    Model X Wins the Golden Steering Wheel

    Some interesting production improvement highlights:

    Here are some of the ways Model X has gotten better with time:

    Falcon Wing Doors

    • 2x improvement in door sensor object detection
    • 25% improvement in opening/closing speed
    • Dynamic profile adjustment to indoor mode when roof sensor detects a low ceiling
    • 83% reduction in customer-reported issues with door opening/closing

    Powered front doors and remote keyless entry

    • Refined keyfob detection for smart automatic front door behavior as you approach, enter, or leave the car
    • 8x improvement in keyfob battery life; automated alert from the car if the battery gets low
    • Several improvements to power front door movement and latching system, leading to 51% reduction in door issues and improved performance on hills
    • Wind noise customer-reported issues reduced by 22% with a combination of hardware modifications and fit/finish improvements

    Interior Temperature Management

    • Introduced Cabin Overheat Protection by managing the maximum interior temperature of Model X through software
    • Improved HVAC performance by increasing maximum fan speed with an over-the-air software update

    Second row seats

    • Multiple over-the-air updates have enhanced seat motion, obstacle detection, pitch calibration, and usability
    • Software enhancements have added intelligent behaviors between seats, adjusting spacing differently, for example, depending on which rows are occupied

    Infotainment System
