It seems Tesla’s introduced a new driving mode: ChillThe antidote to all of this Ludicrousness
It seems that we’ve all gotten a little too caught up with the sheer speed that electric cars can deliver. What about the other side of the coin, the use to which electric cars are perhaps even more suited than monumental acceleration? Where is the mass supplication to exceptionally quiet, relaxed cruising? Oh, right; this is TopGear.com, not ThingsOnlyOldCurmudgeonsLike.com.
In any case, it seems that we have an ally in Tesla, who seems to have introduced the perfect antithesis to its rather aptly described Ludicrous mode: Chill.
The Chill setting rounds off acceleration, reverting your Model S or X back to the big, spacious cruiser it always had the potential to be. Sure, you could achieve much the same effect with an exceptionally gentle right foot, but why do something yourself when you can have an engineer do it for you? That’s what makes our generation the best, no?
