Tesla Model Y adds over 40 new features since 2021

The recent release of the updated version of Tesla’s Model Y has brought notable changes, according to insights shared by Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) enthusiast Nic Cruz Patane. 

Tesla’s Model Y receives feature updates through Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates. While Tesla positions OTA updates as a hallmark of innovation, their impact on  mobility will depend on factors like update quality, user experience, and long-term vehicle performance.

Tesla Model Y has introduced over 40 new features since September 2021, with the latest update being full self-driving (Beta) V12.3.1. This raises curiosity within the electric vehicle community about the reported upgrades and their potential impact on the Model Y lineup.

Enhancements and innovations

Full-self driving beta is offering drivers access to advanced driver assistance features, providing active guidance and assistance while driving under their supervision. 

Beyond autonomous driving, the introduction of track mode improves the Model Y’s performance on the racetrack, catering to adrenaline enthusiasts. 

Cloud profiles is a feature that allows users to take their personalization settings with them when they switch vehicles.

Features like auto canceling turn signals, and the ability to apply brakes when regenerative braking is limited, enhancing convenience and energy efficiency.

Entertainment and customization are also prioritized with improvements to the Model Y’s MCU2 performance, offering features like dash cam functionality, theater mode, and a built-in browser.

Safety features such as the blind spot camera, drowsiness warning, and auto headlights with wipers aim to enhance driver awareness and road safety.

How Tesla’s vehicles evolve with every update

Tesla vehicles can receive software updates wirelessly, unlike traditional vehicles that require a visit to a service center. This allows Tesla to improve functionality and add new features to cars over time. 

These updates can enhance the car’s capabilities, potentially increasing its value and functionality. This is in line with a growing trend in the auto industry, where carmakers are increasingly looking to deliver software updates over the air. 

There are two steps to receiving a new update: downloading the software (which requires Wi-Fi), and installing it. For convenience, Tesla owners can initiate both downloads and installations using the Tesla mobile app.
