英语新闻:特斯拉软件新本领:开车中途不可能耗尽电量

英语新闻:

The 6.2 version software update, which was announced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Thursday during a press conference, includes several new features, including range assurance, an app that communicates in real time with Tesla’s supercharger networks and destination chargers. The app advises drivers when they’re at risk of driving beyond the range of reliable charging locations. Once alerted, a map guides the driver to the closest charger, factoring in elevation and wind speed to determine range with extreme accuracy, Musk said during the call.

“All the complexity is taken care of automatically. You don’t need to think ahead or do any calculations,” Musk said. “It’s impossible to run out unless you do so intentionally. The car will even double check and you’ll have to say, ‘yes, I’m sure’ twice before it’s possible to actually run out of range.”


Tesla TSLA -2.52% has also added a trip planner that automatically picks a route through the appropriate superchargers if charging is needed. The planner selects the fastest route to the destination and breaks it into three- to four-hour legs between superchargers. Once the vehicle is charged, the car messages the driver via the Tesla phone app.

The route should match up to when a driver would normally want to stop, use the restroom, have a bite to eat or grab a coffee, Musk said.

“There’s maybe the rare occasion where someone wants to drive non-stop for 10 hours and wears diapers or something, but that’s unusual,” Musk said. “For almost any trip, the time driven to time charging ratio works out really well.”

The software update should be released to all Model S owners in about 10 days, Musk said.


The Palo Alto-based electric car company has completed numerous over-the-air software upgrades to the Model S since the tech-centric vehicle was first released in 2012 to fix bugs, enhance safety features, performance and customize the driving experience—all in an effort to make the car better over time.

Other features in this software update, include automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning to help drivers change lanes safely and valet mode, which limits the Model S’s driving performance and restricts access to settings and personal information.

factor in: 包括,把…计算在内

bite: (非正式)简单的一餐

grab: (非正式)因忙碌而赶紧,抓紧吃或睡觉

diaper: n.尿布

emergency braking: n.紧急制动

blind spot: n.盲点

本周四的新闻发布会上,特斯拉首席执行官埃隆•穆斯克发布了更新版的6.2版本软件。更新后,该软件将具有多种新的特色功能,包括一款保障里程的应用,它可以实时与特斯拉的超级充电站网络及目的地充电桩联系。穆斯克在发布会上说,当特斯拉车可能驶出可靠充电地点的覆盖范围时,该软件将提醒驾驶者注意。一旦发出警示,软件就会根据车所在的海拔高度、风速等因素,极其精确地判断里程范围,提供路线图,指引司机将车开到距离最近的充电站。

“所有复杂操作都会自动完成。您不需要提前考虑,也不需要做任何计算,”穆斯克说,“除非有意为之,否则驾驶者不可能超出充电的里程范围。(软件)甚至会对此复查。在可能超出充电的里程范围以前,驾驶者将不得不两次回复(软件):‘是的,我确定。’”

特斯拉还增加了一款规划路线的应用。如果需要充电,该应用会自动选择一条路线,前往适合所在车辆的超级充电站。这款应用会挑选最快到达目的地的路线,并确保每行驶三到四小时就会有一座超级充电站。一完成充电,车就会通过特斯拉的电话应用通知驾驶者。

穆斯克说,这条路线应当符合驾驶者正常的需求,比如考虑到他们可能中途停下车休息、去洗手间、吃点东西或喝杯咖啡。

“可能在极少数时候,有人想不停歇地连续开十小时车,或者开车时穿了尿布什么的,但那是不常见的,”穆斯克说。“驾驶时长与充电时间要成比例,这几乎适用于所有的行程。”

穆斯克还说,大约十天内,所有特斯拉Model S型车的车主就能使用这款更新版的软件。

自2012年首次出售以高科技为核心的Model S以来,总部位于加州帕洛阿尔托的特斯拉已多次升级该车型的OTA软件,提高了安全功能和汽车性能,让车主能定制驾驶体验。所有这些改进都是为了让车越开越好。

此次软件升级增加的其他功能包括:自动紧急制动、帮助驾驶者安全变换车道的盲点警示和代客泊车模式。利用代客泊车模式,车主可以限制Model S的驾驶性能,还能限制他人改变汽车的控制设置和获取个人信息。
