Tesla CEO Elon Musk promises to end 'range anxiety'
Tesla's ever-busy CEO, Elon Musk promised to end 'range anxiety' on Twitter. The company plans to bring an over-the-air update to the cars' software, making battery tracking easier. Though details are scarce just yet, the press conference the company issued for Thursday is sure to clarify everything. Since current electric vehicles take a long time to charge, range anxiety kicks in as the battery starts slowly discharging. Drivers can feel rushed to their destination, knowing that they might be forced to wait through a 2-hour charge cycle, should they run out of battery capacity.
Even though Tesla's patented Supercharger stations need a more managable 30-45 minutes, there's only a handful of them scattered around the world. If Tesla can make energy management on EV's less stressful, that's sure to be another victory for the quickly-growing market. The OTA update affects the entire Model S fleet, so every owner should expect it to arrive shortly.
