Tesla deactivating some features on used cars after owners sell them privately

Have you heard the story about the used-car dealer who removes the window tint from trade-ins – so he can sell window tint as an option to the next customer? Now it appears electric car maker Tesla is doing something similar but with optional electronic features. According to a report by CarScoops, Tesla is remotely deactivating features on some of its vehicles in the United States when they are sold from the original owner to a used-car buyer.

2019 Tesla Model S, Model X get a range boost

Tesla has used new electric motors to extend the range of its Model S and Model X Long Range variants, which can now cover 595km and 523km on the EPA test cycle respectively. That's up from 540km in the Model S. It's a handy upgrade, especially when you consider the 100kWh battery still holds the same amount of energy. According to the company, the extra range comes from better cooling, lubrication and bearings, along with better gear designs.

Tesla adds Dog Mode, Sentry Mode

Tesla has added two new software features to the Model S, X and 3, thanks to one of its over-the-air updates. The first is Sentry Mode, designed to deter potential thieves. If someone leans on a car with Sentry activated, the car switches into an 'Alert' state and shows a message on the central touchscreen, warning the potential thief the car's cameras are turned on.
