From a total payout of $1.5 million, $525 will go to each owner of a affected vehicle.


Back in 2019, we told you about some issues Tesla Model S batteries were having with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Model S owners received a software update from Tesla that was meant to address a problem with the battery pack, but it actually reduced range.


Those Model S owners were so pissed off by the range reduction that they filed a class-action lawsuit, which they won, according to a report published on Thursday by Reuters. Furthermore, Tesla has agreed to pay out $1.5 million to owners of affected vehicles, which works out to about $625 per owner.


Those numbers sound small, and that's because they aren't. Purchasing a home in Los Angeles for $1.5 million is difficult these days, and for Tesla, it's nothing. Tesla says affected owners have had their homes' range restored since March of 2020, which is likely satisfying to their owners.


On a story like this, we've typically reached out to an automaker, but now that Tesla has no PR department, our options are to tweet at Elon Musk and hope for a reply, which appears unlikely. For us and for consumers, this is a bad situation.
