Tesla gives some Model S cars remote upgrades due to Hurricane Florence

Tesla is remotely enabling supercharging and boosting battery capacity in some older models to make it easier for Tesla owners to make it to safety from the path of Hurricane Florence, away from evacuation areas. The models in question are some Model S 60s and some Model S 70s, which either haven't had the supercharging option enabled at purchase time, or have software-locked battery capacity. The information comes from the website of Triangle Tesla, which is a Tesla owners' organization independent from the carmaker.
