• Tesla offers Acceleration Boost upgrade to Tesla vehicle owners
  • A new video showcases what the upgrade could do to a Tesla Model 3 EV
  • The owner shares that his Tesla Model 3 hit 60 mph in just a matter of 3.48 seconds

Tesla offers Acceleration Boost upgrade to Tesla Model 3. While it is a paid upgrade, there are Tesla owners who would like to have this on their electric vehicles. An owner of Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor AWD recently availed the upgrade and now shares of experiencing improved acceleration that enables the mid-tier Model 3 to hit 60 mph in 3.48 seconds.

Last week, Tesla enthusiast and YouTuber Quantrillous Montgomery purchased the $2000 Acceleration Boost kit for his Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle. The paid boost, according to the electric vehicle maker, could reduce the 0-60 mph of Tesla Model 3 from 4.4 seconds to 3.9 seconds. If the latest claim of Quantrillous Montgomery is to go by, it appears that the paid acceleration boost surpassed the expected speed of the Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor AWD.

The owner used a Dragy device to gauge the stats of his recently upgraded Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle. During his first run, the device recorded a 0-60 MPH time in a matter of 3.72 seconds, which is a lot faster than the anticipated 3.9 seconds Tesla said the paid boost would offer. The next run was a quarter0mile time recorded at 11.82 seconds, which is again very impressive.

The owner made another sprint, which allowed him to hit 60 MPH in 3.48 seconds, again, much faster than the claim Tesla has about its paid accelerated boost. The paid acceleration boost of the electric vehicle maker paves the way to a new frontier for the company. Tesla could use this to raise its revenue, considering that releasing such feature cost very little in the part of the company.

You can watch the video shared by Tesla Model 3 owner Quantrillous Montgomery. The footage is that of his Model 3 Long Range All-Wheel Drive electric vehicle showcasing performance after getting the paid Acceleration Boost upgrade. Meanwhile, a new patent filed by Tesla reveals that the company is aiming to produce a more affordable, better, and longer-lasting battery cell.

The patent talks about new chemistry that will help the company achieve this objective. Tesla has long been working on improving its battery cells, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk once said that it wants to develop a one million miles battery cell.
