Static Cruise Control


Now Implemented!


Maintain cruise control speed while going up or down hills.


My Mercedes will maintain the speed I set in the cruise control even if going downhill. So if I select 75 MPH on the cruise, it maintains that exact speed uphill and downhill so I don’t have to worry about getting a speeding ticket. Since Tesla buys the steering wheel stalk to control the cruise control from Mercedes, all it would take is a reprogram to apply the brakes when necessary.


Tesla offers traffic-aware cruise control since about 2014.  It maintains the speed when no car is in front, going up or downhills.

If they don't indicate "open" or "resolved" what do the red dots and check marks mean here? Sorry for the newbie question, but this doesn't seem obvious...

Is there a way to remove my OP?

Even better than removing it would be an option to mark it "resolved". I'd hope that we regularly will have to mark items as resolved in the future! A resolved item should still be present and it should still be possible to add comments, but voting should be closed and it should clearly be marked as no longer relevant.

When I wrote this comment I had only test driven the S and I didn't understand how the cruise worked fully. Now that I have my S I'm happy to report that the S does have a static cruise control. Is there a way to remove my OP?

From what I can tell, the Model S already does this.  When going downhill, it maintains the set speed...but maybe that is only within the regen limit and it doesn't actually apply brakes.
