    Might not be news for everyone but I just logged in to My Tesla and see the upgrade went from $9k to $7k:

    Interesting. I would've thought they would never touch the price as it would make people who purchased at high price pretty pissed off. Either way, it's still not worthwhile for me to purchase...

    Interesting. I just happened to be looking earlier today and it was still 9k. Just checked now and it is indeed7k. I don't think I'd pay more than 3k to be honest

    I'd probably pay $3,500 max

    NO idea why they don't shave a couple tenths off the 0-60 time of 60>75... has to be a fairly easy software edit. Why not?

    I think they realized that nobody is biting at $9000 and maybe some of us will use those tax returns on the battery. Heading to Orlando in a couple months, I might consider this if it takes significant time off the trip.

    Great news. I just check on the AU website and the change has not been updated for those taking up the option up-front. I wonder if this will be a US only change.

    On the US design studio the upgrade is currently 6,500 on new purchases...

    The acceration difference has to do with the number of modules in the pack.

    Agreed. At 3k I might do it, nothing over that considering I would be getting into degradation territory at my own cost..

    I won't even begin to act like I know anything technical, but it seems like the car (60D X) is limited 0-20 and let's go a bit more 20-60.

    Maybe I'm just feeling something that is not there.

    I just feel if they can use software to keep making the P100DL faster... they can do the same for lower trims. Again just non technical theory.

    Perhaps a reduction in price for the X is coming.

    Nice pickup. But for an extra ~35 miles nowhere near worth it (for me).

    Having just done a long trip (2700 miles), I don't think it would even save you that much time.

    That last 10-20% you'd charge is the slowest part of the pack, and it's not like there's a supercharger at every exit. If you don't have enough range to skip one you're still going to spend the time getting off the highway and parking. Only a 90D is really going to be able to pull that off, and only in certain areas.

    From San Diego to Salt Lake City I would've saved 2 stops with a 90D, A 75 would've saved one (maybe 2)
    For me the only big benefit would be that I would't stop in Temecula on the way to Barstow and eventually Las Vegas. (about 190 miles + 2000ft elevation)

    The 60 is pretty underrated (it's more like a 64 based on the firmware hack). The upgrde adds about 10kwh,
    Tesla’s hacked Battery Management System exposes the real usable capacity of its battery packs



    Go ahead and try it out on ev-tripplanner, it'll give you an estimate for how much time you're really saving.

    On a model X it might be a bit more worth it due to towing and higher consumption.

    Unless you have a travel leg you just can't make without the upgrade, it really doesn't make sense to pay anything for part of the battery you shouldn't use unless traveling.

    This was inevitable once they raised the price of the base 60 2k without changing the price of the 75. The add-on price for jumping 60->75 at purchase became $6500. Historically it has only been $500 extra to enable later. doubleohwhat, what made you decide to pull the trigger on adding capacity?
