2013 Tesla Model S: Software Update in Store

April 30, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

On Monday morning, after a weekend with our 2013 Tesla Model S, this screen was waiting for me. As soon as we complete the update, which takes about two hours, we'll let you know what changes it brings about, if any.

In so many ways, the Tesla feels like a piece of technology. It's just one that goes very, very fast.

    I'm surprised they don't tell you what is in the update like most app stores.

    I know their are release notes available AFTER you accept the update. I guess the end-around is to check the forums. In other news, they finally came to their senses on *requiring* Tesla service to honor the warranty and are dropping that it.

    Version 4.3's main new feature was the ability to set charging times in advance, to take advantage of cheap night-time electric rates. In addition, the accuracy of the "rated range" readout numbers was improved in cold weather and the heating system was tweaked. I don't know if the update they're waiting for is that one or the next one. But yeah, they should be telling you what the update does when they notify you that it's available. I mean, with a 17" touchscreen, there is plenty of room for the release notes.

    Maybe not the COMPLETE release notes, but surely a summary would at least be possible?
