For folks who find it hard to get in or out of the car due to lack of space, Tesla offers a brilliant feature called Easy Entry to resolve this trouble.
Well, Easy Entry is a different profile that you can use to get more room when getting inside or outside the car. When it’s turned on, the steering wheel and driver’s seat manually adjust when you attach/detach the seat belt or get out/in the car.
In this guide, I’ll share everything that you should know about the Easy Entry along with interesting topics that will help you in usage. Let’s start!
What Is Tesla Easy Entry and How It Works?
Tesla comes with a universal driver profile option that can be used by any driver (male or female) which is Easy Entry. You’ll basically find this setting on all Model S, Y, 3, and X cars.
So, what is Easy Entry on a Tesla car? Well, it is a setting that lets you get in or out of the driver’s seat in a more spacious way.
It’s a great feature that helps people not be hit by the steering wheel when entering or getting out of the car. As some folks need more space to get inside the car, Tesla with Easy Entry makes it easier.
In the Easy Entry setting, the car’s steering wheel and seat go further away from you when switching the gear to P (Park) mode and detaching the seat belt.
And then, when you return to the car and hit the brake pedal, the setting switch automatically goes back to the latest driving profile. For that, the car’s steering wheel and seat return to the earlier position.
However, the position can differ based on the key that is linked to your driver profile. In that case, you can bring back your earlier profile by selecting it from the add-on driver profile list. Note that the adjustment of the seat only happens on the driver’s side.
Do not use Easy Entry to shift the driver’s seat to the full rearward position when you install a child safety seat on the rear seat (right behind the driver’s seat).
