We have also received a statement from the representative of the company: "Due to these exceptional circumstances, and to help you better prepare to evacuate and get to safety, your vehicle has been adjusted at no cost to you to temporarily access the additional battery capacity until September 16th".
The report said Tesla's proprietary charging network includes about 20 Supercharger stations throughout Florida.
The change was apparently made after a Tesla owner in Florida reached out to the company and asked for a temporary upgrade to make it out of the evacuation zone.
A Tesla spokesperson confirmed to FLORIDA TODAY certain vehicles in the area were temporarily updated to help with evacuations.
A TeslaModel S 60 owner in Florida reached out to us with nearly 40 more miles than in his usual full charge and a new "75" badge in his auto software. The option would result in a less expensive vehicle with a shorter range, but the option to pay to remotely enable the longer range at a later stage.
These more affordable models feature a 75kWh battery pack, which is limited to 60kWh via software.
On the road, according to Elektrek, this battery bump works out to about 30 miles of additional range on a full charge. Tesla appears to have done just that for Florida drivers in light of Irma.
According to commentators, Tesla chose to take action after the Florida-based owner of one of its cars contacted the company and asked for a temporary upgrade to make it out of the evacuation zone.
The 60D Model X and the 60 and 60D Model S vehicles were introduced past year as a cheaper version of the higher end vehicles. Most Model S and X buyers have been willing to cough up the extra cash to get all the range possible from their battery vehicles.
