Priced tagged at $66,000, 9 percent lower than the previous price, it is said battery of the vehicle can be software-upgraded to improve the range to about 250 miles on one charge.

Meanwhile, a source said the company s reviewing the problem and as of now hasn’t found it to be a widespread issue.

Following the report the Tesla stock lost $3.13 a share to $229.36 with a fall of 2.6 percent by Thursday afternoon on Nasdaq Stock Market trading.
