Make Your Lock Noise a “Random Fart” Tesla Says With New Cybertruck Update

Cybertruck update gets your goat (noises)

  • Tesla Cybertruck update includes performance and sound updates

  • Software changes could speed charging, improve ride

Tesla is already working on updates for the Cybertruck. The first round of upgrades is now out, and it is meant to improve charging and even ride and handling. At least according to the release notes.

According to the automaker, the Tesla Cybertruck will “get a more consistent response on different road surfaces and greater comfort on rough winding pavement in Sport Mode or when Custom Ride & Handling is set to Focused. Also expect reduced pitch and body roll in Off-Road Mode.” The truck uses active air suspension on both axles, which allows for the ride changes Tesla announced. It also has load leveling when hauling cargo.

When you’re preparing for charging, the vehicle knows the power of the station you’re headed to. “Your vehicle now adjusts to the power level of each DC charging station. So battery preconditioning when you’re navigating to a charger, and then charging, can be more efficient.” Battery temperature is one of the keys to charge speed. Finding the perfect temperature for the anticipated charge rate could help speed up the process.

There are other small changes, including a reminder to plug in when you get home with less than half charge. You can add a new locking sound – Tesla suggests a “random fart”, there are new games and apps, and the vehicle can now filter charge speeds.

Software to control the locking differential has still not been implemented. That missing feature is likely one of the causes for the off-road performance troubles that production Cybertruck models have been experiencing.
