Inside Elon Musk’s Tesla Model X — 4 Pics Of The Touchscreen

Originally published on EV Obsession.

As you no doubt saw, the Tesla Model X was unveiled to much fanfare two nights ago, and at the end of the unveiling, CEO & product architect Elon Musk left his black Tesla Model X (Vin #1) on stage for people to explore the new electric SUV.

Of course, some visitors are more curious than others. A wonderful person (or so I’m guessing) who goes by the handle “spentan” on the Tesla Motors Club forum took a bunch of shots of Elon’s Model X touchscreen — flipping from one screen to the next and taking a shot, it seems. We are very grateful, spentan! Here’s a look at the pictures:

Here are some of my thoughts from perusing the screens:

  • First of all, it’s just awesome how sharp, clear, and easy to navigate these screens are. There’s no other car company on the planet with such great touchscreens.
  • The reminder that your door is open is nice. I wonder if that does away with the annoying beeping sound that cars typically have when a door is open/ajar.
  • Elon likes to drive with the suspension very low? No surprise there. 😀
  • Nice that it has a “Jack” suspension option. I imagine that’s also on the Model S as well as other nice cars.
  • “Slip Start” looks like a very nice feature to have, especially on a “utility” vehicle like this.
  • Either Elon is not into “Creep” mode or he just didn’t want anything accidentally happening and his beautiful Vin #1 Model X driving off the stage.
  • Regenerative braking: of course he’d have it on full blast!
  • Seems that he’d have “Sport” mode on for the steering…
  • … but let’s be honest, we have no idea at this point if these controls have been tampered with by curious guests or the driver tasked with bringing Elon’s Model X on stage.

To close out, it’s pretty cool that you can manually set speed limit warnings that are offset a bit from the actual speed limit, and that you have various levels to choose from with the “Collision Avoidance Assist.”
