There is a fresh FUD flying around about Tesla downgrading China made Model 3 hardware from 3.0 to 2.5, for Chinese customers due to coronavirus. Fake news media are saying Tesla has revealed that it installed older, slower processors in new cars because of supply chain issues caused by the coronavirus outbreak. This is a blatant lie.
According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, those that complained about receiving a hardware 2.5 instead of hardware 3.0 in their China made Model 3 cars, don’t actually need the 3.0 version because they didn’t order Full-Self-Driving FSD.
In a statement though, Tesla said it would upgrade the hardware free of charge, when supplies are available and ofc after buyers order FSD.
