for example I am told you cannot upgrade a 60D to a P100D.
New to forum.
I don't believe that any car is able to upgraded to a P100D. Perhaps some P90Ds, but definitely nothing lower.
Thats what I wondered about.
Have to have a Tesla. (HAVE TO).
But if waiting for $$'s to get the - - - - -> s p e e d, I'll never get there. So I'm thinking used, and upgrade later.
We have an S85 and it's plenty quick... any EV is quicker than most gas cars stoplight to stoplight in most cases. It's the instant torque.
Man! Sounds Good. Really good!
Have to have a plan. This is like looking at the 1st trip to Europe. Seemed so far away. But with a little bit of HEAD DOWN, nose to the grindstone, next thing were LOOKING UP, walking around Rome.
I'll be on this forum when it happens...
Good way to start saving is to get a used Leaf or something to move most of your daily commute to electricity and save the $ from gas to electric (usually at least a 75% savings, if not more). I know a lot of Tesla owners who started with Nissan Leaf...
True, @Dennis , but in all fairness we should also warn the readers about the notable battery degradation that some Leaf owners have reported... Something to keep in mind when shopping for a used one... depending on the length of your daily commute...
To be noted battery degradation is not something which seems to affect T≡SLA batteries, or hardly at all - see below (source Teslarati!)
So, depending on one's budget, if & when you can afford a used Model S, that's always going to be the best plan!
The P100DL is a very different car. The electronics that monitor current draw are more precise. While an upgrade may be possible it's cost prohibitive. To quote an old Indiana saying "You can't get there from here, you have to go someplace else first"
Also, finding a AP2 class car used is not easy and they're generally not much cheaper than just buying something new from Tesla.
Simply put: none
you can upgrade a 60 to 75
