Tesla will introduce temperature controls for preventing auto cabin overheating

Elon Musk revealed that the upcoming software update for Tesla will allow users to modify the temperature at which the automatic Cabin Overheat Protection system would activate. Tesla cars come with a climate management system called Cabin Overheat Protection. In exceptionally hot situations, the capability can lower the cabin’s temperature for several hours.

The Cabin Overheat Protection can function for 12 hours after passengers have left the car or until the battery loses 20% of its charge, citing the Model 3 Owner’s Manual. When activated, the feature can function without air conditioning, in which case only the fan runs, or with the air conditioning running when the cabin temperature is above 104°F (40°C).

Tesla cautions owners that even with Cabin Overheat Protection turned on, a car can still become dangerously hot. With only Cabin Overheat Protection turned on, drivers shouldn’t leave kids or pets alone in their cars. Tesla offers additional options, such as Dog Mode and Camp Mode, for users who prefer to remain in their cars when they are parked.

With record heatwaves, Elon Musk emphasized that automatic Cabin Overheat Protection should have a significant impact. When he tweeted the announcement, the Tesla CEO appeared to be speaking from experience. Up until 7 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, July 12, Austin/San Antonio, Texas, is under a heat advisory, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). According to the NWS, there will be “dangerously hot conditions with high temperatures between 101°F (38°C) and 108°F (42°C).

We also came to know from the sources that, as per the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Texas had its sixth warmest June on record in June. Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida each had one of the ten warmest Junes of the year. The NOAA also said that since the start of 2022, there have been nine billion-dollar weather and climate disasters in the United States, including tornadoes, hail, and significant drought.
