Electric auto maker Tesla says it has temporarily increased the battery capacity of some of its cars to help drivers escaping Hurricane Irma. If 60kWh buyers found they needed more range and wanted to upgrade later, they could... or if Tesla wanted to suddenly bestow owners with some extra range in case of an emergency, they could. "Features you've come to expect can be taken away or degraded not because the hardware has changed but because decisions were made about what the software can do", he said. Tesla has software locked their batteries to 60 kWh, but unlocked the Model S/X 60/60D vehicles to their full 75 kWh capacity for those stuck in Florida.
Tesla said that for those drivers under mandatory evacuation orders, it remotely reprogrammed the vehicles to increase the battery capacity.

Drivers were able to use about 80% of the battery which gave them 200 to 230 miles of range, but with this free and temporarily upgrade, additional range is available.
