You can now purchase the ‘Acceleration Boost’ from Tesla, giving a big boost in 0-100 performance

Tesla Model 3 Acceleration Boost

Earlier today Tesla leaked an upcoming feature on their website called ‘Acceleration Boost’. The only information available at the time was that it was going to be a paid upgrade, as the information was appearing on the Upgrade page of your Tesla account, and that it would require at least the 40.2 software version.

Now tonight, Tesla has officially made the ‘Acceleration Boost’ upgrade available to Tesla owners. The upgrade will set you back $2,700CDN ($2,000USD), but will improve your 0-100km/h time by a full half second, from 4.6s to 4.1s.

Right now, it appears to only be available for dual motor Long Range (LR) variants of the Model 3. Canadian owners with the LR RWD (single motor) are reportedly not seeing the option in their account, and neither are Standard Range Plus (SR+) owners.

It is a little surprising that Tesla is making this acceleration boost a paid upgrade, when the last power boost in the 2019.36.2.1 software update was free. This upgrade will also be sent to your car via an over-the-air (OTA) software update.
