Tesla discontinues the Model S 60 & 60D effective April 16, 2017.

Tesla is discontinuing the Model S 60 & 60D. These are the smallest battery configuration one could buy from Tesla. Apparently Tesla found that most people ended up wanting the larger batteries, so they are streamlining their production and ordering process by eliminating this battery configuration.

Tesla notes that "Customers who still want the opportunity to own a 60 kWh Model S will have until April 16, 2017 to place their order." And if you have a 60 kWh Model S, you can upgrade your battery to a 75 kWh capacity "via an over the air update." For a fee, of course. The 60 kWh batteries were all 75 kWh batteries masquerading as a smaller battery. This gives each owner the ability to "unlock" the larger battery by paying Tesla a fee, then they push out a software update allowing access to the full capacity.
