Do Teslas have an accelerometer (Summon)?

    Is that why it won’t start Summon on an incline & stops moving when on an incline?

    I believe so. Have you ever noticed when you are stopped on a slope, and the car is in “Hold” mode, a warning pops up telling you that you should press the brake to get out of Hold rather than press the accelerator (at least it does this on the Model 3).

    I think it's because the power needed to go uphill looks very similar to running into an obstruction. So to be on the safe side, the car stops.
