Listen to thousands of Audible Originals, audiobooks, and podcasts. Pick up where you left off and listen seamlessly between your device and Tesla.

Beach Buggy Racing 2
New Feature

for Model CT

Drive your own kart racer in an action-packed race to the finish. Careen through Egyptian pyramids, dragon-infested castles, pirate shipwrecks, and experimental alien bio-labs. Blast your opponents with an arsenal of fun and wacky Powerups.

When you play games, Cybertruck’s steer-by-wire system lets you turn the steering wheel without moving the tires.

To play, go to your vehicle settings > Entertainment > Arcade > Beach Buggy Racing 2.


Locking Differentials
New Feature

for Model CT

You can now engage the locking differentials. On uneven or slippery terrain, if a wheel has limited or no traction, Cybertruck will direct torque to the opposite wheel. This helps the vehicle continue moving in low-traction environments.

For off-roading, choose from the locking differential options on the vehicle status area, or in the Off-Road app.

Engaging locking differentials while driving on roads is helpful if you temporarily need extra grip on loose or uneven terrain, such as getting un-stuck from a snow bank. Navigate to Dynamics > Engage Rear Locking Differential.

Use with caution as maneuverability and traction are reduced when turning. Don’t use on high-traction surfaces such as asphalt. Doing so will result in damage to the drivetrain. Refer to the Owner’s Manual before using this feature.


Trail Assist
New Feature

for Model CT

Trail Assist maintains a set cruising speed with minimal slip on rough or steep terrain so you can focus on steering. Adjust the set speed by swiping on the right scroll wheel. Unlike cruise control, when you brake, Trail Assist stays active and resumes the set speed when you release the pedal.

To enable, go to Controls > Dynamics > Off-Road Mode > Trail Assist. This feature won’t steer, navigate, avoid obstacles, stop, or otherwise operate the vehicle on its own. Continue to pay attention and be ready to take immediate action. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for more information.


Slippery Surface
New Feature

for Model CT

Slippery Surface optimizes Traction Control for driving on snowy, icy, wet, or slick roads to distribute traction evenly across all tires. Even when this setting is off, Cybertruck continuously detects characteristics of the current driving surface and automatically adapts Traction Control.

In your vehicle settings, go to Dynamics > Slippery Surface.


Ride and Handling with a Load
New Feature

for Model CT

Adaptive suspension now estimates payload more accurately and automatically adjusts damping to deliver a more comfortable ride and more consistent, confident handling. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for load limits and requirements.


CyberTent Mode
New Feature

for Model CT

CyberTent Mode levels the suspension, so you can now sleep comfortably on a flat surface. It keeps the tonneau cover open to accommodate your tent. You won’t need a lantern with the lighting controls in the Tesla app, and Outlets stay on if enabled. Go to Outlets & Mods in your vehicle settings, or Controls in the Tesla app. The CyberTent is only available in the Tesla Shop (shop.tesla.com).


Off-Road Mode
New Feature

for Model CT

– Overland Mode now provides more consistent handling and better overall traction while driving on rock, gravel, deep snow, or sand.

– Baja Mode now improves vehicle balance and handles more freely when Stability Assist is set to Minimal.


Cabin Overheat Protection
New Feature

for Model CT

For hot days or parking in direct sun, Cabin Overheat Protection helps maintain the temperature you set for up to 12 hours after you park. It will turn off at 20% battery to conserve range.

In your vehicle settings, go to Safety > Cabin Overheat Protection. Never leave children or pets unattended.


Customize Scroll Wheel Functions
New Feature

for Model CT

Do more with the left scroll button on the steering wheel. You can perform actions like raise or lower ride height, open the glovebox, or save Dashcam footage, and adjust settings like brightness and drive mode.

Press and hold the left scroll button to open the menu and choose a function. Next time, the button will perform the most recent function you chose.

To choose a function any time you use this feature, go to vehicle settings > Display > Scroll Wheel Function, and choose Ask Each Time.


Cybertruck Colorizer
New Feature

for Model CT

Customize how your Cybertruck appears on the touchscreen and Tesla app.

In your vehicle settings, go to ToyBox > Colorizer.


Improved Turning Circle
New Feature

for Model CT

Your Cybertruck’s turning circle is improved by 1.6 feet, making parking and low-speed maneuvers easier. This is achieved by an increase in the turning angle of the front and rear wheels.


Front Passenger Air Vent
New Feature

for Model CT

You can now open or close the front passenger air vent separately, with the rest of your vehicle Climate still on.

Tap the temperature to open Climate controls, touch the front passenger air wave on the touchscreen, and follow the instructions.


New Lock Sounds
New Feature

for Model CT

You’ll hear new signature sounds from your Cybertruck when you lock and unlock.

You can enable or disable the sounds in your vehicle settings at Locks > Lock Confirmation Sound.


Zoom
New Feature

for Model CT
