Tesla CEO Elon Musk Visits Norway to Address Service Capacity Issues

Water Cooler Tesla expected to roll out 'Dog Mode'

Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to reveal that the Dog Mode and the Sentry Mode will be rolled out this week.

A country of just more than 5 million people, Norway is nevertheless Tesla's third-biggest market thanks to generous incentives for low-emission vehicles and high taxes on regular cars.

A new software update (Version 9 2019.4) is on the near horizon that adds a constant Blind Spot Warning Chime (currently Teslas only chime during a lane change) and Auto-Folding Mirrors Based on Location feature that integrates with HomeLink and Global Positioning System, however, it's unclear if Dog Mode and Sentry Mode are included in this update.

During this past month's polar vortex, many electric vehicle owners complained about the lack of range and frozen door handles on their vehicles, including Tesla owners, AAA said.

The study found that cold temperature can sap electric auto batteries, temporarily reducing their range by more than 40 percent when heaters are used on the inside of the vehicle.

Tesla's plan with the Model Y is to be the best-selling SUV in the markets the company is popular in, particularly America and China. The company said that they will focus on the demand for the cars this year.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is confident about the success of the auto company's upcoming SUV, Model Y. Potentially, the electric SUV could dominate the market against all odds.

They have provided little or no information on how many are interned within them and how long they are being held. The dustup over Turkey's criticism contrasts with the close economic relationship between the two countries.

Musk had "constructive meetings" with the Norwegian service team's management over the weekend, Even Sandvold Roland, a local Tesla spokesman, said in an e-mail reply to questions.

Electric vehicle owners should be acutely aware that their cars might not get almost the same range in the winter months, according to a new study released by AAA.

Musk was no longer in Norway on February 11, the spokesman said.

The group's numbers were cut because there were no more Model 3s to deliver. The $7,500 credit dropped by half for Tesla on 1 January 2019.

The company has attempted to draw more buyers with two price cuts in recent months, but that has only gotten the bottom-end price of the Model 3 down to $42,900, which is not close to the $35,000 Musk promised when the vehicle was introduced in 2016.

The Tesla Model S and other cars from Tesla will benefit from the Dog Mode, another feature that will be introduced soon.
