What do those letter mean? I get Performance Y. But what does D+ mean, Distance Plus maybe?

Tesla Model Letters

Thanks!
It means “I put fake badges on my car”

Probably meant to denote the “full” performance package which was an option at one time. All Performance MY’s come
In a single configuration now.
 
PYD sounds waaaaaay too much like:

its a copy of the original Tesla lettering -- In the beginning the Model S was labeled P for performance - a number which designated battery type etc etc. So -- the dolts that sell Chinese garbage on the web - came out with this lettering for people that want to - somehow - delineate-identify their model Y - somehow - pointing to the past. Hence - it exists in fantasy - its not a valid badge. see attached..

I believe the P85+ badge is actually a legit badge. It was limited edition model in the early years. Sport trim, big rear motor, flaring rear fenders and staggered wheels. And a hefty boost in HP from the old 85.

Since nobody has answered your questions so far, it’s an aftermarket badge that some Model 3 and Model Y owners put in their car to further spell out which trim they have

P - Performance Model
3/Y - Car Model
D - Dual Motor
+/- - + signifies the performance upgrade package is equipped (red calipers, CF spoiler, lowered suspension) whereas the - represents the performance models without the performance upgrade package.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for clarification on this hidden Tesla mystery.
