Tesla releases new update to allow owners to remotely limit their car speed
Tesla electric vehicle owners will now be able to remotely limit the speed of their vehicles, thanks to a new mobile app update which is being released by the automaker alongside a vehicle software update.
According to the details shared by Tesla Motors, the new speed limiter feature will be accessible by Tesla owners with vehicle software version ‘2018.24 or above’ and the new mobile app update version 3.4.1.
However, since Tesla Motors is gradually rolling out the vehicle software updates to its electric cars, it may take some time for all Tesla owners to get the updates.
While announcing the new speed limiter feature released for Tesla owners, Tesla said in a statement: “Limit vehicle speed and acceleration with speed limit mode.” The automaker further added that the feature will allow owners to set maximum vehicle speed “between 50-90 mph (80-145 km/h).”
The new speed limiter feature which Tesla is rolling out for the owners of its electric cars via a new update comes after an earlier release of the ‘Valet Mode’ capability. That feature essentially enabled Tesla owners to put a series of temporary limitations on their vehicles, such as limiting the vehicle’s top speed to 70 mph, and limiting power and acceleration to 25% (80 kW), as well as some other capabilities.
