Model 3 Chill Mode

15 Apr ‘Chill Mode’ comes to Tesla Model 3 with the latest software update

Someone asked Elon Musk for it a few days ago on Twitter, but seems like it was already in the works — ‘Chill Mode’ is officially here for Tesla Model 3 owners with the 2018.14.1 over-the-air software update.

‘Chill Mode’ adds a less aggressive acceleration mode than the standard mode which makes a lot of sense in the urban stop-and-go traffic. Tesla’s ‘chill mode’ doesn’t seem to be same as the ‘Eco Mode’ that some other manufacturers offer for fuel/range savings.

The reason it being not equal to ‘Eco Mode’ is that many Tesla Model S and X drivers using it for sometime don’t report a significant increase in range but it offers a ‘smoother more gentler’ driving experience as Tesla calls it in the release notes (screen-shot and text release notes below).

We included a test video below of the ‘Chill Mode’ performed by famous Tesla/EV evangelist ‘Bjørn Nyland’ on his Tesla Model X P90DL to get an idea of how it actually affects the driving experience.

Chile: a new acceleration option
You can now select Chill as an acceleration option in your vehicle. This option makes acceleration more gradual — ideal for smoother driving and a gentler ride for your passengers.

To use the Chill option, tap the Controls icon on the bottom left corner of the touchscreen, tap Driving, and then in Acceleration, choose CHILL
