Tesla Model 3/Y Track Mode with Acceleration Boost Upgrade is Coming
For Tesla Model 3 and Model Y owners purchasing the Acceleration Boost upgrade, it appears Track Mode is coming, with an option to disable traction control.
That’s according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who was asked by owner Bennett on Saturday, “could [Model] 3/Y owners with Acceleration Boost upgrade get Track Mode or at least a traction control disable function? Would be helpful for some of us who want to track our cars.”

Musk responded with a simple “ok”, suggesting he will be making plans for the request to be fulfilled.
Now, we know with Musk his timeline for promises are usually far out, so tamper your expectations on when track mode will arrive for Long Range versions of the Model 3 and Model Y with Acceleration Boost.
Tesla’s Acceleration Boost is available for Long Range versions of its Model 3 and Model Y, a $2,000 USD upgrade that makes acceleration faster.
For the Model 3, the upgrade improves 0-60 mph times from 4.4 seconds to 3.9 seconds; the upgrade for the Model Y Long Range improves 0-60 mph times from 4.8 seconds down to 4.3 seconds.
Track Mode is already available on the Model 3 Performance, with the feature allowing drivers to set stability controls, view a live g meter and also have their vehicle powertrain optimized for cooling while track driving.
The upgrades can be made within the Tesla mobile app and owners can test out the boost for 24 hours and get a refund, should they change their minds.
