Tesla Motors is updating its Model S electric car with software version 6.2 to help ease drivers’ worries about running out of battery charge and provide additional safety. The Model S’s updated software will map out the best route to a driver’s destination based on the location of charging stations. It will also warn drivers if battery power is low before they drive beyond an area where they can charge.
For vehicles built after October 2014, the update will also add new safety features like, automatic emergency braking and blind spot detection.

CEO Elon Musk says Tesla is already working on its next update (Version 7), which will provide an automatic steering option for highway use also on vehicles built after October 2014. The Version 7 update should be coming in three months. The best part is that all of the over-the-air software updates are free for Tesla owners with Musk stating continual updates will come every 3-4 months so your Tesla is never outdated.
