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
Only the new 60s... Original 60s (2012-2014) are not able to be upgraded.
His question was which MS of any years can be upgraded to 100D. So as far as I know none can be upgraded to 100. You're right MS 60 can be upgraded to 75 but not more.
Actually my point is NOT ALL 60s can be upgraded to 75s. Just clarifying your original answer.
Right but all the 60s that was built when it was back in production (July 2016)is able to be upgraded to 75
Correct. I was not disputing that fact.
The answer to your question is all P90D's can be upgraded to P100D for $20K. Your battery has to be replaced and new firmware and software is updated as well. Your local service center can schedule this service for you and includes changing your rear bumper badge. I seriously considered upgrading but P90D is pretty damn quick!
Wow, indeed, @Frank Hurst , that is a lot of greenbacks per 0.1 second 0-60 time gain!!
The speed may not be a reason to upgrade. The range might push you into upgrading. One of my favorite loops is Fremont to Pacifica for brunch, Santa Cruz tour and Shadowbrook in Capitola for dinner. The P100 makes it with no worries with a speed of 80 MPH when I can. I get home late with 10 - 7% battery left.
