Tesla has completed its OTA software update for 285,520 vehicles in China that will improve driving safety and will add an audible alarm when TACC is activated. The minor addition was rolled out and distributed to owners in just a few days, making Tesla stand out from all the automakers in existence today.

Safety has always been a priority for Tesla. In an effort to improve the reliability of their cruise-control software, the company has informed customers and regulators of a new software update for 285,520 vehicles in China that will improve driving safety. The crux of the matter is that Tesla decided to make some very minor changes to the car software. In order to warn the drivers if they accidentally activated Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (TACC), the company added a sound signal.

Despite the inappropriately inflated negativity around this issue by media, the solution and its implementation was the simplest. Tesla just added a sound signal when the feature is activated. Of course, it is worth noting that only Tesla could solve this issue so easily, with the help of wireless updates, unique among automakers. A few days after the announcement, the California-based company rolled out the 2021.4.18.5 software update for its China fleet. Now, Tesla car owners hear a single sound signal when TACC is activated. Ray4Tesla/Twitter shared the first demo of the feature.
