Tesla Rolls Out Dynamic Brake Lights for European Model 3

Tesla’s 2019.8.3 software update contains an interesting new feature for European Model 3 owners called Dynamic Brake Lights that aims to help reduce accidents.

According to the release notes, “If you are driving over 50 km/h (31 mph) and brake forcefully, the brake lights will now flash quickly to warn other drivers that your car is rapidly slowing down. If your car stops completely, the hazard warning lights will flash until you press the accelerator or manually press the hazard warning lights button to turn them off.”

While the feature is offered in Europe by other automakers like BMW, certain government restrictions on automobile lighting make it unavailable in the U.S.

The good news is that Tesla is one of the few automakers that would be able to easily add the feature if approved in the U.S., due to the ability to push software updates.
