Tesla releases a Model S / X operation video, how to unlock, start the car, and use the Autopilot

Tesla posted ten videos of how to operate the 2022 Model S and Model X on the tubing. In the video, Tesla succinctly explains how to unlock, start the car, and use the Autopilot feature.


In the unlocking vehicle section, the narrator demonstrated in detail how to unlock Model S and Model X with a mobile phone, a spare key card, and a remote control key. After that, Tesla also used a video to show how to open and close each door of Model S and Model X, and also showed the opening and closing tracks of the falcon wing door in an all-round way.


For the proud autopilot system, Tesla officials also specially made a long video showing how to use the active safety function (AS), traffic awareness cruise control function (TACC) and automatic steering (Autosteer), and other functions. It seems that the official also realized that the system needs to be explained carefully.


Interestingly, even though the Model S, Model X and Model 3, and Model Y use the same Autopilot system, Tesla explained it in the video.


I have to say that the entire video is very smooth, and it also shows how meticulously Tesla has considered users when designing high-end models, which is also a big improvement over previous models. However, it is not known when the latest Model S and Model X will be available in China. Impatient users can take a look at how to drive these two cars.


The following is the text compilation of some videos by Chess, with slight deletions on the basis of not changing the original meaning.


1. Three unlocking modes Press the brake to start the vehicle


In the video, the staff demonstrated the three unlocking modes of Model X: mobile phone unlocking, card unlocking, and remote key unlocking.


When unlocking Model X with a phone, the user's phone needs to be connected to the car via Bluetooth, which can be successfully connected even without a network.


Once connected, users can use the Tesla app to open the car, control various doors, and make charging settings, among other settings.


Tesla also provides users with a spare key card, which needs to be carried with them. Users can swipe the card under the camera on the side pillar of the driver's seat to unlock the door, or lock the car in the same way.

The operation video prompts that after the user sits in the main driver, he should put the key card in the position where the mobile phone is wirelessly charged, then press the brake to start the vehicle, and then the icon on the front instrument panel will flash to remind the user of the current driving mode. The user can proceed to the next step.


In addition to the above two unlocking methods, Model X also supports remote key unlocking. Users only need to carry the key fob with them, Model X will automatically unlock when the user approaches the vehicle, and the user only needs to press the brakes to start the car.

In addition, the key fob can open and close multiple doors. Press the rear button of the key fob twice to open the trunk, and press it again to stop the trunk from moving. Press the rear button of the key fob twice to open the trunk, and press it again to stop the trunk from moving.

The aluminium front trunk can be opened by pressing the button on the front of the remote control key twice. Press the top button of the key fob once to lock the car, press twice to unlock the car, press three times to close all doors and lock the car, and the side button of the key fob controls the falcon wing doors.


It is worth mentioning that car owners can also add new physical keys in the central control setting menu, but a spare key card is required to complete this operation, and the central control setting menu can also manage all keys.


2. Multiple modes of opening the falcon wing door can be automatically adjusted


As we all know, the Model X is also equipped with very cool falcon-wing doors, and Tesla has also designed a variety of opening and closing methods for the front doors and falcon-wing doors. However, users need to ensure that there is enough space around the Model X to support the opening and closing of the falcon wing door before opening and closing it.


First, users can control the opening and closing of Model X doors on the center console. Second, users can also control the doors through the Tesla app on their phones.

In addition to supporting the above two opening methods, the main driver door can also be opened through the physical button on the inside door handle, or by pressing the outside door handle.

As for the closing method of the main driver's door, it is even simpler. After the driver gets into the car, if the door is not closed, the door can be automatically closed by pressing the brake.

In addition, users can also set "Auto Door" on the car menu. After the setup is complete, when the mobile phone or Bluetooth key bound to Model X is close to the door and there are no obstacles around, the main driving door can be opened automatically.


Users can also click the top of the remote control key to open the driver's door, and double-click to open the doors on both sides of the driver's seat.


The falcon wing door opens in a similar way to the main driver's door, but the user can press a button inside the car to pause the falcon wing door. The falcon-wing door can also adjust the range of opening and closing according to the monitored surrounding environment. Users can also use the buttons in the car to adjust the opening range of the falcon-wing door.

Users can close all open doors with one key through the Tesla app on their mobile phone, or press the top of the remote key three times, and can also set the top of the remote control key to close all doors once in the car menu.


3. You still need to be vigilant when using various automatic driving functions


It is understood that the last time Tesla made a separate video explaining the self-driving function was three years ago. Tesla's Autopilot software has also been updated several times in the three years.


In the autopilot system explanation video of Model S and Model X, Tesla mainly talked about the autopilot system's active safety function (AS), traffic awareness cruise control function (TACC) and automatic steering (Autosteer), and other functions.


Among them, Tesla's active safety function can make the vehicle decelerate in time in dangerous situations, and can also help the vehicle adjust the direction of travel in time to achieve automatic avoidance.

The video narrator prompts the user to set the maximum speed in the menu when using the traffic-aware cruise control feature. After this function is turned on, the car owner can release the switch and let the car drive and turn automatically, but the system cannot recognize all objects, so the car owner still needs to be prepared to take over.


In addition, the automatic steering function can accelerate, decelerate, and steer according to traffic lights and stop signs.


It should be noted that when using the above functions, the user can use the automatic driving menu switching function on the car screen. Different cars have different configurations. Before using, the user needs to check the automatic driving function configuration of the vehicle in use in the menu.


The explanation video also reminds us that when the car is cruising automatically, the user also needs to hold the steering wheel and be ready to take over the car at any time.


In the video, the instructor also focused on explaining the role of the left and right rollers during driving.


Slide the left wheel up and down to adjust the media or phone volume, and press the left wheel to pause playback, mute, or unmute. Slide the left scroll wheel left or right to switch tracks.


Press the scroll wheel at the right end, the car screen will display the planned blue lane and automatic steering signs, blue represents automatic. After this function is turned on, the system will automatically adjust the forward direction to ensure that the car is in the middle of the lane and drives forward.

The user can increase the speed by turning the right scroll wheel upwards, and decrease the speed by turning the right scroll wheel downwards. When automatic steering, if the system detects that the user's hand is not on the steering wheel, the instrument panel will pop up a warning until the user puts his hand back on the steering wheel and applies a small turning force.


When the user presses the right scroll wheel again and slams on the brake, the automatic lane keeping and automatic steering functions will be canceled, and the user can take over the vehicle.


It is worth noting that the new Model X and Model S have moved the steering, lighting, wipers, whistle, voice, and other control keys to the steering wheel, and made virtual keys. The virtual keys on the central control can also control the vehicle forward and backward. Wait. It may take a while for new users to get used to it.

As for the other functions of the new Model X and Model S, they are similar to those of the Model 3 and Model Y, and will not be elaborated on for the time being.


Tesla's new video whetted the appetite


At present, the latest Model X and Model S have been listed in the United States and other places, and bloggers have also shared videos of these two cars. But the earliest delivery time for the new Model S in the United States will be at the end of the year, and the earliest delivery time for the new Model X in the United States is April next year.


Many people left a message under the video, expressing that they were too anxious to wait. However, the ten new car videos officially released this time have also made many people addicted to their eyes. Looking forward to the latest Model X and Model S being launched in China as soon as possible to meet the needs of Tesla fans.
