Twin-engine Tesla Model 3 trained to driftNovember 11, 2018
The company showed how the track mode works in electric cars
Tesla has published on its website a video demonstrating the work of the new track mode in the twin-engine Model 3 Performance. Special settings of the electronics allow using the electric motors to control the sliding of the car. They change the algorithm of the energy recovery system and shift the bar of the temperature limitations of the power plant with simultaneous increase in cooling.
Track mode operation is based on data from a variety of sensors. A special controller processes the information and appropriately distributes the moment: more torque on the rear axle spins the car in a turn, on the front it levels the car when the rotation is excessive. At the same time, the recovery system and the air conditioning compressor that cools the power electronics starts to work in a different way.
All-wheel drive modifications Model 3 American manufacturer of electric vehicles will present in May. Performance cars are capable of accelerating to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 3.5 seconds. Their maximum speed is 249 kilometers per hour. Power reserve – 499 kilometers. Price – at least 78 thousand dollars.
