In Tesla China’s latest Giga Principle video, the company dives into the world of over-the-air (OTA) software updates and the benefits they bring to owners. The first Giga Principle video highlighted Tesla’s impressive safety record.
Over-the-air updates have become standard for Tesla, and as a leader in the automotive space, the video shows what the technology can bring to its vehicles.
The video begins by detailing the Model 3 performance track mode update, which went live in 2018. The feature did not require hardware updates and was made public by modifying and updating vehicle software settings.
The video then goes through a series of Tesla owners talking about their favorite features that have been updated over the years.
The video attempts to connect OTA updates with the vehicle being more than a car, but a mobile smart device. However, as an intelligent terminal, it is constantly evolving and on the way to perfection.
Adding to that mantra, the video seems to confirm that Tesla owners don’t need to buy the latest car as they get all the next-gen features through OTA updates.
Plus, with updates, Tesla can maximize existing on-board hardware to deliver a better driving experience.
At least to say it’s an interesting video, and while we don’t learn anything new, it’s a good piece for new and potential Tesla customers to understand a little better the power of the OTA update .
