That made new Model Y owners feel a little left out, but Tesla appears to have started pushing the new update to Model Y vehicles tonight.

According to TeslaFi and other Tesla update tracking sites, the release was pushed to a number of Model Y’s in the late evening.

The Model Y 2020.28.5 release notes were similar to the earlier version, and included the passenger face vent update, and the Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (TLSSC) update that allows drivers to go 10km/h (5mph) over the speed limit.

There was also a range display update, which according to NotaTeslaApp appears to only be for Model Y owners with the Performance Upgrade package.

The full release notes are below.

Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (Beta)
When Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control is enabled, the Autosteer cruising set speed on residential roads can now be increased up to +5 mph (10 km/h) over the speed limit.

Range Display
Your car will now display a slightly higher range to more accurately reflect the capacity of the battery.

Passenger Face Vent
Your car will automatically disable the passenger face vents when no passenger is detected, lowering energy consumption in hot weather. This vent can be manually enabled by tapping where you’d like the passenger face vent to direct air within the climate control panel.
