Tesla Stopping Mode, what is it?

Tesla Stopping Mode, what is it?

At the beginning of November, 2019, Tesla began distributing a software update to owners. In the new software version, Tesla has added a new “Stopping Mode”.

Let's see what it is.

Before explaining what the “Stopping Mode” is, let me tell you about the single-pedal mode, because this is a mode based on the single pedal mode.

The so-called single-pedal mode is that the driver can control the acceleration and deceleration of the car using the accelerator pedal, press the accelerator pedal to accelerate and raise the accelerator pedal to braking.

Three direct benefits of driving with one pedal.

First, simplify driving.

Driving with one pedal can significantly reduce the frequency of movement of the right leg left and right. Many Tesla owners didn't have a long process of adapting to this mode.

Secondly, make kinetic energy recovery management and increase energy efficiency.

This is also a unique advantage for electric vehicles: the recovery and braking of kinetic energy can effectively increase the range of electric vehicles and reduce energy losses.

Third, reduce brake disc wear.

Since most of the braking action is the passive recovery and replacement of energy, this can significantly reduce brake pad wear. Owners say they mainly use one pedal to control and rarely use the brake.

Currently, most single-pedal models can reduce vehicle speed to 5-19 mph by restoring kinetic energy. But to stop, you need to press the brake pedal.

As a result of the update, the "Stopping mode" appeared.

"Along with a previously-available CREEP and ROLL settings, a new setting called HOLD is available as a Stopping Mode selection. When HOLD is selected, your vehicle continues to use regenerative braking after decelerating to a low speed, and applies Vehicle Hold after coming to a complete stop. The HOLD setting maximizes range and reduces brake wear by continuing to provide regenerative breaking at speeds lower than approximately 5mph (8 km/h).

To change your Stopping Mode setting, tap Controls > Driving > Stopping Mode while in PARK"


With the initial driving habits, we could completely release the accelerator pedal about 40 meters from the car in front and rely on the kinetic energy recovery mode to slow down. But in the new mode, kinetic energy is restored more strongly, and you can completely release the accelerator pedal about 25 meters from the front of the car.



Analyzing all the Tesla models, it is clear that the automaker always wanted to bring something new to the old automobile industry. And Tesla fully proved to us that the point is not that the industry does not need changes, but that no one takes the initiative for change.

I'm a big fan of Tesla, as I worry about the future for my child and for future generations. Tesla's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy and I'm passionately striving for this goal. I’m tired of the daily deception from Tesla’s haters against the company, so I strive to spread true information and the latest news about Tesla.
