The new Cheetah mode in the Tesla S model pushes the electric car from 0 to 100 km / h faster than you can drink a sip of water.
As part of a recent Tesla Cars hardware update, the company has introduced a number of features, such as an updated level. security and a brand new feature called "Cheetah".
In the Tesla S model, there is already a similar mode called Ludicrous +, which acts as a sport driving profile, but the Cheetah function adds an extra 46 HP to the electric motor. In this mode, the vehicle can produce up to 823 HP.
It's called "Cheetah" because after activation, it reduces the car's front suspension by 15 cm, placing it in a position similar to the wild predator.
Several months ago, o Elon Musk Announces significant upgrades for model S. Following the announcement, Tesla released a new update software which provided minor upgrades for the S model and the Model 3, but it was not the upgrades that Elon had promised.
It seems that the Cheetah function is that promise, which you are now giving to the public.
Brooks, a fan of drag racing on YouTube's DragTimes channel, tested the increased performance of a Tesla Model S Raven using the Cheetah feature.
In addition to increasing power and a downtime, the new update also increased the battery's thermal limit, providing more stable performance.
Brooks, using the Cheetah function, achieved a time of 2,41 seconds for 0-100 km / h.
He then looked at the stable performance of the Cheetah function. With every effort he made at 0-100 km / h, the only thing that came down was charging the battery while the performance remained the same.
The results so far look quite impressive, but more comprehensive tests will show us the true picture of the new operation. Even Porsche Taycan loses power when the battery charge is reduced despite the company's so-called stable performance. We must therefore judge Tesla's performance by the same criteria.
Another feature of Tesla's Cheetah function is its extensive operating time. The user was once able to use such features for about 4 seconds. Now, Cheetah lasts about 10 seconds.
Eventually, with the new update, Tesla brought a huge improvement to its vehicles. Porsche Taycan has overturned the Tesla Model S as the fastest car in its class. However, it seems that the S model can conquer the top.
