A Tesla Feature Has Been Found To Increase CO2 Levels Inside The Car – And It Has Elon Musk Alarmed

It has been revealed that Tesla has a feature due to a design flaw that increases carbon dioxide levels for passengers.

In response to a promotional clip posted by Tesla on Sunday, one customer said the company’s recirculation feature, which makes use of air already in the cabin, causes a rise in carbon dioxide levels and had even given him headaches. The user shared a graph he created in 2020 using carbon dioxide level data he said he had collected from inside his Tesla.

“Note that when recirculation is on in Teslas, the ambient CO2 concentration in the air spikes to extremely high levels. I used to get headaches on road trips but w/o recirc I do not,” the commenter wrote.

Elon Musk’s responded to the complaint himself.

“We will look into this and adjust,” Musk said yesterday. “In general, I’d recommend against using recirc, as the range advantage is small.”
This is not the only problem Tesla has been facing lately.

Shareholders are of the idea that Musk has spent so much time and public attention on a deal for the billionaire to buy the entirety of Twitter, and just last week he announced that Tesla was pausing hiring because of a “bad feeling” before confusingly reversing course.

Now, Musk is telling customers a major efficiency feature isn’t advantageous and could be harmful. It is definitely raising concerns.
