Tesla Model Y: Using Summon to Park and Retrieve your Vehicle

Tesla Model Y (2020-2023) Owner's Manual / Autopilot / Summon / Using Summon to Park and Retrieve your Vehicle

Follow these steps to use Summon to park your Model Y:

  • Align Model Y within 39 feet (12 meters) of the parking space so Model Y can follow a straight path into or out of the space in either Drive or Reverse.
  • From outside the vehicle, initiate the parking maneuver by touching Summon on the mobile app, then holding down the Forward or Reverse button.

NOTE: If the Require Continuous Press setting is No, you do not need to hold down the button, just press and release.

NOTE: You can also initiate the parking maneuver from inside the vehicle (see Starting Summon Before Exiting the Vehicle).

Summon shifts Model Y into Drive or Reverse (based on the direction you specified) and drives into or out of the parking space. When parking is complete, or if an obstacle is detected, Summon shifts Model Y into Park. Summon shifts Model Y into Park when:

  • Model Y detects an obstacle in its driving path (within the Bumper Clearance setting that you specified).
  • Summon has moved Model Y the maximum distance of 39 feet (12 meters).
  • You release the Forward or Reverse button (when Require Continuous Press is turned on).
  • You press any button to manually stop Summon.

If you used Summon to park Model Y, you can then use Summon to return Model Y back to its original position (provided Model Y has remained in Park), or to the maximum Summon Distance that you have specified (whichever comes first). Simply specify the opposite direction on the mobile app and Summon moves Model Y along the original path, provided no obstructions have been introduced. If an obstacle is detected, Model Y attempts to avoid the obstacle while staying very close to its original path (Summon does not steer around obstacles).

NOTE: To use Summon to move Model Y multiple times in the same direction (not to exceed the maximum of 39 feet (12 meters), cancel Summon and then restart the parking process using the same direction.

NOTE: Although Summon can move Model Y a short distance laterally to avoid an obstacle, it does not attempt to steer around an obstacle to return Model Y to its original driving path. Only Smart Summon (if equipped) can steer Model Y around objects.

NOTE: Summon requires that Model Y can detect a valid key nearby.

WARNING: Model Y cannot detect obstacles that are located lower than the bumper, are very narrow, or are hanging from a ceiling (for example, bicycles). In addition, many unforeseen circumstances can impair Summon's ability to move in or out of a parking space and, as a result, Summon may not move Model Y appropriately. Therefore, you must continually monitor the vehicle's movement and its surroundings and remain prepared to stop Model Y at any time.

     Driving in Low Temperatures

    Tire performance is reduced in low ambient temperatures, resulting in reduced grip and an increased susceptibility to damage from impacts. Performance tires (summer applications) have reduced traction in ambient temperatures below 40º F (5º C), and are not recommended in snow/ice conditions.
