Tesla Model S: Auto-Raising Locations

Whenever you raise the suspension to High or Very High, the location is automatically saved. By saving the location, you do not need to manually raise the suspension every time you arrive at a frequently-used location where you have previously raised the suspension. When you return to the saved location, Model S raises the suspension and the instrument panel displays a message indicating that the suspension is being raised.

When saving locations, Model S also saves the Keep until XX mph setting (if specified).

NOTE: When returning to a saved location and driving faster than the High and Very High suspension settings allow, the suspension does not raise until Model S slows down.

NOTE: After leaving a saved location, the suspension automatically lowers. However, it may not lower until Model S meets the speed and distance threshold at which the suspension lowers.

NOTE: If Model S reaches a saved location and the existing suspension setting is already higher than the level that has been saved for that location, the ride height is not adjusted.

To remove an auto-raising location

If you do not want the suspension to automatically raise at a location, touch to deselect Always raise at this location in the popup that appears when you arrive at a saved location. Or, when using the Raise Suspension shortcut on the main Controls window, touch to deselect Location Saved.


Model S equipped with air suspension automatically self- levels, even when power is off. To prevent damage when jacking or lifting the vehicle, you must activate Jack Mode to disable self-leveling (press the brake pedal and touch Controls > Service > Jack Mode). For more details, see Jack Mode.


     Voice Commands

    Use voice commands to easily control settings and preferences without using the touchscreen. You can ask Model S to do just about anything, such as adjusting climate controls and media preferences.
