Chill is a mode that helps the Model S and Model X owners to town down the acceleration speed. This is why it's called chill.

If this option is selected in the settings, the car will accelerate more smoothly, which will provide an increased level of comfort. This can be useful for new owners of electric cars who are not used to driving an EV. In addition, the Chill mode is useful in the transportation of older people, children or fragile goods. Of course, the standard acceleration mode is there too.

To use the Chill option, tap Controls, Driving. Then in Acceleration, choose Chill.

The Easy Entry mode, in turn, is designed to improve the comfort of getting in and out of the car.

After activating this option, when the car is disconnected, the driver's seat will be automatically retracted and the steering wheel will be lifted up. The subsequent start of the car will return the "steering wheel" and the chair to their usual places in accordance with the preset settings.

To use your Easy Entry profile, tap Controls, settings Driver Profiles and check Use Easy Entry. When You are prompted, adjust the steering wheel and driver's seat, and save your changes to the Easy Entry profile.
