Tesla rolls out remote app for Model S – CNET Mobile

February 6, 2013 | Wayne Cunningham
Tesla announced today the availability of a smartphone app that lets Model S owners schedule charging and view remaining range.

When we reviewed theTesla Model S, we came away very impressed by the driving character and the cabin electronics, but some features, common on other high-end or electric cars, were missing. Tesla made up for one of those features by making a smartphone app available that will let Model S owners view their battery levels.

These types of apps have become common for electric cars; Ford offers MyFord Mobile for the Focus Electric and Honda has its HondaLink EV for the Fit EV. The electric car includes a mobile data connection, which owners can use to view everything from battery status to the car’s location. These apps often include features such as remotely starting or stopping charging, if the car is currently plugged in, and locking or unlocking the doors.
