Tesla’s Cure for Range Anxiety

Tesla's Cure for Range Anxiety

Tesla announced that they want to end range anxiety. How are they going to do it? Tesla has come up with a software update that basically makes it impossible for a driver to run out of range (unless they want to).

So how have they done it? They have created software called Trip Planner that the software of the car is constantly running. Trip Planner communicates between both the car and destination chargers and will warn the driver if he or she start to go out of electrical range. It also knows where the convenient charging locations are located. Along with providing the best information on where to charge, the car is also getting more accurate range estimations by calculating elevation changes and wind speed to account the most accurate range estimation available.
