With its 15-year history, Tesla has made a major contribution to the development of the automotive industry.
And even preceded companies that are more than half a century old! Tesla has been able to promote this type of car among people in Turkey and the world.
And that by entering the field of electric cars.
It stands to reason that no company has ever succeeded in electric vehicles.
It was the only Tesla company that changed this fact.

Automotive technology advantage in Tesla products :
The Tesla Vehicle System is a set of auxiliary systems that assist the driver in controlling the vehicle.
This system can control driving in certain situations. And it is all done by controlling the throttle, brake and filter.
The system is operated using a cruise control lever.
When the system is active and you want to change lanes. You can go to the required lane by turning on the traffic light.
The Amazing Plus mode feature of Tesla cars :
You can change the driving mode of your car from Tesla to Amazing Plus.
In order to get the most out of the car.
Elon Musk, who loves movies, decided to imitate Spaceballs’ settings.
In fact, the spacecraft in the movie had four different speeds.
The speed of light, magic, exclamation, and dispersion.
As a result of this idea, the feature was included in the latest Tesla OS update.
To activate Amazing Plus, you have to touch its special option for five seconds.
Then the system asks, (Are you sure you want to remove the restrictions? This will speed up the performance of the drive, gearbox and batteries).
There are two funny options to choose from: (No, I want mom! And yes).
The advantage of supercharging in Tesla cars :
Supercharges are part of Tesla’s fast charging network.
One of the advantages of electric cars is the long battery life.
This allows users to charge their batteries very quickly within an hour.
Remote updates feature on Tesla cars :
The Model S was the first car from the American company that could download software updates over the Internet.
The company fixes many of the errors existing in this way and adds new capabilities to its products.
Vehicle system updates and Amazing Plus mode are also sent remotely.
And dozens of other features are also added to vehicles that qualify in the same way.
The advantage of the broadcast service in Tesla cars :
Because Tesla cars receive software updates via the Internet.
The company has included streaming music services in its products by default.
Slacker and TuneIn are among the online streaming services.
Which you can use to listen to your favorite music.
Slacker allows you to create a list of radio stations and change tracks with one click.
While TuneIn works similarly to Pandora, with the difference that it does not contain annoying ads!
Advantage of Tesla Cars Internet Browser :
You can browse cyberspace with the Tesla web browser.
However, for security reasons, you will not be able to view the video on the center display of the dashboard.
However, web pages load slowly. But Tesla is still working on its browser, and intends to fix its problems with various updates soon.
Advantage of adaptive suspension on Tesla cars :
Many luxury off-road vehicles use air suspension.
This system adjusts the vehicle’s smoothness as well as its height based on road conditions.
While on the highway, suspension comfort and softness is a priority.
The air suspension allows drivers to adjust the vehicle’s height.
For example on the highway, it tends to increase the car’s aerodynamics by reducing altitude.
And of course, the situation changes once you get to the local accelerators.
You will have to reset the suspension again.
Advantage of advanced parking sensors in Tesla cars :
Although parking sensors are decades old and not a new technology, Tesla has tried to improve it.
In fact, instead of the annoying beeps.
And instead of the fuzzy red and yellow lines, they accurately show the distance.
This makes parking in Tesla cars unobtrusive!
The Key in Tesla cars :
The Tesla key is designed like a car and is so funny!
By pressing different parts of this key, you can unlock and close the door.
Or, you can access the front and back boxes.
You can also take your car out of the parking lot without the need for driving
The mobile app feature on Tesla cars :
If you do not want to use the Tesla key, you can use the company’s own application.
With this program, you can turn on the car and turn on the lights.
This App also shows you how much the car costs.
Adjusting the ventilation system is another feature that you can access with the Tesla app.
What is the real price of Tesla cars in Turkey and the world?
Despite the lower advertising rates on the Tesla website.
However, the company’s electric vehicle prices are often misleading and higher than customers expect.
There is a lot of discussion about Tesla’s pricing structure.
But in reality, customers cannot purchase the Tesla Model 3 for $ 35,000.
Or they won’t pay $ 39,000 for a Tesla Model Y electric car.
This is also if the formula for saving gasoline for a period of 6 years is not taken into consideration.
