Tesla Vehicles Have Limited Power From Software Bug

May 10, 2019—Tesla Performance vehicles currently do not have access to their full power due to a software update earlier this year that inadvertently removed features that enable full power output. The company says it is still working on the problem, according to Electrek.

Some owners complained that they were losing power when pushing their vehicles on ‘Ludicrous mode’ and/or frequently using ‘Launch Mode’, which is an electronic aid to assist drivers in accelerating from a standstill. The vehicles affected ended up permanently limited until Tesla removed those limitations in an update later in 2017.

From that point on, Tesla did allow owners to access the full power of their vehicles, but only when both Launch Mode and Max Battery Power Mode are on, according to the report.

Now, two years later, those same owners face not having full power.
