Tesla Model S driving: You wouldn't want to scare anyone with that insane acceleration right?

Tesla Model S driving: You wouldn't want to scare anyone with that insane acceleration right?

It seems Tesla is sending over-the-air updates in a bit of a rampage as of late.

Possibly, taking some focus away from recent issues with Model 3 production, or due in part to questions posed to Tesla's Jon McNeill about Autopilot parity, or simply the automaker's goal of fastidiousness, we are now seeing a barrage of OTA updates over the past month or so.

A few months back, a Twitter user suggested to Tesla CEO Elon Musk that the vehicles should be programmed to make it easier to exit. Musk promised an update to move back the seat and raise the steering wheel. Following another suggestion, Musk also added that the vehicles will reset the seat and steering wheel back to the preferences of the individual user once they approach the vehicle.

These features are now appearing in the Tesla Model S and X as part of a new update. Additionally, the update adds a new "Chill" acceleration setting. Being that these vehicles will push you back in your seat and take you by surprise due to the instant torque of the electric motor and powerful battery packs (even without Ludicrous Mode engaged), the automaker has brought forth a new option.

Perhaps you don't want to scare your passengers, especially if we're talking about young children or senior citizens. Maybe some people are just looking for a less dynamic driving experience at times. We're pretty confident that it will also be a way to get some extra range out of your vehicle when the performance is not necessary.
