Tesla's new "chill acceleration" setting is a great idea. The torque of a
P100D is sometimes just too much
10:27 AM - Nov 5, 2017

If you want a smoother ride, you’re in luck.

The high-tech electric vehicle automaker Tesla is rolling out a new feature
in its cars, and it sounds like it’ll be perfect for anyone looking for a
calmer, more relaxing ride. It’s a new acceleration model titled “Chill,”
designed to soften and smooth out the more dramatic, surging acceleration
speed that the Tesla Model S and Model X have previously offered.

The change is described in the release notes for the new update, which went
live on Sunday. But as Electrek notes, it won’t be immediately rolled out to
all Tesla drivers. After the update, there will be two acceleration modes, a
“Standard” one for those who like the rapid acceleration and instant
torque―in a test, the Tesla Model S P100D was reportedly capable of going
from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds on its highest setting―and a
“Chill” one for people who prefer a slower, more gradual speed increase.

Previously, the acceleration modes had slightly more stressful,
frantic-sounding names: Insane and Ludicrous. Chill and Standard, by
comparison, sound pretty cozy.

Why the next Tesla should take on agriculture
Nov 3, 2017  There's a strong business case for climate action in
agriculture, says CGIAR ...  opportunities exist in agriculture. Even the
Tesla mogul’s brother Kimbal Musk has recently been championing a reform of
North America’s food systems to make wholesome food affordable. But the
potential to transform agriculture offers even broader rewards globally to
benefit both people and planet ...
