Tesla Starts Delivering Update to Improve Model 3 Braking Performance

Tesla Starts Delivering Update to Improve Model 3 Braking Performance

That also allows braking to recapture some battery power.

Early last week, Consumer Reports published their Model 3 review and relayed some interesting findings about Tesla's mass-market EV.

The negative review arrives amid a blitz of negative Tesla headlines.

Manufacturing problems have led Tesla to repeatedly miss production targets for the Model 3 sedan, and raised doubts about Musk's promises that the company will stop burning cash by the third quarter of this year.

Musk has been outspoken about the criticism Tesla has received, and the media's reporting on it. Despite what appear to be genuine problems with Model 3 manufacturing and Autopilot technology, Musk claims that reporters have no credibility and are just trying to get clicks.

During testing, the Tesla Model 3 specialists were dissatisfied with the braking system and noted the complexity of some functions of the auto.

This concession, while stating the obvious for a company that recorded successive losses in the last two quarters, is another reminder of how unprepared Tesla was to turn from a manufacturer of technologically advanced electric vehicles that usually cost over $ 100,000 each to a manufacturer auto, the price of which is close to the industry average for new vehicles.

Although Tesla team had initially challenged the report and stated that under their own tests, the distance for braking was found to be around 133ft and as low as 126ft with specific configuration. "Stopping distance results are affected by variables such as road surface, weather conditions, tire temperature, brake conditioning, outside temperature, and past driving behavior that may have affected the brake system". Those controls are embedded in the vehicle's touch-screen, which many reviewers have lauded for its sleek design and convenience.

"These types of complex interactions with a touch screen can cause driver distraction because each act forces drivers to take their eyes off the road and a hand off the steering wheel", Consumer Reports states. The company is simply unable to prepare the cheapest version by the end of this year, ideally long after the production rate of 5,000 vehicles / week, he said in a tweet.
