Tesla has once again demonstrated its commitment to innovation by updating its mobile application to version 4.19, which includes several new features aimed at improving the driving experience for Tesla owners.
The app, which has been praised for its excellent integration with Tesla vehicles, allows owners to control and customize their driving experience. With this update, the company has introduced several new features, including “Drive on Sunshine,” improved charging information, and a new section for non-Tesla charging membership.

One of the most exciting features of the updated app is “Drive on Sunshine.” This feature is specifically designed for Tesla Solar owners, allowing them to charge their electric vehicles using only the solar energy they produce. By doing so, owners can significantly reduce the cost of charging their vehicles while improving their power efficiency. This new feature is a clear indication of Tesla's continued commitment to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainability.
In addition to the “Drive on Sunshine” feature, the app now includes more detailed information about vehicle charging. Owners can now see an indicator for when the vehicle's battery heater is in use, as well as how much battery is lost to colder temperatures. This information gives owners a better understanding of how much range they can expect from their vehicles when charging to their desired amount.
Finally, Tesla has added a new section to its app settings for non-Tesla charging membership. Non-Tesla owners can now sign up for a membership that reduces the cost of charging by approximately 25%. The membership costs $12.99 per month and can be managed directly within the app. This new feature, combined with the launch of the new Magic Dock at Superchargers in the United States, shows Tesla's commitment to providing affordable and convenient charging options for all electric vehicle owners.
