Elon Musk earlier this year teased a Ludicrous easter egg in its Tesla Model S P100D that made it the quickest car to reach 60 mph, and now Tesla promises a more “chill” feature. It’s latest driving mode makes for a “gentler ride” in EVs, which are known for its jerky acceleration.
According to YouTube channel DragTimes, “chill mode” in a Tesla Model S 100D takes the vehicle from 0 to 60 in 7.2 seconds. Another new feature that comes with the update is “exit mode” that builds on the driver’s profile, adjusting the steering wheel and depth automatically for an “easier exit” that’ll adjust back to your driving profile once you return.
What are your thoughts on the new modes? In related news, Tesla recently purchased automation company Perbix to help ramp up Model 3 production.
Promising early results from the Ludricrous Easter egg. Looks like 0 to 60 mph in 2.34 sec (Motor Trend spec) might be achievable…
