Tydligen ligger det redan ett class action lawsuit i USA, utklipp
” The second lawsuit, titled "David Rasmussen v. Tesla, Inc.," case number 5:19-cv-04596-VDM was filed in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California and arose after owners of affected Tesla vehicles began reporting significant range decreases following a series of software updates in May 2019 that appear to have bene issued by Tesla in response to recent cases of battery fires worldwide.
After several months of investigating potential causes for the range decrease, it appears that the most likely culprit is that Tesla discovered a widespread defect involving its Model S and Model X vehicles and knew that their vehicles would be at a high risk of catching on fire if charged to 4.2 volts, or 100% capacity, as advertised and sold to customers.
Lead counsel Edward Chen commented, "Tesla advertises these cars by their battery capacities like 60, 70, 75, 85 kWH etc. Tesla sold these cars with the advertised capacities and knew that they wouldn't be safe if charged fully to max battery capacity. Tesla knew that they shipped out and delivered cars with this defect, yet they failed to inform customers of the defect. They thought that they could sneak around disclosure by using software updates to limit the ability to fully charge the batteries. What happened after, of course, is that owners like [David] my client saw an immediate range drop of approximately 30 miles or so after updating his car with Tesla's updates [2019.16.1 and 2019.16.2].
What's even worse is Tesla's failure to acknowledge the fact that their own software updates limited the battery cap and throttled performance of their cars. They knew this and blatantly lied to people like [David] my client when he tried to get his battery replaced under warranty. ”
