In the US, the base Tesla Model X crossover costs at least $ 74690. In the first six months of 2020, Tesla improved the Model S hatchback's autonomous range twice in February, peaking at 628 km in February and at 647 km in June. The Model S also received updated powertrain software to make the EV even more dynamic. It's the same with the Model X crossover, which this year has become not only faster, but also more autonomous. And very soon, according to Elon Musk, the next updates "Model" and "Model X" will be available for download "over the air", this time they will affect the suspension and autopilot.
The updated air suspension software for the Tesla Model S and Model X electric vehicles is now available for download, and the heavily modified autopilot will be ready in 6-10 weeks. Elon Musk is currently testing a preliminary version of the program in his personal car.
In the US, the base Tesla Model X crossover costs at least $ 74690. For comparison, Audi The e-tron Sportback costs $ 77. Tesla's autonomous mileage is 400 km, and acceleration to 565 km / h takes 97 seconds. The same figures for Audi - 4,4 km and 446 seconds.
After installing the improved control program, the adaptive air suspension should provide a more comfortable ride and more collected cornering behavior. In addition, the driver will be able to adjust the ground clearance and memorize settings depending on the specific area. At some point, the car will automatically raise or lower the cabin and calibrate the shock absorbers based on information previously stored in memory. Autopilot, on the other hand, is moving towards major enhancements that will make it more sophisticated in all aspects and add new features. For example, Tesla will be able to slow down in front of bumps and go around them.
