Tesla has OTAed again! Model Y now has a range upgrade of about 16 km!

Tesla has optimized the energy consumption performance of the Model Y in the software update version 2020.40.7, improving its range.

The improvement in range in this software update is achieved through the following two aspects:

  • Increased motor efficiency;
  • Improved air conditioning efficiency.

After optimizing the efficiency of the power and air conditioning systems, Tesla emphasized that this update will not cause a weakening of acceleration performance or a decrease in air conditioning effect due to the energy consumption improvement of these parts. It only optimizes energy consumption and will not emasculate performance.

In the update on the official website of Tesla USA yesterday, the range of the Model Y Long Range AWD version has been increased by 10 miles (about 16 km), and the range of the Performance version has been increased by 4 miles (about 6 km). This OTA push also provides the corresponding upgrade to the already sold Model Y.
