Tesla Model Y: Creating a Driver Profile

When you first adjust the driver's seat, steering wheel position, or exterior side mirrors, the touchscreen prompts you to create a driver profile to save these adjustments. Your profile also saves various preferences you make while customizing Model Y. See Using Tesla Profiles to learn more about saving profile settings to the cloud for easy access across multiple Tesla vehicles.

To add a new driver profile, touch the driver profile icon at the top of the Controls screen. Then touch Driver Profile Settings > Add New Driver, type the driver's name and touch Create Profile. Follow the onscreen instructions to save mirror and steering wheel position to the driver profile. Check the Use Easy Entry checkbox if you want to save (or use existing) Easy Entry settings in which the driver's seat and the steering wheel are automatically adjusted to make it easy to enter and exit Model Y.

NOTE: For quick access, the driver profile icon also displays at the top of the touchscreen when Model Y is parked.

If you change the position of the driver's seat, steering wheel, or exterior side mirrors after you have saved or chosen a driver profile, the touchscreen prompts you to Save the new position or Restore the previously saved position (other settings are automatically saved). To change a setting without saving or restoring, just ignore the prompt.

NOTE: Valet mode is a built-in driver profile that limits speed and restricts access to some Model Y features (see Valet Mode).

NOTE: To stop automatic adjustments that are in process based on a driver's profile, touch Stop on the Driver Profile dropdown menu. Automatic adjustments also stop if you manually adjust a seat, mirror, or the steering wheel.

Easy Entry

You can define an Easy Entry setting that moves the steering wheel and driver's seat to make it easy to enter and exit Model Y. Any driver can use the Easy Entry setting by associating it with their driver profile. When the Easy Entry setting is associated with a driver profile, the steering wheel and driver's seat automatically adjust when in Park and the driver's seat belt is unbuckled, allowing an easy exit from Model Y. When returning to the vehicle and stepping on the brake pedal, settings automatically adjust back to the settings used by the most recent driver profile (or based on the key if it's linked to a driver profile).

To use Easy Entry with a driver profile, ensure the Use Easy Entry box is checked.

WARNING: Never use Easy Entry to move the driver's seat to the full rearward position when a child safety seat is installed on a rear seat located behind the driver's seat. With reduced clearance, the movement of the seat may impact a child's legs, cause injury, or dislodge the seat.

Selecting Between Driver Profiles

To adjust Model Y based on a driver's profile, touch the driver profile icon at the top of the Controls screen. Then choose the driver, and Model Y is adjusted based on the settings that have been saved to the chosen driver profile. See Using Tesla Profiles to learn more about saving profile settings to the cloud for easy access across multiple Tesla vehicles.
