Votre Pilote automatique est arrivé

En octobre 2014, nous avons commencé à équiper la Model S de toutes les technologies nécessaires permettant de déployer progressivement des fonctionnalités de conduite autonome : un radar à l’avant, 12 capteurs ultrasons positionnés de manière à appréhender l’environnement de la voiture dans un champ de 4,9 mètres quelle que soit sa vitesse, une caméra orientée vers l’avant et un système électrique d’aide au freinage haute précision contrôlé numériquement. La Model S est également équipée d’un GPS et de cartes numériques.

La version 7.0 du logiciel que nous dévoilons aujourd’hui utilise ces équipements pour mettre à disposition de nos clients des fonctionnalités de sécurité active d’une part et de confort d’autre part.

Tesla All Wheel Drive (Dual Motor) Power and Torque Specifications

Attempting to directly correlate horsepower ratings in petroleum burning vehicles to horsepower in an electric vehicle is a difficult challenge. The physics of an electric vehicle propulsion system are very different from a gasoline one. In an EV, electrochemical reactions in the lithium ion cells create electricity. That electricity flows through power electronics that control the voltage and current, then it flows to electromagnets in the motor that create powerful magnetic fields rotating the shaft to turn the wheels. The power required to rotate this shaft has the most correlation to traditional measures of horsepower. However, the chain actually begins in the electrochemical reactions that happen in the battery pack. Depending on the battery's temperature, state of charge and age, the amount of electricity extracted can vary widely.

Driving Range for the Model S Family

As the Model S family has expanded over time it has become more relevant to compare range from one variant to another with a consistent set of assumptions so our customers can know what to expect and make the best decision to fit their needs. This can be a bit difficult since the background test methodology and standards from the US EPA are evolving over time. There are also many customer vehicle configuration choices, both before and after purchase, that can affect range as much as or more than the vehicle platform choice itself.

Battery Swap Pilot Program

At an event in Los Angeles last year, we showcased battery swap technology to demonstrate that it's possible to replace a Model S battery in less time than it takes to fill a gas tank. This technology allows Model S owners in need of a battery charge the choice of either fast or free. The free long distance travel option is already well covered by our growing Supercharger network, which is now at 312 stations with more than 1,748 Superchargers worldwide. They allow Model S drivers to charge at 400 miles per hour. Now we're starting exploratory work on the fast option.

50 States in Model S

Lita Elbertson had never seen a lake before she decided join her friend Michael Fritts on an epic cross-country tour of the United States. In fact, the Hawaii resident hadn’t even seen a duck. Or a Model S. 

There are probably more straightforward ways to make contact with a duck, but few are more fun than driving a premium electric sedan to every state in the United States. That’s what Elbertson and Fritts, a Model S owner from Upstate New York, set out to do late this summer.

The House Always Wins

There have been several articles recently implying that Tesla, through clever machinations, maneuvered Nevada into providing an overly large incentive package for the Gigafactory. I love backhanded compliments as much as the next person, but this is untrue.

All Our Patent Are Belong To You

Hier, les brevets Tesla étaient affichés dans le hall de notre siège social de Palo Alto. Ce n'est plus le cas. Ils ont été retirés, dans l'esprit du mouvement open source pour l'avancement technologique des véhicules électriques.

Désormais, la Model S a l'accent anglais

Nous avons sabré le champagne un samedi ensoleillé à Londres pour livrer les premières Model S avec volant à droite aux clients du Royaume-Uni. Le PDG de Tesla, Elon Musk, était présent à The Crystal, à l'est de Londres, pour remettre les clés aux cinq premiers propriétaires (dont l'auteur de Cinquante nuances de Grey E.L. James).

La voiture la plus « glissante » sur les routes

Fast, electric, safe — and a total "drag queen." Car and Driver magazine has found that the Model S is one of the "slipperiest" cars on the road (and yes, that's a good thing). In its latest issue, Car and Driver has published a comparison of five cars with low drag areas. Using a wind tunnel to determine each car's drag and lift properties, the magazine declared Model S the winner, beating out the Toyota Prius, the Nissan LEAF, the Chevy Volt, and the Mercedes-Benz CLA250.
