Nog meer veiligheid en gemak met Summon

Eerder dit jaar werd met de Tesla 7.1 software update een reeks Autopilot features voor het verder verbeteren van gemak en veiligheid van de rij ervaring geïntroduceerd. Vanaf vandaag wordt versie 7.1.1 via een over-the-air software update naar de Model S in Nederland gestuurd. Veel van deze functies betekenen een stap voorwaarts richting een veiligere autonome toekomst, maar het op afstand parkeren, ook wel bekend als Summon, is hiervan de meest significante.

Uw Autopilot is er

Het inzetten op de ontwikkeling en verbetering van technologieën die zelfrijdende auto's mogelijk maken is één van de kerndoelen van Tesla. In oktober vorig jaar zijn we begonnen de Model S van hardware te voorzien om de eerste stappen op weg naar zelfrijdende technologie te introduceren: een radar voorin, 12 ultrasonische lange-afstands-sensoren, die in alle richtingen en op elke snelheid zo’n 5 meter rondom de auto om zich heen kunnen kijken, een camera die vooruit kijkt en een zeer nauwkeurig, digitaal aangestuurd, elektrisch remassistentiesysteem. Met de nieuwe Tesla 7.0 software-release kunnen deze hulpmiddelen tal van actieve veiligheids- en comfort-features bieden, die ontworpen zijn om samen te werken met de zelfrijdende mogelijkheden die de Model S al biedt.

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.

Introducing the All-Wheel Drive Model S 70D

Today, we are introducing the Model S 70D, an all-wheel drive electric car with a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds and a 240 mile range at 65 mph.

Even at a starting price of $75k, the Model S 70D offers a broad and compelling set of features. Moreover, when one factors in the cost advantages over an internal combustion engine vehicle, including fuel savings and incentives, the actual cost of owning Model S 70D comes to about $55k over five years (the average length of new car ownership).

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 batterij vervangen 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.
