Tesla has been relentlessly improving its cars and now a new software update which is coming to the relatively new Model Y will enhance the range of the vehicle. The software update numbered 2020.40.7 is behind these new efficiency improvements.
"Your car's range has increased with new software that improves the efficiency of the motors and the climate control systems," Tesla said in the update release notes.
It also notes that there is no impact on the efficiency of the HVAC system or the performance of the vehicle with these range enhancements. Fundamentally, there are no trade-offs.
"Note: These changes do not impact acceleration or overall climate control performance," Tesla added.
As reported by Electrek, a Tesla Model Y owner noted the new software update accounted for a meagre enhancement in range to something between 320 and 325 miles. Tesla officially has also enhanced the range of the Model Y from 316 miles to 325 miles.
This is not the first time the company has done this as it recently increased the range of the Model 3 by 15 miles.
