Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has announced through Twitter the Model S is about to get a software update which will "end range anxiety."

Towards the end of January we heard Elon Musk saying the Model S P85D will get a software tweak shaving 0.1s from the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint to just 3.1 seconds. Now, another post on Twitter says that next Thursday a conference will be held about an over-the-air software update for the entire Model S range which he promises is going to "end range anxiety."

We remind you the standard Tesla Model S which comes with a 60 kWh battery has an EPA-certified range of 208 mile (335 km) range, while the 85 kWh battery version will do 265 miles (426 km) before running out of juice. Up next is the 85D dual motor variant which has the same 85 kWh battery but can provide a maximum range of 270 miles (434.5 km). The aforementioned P85D focuses more on performance so it has a slightly lower range of 253 miles (407 km).
