Tesla 2020.4.11 Software OTA Update To Boost Ranges Of Model S/X

In mid-February, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that all S/X cars made in recent months were actually above the EPA range announced, so the company will soon release new software that unlocks the increased range for free.

Tesla updated its Model S and Model X offerings last month, now instead of 373 miles for Model S and 328 for Model X, cars got 390 and 351 miles respectively.

 

Today, several Model X owners have shared information that their cars have received a new update.

User Reddit u/sudogreg wrote: "My Tesla Model X delivered in early February 2020 just received the range update firmware. 2020.4.11. Charging to 100% and I'm showing 354 miles. Stopping at 90% is putting me at 316. teslafi is showing my update as well. "

Twitter user greg also shared this great news.

Tesla updated the EPA score for cars that were released in recent months, but they had to install a new software update to actually show these performance improvements in the car. The new update is called 2020.4.11, and essentially its main function is to demonstrate the new range. The notes to it don't mention any new features.

The range has always been a significant advantage for Tesla. Despite the fact that new electric cars regularly appear, California automaker's cars top the list of Autotrader electric cars with the longest ranges.

Long distances are not only a matter of pride for an electric vehicle manufacturer, but also an important factor in attracting customers, since the limited range has been named one of the biggest obstacles that inhibit an electric vehicle from wider adoption.
