Tesla began to programmatically limit the range of some of its cars

In the US market, Tesla began to programmatically block up to 128 km of travel on older Model S. This was done after paid maintenance. According to the source, this is done in order to obtain a ransom from users in the amount of $ 4,500. After payment, the company returns access to the full mileage.

One of the Twitter users said that his used Model S 60, owned by his friend, had the battery changed. After that, the range will be 550 km, which is comparable to the Model S 90, whose battery capacity is 90 90 kWh. Later, the owner turned to the service to replace the on-board computer, and after that the car became like the Model S 60 – up to 422 km. Attempts to prove their case were unsuccessful, the service said that a full run could be returned for $ 4,500.
