Elon Musk has confirmed that a long-awaited update is coming to Tesla cars. Model 3, Model S and Model X are set to benefit from the update as well as likely subsequent cars such as the Pickup Truck and Model Y. The car’s infotainment system will now be compatible with Spotify, allowing an enhanced audio experience on the go. While motorists in the UK and across Europe have enjoyed this functionality for a few years now, other markets haven’t.

Due to a deal with Slacker in North America Spotify has not been made available to customers there, reports Electrek.

However, following a tweet asking for the features company CEO Elon Musk simply replied that it was ‘coming’.

There is no timeline on when the update but it is likely to occur.

Until then if motorists want to use Spotify they can simply connect their phone via Bluetooth.

The seamless integration into the Tesla infotainment system would be an easier integration of the technology.

Tesla is regularly making updates to its cars via over-the-air software updates.

These updates allow more new features to be introduced into existing cars to improve the functionality or in some cases the range.

The most significant of these updates in recent times was unveiled in April which allowed the Model S and Model X to achieve more range on a single charge.

The Model S can now travel up to 370-miles on a single charge while the Model X can mange 325-miles.

Both vehicles are also now capable of charging at a higher rate achieving 200 kW on V3 Superchargers and 145 kW on V2 Superchargers.

There was also an update to the suspension which made the vehicles drive better and smoother on the roads.
