Touchscreen Overview
In addition to the instrument panel, Model X is equipped with a front and rear touchscreen.
touchscreen is referred to as the "rear touchscreen".
WARNING: Always pay attention to road and tra…c conditions when driving. To minimize driver distraction and
ensure the safety of vehicle occupants as well as other road users, avoid using the touchscreen to adjust
settings while the vehicle is in motion.
Use the touchscreen to control many features that, in traditional cars, are controlled using physical buttons (for
example, adjusting the cabin heating and air conditioning, headlights, etc.). You also use the touchscreen to control
media, navigate, use entertainment features, and customize Model X to suit your preferences. For hands-free access
to common touchscreen controls, use voice commands (see Voice Commands on page 165).
If the touchscreen is unresponsive or demonstrates unusual behavior, you can restart it (see Restarting the
Touchscreen on page 8).
NOTE: Illustrations are provided to improve conceptual understanding only. Depending on vehicle options, software
version, market region and regional and language settings, the details displayed on the screen will differ.
1. Navigation: Change the orientation of the map, find or navigate to a destination, and change navigation settings
(see Maps and Navigation on page 148).
2. Drive mode strip: Use to shift into Park, Reverse, Neutral, or Drive. The drive mode strip always displays on the
touchscreen when you touch Controls (see Shifting on page 63).
3. Controls: Control various features and adjust settings to customize your Model X (see Controls on page 136).
4. Climate controls (driver): Use the left and right arrows to decrease/increase cabin temperature. Touch Split on
the popup to display separate controls for the driver and passenger. Touch the temperature icon to customize

still use it. To unlock the vehicle, scan the key fob on the
card reader located on the driver's side door pillar (like
the key card).
Instructions for changing the battery are provided in
Replacing the Key Fob Battery on page 13.
NOTE: You can use the same key fob with multiple
Model X vehicles provided you authenticate it (see
Managing Keys on page 14). However, key fob works
with only one Model X at a time. Therefore, to use a key

CAUTION: Protect the key from impact, high
temperatures, and damage from liquids. Avoid
contact with solvents, waxes, and abrasive
cleaners.
Passive Locking and Unlocking
Locking and unlocking Model X with your key fob is
conveniently hands-free. Although you must be carrying
a paired key fob, there is no need to use it. Model X has
sensors around the vehicle that can recognize the
presence of a key fob within a range of approximately
six feet (two meters). Therefore, you can keep your key

while within vehicle range when the vehicle is not in use
(for example, you are standing outside your vehicle). In
this situation, you must shake or press a button on the
key fob to re-enable passive locking and unlocking.

before opening a falcon wing door. Snow can get
inside Model X and ice can prevent the door from
opening. In situations where water or snow has
accumulated on the glass on top of the falcon
wing door, Tesla recommends using the
touchscreen or switch on the door pillar (instead
of the external door handle or key fob) to slowly
open the falcon wing door for the first few inches
(cm). Opening the falcon wing door slowly for the
first few inches (cm) mitigates the scenario of
water, snow, etc. from entering the vehicle.
To close a falcon wing door, press the button located on
the inside of the door. You can also use the key fob (see

come into contact with a person or object. Failure
to do so can cause serious damage or injury.
Obstacle Detection
A falcon wing door stops moving when one of its many
sensors detects an obstacle, or when the door senses
resistance because it has made contact with an object.
The touchscreen displays a warning. In these cases,
provided it is appropriate to continue opening or closing
the falcon wing door, you can override obstacle
detection by pressing and holding the switch located on
the door pillar, or touching and holding the associated
door icon on the touchscreen.
When Model X detects a low ceiling (for example, in a
garage), it opens the falcon wing doors (and trunk) to a
lower height, even if no obstacle is detected. You can
override this height and open the doors higher by
touching the associated door icon on the touchscreen

(Bench)
Second row bench seats can accommodate up to three
passengers. Use the mechanical adjustment lever
located at the side of each outboard seating position to
adjust the seat backs. A bench seat is split 60/40 so the
adjustment lever on the left side moves the seat backs
for both the left and center seats, whereas the lever on
the right side moves the rightmost seat back only. While
pulling and holding the lever, move the seat back to the
desired position, and then release the lever. When

NOTE: Only bench seats in seven-seat vehicles can be
moved forward and rearward. The bench seats in five-

—therefore, the lever on the left side moves the seat for
the left and center seats, whereas the lever on the right
side moves only the rightmost seat. Pull and hold the
lever while moving the seat forward or rearward. Release
the lever when the seat is at the desired location. Ensure
the lever is locked in place before driving.
WARNING: Riding in a moving vehicle with the
seat back reclined can result in serious injuries in a
collision, as you could slide under the lap belt or
be propelled into the seat belt. Ensure the backs of
occupied seats are reclined no more than 30
degrees when the vehicle is moving.
Folding Second Row Seats (Bench)
The second row seat backs on bench seats can be
folded fully forward so they lay flat and maximize cargo
space. Pull up the mechanical lever located on the side
of each outboard seat (the same lever you use to recline
the seats, as described previously), then push the seat
back fully forward. The bench seats have a 60/40 split—
