Tesla began to issue new order notices for prospective owners of Model 3 LR models in Australia, telling them that the operating experience of the on-board computer had been optimized by replacing with a new processor, but it also stated that the new processor would "consume more More power”, the WLTP cruising range will be reduced by 22 kilometers to 602 kilometers.
In this notice, Tesla also requires prospective owners of Model 3 LR to accept this change before further delivery procedures can be carried out.
This mileage change is not only in Australia, but the cruising range of the Model 3 LR sold in Europe has also changed. When equipped with 18-inch wheels, the WLTP range has changed from 637 kilometers to 626 kilometers (11 kilometers less); when equipped with 19-inch wheels The process has changed from 614 kilometers to 602 kilometers (12 kilometers less), and according to Tesla's official notification message to prospective car owners, the replacement of AMD's new chip does have an impact on the overall cruising range.
The Model 3 LR in Australia or Europe is exported from the Shanghai factory in China, but the mileage of the Model 3 (original SR+) and Model 3 Performance has not changed.
As for whether it is worthwhile to reduce the overall cruising range by 11-22 kilometers in exchange for a substantial increase in the smoothness of the in-vehicle system, I wonder what everyone thinks? It still seems acceptable, right?
