The latest Tweet from Elon Musk shows that Tesla plans on unlocking a cool
new feature for existing owners in an upcoming software release.

This morning, Tesla ... CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that all Tesla
Model S and Model X owners are about to get a free upgrade - another one,
that is.

When that update comes out, it'll just be the latest in a string of big
over-the-air software updates that Tesla has delivered to owners in recent
months.

And as consumers become increasingly likely to purchase electric vehicles in
the years ahead, Tesla's policy of providing free feature-adding software
updates to its existing fleet gives the company a major edge over other
manufacturers.

Feature improvement has been a core principle of Tesla's cars for a while
now - the firm sold its Autopilot system largely on the promise that, as
Tesla's self-driving software continued to improve, cars would be able to
leverage their existing hardware for full self-driving. But Tesla's feature
enhancements go well beyond Autopilot.

In recent weeks, Tesla pushed a completely re-engineered navigation engine
(currently in public beta) to owners, promising better routing and more
accurate response to real-time traffic conditions.

Other software updates have provided a "camper mode" that allows keeping the
climate control active for prolonged periods with the vehicle off; automatic
windshield wipers for the Model 3; cabin overheat protection; additional car
controls from Tesla's phone app, and more.

Some investors have called Tesla's cars bigger, more expensive iPhones - and
in a way, they're totally right. Just like new iOS releases from Action
Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio holding Apple Inc. (AAPL - Get
Report) unlock new functionality, Tesla's new code makes your car do more.

The difference is that a four-year-old Model S doesn't have any of the
battery degradation or sluggishness of a four-year-old iPhone.

Not a lot is free in the car world. Conventional automakers are notorious
for charging big markups for features that cost them next to nothing. $800
navigation update DVDs come to mind.

Meanwhile, Tesla's steady stream of feature improvements and updates on
existing vehicles is a huge value-add for consumers thinking about making
the move to an electric vehicle and ensures that Tesla's electric car market
share remains well defended in 2018.

Tesla to accelerate its market entry in Iceland, says Elon Musk
May 5, 2018  Iceland is perfect for massive adoption of electric vehicles.
The island's electricity generation is already almost 100% renewable, which
makes EVs super clean, and being a remote island, petrol is expensive.
Albeit being sparsely populated with only ~350,000 people, there's a
significant concentration of population around ...
