Tesla rumoured to roll out a “Romance Mode” when cars go autonomous
Cars are becoming increasingly autonomous and while as drivers we still need to have some input at the moment, there will be a time in the not-too-distant future where we simply get in, buckle up and the car will whisk us to our destination.
Tesla, the eccentric electric car company who is one of the pioneers of autonomous technology has acknowledged that we might get a bit bored if we just sit there at let the car do all the work.
And it seems they have some surprises up their sleeve. Tesla boss Elon Musk has tweeted that there will be a number of Easter eggs launched when his cars become fully autonomous. These include: toilet humour, video games and wait for it…”Romance Mode.”
We’re not exactly sure what Romance Mode entails, but it sure as hell could make those long drives more interesting.
Perhaps when you select Romance Mode your Tesla will start playing Barry White, the seats will recline and the seat heating may come on, there may be some mood lighting and the windows may automatically tint or some blinds to ensure privacy. Ooh al la!
But, this is all speculation. It’ll be interesting to see what Tesla actually has planned.
