sounded when you exceed the determined speed
limit.
You can also specify how the speed limit is determined:
Relative - You can set a speed limit offset (+ or -) if
you want to be alerted only when you exceed the
offset speed limit by a specified amount. For
example, you can increase the offset to +10 mph (10
km/h) if you only want to be warned when you
exceed the speed limit by 10 mph (10 km/h).
NOTE: The offset from speed limit also affects the
number shown in the gray speed icon on the
instrument panel.
Absolute - Manually specify any speed limit between
20 and 140 mph (30 and 240 km/h).
NOTE: Speed Assist is not always accurate. In some
situations, the location of a road can be miscalculated
and Speed Assist can display a speed for a directly
adjacent road that may have a different speed limit. For
example, Speed Assist can assume Model X is on a
controlled-access highway when it is actually on a
nearby surface street, and vice versa.
NOTE: Your chosen setting is retained until you manually
change it.

Cabin Camera
Your Model X may be equipped with a cabin camera

obstructions. Remove any buildup of dirt or dust by
occasionally wiping the camera lens with a clean cloth.
CAUTION: Do not use chemical-based or abrasive
cleaners. Doing so can damage the surface of the
camera lens.
The cabin camera can determine driver inattentiveness
and provide you with audible alerts, to remind you to
keep your eyes on the road when Autopilot is engaged.
By default, images and video from the camera do not
leave the vehicle itself and are not transmitted to
anyone, including Tesla, unless you enable data sharing.
If you enable data sharing and a safety critical event
occurs (such as a collision), Model X shares short cabin
camera video clips with Tesla to help us develop future
safety enhancements and continuously improve the
intelligence of features that rely on the cabin camera.
Data may also be shared if diagnostics are required on
cabin camera functionality. Cabin camera does not
perform facial recognition or any other method of
identity verification. To protect your privacy, cabin
camera data is not associated with your vehicle
identification number.
To adjust your data sharing preferences touch Controls >
Software > Data Sharing > Allow Cabin Camera
Analytics. You can change your data sharing settings at
any time.

Climate Controls
Overview of Climate Controls
Climate controls are available at the bottom of the touchscreen. By default, climate control is set to Auto, which
maintains optimum comfort in all but the most severe weather conditions. When you adjust the cabin temperature
while in the Auto setting, the system automatically adjusts the heating, air conditioning, air distribution, and fan
speed to maintain the cabin at your selected temperature.
Touch the displayed temperature at the bottom of the touchscreen to access the main climate controls screen,
where you can adjust your climate preferences. You can revert back to Auto at any time by touching Auto. Touch the
power button on the main climate controls screen to toggle on or off. For quick access to common controls, touch <
or > to display the climate popup.
NOTE: The climate control system is powered by the high voltage Battery. Therefore, prolonged use decreases
driving range.
WARNING: To avoid burns resulting from prolonged use, individuals who have peripheral neuropathy, or whose
capacity to feel pain is limited because of diabetes, age, neurological injury, or some other condition, should
exercise caution when using the climate control system and seat heaters.
Adjusting Climate Control Settings
NOTE: Easily adjust your climate preferences, such as turning on the seat heater or changing the cabin temperature,
hands-free by using voice commands (see Voice Commands on page 165).
NOTE: For one-touch access to seat heaters and defrosters, you can add these controls to My Apps. See
Customizing My Apps on page 8.
1. Touch to turn the climate control system on or off.
2. Touch to adjust the climate settings for the front cabin.
3. Choose where air flows into the front cabin (windshield, face-level, or foot-level vents). You can choose one or
more vents.
4. Touch to adjust the climate settings for the rear cabin. If Auto is enabled and a passenger is detected, the set
temperature is maintained for the rear cabin (see Adjusting the Front and Rear Vents on page 145).

11. When Model X is in Park, touch Schedule to set a recurring daily time when you want Model X to be ready to
drive by preconditioning the Battery and cabin climate and/or charging during off-peak hours (see Scheduled
Charging and Scheduled Departure on page 185).
12. If your Model X is equipped with the medical-grade HEPA (High E…ciency Particulate Air) filter, this filter ensures
the best quality air inside the cabin whenever the climate control system is on and outside air is entering the
cabin (recirculate is off). The HEPA filter is extremely effective at removing particles, including pollution,
allergens, bacteria, pollen, mold spores, and viruses. Both the HEPA filter and the secondary filtration system also
contain activated carbon to remove a broad spectrum of odors and gases. When you engage Bioweapon Defense
Mode, the positive pressure inside the cabin minimizes the amount of outside air that can enter the vehicle.
NOTE: Some gases, such as carbon monoxide, are not effectively removed by activated carbon.
13. Touch to control the flow of air inside the cabin. Air can be drawn into Model X from outside or air can be
recirculated inside the cabin.
14. Use the slider to adjust the fan speed.
NOTE: Adjusting the fan speed may change the selected setting for how air is drawn into Model X in order to
increase or reduce air flow.
15. Touch to turn the air conditioning system on or off. Turning it off reduces cooling, but saves energy.
NOTE: Because Model X runs much quieter than a gasoline-powered vehicle, you may notice the sound of the air
conditioning compressor as it is operating. To minimize noise, reduce the fan speed.
16. Touch to warm up the rear windshield. After 15 minutes, the rear window defroster automatically turns off. The
exterior side mirrors are also heated whenever the rear window defroster is operating.
17. The windshield defroster distributes air flow to the windshield. Touch once to defog the windshield (the icon turns
blue) (the icon turns yellow). Touch a second time to defrost the windshield (the icon turns red and the heating
and fan operate at maximum levels). Touch a third time to turn off and restore the air distribution, heating, and
fan to their previous settings. In cold ambient temperatures, the exterior side mirrors are also heated whenever
the windshield defroster is operating. See Cold Weather Best Practices on page 96 for more information on
preparing for cold weather.

only from a connected phone). In situations when
your vehicle is not connected to a phone, touch
Connect Phone on the calendar list.
• Mobile access is turned on (Controls > Safety > Allow

Auto-Raising Locations
Whenever you raise the suspension to High or Very

location, you do not need to manually raise the
suspension every time you arrive at a frequently-used
location where you have previously raised the
suspension. When you return to the saved location,
Model X raises the suspension and the instrument panel
displays a message indicating that the suspension is
being raised.
When saving locations, Model X also saves the Keep

NOTE: When returning to a saved location and driving
faster than the High and Very High suspension settings
allow, the suspension does not raise until Model X slows
down.
NOTE: After leaving a saved location, the suspension
automatically lowers. However, it may not lower until
Model X meets the speed and distance threshold at
which the suspension lowers.
NOTE: If Model X reaches a saved location and the
existing suspension setting is already higher than the
level that has been saved for that location, the ride
height is not adjusted.

Model X to recognize voice commands. To support these
ongoing quality improvements, Tesla captures short
voice recordings anonymously. To protect your privacy,
these short recordings are not associated with your
personal information or with your vehicle's identification
number. Tesla assures that it is not possible to search
any system for a recording associated with a specific
customer or vehicle.
