Tesla has released an Acceleration Boost upgrade for its Model Y compact SUV, available as a $2,000 USD purchase. This addition matches what has been available from Tesla for the Model 3.
The Acceleration Boost offers an improved 0-60 mph time, from 4.8 seconds down to 4.3 seconds (it should have been 4.20 seconds in typical Elon fashion), shaving off a half-second.
According to the purchase option, Acceleration Boost for Model Y Long Range All Wheel Drive requires the Tesla 2020.36 software update.
The Acceleration Boost option for Tesla Model Y was spotted on Reddit by user VividPen4, earlier this evening. It’s also available in Canada for $2,700 CAD.
