Tesla owners to soon get a ‘Dog Mode’

The modes he was talking about are for Tesla Model S, and they are called Dog Mode and Sentry Mode. Now, it looks like the promising auto mode will be released soon.

That leaves the starting price of a Model 3 at $42,900, still substantially above the $35,000 price Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk originally promised. The cameras would then record any vandalism and sound an alarm without the owner's input. Prior to starting deliveries, it will open up the Model 3 configurator for United Kingdom drivers on its website within 1-2 months, and there is a small chance that it will be offering the mid-range option. But that's not the only thing that will arrive as he said that the "Dog Mode" will be released too.

Elon Musk did not elaborate his tweet though. People are still asking when exactly "Sentry Mode" and "Dog Mode" will be released to the public. The Tesla Model 3 will be coming in as the more affordable options out of all their offerings so far so it is important that they get it into the European market.

As of now, Elon Musk's SpaceX is wrestling with a potential schedule conflict between their two upcoming spaceflights, which need to happen soon or they'll lose their chance at a launch this year.

Now, Musk has confirmed (via Twitter, natch) that "Dog Mode" and "Sentry Mode" are ready to roll out via an over-the-air-update pushed to Tesla vehicles at no charge.

Tesla, however, looks like they did not wait for their boss' product as they were able to make some new yet similar mode. It will likely make use of Tesla's Cabin Overheat Protection, a feature that engages climate control to prevent extreme temperatures, but instead, keep the climate system running as normal.

However, up until now, the capacity shortages at the firm were resulting in longer waiting times and frustrated Tesla Model 3 customers. Otherwise, the best option is still to leave animals in their homes and not inside the vehicle.
