Tesla is currently accused of degrading the speed and battery capacity of its electric vehicles. Because of this, the court in Norway now wants the giant EV manufacturer to pay around $16,000 to thousands of its consumers.
However, the court didn't clarify which model is affected by the current performance issue.
Authorities also stated that the current fine will also increase since other legal efforts are already on their way to check if more EV owners in other countries are also affected by the degraded performance problem.
Aside from this, the Norway court also claimed that the performance issue is caused by the giant EV developer's software update.
To give you more idea, here are other details of the new Tesla software update issue.
Tesla Owners Previously Experienced the Issue
According to Electrek's latest report, various Tesla owners already complained about the degraded performance issue way back in 2019. They claimed that Tesla's software update dropped their electric car's range from 30 to 12 miles.
Based on the previous complaints, the car models that were affected at that time were Tesla Model S and Model X with 85 kWh battery packs, which were discontinued back in 2016.
Aside from these, Tesla owners claimed that the range dropped happened after installing the EV manufacturer's Tesla 2019.16.1 and Tesla 2019.16.2 software updates.
"My 2014 Model S 85 was getting Rated Range of 247 miles until May 13. Now after the next update, it continued to drop to now 217 miles. This is an 11% drop in 5 weeks," said David Rasmussen, one of the affected consumers.
He added that the battery capacity degradation of his Model S was pretty obvious over the last 100,000 miles. Aside from this, Tesla owners also complained about slower charging sessions when they visit different Supercharger stations.
