Telsa creates extra battery capacity for owners near Hurricane Irma
Tesla has given owners of vehicles with software-limited battery capacity in the path of Hurricane Irma more range, Clean Technica has reported.
An emergency firmware update was issued by Tesla on its Model S and X vehicles with 60 kWh of capacity, which actually have 75 kWh batteries installed.
Teslarati reached out to Tesla for comment on the matter and confirmed that the update was actually pushed out for this reason, specifically for owners in hurricane-affected areas.
The firmware update from Tesla increases the range of the vehicles from 210 miles per charge up to 249 miles, which allows owners to drive that much further out of the storm area.
