What are Acceleration settings?

This feature is designed to control the way you accelerate. You can choose from Chill and Standard options.

In Acceleration settings, the Chill option will give gradual acceleration compared to Standard acceleration.

How to set Acceleration settings?

  1. Follow procedures 1-3
  2. Choose between Chill and Standard options on the Acceleration settings.

What is Steering Mode?

This feature is designed to customize your feel on the steering wheel. There are three options for this setting, Comfort, Standard, and Sport.

In Steering Mode settings, you can choose between comfort, standard, and sport modes. Setting the option to comfort mode would result in a very light feel on your steering; standard would give you a normal feel of the steering wheel, while in sport mode, your steering would be stiff. 

How to Set Steering Mode?

  1. Follow procedures 1-2.
  2. Choose between Comfort, Standard, and Sport on the Steering Mode.

What are Regenerative Braking settings?

This feature gives you an option on how your car would behave when you release the accelerator pedal while the car is in motion. There are two options for this setting, Low and Standard.

In Regenerative Braking, the Low option would give you a lesser deceleration when removing your foot from the accelerator pedal, but the battery charging function will be diminished.

However, the deceleration would feel normal in a standard model, and the charging function will also act normal.

How to set Regenerative Braking settings?

  1. Follow procedures 1-2.
  2. Choose between Low and Standard on the Regenerative Braking settings.

What is a Stopping mode setting?

This feature is designed to give you the option of how the vehicle would behave when taking your foot off the brake pedal while the engine is stationary. It has three settings, Creep, Roll, and Hold.

In Creep mode, the vehicle will move very slowly when the pedal is released. In Roll mode, the vehicle will roll faster than creep when the pedal is released. In hold mode, the vehicle will not move when the brake is released; you must apply the accelerator to move the vehicle.

How to set Stopping mode settings?

  1. Follow procedures 1-2.
  2. Choose between Creep, Roll, and Hold settings from the Stopping mode.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I maximize my tesla range?

  • To maximize range, it's important to watch your driving speed and enable regenerative braking when possible.

What is Tesla's hold mode?

  • If your vehicle is stopped, you can deep-press the brake pedal to put the vehicle in “Hold.” This is basically a park without actually being in the park.
