The news came as a surprise because Musk said on the company’s fourth-quarter earnings conference call that the car could have a range of about 380 miles. Even more surprising, he revealed that Tesla had spent at least a few months on the cars, resulting in higher range. According to Musk’s tweet, owners can unlock additional range smiles with free software upgrades.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on when the owners could expect the upgrade.

In addition to the Model S, Model X will also be upgraded. The EPA estimates that the Long Range Plus will have a range of 351 miles, an increase of 23 miles. Like Model S, it will receive a free software upgrade.

Notably, the updates followed Musk’s announcement that it was very close to 400 miles of range. As for how Tesla does this, Musk said on Twitter that a lot of “hardware improvements” are key.
