Active Spoiler

Model X has a rear spoiler designed to improve aerodynamics. If Model X is equipped with the active spoiler, the position of the spoiler can vary depending on the status and speed of Model X:

  • When Model X is in Reverse or when driving speed is below 16 km/h, the spoiler provides maximum visibility behind Model X.
  • When driving speed exceeds 72 km/h, the spoiler lowers to the position that provides the most effective aerodynamics.
  • When Model X is powered off and locked, the spoiler retracts.

To allow the spoiler to automatically move as described above, touch Controls > Service > Spoiler Mode > Automatic. To disable automatic movement of the spoiler and keep it in its extended position, choose the Extended setting.
