Elon Musk recently paid a visit to Norway where he held an hour and a half long Q&A session in an auditorium full of Tesla Model S owners and fans.

Among the topics of discussion was Firmware 6.0, which introduces the ability for Model S owners to gain full control of the air suspension settings.

Tesla Model S Firmware 6.0 Suspension ControlAccording to Musk, “Version 6.0” is nearly complete and just weeks away from being released to the market. The firmware update will re-introduce the ability for the Model S to automatically lower at a given speed – a hotly debated topic after Firmware 5.8 saw the removal of the feature set which many believed it to be a proactive stance by the auto manufacturer to address the ongoing fire investigations by the NHTSA.

Firmware 6.0 will provide Model S owners the ability to manually set the transition height of the air suspension across a much wider range of speeds. Lowering and raising of the vehicle will be 100% configurable and no longer a guessing game on if and when the automatic suspension will engage.

Aside from the suspension controls, the Tesla Model S Firmware 6.0 will also introduce real-time traffic information thereby making navigation and driving time calculations much more precise. Stay tuned as we provide a full breakdown of the Tesla Model S Firwmare 6.0 features.
