That’s not the first time Tesla’s over-the-air update make an electric car quicker. The latest one is for Model 3 Long Range AWD owners who wish to push the acceleration closer to a Performance-spec — and are ready to be charged $2,000 for this.
At first, dual motor Model 3 LR owners have to install the latest Tesla software ver. 2019.40.2. Than there will be an opportunity to purchase the Acceleration Boost.
Tesla claims the 0.5 sec faster 0-60 mph time – after the update it will reach 3.9 seconds. There is no official data for European-spec cars, though the expected 0-100 km/h time should be around 4-4.1 seconds, since without the update European Model 3 LR AWD makes it in 4.6 seconds.
