Tesla Easy Entry: Redefining Vehicle Accessibility

Drivers can easily slide into and out of their Tesla vehicle thanks to Tesla’s Easy Entry feature. Automatically, after placing the car in Park with the driver’s seatbelt unbuckled, the steering wheel and seat return to their original positions. Drivers with mobility issues can benefit from Easy Entry, as it can assist them in aligning their bodies properly.

Tesla Easy Entry Redefining Vehicle Accessibility

Tesla Easy Entry Setup

Select Easy Entry from the Driver Profile menu when you create your profile for the first time.

Ensure that the driver’s seat and steering wheel are adjusted comfortably while in the Easy Entry setting, keeping in mind that each driver only has one Easy Entry setting.

Tesla Easy Entry Setup

A few tips on setting up a perfect Easy Entry position:

  • In order to get in and out comfortably, the seat should be far enough back
  • Make sure a child’s car seat does not move back too far behind the driver’s seat so that the leg of the child is obstructed or the car seat is dislodged
  • To activate customized seat positions and steering positions, drivers need to be able to tap the brake pedal without straining or stretching.
  • To ensure wheelchairs, walkers, or canes can comfortably pass through the vehicle, make sure the steering wheel or yoke is far enough up 
  • Make stepping into and out of the car easier by tilting the seat
  • Make sure the seat is set at a height that won’t cause taller drivers to hit the roof with their heads

The settings will then need to be saved.

Changing the settings for Tesla Easy Entry

(Resetting the steering wheel and seating positions)

It may be necessary to re-adjust your steering wheel and seating position periodically. You can do it by following these steps:

  • The Driver Profile button is located in the middle of the touchscreen. Make sure you are in the Easy Entry mode
  • Once you’ve found a position you prefer, adjust the seat and steering wheel accordingly 
  • You will be given the option to “save” your new settings or restore your previous ones. 

Tesla Easy Entry Activation

Easy Entry can be activated or deactivated at any time once your Driver Profile is set up. Simply go to Driver Profile and select the Easy Entry button if you would like to reactivate it after it has been deactivated. 

Turning off Tesla Easy Entry

Turn off the Easy Entry checkbox on your touchscreen’s Driver Profile setting to turn off Easy Entry.

Why Did Tesla Make Entry Easy?

As the name suggests, Easy Entry makes it easier for drivers to get in and out of their vehicles with extra space. With the steering wheel and seat pulling back automatically when the driver unbuckles their seatbelt, there is plenty of room to exit the vehicle. 

Once the Easy Entry position has been selected, it will remain in place until the next time the vehicle is entered by a driver. 

A vehicle’s custom driver profile settings, such as preferred seat and steering wheel positions, are automatically adjusted when the driver sits down and taps the brake pedal. 

Why do you need Easy Entry?

To simplify entry and exit from the vehicle, a driver may need Easy Entry. 

Here are some examples where Easy Entry can be very useful you might not have thought about. 

Easy Entry can be used to:

  • You will experience less joint and muscle strain (and fewer chances of hitting your head on the roof) if you are taller or shorter than average.
  • A hip replacement or painful joint should maintain proper alignment
  • Assist individuals with mobility issues in transferring themselves into and out of the car by providing the right angle and space 
  • Those carrying extra in front (like a handbag – what do you think we meant?) should be given extra room.
  • With these tips, you’ll be able to make a smooth, sexy entrance and exit in your stilettos (if you wear heels, you’ll know what we mean)!

Here’s how Easy Entry works 

There are several features associated with a Driver Profile, including Easy Entry.

It is as simple as activating Easy Entry in your Driver Profile. Easy Entry allows you to set the seat and steering wheel position for all drivers to use.  

Regardless of the driving position each driver chooses, the Easy Entry setting will remain the same.  

Easy Entry positions should be chosen so that they are suitable for all drivers, or those who need them most.

In order to prevent strains and injuries, it’s essential to keep your body in proper alignment for the duration of your drive. Additionally, it’s imperative that your steering wheel and seat positions help you see the road clearly. Tips on setting a customized seating position are provided below. 

Starting with Easy Entry: 

  • Adjust your seat height so that your hips are equal to your knees – Make sure your head and neck don’t strain in order to fully see the windshield and touchscreen
  • To touch the pedals, move the seat forward so your back stays in contact with the seat
