Front and Rear Seats Seating and Safety Restraints Front and Rear Seats Correct Driving Position Adjusting the Front Seats The seat, head support, seat belt and airbags work together to maximize your safety. Using these correctly ensures greater protection. Position the seat so you can wear the seat belt correctly, while being as far away from the front airbag as possible: 1. Sit upright with both feet on the floor and the seat back reclined no more than 30 degrees. 2. Make sure you can easily reach the pedals and that your arms are slightly bent when holding the steering wheel. Your chest should be at least 10 inches (25 cm) from the center of the airbag cover. 3. Place the shoulder section of the seat belt mid-way between your neck and your shoulder. Fit the lap section of the belt tightly across your hips, not across your stomach. Model X seats include integrated head supports that cannot be adjusted or removed. 1. Move seat forward/backward and adjust the seat‡s height and tilt angle up/down. 2. Adjust backrest. 3. Adjust lumbar support. Warning: Before adjusting a front seat, check that the area around the seat is free of obstacles (people and objects). Warning: Do not adjust seats while driving. Doing so increases the risk of a collision. Warning: Riding in a moving vehicle with the seat back reclined can result in serious injuries in a collision, as you could slide under the lap belt or be propelled into the seat belt. Ensure your seat back is reclined no more than 30 degrees when the vehicle is moving. 24 Model X Owner's Manual

Child Safety Seats Child Safety Seats Guidelines for Seating Children Your Model X seat belts are designed for adults and larger children. You must restrain infants and small children in the second and rear row seats only, and you must use a suitable child safety seat appropriate for the child‡s age, weight, and size. Never use child safety seats in the front row passenger seat. Warning: Never seat a child on a seat with an ACTIVE AIRBAG in front of it. DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to the child can occur. Warning: Always ensure that all Model X seats are locked in position before traveling. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury. Pay attention to all warnings displayed on the touchscreen or instrument panel. Warning: Do not use Easy Entry (as described in Driver Profiles on page 46) to automatically move the driver's seat to the full rearward position if a child safety seat is installed on a rear seat behind the driver's seat. With reduced clearance, the movement of the seat may impact a child's legs, cause injury, or dislodge the seat. Warning: For vehicles with third row seats, when a child is seated in a second row monopost seat, the setting for the button that moves a second row outboard seat forward for easy access into the third row should be OFF (touch Controls > Seats > Easy Entry). This ensures that you need to manually hold the button to move the seat, preventing a child seated in the second row from being pushed against the corresponding front seat. See Accessing Third Row Seats (if equipped) - Monopost Seating on page 26. Refer to the following label fitted to the sun visors. Note: The image(s) shown below are representative only and may not be identical to the labels in your vehicle. Model X has an occupancy sensor in the front passenger seat that controls the status of the passenger front airbag (see Airbags on page 41). When driving with a child seat on the front passenger seat, always double- check the status of the passenger front airbag to confirm that it is OFF. To protect an adult subsequently occupying the front passenger seat, check to verify that the passenger front airbag is ON. 32 Model X Owner's Manual

Airbags Airbags Location of Airbags Airbags are located in the approximate areas shown below. Airbag warning information is printed on the sun visors. Model X is equipped with an airbag and lap/shoulder belt at both front seating positions. The airbag is a supplemental restraint at those seating positions. All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts whether or not an airbag is also provided at their seating position to minimize the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash. 1.

A weight detected near the threshold can cause the airbag status to occasionally turn on and off depending on seating position and physique. Note: It takes approximately six seconds after you power on Model X for the occupancy sensor to report accurate status of the front passenger airbag.

Airbags Warning: Children should not be seated on the front passenger seat unless permitted by regulations in your market region. Follow all regulations in your region for the appropriate way to seat a child based on the child's weight, size, and age. The safest place to seat infants and young children is in the rear seating positions. Seating an infant or child in a rear-facing child restraint system on a seat equipped with an operational airbag can cause serious injury or death. Warning: To ensure correct inflation of the side airbags, maintain an unobstructed gap between an occupant‡s torso and the side of Model X. Warning: Passengers shouldn't lean their heads against doors. Doing so can cause injury if a curtain airbag inflates. Warning: Do not allow passengers to obstruct the operation of an airbag by placing feet, knees or any other part of the body on or near an airbag. Warning: Do not attach or place objects on or near the front airbags, the side of the front seats, the headliner at the side of the vehicle, or any other airbag cover that could interfere with inflation of an airbag. Objects can cause serious injury if the vehicle is in a collision severe enough to cause the airbag to inflate. Warning: Following inflation, some airbag components are hot. Do not touch until they have cooled. Seating and Safety Restraints 45

Brakes wiping or hydraulic fade compensation to act as a substitute for adequate braking. Regenerative Braking Whenever Model X is moving and your foot is off the accelerator, regenerative braking slows down Model X and feeds any surplus energy back to the Battery. By anticipating your stops and reducing or removing pressure from the accelerator pedal to slow down, you can take advantage of regenerative braking to increase driving range. Of course, this is no substitute for regular braking when needed for safety. Note: If regenerative braking is aggressively slowing Model X (such as when your foot is completely off the accelerator pedal at highway speeds), the brake lights turn on to alert others that you are slowing down.

Brakes Use the touchscreen to manually release the parking brake (which also shifts Model X into Neutral): 1. Touch Controls > Safety & Security. 2. Press the brake pedal, then touch Parking Brake. If Model X was previously in Park, it shifts into Neutral. When you use the touchscreen to manually apply the parking brake, the red parking brake indicator lights up on the instrument panel . If the parking brake experiences an electrical issue, the amber parking brake indicator lights up and a fault message displays at the top of the instrument panel. Caution: In the unlikely event that Model X loses electrical power, you cannot access the touchscreen and are therefore unable to release the parking brake. Contact Tesla. Brake Wear Model X brake pads are equipped with wear indicators. A wear indicator is a thin metal strip attached to the brake pad that squeals as it rubs against the rotor when the pad wears down. This squealing sound indicates that the brake pads have reached the end of their service life and require replacement. To replace the brake pads, contact Tesla Service. Brakes must be periodically inspected visually by removing the tire and wheel. For detailed specifications and service limits for rotors and brake pads, see Subsystems on page 203. Additionally, Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating the brake calipers every year or 12,500 miles (20,000 km) if in an area where roads are salted during winter months. Warning: Neglecting to replace worn brake pads damages the braking system and can result in a braking hazard. 72 Model X Owner's Manual

By default, the traction control system is on. Under normal conditions, it should remain on to ensure maximum safety. This yellow indicator flashes on the instrument panel whenever the traction control system is actively controlling brake pressure and motor power to minimize wheel spin. If the indicator stays on, a fault is detected with the traction control system. Contact Tesla Service. Warning: If the above indicator remains illuminated in situations in which you have not enabled Slip Start (described next), the traction control system may not be operating correctly. Contact Tesla Service immediately. Warning: Traction control cannot prevent collisions caused by driving dangerously or turning too sharply at high speeds. Allowing Wheel Slip To allow the wheels to spin at a limited speed, you can enable Slip Start. Slip Start can be enabled only when Model X is moving 30 mph (48 km/h) or slower. Slip Start automatically disables when the speed exceeds 50 mph (80 km/h). Under normal conditions, Slip Start should not be enabled. Enable it only in circumstances where you deliberately want the wheels to spin, such as: • Starting on a loose surface, such as gravel or snow. • Driving in deep snow, sand or mud. • Rocking out of a hole or deep rut. To allow the wheels to spin, touch Controls > Driving > Traction Control > Slip Start. The instrument panel displays an alert message when Slip Start is enabled. Driving 73

Traffic-Aware Cruise Control • The Traffic-Aware Cruise Control system is failing or requires service. When Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is unavailable or cancels, Model X no longer drives consistently at a set speed and no longer maintains a specified distance from the vehicle ahead.

Autosteer Autosteer Note: Autosteer is a BETA feature. Autosteer builds upon Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (see Traffic-Aware Cruise Control on page 99), intelligently keeping Model X in its driving lane when cruising at a set speed. Autosteer also allows you to use the turn signals to move Model X into an adjacent lane (see Auto Lane Change on page 108). Using the vehicle's camera(s), the radar sensor, and the ultrasonic sensors, Autosteer detects lane markings and the presence of vehicles and objects to steer Model X.

Autopark To Cancel Parking Autopark cancels the parking sequence when you manually move the steering wheel, change gears, or touch Cancel on the touchscreen. Autopark also cancels parking when: • The parking sequence exceeds seven moves. • Model X detects that the driver is exiting the vehicle. • A door is opened. • You press the accelerator pedal. • You press the brake pedal while Autopark is paused. • An Automatic Emergency Braking event occurs (see Collision Avoidance Assist on page 124). Limitations Autopark is particularly unlikely to operate as intended in these situations: • The road is sloped. Autopark is designed to operate on flat roads only. • Visibility is poor (due to heavy rain, snow, fog, etc.). • The curb is constructed of material other than stone, or the curb cannot be detected. • The target parking space is directly adjacent to a wall or pillar (for example, the last parking space of a row in an underground parking structure). • One or more of the ultrasonic sensors is damaged, dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice, or snow). • Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or extremely hot or cold temperatures) are interfering with sensor operation. • The sensors are affected by other electrical equipment or devices that generate ultrasonic waves. Warning: Many unforeseen circumstances can impair Autopark's ability to park Model X. Keep this in mind and remember that as a result, Autopark may not steer Model X appropriately. Pay attention when parking Model X and stay prepared to immediately take control. 114 Model X Owner's Manual

Always drive at a safe instrument panel and you can choose if and speed based on traffic and road how you are warned when you exceed the conditions. speed limit. Also, instead of using the detected speed limit, you can base warnings Controlling Speed Assist on an arbitrary speed limit that you enter manually. To adjust the Speed Limit Warning setting, touch Controls > Autopilot > Speed Limit Warning, then choose one of these options: • Off - Speed limit warnings do not display and chimes are not sounded. • Display - Speed limit signs display on the instrument panel and the sign increases in size when you exceed the determined limit. • Chime - In addition to the visual display, a chime is sounded whenever you exceed the determined speed limit. You can also specify how the speed limit is determined: • Relative - You can set a speed limit offset (+ or -) if you want to be alerted only when you exceed the offset speed limit by a specified amount. For example, you can increase the offset to +10 mph (10 km/h) if you only want to be warned when you exceed the speed limit by 10 mph (10 km/h).

Climate Controls Warning: To avoid burns resulting from prolonged use, individuals who have peripheral neuropathy, or whose capacity to feel pain is limited because of diabetes, age, neurological injury, or some other condition, should exercise caution when using the climate control system and seat heaters. Note: The climate control system is powered by the high voltage battery. Therefore, prolonged use decreases driving range. Using the Touchscreen 141

Climate Controls Adjusting Climate Control Settings To adjust individual settings to suit your preferences, touch the fan icon at the bottom of the touchscreen to access individual climate control settings. If Model X is equipped with six or seven seats, a rear climate controls bar also appears immediately below the above window. See Rear Cabin Climate Controls (6 and 7 seat vehicles only) on page 143. In addition to the settings shown, if Model X is in Park, the Keep Climate On and Dog Mode setting displays when you touch the fan icon when the vehicle is in Park (see Keep Climate On and Dog Mode on page 144). 1. Adjust the speed of the fan. Note: Adjusting the fan speed may change your setting for how air is drawn into Model X in order to decrease or increase airflow. For example, if you set the fan speed at the highest setting when the air circulation is set to draw in outside air, the setting may switch to recirculating the air to achieve the high air flow. 2. Touch to turn off the climate control system and close the climate controls popup window. Note: The popup window also closes if you touch the map, choose Media Player or an app, or display a controls window, even if the climate control system is turned on. 3. Turn the air conditioning on and off, respectively. Turning it off reduces cooling, but saves energy. 4. Choose where air flows into the cabin (windshield, face-level, or foot-level vents). You can choose more than one location. Note: When air is directed to the foot-level vents, approximately one third of the air continues to flow to the windshield vents to assist in defogging. However, when air is directed to the face-level vents, air does not flow to the windshield because the air flowing through the face- level vents can assist in defogging the windshield. 5. If your Model X is equipped with the Bioweapon Defense Mode feature, the HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter ensures the best possible quality of air inside the cabin. When selected, outside air is filtered through the medical-grade HEPA filter in addition to the secondary filtration systems. The HEPA filter is extremely effective at removing particles, including pollution, allergens, bacteria, pollen, mold spores, and viruses. Both the HEPA filter and the secondary filtration system also contain activated carbon to remove a broad spectrum of odors and gases. When you engage Bioweapon Defense Mode, the fan operates at the highest speed. In addition, the positive pressure inside the cabin minimizes the amount of outside air that can leak into the vehicle. Note: Some gases, such as carbon monoxide, are not effectively removed by activated carbon. 142 Model X Owner's Manual

Climate Controls 6. Choose how air is drawn into Model X: Outside air is drawn into Model X (see Ventilation on page 144). Air inside Model X is recirculated. This prevents outside air (traffic fumes) from entering, but reduces dehumidifying performance. Recirculating the air is the most efficient way to cool the front cabin area. To prevent the windshield from fogging in some conditions, briefly change the setting every hour to draw in outside air. 7. Touch AUTO to change all settings on the currently displayed tab back to their default values. The icon is blue whenever the climate control system is set to AUTO. Note: Because Model X runs much quieter than a gasoline-powered vehicle, you may notice the sound of the A/C compressor as it is operating. To minimize noise, reduce the fan speed.

Air Suspension ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION DAMPING: Choose from STANDARD or SPORT to adjust the feel of the suspension system. STANDARD provides a softer and more fluid ride whereas SPORT provides a firmer, more controlled ride that increases driver engagement and connection to the road. 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 X slows down. Note: After leaving a saved location, the suspension may not lower until you are driving faster than the speed threshold at which the suspension lowers. Note: If Model X 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 auto- raise at a saved location, touch the X in the auto-raising location status message that displays at a saved location. Doing so removes the auto-raise location and the suspension no longer raises automatically when you arrive at the location. Note: Available settings depend on your driving speed and other conditions. For example, the suspension does not lower if a door is open. Note: Your chosen Suspension Lowering and Adaptive Suspension Damping settings are saved to your driver profile (see Driver Profiles on page 46). Auto-Raising Suspension Auto-raising suspension saves you from manually having to raise the suspension every time you arrive at a frequently-used location where you have previously raised the suspension. Whenever you raise the suspension to HIGH or VERY HIGH, Model X saves the location. When you return to the saved location, Model X raises the suspension and the instrument panel displays this message: Note: Manually lowering the suspension to STANDARD, LOW, or VERY LOW while at a saved location also removes the auto-raising location. 158 Model X Owner's Manual

Air Suspension Jack Mode Before jacking or lifting, set the suspension to Jack mode to prevent the self-leveling that occurs even when Model X is powered off. Press the brake pedal, then touch Controls > Suspension > Jack. To deactivate, touch Jack again. Note: Jack mode automatically cancels when you drive over 4 mph (7 km/h). Note: Model X also sets Jack mode automatically if it detects that the vehicle cannot lower to its target height, or if it detects that an object is supporting the vehicle's weight (for example the bumper of the vehicle is resting on a curb).
