No. They aren't. Stop torturing people with such ideas.
Here we go again...
Hi there, Tim from Roadshow by CNET for another AMA. Happy to answer your questions about Models 3, S, X -- or whatever else. AMA! • /r/teslamotors
I initially dismissed this 9 days ago, but there were some recent rumblings
As God is my witness I will eat some sock if this turns out to be the case.
Contemplating deleting this - I will say it is really really speculative. But there might be other data points out there that confirm or deny this...
Why would Tesla software limit the battery pack?
Show us the pack voltages at 0% state of charge and 100% state of charge and we will have the answer.
More efficient to produce + gives the ability to unlock/upgrade for additional $$$$ ?
They've done it before for 40's. But could be due to additional validation needed...
Also from 2013:
"Tesla just announced :
Also being announced today is that the small battery option for the Model S will not enter production, due to lack of demand. Only four percent of customers chose the 40 kWh battery pack, which is not enough to justify production of that version. Customers are voting with their wallet that they want a car that gives them the freedom to travel long distances when needed.
The customers who ordered this option will instead receive the 60 kWh pack, but range will be software limited to 40 kWh. It will still have the improved acceleration and top speed of the bigger pack, so will be a better product than originally ordered, and can be upgraded to the range of the 60 kWh upon request by the original or a future owner."
When the refreshed S gets to customers we can get the battery designation letter. I have one in order but I delayed delivery till July
Where can you find that? I assume you don't mean the sticker on the battery behind the front right tire.
That sticker should be it, I read somewhere each type of battery has a letter and currently they are D. If there is a new battery version it should be E.
Oh how we love to torture ourselves on this site!
See posts 522 and 526 below. 522 is a new pack (with the greater range) and 526 is one of the originals (mine). Notice the part numbers and letter are identical. Does someone have another picture of a S90D with a different number/letter? I know the X has a different part number.
90D Range slowly declining
To be clear I don't believe these packs are currently being delivered to customers yet. I believe all of the refreshed cars so far are for stores and no customer deliveries have happened. All customers awaiting delivery are looking at late May to June. That is when I speculate new packs will arrive
Yeah, but they did that by limiting it so you could only charge a Model S 40 to 69%. So if they did it the same way it would be obvious.
If you want to torture the people,
Refreshed 90kwh packs are actually 100kwh [Rumor]
is the title to go for
The Most Terrifying Thought Experiment of All Time
I asked a source close to me about this. This is a source who's never once given my faulty information about upcoming Tesla products. When I very specifically asked if the current 90s have software limited 100 batteries, they DID NOT DENY IT.
The source is my dog.
