Delivery estimate from Model S Plaid+ changes to mid 2022

It used to say end of 2021 and now it’s mid 2022. I’m not sure if demand is really high or if they are just delaying it, interesting nonetheless.

First look at Tesla’s adaptive suspension for the Model S and X refresh

One of the recent additions for the Model S and X is the adaptive suspension. According to Tesla, this new suspension uses a predictive model to anticipate how the damping will need to be adjusted based on the road, speed, and other vehicle and driver inputs. Now that new owners are getting their hands on these new cars, greater information about it is going out. Here is a table of how the new suspension compares in terms of efficiency to the old one.

FSD subscription will require HW3

Up until now, you could purchase FSD and the price would include the hardware upgrade. However, it looks like the subscription won’t behave the same way and it will require HW3. We’ve also seen folks getting the HW3 upgrade ‘for free’ when purchasing the MCU 2 retrofit so… who knows? We can only wait and see.

If Smart Shift isn’t your thing and the central screen fails, there is a way of always selecting the gear, the car comes with P R N D capacitive buttons right under the wireless charger.

Love the visualization on the screen, it seems really intuitive, although I’m sure it will take time to get used to it.

New Model S refresh OS

I have to admin that I like it very much. I wonder how Tesla is going to adapt this (if at all) for the 3 and Y given that they need to leave room for the car visualization there.

No 'refresh' for Model X or Model S anytime soon

There have been a lot of rumors about a major refresh for the Model S and X for a while now. However, Elon just made clear on Twitter that they aren’t doing a refresh and that Tesla is constantly changing small (sometimes bigger) parts of the car. In my opinion, this doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible that they change something like the dash or something else, but they aren’t going to do it as a full refresh. Also, timing is something that no one knows. Honestly, if you like a current model just get it now, don’t wait because Tesla keeps on improving their cars constantly.

Plaid Model S walk around

Really cool to see another one of these! This one has handles that are the same color as the car, I don’t think I’ve seen that in any of the other prototypes spotted in the wild, I wonder if that is going to be an option.

Second row screen in S/X refresh will allow watching videos while driving

I mean… taxis, kids,… I can see many use cases in which allowing watching videos while driving (in the second row) is going to be a great experience without compromising safety. What do you think?

See how to change gears in the refreshed S and X

Refreshed S and X are coming without a gear stalk and instead, they have what Tesla calls ‘smart shift’. With the smart shift, the car will try to predict the gear that you want, which sounds great but, what if you want to override it? Well, it seems that you can just slide the car on the screen for it to change from D to R.

Tesla MS refresh with minimalist interior and M3 motors coming this year

I’ve been hearing about a Model S interior refresh since I got mine in Dec 2017. I guess if we keep saying it one day it will happen 😉. We love our Model S but definitely the interior has some room for a more modern design although I’m not sure that the mono screen - ala M3 - is going to make everyone happy. Definitely excited to see how Tesla can evolve a vehicle so beautiful as the MS.
