Tesla is not allowing range upgrade on new 150 km Model 3 in Canada – BUYER BEWARE – Electrek

My original thinking was hackers would find a bypass to this software range lock.  But Tesla already has software range locking on all Model S (or perhaps on every Tesla?), since it offers “standard” range and optional (read: $$$) upgrades.  So if such hacking was possible, it’s probably already done.  If not, then it might be unhackable.
