Tesla Rolls Out China Update 2023.12.9 with Customizable Regen Braking

Tesla dropped software OTA update today, version 2023.12.9, exclusively for customers in China. The update brings back user control over kinetic energy recovery, regenerative braking intensity.

The full list of version updates includes:

Added a reminder when the accelerator is held down for too long.

Refined the Stopping Mode feature; the factory default is now “Slow Creep.”

Added Icelandic language support.

New feature: an audible gear shift reminder.

The mobile app now lets you control calls using the left scroll wheel button on the steering wheel.

New feature: customizable steering wheel buttons to access more functions.
