One feature that will no doubt come in handy for many Model S owners is the addition of hill start assist, although the energy saving sleep mode will be of a great benefit because it helps to conserve more of that precious battery life. You can even start the car by using an iPhone, which you can see in the second video below.

The list of new features in the Tesla Model S firmware 6 is extensive and so we ask that you head over to the Tesla Motors press page where you will find the entire release notes, or watch the two videos below. One thing we can tell you, this update will make for a far better driver experience.
