A court in Norway has found Tesla guilty of throttling charging speeds and battery capacity through a 2019 software update. Customers in the country reported reduced range and slower charging times at Supercharger stations. To settle the complaint, Tesla has been ordered to pay each affected owner around $16,000.

Hard to imagine that award standing for long. Also wonder if it is likely that courts in other jurisdictions would rule the same way on the same suit.

This is Tesla, Elon Musk might "do us a favor" by offering a customers to pay $20k for battery pack replacement with 4680 cells.
If they do I'll put my money where my mouth is and pay. I have said all along if they let me help buy them out of this hole I will. I just want the company to be honest, forward planning, and customer friendly. Fraud is not their best look, I'll pay up to help reinforce a return to honesty. Sustainable transportation is what I bought into. Disposable is not. I expected teething pains, not fraud. I'll rejoice if this was a teething issue.
