Usually, the main part of a car is its physical attributes, like engine size or seat colour. This is where Teslas are different. They’re are renowned for the amazing software onboard, which makes any user feel like a butler.
In this guide, I’ll be listing the available voice commands in Teslas which allow you to control the vehicle with only a few words. It doesn’t get more futuristic than that, right?

Do voice commands change depending on the Model?
No, the voice commands on a Tesla change when the software is updated, so as long as your model has the latest version of the software, you will be able to use all of the commands.
How to use Voice Commands
To use voice commands in a Tesla, simply press the button on your steering wheel. The location of this button varies by the model, but it will usually have an icon of a person’s head with sound waves coming out of it. Once you’ve pressed the button, just speak the command out loud, your Tesla will then listen to you and perform the action.
