2016 Tesla Model X: Smarter Parking Sensors
by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on May 3, 2016
There's a lot about our 2016 Tesla Model X and our old Model S that I consider revolutionary. There are also features that are smartly evolutionary. Take the parking sensors for example
Parking sensors are nothing new. Some just beep. Others have a series of LED lights to indicate distance. Some have indicators like the one shown above that gives you a more visual idea of the surroundings.
Tesla takes it a half step further by including an indicator in inches. Having a countdown like this makes squeezing the Model X into a tight spot a breeze and when I come to think of it, it's likely just some added computer code rather than a piece of equipment. Whatever the case, I like it.
