seems like peanuts. So I might consider that in a year or two - but really the range has never bothered me. I been on a grand canyon trip 1000+ miles from so cal , and when i did the math/research a 300KW battery would need the same number of stops. Agreed that it would be very handy in colder regions.
If you take a long road trip, you might see more reasons to upgrade. I just recalculated my trip and I can skip 2 SCs and just charge longer on one (for 20 minutes). Remember that a lot of SCers are not right off the highway and require significant time/kwhs getting to/from. I can save 2 hours on my big road trip to visit in-laws EACH WAY. Time is $. This will pay itself off for me in 3 trips.
Same here - at $7k my thinking was "hell no" at $2k it's more along the lines of, "while I am not sold yet, I am certainly considering it".
My 60 was at 219 miles on 100% (as of 11:00 today-April 17). After 2 hours of charging, my new 75 has posted 255 miles at 100%. My $2k bought me 36 miles. During the last 5 minutes of charging, the amps went from 30 to 11 amps and the rate went from 23 mi/hr to 22 miles/hr.
As I used EVTripPlanner, it left me with a very low threshold of remaining miles to go between supercharges in Arizona. (arriving with under 10% battery). This caused some range anxiety that the new 75 is supposed to provide some relief from.
To me - its not how many times I will travel long distances, its that I could not travel at all in my Tesla (between these stops). So I am not just buying 36 miles, I'm putting vacations on the calendar that I could not reach before. Was THAT worth $2k?.
219? Is that a typo? Mine usually charges to 209. The highest I've ever seen it go is 215, after charging to 100% at Tenaya Lodge and then getting an extra 6 miles on regenerative braking from going down the mountain.
Free supercharging if before JAN cut-off?
And they should get a free power lift gate installed
Does the upgrade make it indistinguishable from a S75? Except for the exterior badging, do the display logos all change?
My 60D did 219/220 and now just did 255. I believe @AZ Desert Driver likely has a 60D/75D as well. I believe I will get 260 after cell/module balancing. Remember, our cars have never actually charged to 100% before, just 84-86%.
everything in the car changes, and you can get a new badge from a ranger of SC. Basically the only way to tell it was a 60 at one point in its life is if you show the person you sell the car to your original title/mfg statement of origin. Ironically my title just says "Model S" and not "Model S 60" lolololol.
