Tesla equips its electric cars with the new Launch Control

April 6, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The American company announced the release of a new version of the launch control for its electric cars, which was called the Cheetah Stance – “Cheetah Stand”.

According to the Electrek website, the new feature is being integrated into the Tesla Model S liftback and the Model X crossover of the Raven series, which are equipped with the Smart Adaptive Air Suspension air suspension. It is expected that in the new Cheetah Stance mode, the electronics will lower the front suspension and change the stiffness of the shock absorbers to improve traction and reduce lift. Thus, in profile, the car will resemble the stance of a cheetah preparing to jump.

Meanwhile, AutoTimesNews became aware of the introduction of a new option in Tesla autopilot. Now the company is just testing it, but soon all the cars of the brand will be able to recognize the traffic signal and stop if necessary.

In a video clip posted on Twitter by Out of Spec Motoring, Model 3 recognizes a series of traffic lights and ultimately stops at the one that lights up in red. The user who posted the video notes that the car also stops in front of the Stop sign. One comment says that this feature will be part of the next autopilot update.
