Tesla Has Added A “Chill Acceleration” Mode
November 17th, 2017
We’ve heard of Tesla’s Ludicrous Mode, but now the automaker is offering Chill Mode for those not as interested in speed. According to The Drive, Chill Mode is catering to people who aren’t fans of car rides and prone to motion sickness.
Chill Mode reportedly makes acceleration more gradual which makes for a smoother ride for passengers. YouTube channel, Drag Times, took an updated Tesla Model S 100D and checked it out and found that even in Chill Mode, the car accelerates in 3.7 seconds which is almost 11% quicker than what Tesla reported.

This week Katie has two gorgeous rides that best represent the quality and variety you’ll see at the Summit Racing Show Car Series. Former General Manager of the ISCA Bob Millard will be her guest to talk about the 28 car shows in the series. The International Car Show Association (ISCA) is the sanctioning body behind the series. Owners from all over the U.S. and Canada compete for the title of Grand Champion.
In the studio is a 1939 Ford Coupe owned by Bob’s wife Sandy. It’s got a small block Chevy 350 bored over to 355, custom paint, custom interior and a slick BASF “red” wrap. The second car belongs to Megan Tracy and is a show-stopping 1970 Camaro RS. It’s powered by a Chevy 350 making 385 horsepower and features custom interior and custom wheels.
