60 to 85 kWh Battery Upgrade

by Moderator

This is a costly upgrade where you trade in your old 60 kWh battery for a new 85 kWh battery.  Tesla would value your current battery based on mileage and time.

In one case, with a 10-month old battery with 11,000 miles, the total cost of the upgrade was $18,400.

As of April-2014, Tesla no longer offers this upgrade, but you can always ask. Tesla does change its mind on occasion!


There are also third parties that take a salvaged car battery and will replace your smaller battery. eBay is one place to search for what’s available.
