If you’ve ordered one of the Model 3 Tesla sedans, you know that the company recently announced that it will start delivering them by July 28th which came in as a shock to many who expected a much later delivery. But that’s not all, Tesla also announced major software and hardware updates that should significantly boost acceleration times.
Yes, there is something much better and as per usual; it’s more speed. The Model S and Model X cars have now received software and hardware modifications that allow them to obtain performance boosts.
The entry level Model S 75 gets a huge boost in acceleration time – 0-60mph used to take 5.5 seconds but now drops to 4.3 seconds and the Model S 75D drops down from 5.2 seconds to 4.2 seconds. Then there is the Tesla Model S 100D which now sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds.
The Model X 75D can now sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds compared to the previous 6.0 second quoted time and the Model X100D does the deed in 5.2 seconds, 0.5 seconds faster than before.
You can also purchase a new 7-seat option for an additional $3,000 in addition to those improved performance figures.
