What is Camping Mode in a Tesla?
No matter what your mode of transportation, camping has been an age-old way of life for outdoor adventurers. From classic tent days to van camping and beyond, there are many ways to explore the great outdoors and the planet, in an eco-friendly manner. With the introduction of Tesla electric vehicles, a new frontier of camping has been opened up, and it’s better than ever. Camping mode in a Tesla is the ideal way to explore the world while taking care of the planet.
As an experienced camper and father of three, I understand the importance of responsible exploration of the great outdoors. With Tesla’s Camping Mode you can maximize your vehicle’s battery life and the environment. Camping mode allows you to set a minimum amount of charge for your vehicle while you sleep, eliminating the need to plug in or idle the car nightly for recharging. With this mode, you can let your vehicle retain a certain amount of charge and be ready to explore in the morning!
How Does Camping Mode Work in a Tesla?
To access camping mode, you’ll need to open the Tesla mobile app. From there, you can set the minimum charge and maximum charge for your Tesla vehicle. The minimum amount of charge will be used to provide enough energy to the car for an overnight recharge and the maximum is a “full charge” reserve for emergencies. By setting the desired amounts, the Tesla car is able to maintain the charge level within those bounds.
The app also allows you to set timers for the vehicle’s climate controls, so you can stay comfortable wherever your camping adventure takes you. You can also set timers for lights and other features that will stay on only when you want them.
Once in camping mode, the Tesla car will monitor the battery levels and adjust accordingly. For example, when the car detects that the battery has dropped below the minimum charge level, it will automatically begin recharging the battery. This is a great way to not only conserve energy but also save money. In addition, if you are camping during winter, the Tesla car will also monitor the temperature and automatically adjust the climate control settings if needed.
When camping mode is enabled, your Tesla car will also save your GPS coordinates, so you can always find your way back to your campsite. If you ever get lost, you can easily enable your car’s navigation system and let it guide you back. While out and about, you can even turn on the Tesla car’s air suspension system and raise the car higher so that it can raise the clearance for traversing rough terrain.
AI Assist for Camping Mode
When camping mode is enabled, you can take advantage of Tesla’s AI assistant feature. You can set different goals and it will provide you with tips, such as suggestions on where to camp next or which route is the most efficient to take. As you travel, the AI assistant will even suggest stops along the way, for refueling and other services. This feature is incredibly helpful for planning efficient and responsible routes.
