Tesla news | Norwegian court fined Tesla for mileage drop due to software update
According to foreign media reports, a Norwegian court recently ruled that Tesla was convicted of restricting the charging speed and battery capacity of electric vehicles through software upgrades. The Norwegian mediation commission ordered Tesla to pay each client $16000.
According to previous reports by Electrek, after Tesla updated its software in 2019, the mileage of its electric vehicles dropped significantly, ranging from 12 to 30 miles. The vehicle involved is Tesla models produced between 2013 and 2015, and about 10000 customers in Norway may be affected.
However, Tesla responded to media reports at that time, saying that the purpose of the software upgrade was to "protect the battery and improve battery life", which only caused "a small number of car owners" to lose mileage.
