    Just noticed that Twin Charger option has been removed from the design studio although it's still described in the online brochure. Also, EPA ratings for the 85D and P85D are now official (no longer stated as pending confirmation). Also gone is the statement about 21" wheels resulting in 3% less range (there's still a sentence in the fine print section apparently referring to the blog post or range calculator, but without a functioning link at the moment).

    The dual chargers are still talked about on the Model S charging page. Must be a mistake.

    Now it's responding. It says the car comes with 11kW charger and dual charger option is not there. Strange, I cannot think of any other reason for removing it but the one you said.

    Can confirm it's gone from the Norwegian site too. Same with the Security Package.

    As many have stated, they still advertise High Power Wall Connector with dual chargers.... I sure hope they will make duall chargers default to all new cars.

    Or they developed a new charger which does 22kW by default and they no longer need a new charger?

    Or... It's just a mistake from the web team.

    The choices for adapters, chargers and are no longer available in Swedish store. The next Gen seats are available for all cars now.

    Unless twin chargers are now standard, this has to be a mistake. It won't be the first one on the website.

    Indeed some changes.... noticed that the USA base price for the 60 went down from $74,570 to $71,070 and the S85 went down from $82,570 to $81,070 according to my old notes. Also the Next Gen seats appear to be order able for all models, not just the P85D.

    Metallic paint was $750. Multi-coat red and the pearl white are $1,500.

    Carbon fiber decor is now $1000. Other trim options now $750. Piano black is still no charge.
    Tech package doesn't say anything about navigation or free map updates. [Looks like Nav with the map updates is listed as standard equipment now.].
    Winter wheel packages are gone too. The wheels are still available in the accessories area.
    Next gen seats are $3,500 (I thought they were $2,500 originally).
    Wall connector is gone too along with the dual charger.

    Ok, right. So what does that mean. Back to 11kW for all new cars? That's slow!

    The specification page continues to read as if a single charger is standard, but a second charger is available. However, it is unclear whether Tesla is still tinkering.

    I don't see any changes in the base prices with no options for the US site.
