Tesla Model Y Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model Y: Pedals & Steering

Acceleration Adjust the amount of acceleration. Chill limits acceleration for a slightly smoother and gentler ride, whereas Sport provides the normal level of acceleration. (See Acceleration Modes).

NOTE: When Chill is selected, Chill displays on the touchscreen above the driving speed.

Steering Mode: Adjust the amount of effort required to turn the steering wheel (see Adjusting Steering Effort).

Regenerative Braking: When you release the accelerator when driving, regenerative braking slows Model Y and feeds any surplus energy back to the Battery. If set to LOW, Model Y does not slow down as quickly, but also feeds less energy back to the Battery.

NOTE: Regardless of the setting selected, the energy gained by regenerative braking is reduced if the Battery is full, or is extremely cold or hot (in which case, surplus energy is used to heat or cool it).

NOTE: The regenerative braking setting is not available on all vehicles.

Stopping Mode: Choose how you want Model Y to behave once regenerative braking has reduced the driving speed to a very low speed, Drive or Reverse is still engaged, and both the accelerator and brake pedals are released. You can adjust this setting only when Model Y is in Park.

Apply Brakes When Regenerative Braking Is Limited: Choose if you want the regular braking system to automatically engage whenever regenerative braking is unavailable or limited (for example, the Battery is cold or fully charged). When enabled and you release your foot from the accelerator pedal when regenerative braking is limited, the braking system engages to provide the same amount of deceleration you experience when regenerative braking is available. This results in consistent deceleration regardless of the state of the Battery.

Slip Start (on Rear-Wheel Drive vehicles): Turn on to allow wheels to spin.

Off-Road Assist (on All-Wheel Drive vehicles): Enable Off-Road Assist to disable traction control and allow wheels to spin when driving off-road.

Trailer Mode (available only if equipped with a tow package): Must always be active when towing a trailer. Some Autopilot features and rear sensor functionality may not be available.
