I just got my model s. Has anybody else gotten dizzy or nauseous after driving?
You are having delayed sticker shock!
My dog gets sick if I don't drive gently enough.
It's the new car smell.
Could it be wind buffering from the rear hatch?
I get nausea in my S85 after flooring a few times & I'm still under 50 & not the "delicate type", so a P85 or above was a complete waist, its been explained g-forces or blood flow with our eyes or in our brains are the cuase.
All joking aside, my wife and kids complain about dizziness when I launch from my P85.
I guess I've already gotten use to the acceleration, but they haven't.
@hankinjax - yes, it's motion sickness and I experienced it in the beginning. In an ICE car, when you see something ahead for which you need to slow down, you take your foot completely off the accelerator and the car just coasts. In your Tesla, when you take your foot completely off the go pedal, the regeneration kicks in and slows the car dramatically. This is the issue. You'll need to get good at using the pedal to moderate your speed and instead of completely letting off the pedal, just ease up on it a little and try to mimic the coasting of a gas car.
Yes and I drive very sedately Before I got the Tesla I first had that feeling driving the Volt It goes away after a few days The subject has been discussed before. I think it has got to do with the disconnect your brain has with noise ,movement Not unsimilar to seasickness
I nearly got my girlfriend sick while she was in the back seat on my test drive. A day or two after delivery I learned how to adapt to the way it drove. All good now.
No, but you might be sensitive to the new materials in the car, so try setting the vent to outside air.
It might also be the level of regenerative braking, so you could set the corresponding value to Low under Controls > Driving. Note that I don't recommend this for the long term since you will recover less energy, and that will negatively impact your range.
Only time I felt a little bit dizzy was when I tried to drive with the rear view camera on as the top half of the console. The movement agains t the direction of travel out of the corner of my eye was triggering motion sickness.
Change regenerative braking from standard to low. I do that when I have passengers.
I did for the first 10 days or so, then it went away. As others have mentioned I suspect it was due to adapting to the regenerative breaking and "one pedal" driving.
We had the same problem when we took delivery. The new car smell was so strong it was nauseating. Had to leave the windows open in the garage for a few weeks to let it air out. Now my wife only complains of whiplash from acceleration.
Didn't know this was a problem. I know the regeneration is weird at first when driving, but it is absolutely no different from friction brakes on an ICE, physically speaking.
I don't know if the lack of noise exacerbates the forces, but I have rode in cars that accelerate more forcefully than even the P85D. A torque junky, I am, and I have never had these symptoms.
Hasn't happened to me, Denise, or any passengers in 65K miles.
If it because of acceleration, the effects of 1.1G (launch) you are experiencing the normal results. After our initial test drive (a few launches) I was feeling sick. I commented to one of the twenty-somethings back at the showroom about the motion sickness and probably my age. He smiled and said that everyone gets sick it just depends on the number and frequency of launches. Google the effects of 1+ G on a human. After a few times of launching our P90DL I would rather have a few more miles of range vs the 2.8 sec launch. 3.1 is plenty fast.
Turning on the rearview camera while going forward is not fun either.
My son who never complained of how I drive in my Infiniti M35, got nauseated pretty much right away in the front passenger seat. The feeling went stayed regardless of how good I did with 1 pedal driving. Once I turned off Standard Regenerative Braking and switch to Low, he's ok now.
