    Question for our European friends outside of the UK. How much was the recent drastically reduced upgrade from 60 to 70 kWh on Model S in €??

    It's €2,000 for Model S and €4,500 for Model X, right? Just like when the $1,000 to reserve Model ≡ 'translated' into £1,000 and €1,000 on 'the continent', right ? ;)

      with the new battery in model 3 being 60-85kw-hr do you think if you go with the standard option and later pay for a longer length that it is only a software upgrade?

      Hi Russell. In short, no, believe this is highly unlikely. There is no why T≡SLA would install a higher cost battery capable of 310 miles in the $35k car and software-limit it to 220 for that low price point.

      Note the 60-85 kWh range for the therefore two battery choices is speculation most of us don't believe. More likely is 55/75 yet, at this point, once we know what they are both capable of... we shouldn't care...
      Range matters! :D

        Batteries remain a bottleneck well into Model3 production and by putting extra into a pack they're reducing the number of packs they can make. We probably won't see software locked cells much going forward unless they're stockpiling batteries. Can't sell someone a house but lock one room and hope they buy it later.

        I do hope they'll take this approach with Autopilot as time goes on. Lots of people (myself included) won't pay a $5000 premium on AP if they don't plan to use it a whole lot. I'd totally spend 2k though. At some point I bet they'll try and convert as many AP fence sitters as they can with lower prices. After all each car has the hardware, even a $500 price point would be much better then 0.
