Tesla has said through director Elon Musk that a problem with the anit blocking system at the brakes of the Model 3, as found by the American consumer organization Consumer Reports, is resolved via a firmware update.

Musk has said on Twitter that the abs problem can probably be resolved with a firmware update. This update will be available in the coming days. It is not so much a general problem that leads to poor braking performance, but more to inconsistency in braking.

Consumer Reports experienced no problems or deviations at the first attempt, with the Model 3 having a normal braking distance. In repetitive tests, however, the organization found that the car required significantly longer braking distances even after the brakes had cooled down. If a braking test was done at a speed of 100 km / h, the car only came to a standstill after 46 meters. That is considerably longer than the average braking distance that other modern cars need for this. Musk indicated that the Model 3 had a braking distance of 38 or 40 meters in its own tests

According to Musk, the problem has to do with an algorithm that is used to calibrate the anti-lock braking system. He thinks that braking performance with further refinements can be even better than the values ​​that the official specifications now indicate. The CEO also states that Consumer Reports has tested an early production copy of the Model 3.
