Elon Musk is telling the media what he meant when he tweeted earlier this week about ending "range anxiety."
There are two key software updates.
The first is a "range assurance" application, which according to Musk will make it impossible to run out of range with the Model S sedan unless "you do so intentionally." The app communicates with Tesla's Supercharger network and warns you if you're in danger of running out of range, then finds the closest Supercharger.
The second is a trip planner, which will integrate the Supercharger network with the network of Model S cars on the road. The feature will optimize long-distance trips for drivers.
Musk also discussed new features coming online that will enable autonomous driving aspects of the Model S to evolve. Autosteering will arrive soon, and in the future you'll be able to "summon" your Model S to your location, as well as send your Model S back to its garage to put itself to sleep.
Stay tuned, we'll update this post as we learn more during the Q&A..
