Raven S Performance Changes 2019 vs 2020 vs 2021?


Jul 24, 2016
We know Tesla is constantly improving things. Actual model year is not critical.

Does anybody happen to have a summary of differences?

2019 Raven S Performance

2020 Raven S Performance
- slight range boost if built with certain battery pack in later 2020?

2021 Raven S Performance
Oct 29, 2020
West Hollywood
By no means a comprehensive list, but here are some changes I am aware of after the initial introduction of the Raven powertrain Model S Performance. Telsa makes lots of minor tweaks we may never even know about.

December 2019 - Lighter generation 5 seats made in-house introduced.
January 2020 - Integrated QI wireless phone charger added.
April 2020 - 'Many small hardware improvements throughout the car that have been introduced gradually over the past several months'
June 2020 - Battery pack with max enabled charge rate of 250 kW introduced.
2020 - Mechanical oil pump replaced with an electric oil pump.
2020 - 19" Tempest Aero wheels and tires become standard.
2020 - Front motor gearbox improvements.
October 2020 - Roughly 3.2% price drop from $94,990 to $91,990.
October 2020 - Curb weight increase reflected in 2021 model year specifications from 4,941 lbs to 4,967 lbs. (Maybe a result of the 'H' battery?)
November 2020 - Certified EPA Range increased from 348 to 387.
