Confirmed by Cybertruck chief engineer that Cabin Overheat Protection IS coming “soon” :).

"I hear you and also Aaron, who asks about it daily - it's coming in an OTA update soon. Keep an eye on the release notes."

what is the most temp sensitive interior component? the LCD screens?

The screens used to delaminate Idk if this still the case and I don't want to find out. I would bet the neural network cpu or one of the other computers are moderately heat sensitive but I'm just guessing and don't really know.

And not a moment too soon! LFGooooooo!

The other day the 3 family Teslas were parked next to each other. M3 = 97F. MY = 96F. CT = 119F. Sunny day but only 77F or so. And this is with full tint including Crystalline on the windshield, and with the roof screen in place.

Weird, the 2018 M3 I drove had this feature?

😳😵💫 For $120k it should be standard.
Most of us only paid 79,990 plus the $20K Foundation Series early adopter fee which comes with FSD.

Cabin overheat protection is standard, Tesla decided to start delivering Cyberetrucks in December/January before the feature was fully developed. Cabin overheat protection has to be developed tailored to each vehicle for maximum ratio of effectiveness/power consumed.

I imagine they figured it was not a priority until the weather in N. America started to warm up. Does your Ford Lightning have it? How does it work? Do you just turn it on in the menu system and then it comes on when the temperature exceeds your setpoint?

Stand corrected…thought the Foundation was $99 with $20 fee, didn’t know there was the lesser option too. Thanks.

lol, wish the ⚡ had that feature, Ford has about 15% of the features Tesla offers. But those are only at a premium, owner must have a Lariat and above to get even close to what Tesla offers standard. But I can turn on the truck from the phone and AC will run. Take care.

Highly optimised = AC on and temp sensor does the rest?

HVAC already uses fan for maintaining ambient, then heat pump to cool down to 20% SOC. Not hard to do, and definitely doesn't have to be tailored to each CT sold, not even between CT/MY etc.

It's not like you can "trick" the CT to be cooler than it is right? ;)

By adjusting the airflow so the fan blows the hottest air out of the car, lower temps can be maintained using less energy. This takes data to develop. When a car is being actively heated by solar radiation, the air inside becomes stratified, with different layers of air at different temperatures. Maybe you were unaware that Cabin Overheat Protection can use different air vents, different fan speeds, and different timing strategies to achieve the goals. Tesla tries to optimize everything over time and from model to model.

I liked it better when you weren't posting frequently and raising silly objections whenever someone tried to explain to you how things work.

Right.

Makes no sense. But maybe that's why you missed me, because you didn't have a fact checker?

But nice to chat to you again. :)

Even if the air would "stratify" in the cabin, the net result us still the same to replace the air inside with the fan.

Using different vents would not make a meaningful difference in the cabin climate as a whole. Sure you can optimise which part of the cabin you want cooled first, but overall the heat energy load throughout the cabin that needs to be extracted by the HVAC is the same. Be that using heat pump or fan.

Stationery cabin cooling has been around for decades, here we used to have little solar fan units you jammed into an open window. Worked well.

It is weird to me that they didn't even get these basics in the vehicle before it was released. Just how unique would this be compared to the other 4 Tesla cars for goodness sakes? Does it use enough energy that they were worried about that impact (range, PR, etc)?

More likely in fact to be a public perception thing. But also I think there was hesitancy along the production path and they didn't complete everything. I'm not sure how big their software team is, but it really does sound like they were/are under the pump and had a priority list to complete to get ready for public realease. Not really the software teams fault as much as upper project management I think.

It also has excessive Sentry Mode consumption, probably due to suboptimal configuration of the DC-DC converters, that also consume power themselves, and have been producing other errors. The first problem I see is that the circuit board has two 48V converters and three 120/240V on the same PCB board. Having systems that are meant to be "redundant" on the same board seems like a poor choice for various reasons.
