Tesla Model X doors have received added safety features through an over-the-air update to the car's Firmware. In order to prevent unintentional door closing by accidental pressing of the button on the key fob while it's, say, in an owner's pocket, Tesla has added a new setting that allows one to enable or disable the feature. Also, Tesla has added a 30-second delay after using the close button before the front door will auto present, in order to prevent doors from accidentally opening into traffic. "If you order a Model X now, or soon, trust me, you will love the doors, because the software will actually be right," says Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Read more at Teslarati.

People will have room to sleep in the back of the Tesla Model 3. Just as we saw with the Tesla Model S, the Model 3's seats will fold flat, allowing enough room for a person to lie down in the rear of the car. Not that many will likely use the space for slumbering or what have you, but it does go to demonstrate that Model 3 reservation holders needn't have reservations about cargo space. Elon Musk has also said that a bike would fit in the Model 3 without problems. Read more at Electrek.

Tesla's Online Design Studio suggests similarly equipped inventory when customers configure their vehicle to order online. Tesla recently added a new inventory section for cars it already has in stock at locations around the country. Now, when a customer is choosing their vehicle, they're given a low-wait option to buy a vehicle with similar specifications to the one they're trying to order. The feature shows how closely the inventory vehicle resembles the custom order, and the delivery time, which is certainly much less than waiting for a car to be built at the factory.

Samsung suggests it could be considering building a car. The company, which already provides batteries for electric vehicles, has a further interest in the automotive industry according to Vice Chairman Lee Jae Young. Samsung is also rumored to be in talks to purchase Fiat's electronics supplier, Magneti Marelli, and undertook a failed venture with Nissan in the 1990s to create Samsung Motors, and still holds a stake in Renault.
