Tesla Model Y has radar heaters to help autopilot function work in cold weather

Tesla has installed a beautiful system in its latest model to help autopilot operate in the coldest conditions. On Wednesday, a Twitter user posted a wiring diagram of the Tesla Model Y showing the electric SUV with a radar heater. Once the heat is transferred to the radar unit, it should help the autopilot run even if the rest of the Tesla Model Y is snowy or icy.

The automaker did not immediately respond to a request for comment for more information about the system, but it is the second beautiful feature found in the Tesla Model Y. Previously, we learned that this SUV became the first Tesla to use a heat pump, which would certainly help the battery to centrally power the car at low temperatures, rather than the air conditioning system.

Tesla Model Y began shipping to customers on the West Coast of the United States earlier this month, and Tesla still plans to continue shipping during the coronavirus outbreak. The automaker also closed its plant in Fremont, California, to comply with government orders against the coronavirus.
