Tesla owner Kevin Schreiber has posted a video highlighting his discovery of a new rainbow charge port easter egg. By clicking the charge handle button 10 times in quick succession while the vehicle (Model S or Model X) is locked and charging, the illuminated ring which typically glows blue while on standby and green when charging will begin to do a ‘rainbow dance’.
This new rainbow charge port easter egg follows a recent discovery of another rainbow-based hidden secret that converts Autopilot to travel on rainbow road, and with its own cowbell sounds.
Activate autopilot 4X in quick succession for psychedelic cowbell road. And, yes, we are adding more cowbell soon.

Musk is known to have a bit of fun when it comes to new firmware updates. The team will on occasion release new easter eggs into the Model S and Model X through firmware updates. We’ve seen the ability to convert a Tesla into the James Bond Lotus submarine, we’ve also answered the meaning of life, and let’s not forget going Spaceballs style with Ludicrous. But the one easter egg that Model X owners are undoubtedly waiting for is the Merry X-Mas Model X light show spectacular hopefully to arrive later this year.
In the meantime, watch the Rainbow Charge Port easter egg in action below:
