Tesla will add automatic “enter/exit” seat positions in future software update after Twitter request
Tesla is leveraging both its CEO’s popularity on twitter and its cars’ over-the-air update capability to respond to another customer request, with CEO Elon Musk promising on twitter that a future software update will include a function to automatically move the seat and steering wheel into a more comfortable position for entry and exit when the vehicle is put in park.
The Model S can be slightly difficult to get in and out of for less-flexible people, so this feature should be a nice addition for many customers. I’ve personally seen several owners who have an “enter/exit” driver profile on their Teslas, with the seat and wheel position saved for easier exit and entry. So while this workaround was always possible, Tesla’s software update will make it more automatic.
