Tesla has released a software update for its electric vehicles, which introduces two curious functions.
The update 2017.44 is designed for electric cars Model S and Model X. One of the implemented changes was called Chill, the second – Comfort Exit.
Chill is reportedly a slow-acceleration motion mode. If this option is selected in the settings, the car will accelerate more smoothly, which will provide an increased level of comfort. This can be useful for newly-made owners of electric cars. In addition, such a regime is useful in the transportation of older people, children or fragile goods. Of course, the standard acceleration mode is preserved.
The Comfort Exit function, in turn, is designed to improve the comfort of getting into and out of the car. After activating this option, when the car is disconnected, the driver's seat will be automatically retracted and the steering wheel will be lifted up. The subsequent start of the car will return the "steering wheel" and the chair to their usual places in accordance with the preset settings.
Note that in the third quarter of this year Tesla delivered a total of 26,137 electric cars. Of these, the Model S and Model X had 25,915 copies. The rest was made by Model 3. The company's revenue for the three-month period reached $ 2.98 billion, which is approximately 30% more than the result for the third quarter of last year.
