In an earlier report, it has been informed that an over-the-air update can now display the status of the vehicle's tyres. Though this update was not announced by the EV company, some customers noted the update and shared it online. This new feature will help the owners to know the condition of the tyres of the electric vehicle if they have been worn out or if the tread depth is too low.
Tesla has also rolled out the new Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta software update, version 10.6 recently. This update is an early version of Tesla's autonomous driving software and it is currently being tested by a number of owners who have been selected by the automaker through its ‘safety test score’ programme. The update has been rolled out to the drivers with a safety score of ‘98’ or above. Despite the update, the company has shared that the driver needs to stay alert all the time as the FSD Beta version is considered to be a Level 2 driver-assist system.
