Tesla cars now scan for potholes to avoid damage

July 6, 2022

Trending News 🌥️

In a recent software update, electric vehicle maker Tesla ($NASDAQ:TSLA) confirmed that its vehicles are now scanning for rough roads, like potholes, to help avoid them damaging the vehicles by adjusting the suspension. According to Electrek, the car owners can activate the new feature by selecting “Comfort” under the Adaptive Suspension Damping setting, but the new feature may be dependent on where the vehicle is being driven — meaning it may not be available for every pothole and road crack. This new development raises the question of how this will affect Tesla’s market and earnings in the long term.

On the one hand, this new feature could be seen as a positive selling point for Tesla’s vehicles, as it highlights the company’s commitment to safety and customer satisfaction. On the other hand, some might argue that this is simply a case of Tesla playing catch-up with other automakers who have already implemented similar features in their own vehicles. Only time will tell how this new development will impact Tesla’s bottom line, but it is certainly an interesting development to keep an eye on in the coming months and years.
