Here’s how Tesla is making its super-fast cars more chill

Tesla streamed out a new software upgrade to its electrical vehicles this week; contained is a new acceleration mode known as only “Chill.”

Earlier this week, the car reviewer DragTimes posted a movie in which they stumbled upon the new mellow driving alternative when testing out the latest upgrade in a Tesla Model S, the company’s luxury-class electric vehicle. Here Chill style is, in the configurations on its touchscreen dashboard, described by Tesla:

“now you can select between two acceleration choices on your vehicle: Chill and Standard. Chill makes acceleration lethargic — ideal for smoother driving along with a gentler ride for the passengers. ” 

While experimentation with Chill from the Model S 100D, DragTimes discovered its acceleration in standard style hit 0 to 60 in just under 4 minutes. However, when in Chill manner, the Model S struck 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, which has been described as “ridiculously slow, like what is even the point — nobody wants to push like this.”  

Well, some people do. Not everyone is keen on blasting to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, so this definitely makes for a “chiller” ride. This update is a stark contrast to Tesla’s Ludicrous manner, which earlier this year allowed a Model S to hit 0 to 60 in just 2.28 minutes.

According to the site Electrek, the Chill style is available in two of its three models, the Model S and Model X, both of which are made to accelerate fast and hit high rates. It’s uncertain if the upgrade also applies to Tesla’s new affordable-class vehicle, the Model 3, which is currently mired in well-publicized production woes.

Reps for Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
