Tesla's Bio-Weapon Defense mode is not a gimmick

By Faiming_low on 05 May 2016 in New technology, Other News

Attached Image Model X's Bio-Weapon Defense mode is not a gimmick, says Tesla and they have conducted a test with good results to prove the critics wrong.

According to Tesla, its air conditioning system is able to protect the car’s occupants from a military-grade bio attack and is more than adequate to fight real-world conditions in polluted cities.


Attached Image To show that its claims are real, they have conducted tests in a large bubble contaminated with extreme levels of pollution - 83 times over EPA’s good" air quality index limit of 12 µg/m3. After closing the doors for more than two minutes, the HEPA filtration system reduced the hazardous 1,000 µg/m3 polluted air to undetectable levels. This allowed the technicians to remove their gas masks to breathe the clean air inside the car. Furthermore, the system began vacuuming the air outside the car as well, reducing PM2.5’s levels by 40 percent.

Attached Image Tesla isn't done with its filters though and will continue to further develop the filters, improving their micro-geometry and chemical passivation defenses.

Filtering not only the Air in the car but also outside of the car.

Helps filters aren't cheap.

My heap filter replacement alone cost me $500 plus.

It also means that the car is not as Air tight as compared to other cars

The car air filter was able to clear 40% of outside "polutant" inside the bubble.

Some cars like Lexus, BMW are more air tight.

If car filter can easily clean 40% of outside polutant, it also stands to reasoning that dirty air from outside can easily get into the car.

Perhaps the air-conditioning system was put to circulation mode?
