Tesla started the remote controlled effect of all Model 3 vehicles through a software update over a year after the start of production.
When automaker launched base model 3 to $ 35,000 with shorter range and new interior, it also pledged more upgrades to existing Model 3 vehicles through software updates.
The car manufacturer promised an increase in the range of all model 3 vehicles with a wide range of battery pack and rear-wheel drive engine, and a maximum power increase for all models 3 & 39's.
As we reported last week, Tesla already started pushing an update to increase the model 3 series.
Now, Tesla is starting to roll out the update of maximum power boost – through its firmware version 2019.8.2.
In the publication notes, Tesla writes about Peak Power Increase:
"Your car's high voltage has been increased by about 5%, which improves acceleration and performance."
Tesla said earlier that this increase in high voltage output would result in an increased top speed to 162 mph for Model 3 Performance, but all model 3 vehicles should feel a little more powerful.
Electrek's Jeff Benjamin received the update on his Model 3 Long Range RWD and noted that it "feels a bit more peppy."
During a call when he announced the base model 3, CEO Elon Musk briefly took these over-the-air upgrades and said Tesla now feels comfortable pushing model 3's battery pack and engine to higher levels after collecting data from being on their way to over a year.
As we have noted earlier, Tesla's efficiency gains requirement, which applies only to Long Range RWD Model 3 vehicles, is suspicious because it could already announce higher-range vehicles, but previously chose not to be too vague.
For the power boost, it is a much less controversial update and actually shows some impressive work from the automaker.
The fact that Tesla actually releases this capacity across all Model 3 vehicles clearly shows that they now feel more comfortable pulling more power from the Model 3 drive after gathering more real data.
