Pretty much 0. They'd be saying that upfront. The 100 pack is a difficult battery to manufacture so it was exclusively on the P100D until the 100D became available last week for order.

What are the odds that X90D HW2 ordered in December is in fact 100kWh, software limited?

Normally I would agree that it's possible, and of course, anything is possible.

I was thinking that there have been enough articles on the software limited models being such a bargain since they are in fact a bigger battery, that maybe that will be one OTA update they will stop doing. Just a thought.

I had a different thought... What if everyone that has a 90D order in now that isn't built yet will get a 100D?

Thats exactly what I was thinking of, the small price difference indicates it is not much more complicated to build 100 pack, my father who has ordered 90D in December is checking if its possible to upgrade to 100, delivery expected in April. So probably not built yet

Unfortunately it would be considered a new order and unlimited supercharging would be removed as well as ventilated seats if he selected them. And there would be fees to change too.

Oh, maybe I should explain why I think that. The 100kWh battery pack uses the testbed cooling system that the model 3 is using, so it would be beneficial to get that out in the field and tested prior to model 3 delivery.

The new 100kWh pack has 1146 extra cells over the 90kWh pack. Tesla found a way to tighten the packaging for the 18650s. Nothing magic.

The price delta however is rather reasonable in $US ($3000) but it's over twice that much in $CAD for the same thing but that includes the price increase coming on Jan 26th so we'll see how much the delta is here when the 90D gets updated.

Hi Trev! Thanks for a great show. Yes I read they're using heat-pipes in the 100-pack, you think that'll be standard I our Model 3's?
