Another topic I can think of is available motor power. What if the bigger battery version gets quicker to 60 and/or has a higher top speed. Is that worth more money? And how would you calculate it? You can't order just more performance. IMO that would be one case that will happen a lot more likely than just 4%.
And how likely is it that someone not interested in this game before will vote on how much more extra performance is worth, however you define that term.
Hi, @R.S. Can you explain a little more what you mean here? Maybe use an example. A larger battery adds the following advantages compared to an identical car with the same hardware but a smaller battery:
1. More range
2. Better 0-60 time
3. Higher top speed in most instances unless the improvement falls short of exceeding Tesla's 130, 140 and 155 mph software limit thresholds.
4. Less degradation because of fewer charge cycles for the same mileage
5. Quicker supercharge times in terms of miles added per time (let's say per 10 minutes)
Tesla used to publish maximum motor power numbers and you could see that the cars had identical motors:
