Does anyone know off the top of their head if the 40's had A or B packs?
I don't remember the 60kwh version having more than one kind of pack part number.
My mid-2013 MS60 has a Rev B pack. Since all of the 40's were early in 2013, I would expect them to be "A" packs. However, a 60kwh "A" pack is not like the early 85 kwh "A" packs with limited supercharging issues. Even a Rev A 60kwh pack will get 105kw of charging power.
Sweet! Thanks for the quick replies guys. This info shall help me in my quest to finally bring a Tesla home
Sweet, I hope you get one.
I believe the majority 40's were built and delivered in in mid-2013... May/June. I think that makes them B packs.
I agree, my 60 is B and there were no 40s produced at that time
Yeah sort of a guess, as Islandbay's 60 was delivered in late May and he has a Rev A pack.
I guess a better way to put it is; since all of the 60 packs supercharge at above 90kw, they must use the same cells as the 85kwh "B" packs.
So you're finally going for it? Been a bumpy ride for you man, congrats!
I think I am getting really close, I have a car in my sights, just trying to work out a few details. A few more stars need to align, but I think it is actually going to happen this time. Every one keep your fingers crossed for me
I shall. What'll happen to the volt?
The wife will take over the volt the the rest of it's lease. We would probably trade her car for the Model S, and then when the volt lease is up, get her a new SUV. Hopefully there will be some plug in option for an SUV available to us at that point (at a price point less than a Model X, the outlander, if it comes to the US, may be our best bet)
I have a 40 (VIN#10103), and it has an "A" pack, but as others have said, the 60 "A" packs are not like the 85 "A" packs, so no worries. However, I have not unlocked the battery pack, so I cannot give you any insight on Supercharging speed.
My wife and I both have 40's with a type "A" pack. It makes sense, because we have not unlocked the Supercharging, and we would have to go to a 60 first. VIN# 10548 and VIN# 10614
I have read a lot of info on Tesla (even from the other side of the world with Tesla Model S just being delivered here for Test Drives and our first Sig cars due in Sept)
Anyway, about the battery packs and Supercharging
From what I've read,
Supercharging for 85kw batteries comes standard with the car
60kw Supercharging an optional extra
40kw owners - this is not even an option to take - ie. No Supercharging with this vehicle
We 40 Owners have the option to pay to unlock the rest of the pack and make it a 60 which then gives us the option to buy supercharging. I think most of us are satisfied with the performance/range of the 40 though.
Yes, exactly what Sacrament055 said.
Thanks for the info Sacrament055
That is the first time I have read that it is possible to do that.
To me it is just hypothetical as us Aussies (like the rest of the world) will only have the option of a 60kw or 85kw battery to choose from.
In any case, it is always great to learn something new, even if it doesn't apply my actual situation
Tesla has discontinued the 40kWh battery pack all together. It isn't available to anyone anymore.
