【特斯拉再次升级 引来更大安全隐患】

【特斯拉再次升级  引来更大安全隐患】近日,特斯拉针对鹰翼门进行了再次升级,调整修复了车门内部的感应器,目的是改善车门关闭稳定性,减少错误探测障碍物的可能,使它能够更快地开关门。但是车主却开始担心车门可能严重夹伤手或手臂。据实验视频显示,Model X车门可以轻易地将一般大小黄瓜切成两半。

Tesla, it turns out, is just like any other tech company: sometimes its software updates upset users and hinder functionality. Maybe the upstart EV automaker is fallible after all.

Tesla recently pushed software update version 7.1 2.32.100 to its Model X vehicles that was designed to address issues with the SUV's signature Falcon-Wing doors. The company enhanced a set of sensors in the doors, aiming to improve and expedite the opening and closing procedure.

Specifically, "we adjusted the sensors in the Model X Falcon Wing doors to improve closure consistency and reduce false detection of obstacles," a Tesla spokesperson told Mashable.

The software overhaul may have had the opposite effect. Owners are now reporting that the update completely disabled some safety sensors in the doors. In fact, one owner posted a couple videos on YouTube of his Model X's Falcon-Wing doors chopping up cucumbers.

Obviously, this is a huge safety concern. As the video below demonstrates, a rear passenger could now have the door close on their hand or fingers.

This is just yet another issue in a string of problems Tesla has faced with the Falcon-Wing doors. In April, we reported that some Model X owners complained their SUV's Falcon-Wing doors wouldn't open or close.

A few months later in June, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company was close to finally making the doors "useful."

It seems like every time Tesla is taking a step forward with the fancy but problem-prone doors, it in fact takes two steps backward. I hope Tesla is learning a lesson from its "hubris" (Musk's word, not mine).
