Tesla code points to Ludicrous Mode, better battery in Model 3



The Tesla Model 3 might be getting a couple of improvements according to some lines of code found by notoriously eagle-eyed Twitter user Green.

In looking at Tesla’s software, Green found a couple of notable changes coming to the Model 3, including an inclusion of the company’s Ludicrous Mode and an option for a 100kWh battery, which is a nice upgrade from the car’s current 75kWh battery.

Of course, it’s important to note that Tesla is no stranger to changing plans for its vehicles and that sometimes even the things it promises don’t quite line up to reality (*cough* cybertruck windows).

Along with these finds, Green pointed out some other changes in the software that could point toward new options for Model 3 buyers. There could be new tire pressure sensors, new rim options, new options for glass roofs, and improved airflow.

These hints at upcoming changes to the Model 3 come only a month after the cars were updated to accelerate faster. If the Ludicrous Mode gets added to the Model 3, that 0 to 60 acceleration could bump down to 2.5 seconds from the currents time of 3.2 second on the Performance model and 4.9 seconds on the Mid-Range.
