Tesla Model S Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model S: Limitations

Smart Summon is unlikely to operate as intended in the following types of situations:

  • GPS data is unavailable due to poor cellular coverage.
  • The driving path is sloped. Smart Summon is designed to operate on flat roads only (up to 10% grade).
  • A raised concrete edge is detected. Depending on the height of the concrete edge, Smart Summon may not move Model S over it.
  • One or more of the ultrasonic sensors or cameras is damaged, dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice, or snow, or by a vehicle bra, excessive paint, or adhesive products such as wraps, stickers, rubber coating, etc.).
  • Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or extremely hot or cold temperatures) are interfering with sensor or camera operation.
  • The sensors are affected by other electrical equipment or devices that generate ultrasonic waves.

NOTE: Smart Summon is disabled if Model S is in Valet mode (see Valet Mode).

WARNING: The list above does not represent an exhaustive list of situations that may interfere with proper operation of Smart Summon. It is the driver's responsibility to remain in control of Model S at all times. Pay close attention whenever Smart Summon is actively moving Model S and stay prepared to take immediate action. Failure to do so can result in serious property damage, injury or death.
