Tesla’s cure for anxiety

TESLA says the latest software for its Model S saloon “eliminates range anxiety” for good. Far from being a huge leap in battery technology, the solution from the California-based company is its new ‘Trip Planner’ app. The app will direct the driver to the nearest Telsa rapid charging points (dubbed Superchargers) within current range if your final destination is beyond the battery’s remaining capability. More importantly, the new software also provides the Model S with automatic emergency braking and blind-spot warning safety systems.
