The Model X dance is an innovative feature from Tesla that allows owners to show off their car’s personality, and it’s easy to do.

Check out this step-by-step guide for dance mode below:

How To Make Tesla Dance

If you’re wondering how to make a Tesla dance, you’ve come to the right place. Once you’ve gone through these steps, you’re bound to impress a few bystanders (at least!) as your Model X puts on a show. It’s like a little Easter egg that the Tesla team hid away in this model to bring you joy when you find it.

1. Park Your Tesla in an Open Space

Your vehicle will be opening the front doors, so you’ll want to make sure there’s plenty of room on either side.

The car checks for obstacles too, so you don’t have to worry too much about that. For safety reasons, make sure you’re not parking your car too close to other vehicles.

2. Click the Little Arrow To Show the Extra Menu on the Control Unit

This little arrow gives you access to many things, some of which are important, fun, or nice to have. Expect to see things like a calling feature, calendar, and Tesla’s toy box. Play around with the extras to see which ones you’d like to use.

3. Tap on Toy Box

Tapping on the toy box opens a new menu with many options, but you want to tap on “Model Xmas.”

A pop-up will give you instructions on how to proceed to enable the dance. But the general idea is to step out of the vehicle and press the lock button on your key fob. This will start the dance.

And that’s how to make your Tesla dance!

Here is a YouTube video for a visual explanation: 

What To Expect in the Model X Dance

Your Model X will start the dance by opening all the windows. Then, the music will start playing. It’s important to note that the music is a bit loud, but you can adjust the volume in the settings menu.

The light show follows with your headlights, taillights, and fog lights coming to life, all working in sync with the music. It’s a pretty cool sight that will turn some heads.

After that, your Model X will move its falcon doors up and down, along with some hip action. The doors will also open and close in time with the music.

Once the dance is over, your car will close all the doors and windows and turn off the music and lights, exiting dancing mode. That’s it! 

Random Fun Fact:

The Model X can dance without anyone in it. So, if you want to, you can start the dance and leave your car to enjoy the show. Just be sure to turn down the volume first!

Your Song Options

So far, Tesla offers only one song for the Model X dance: “Trans Siberian Orchestra.” But we imagine that they’ll eventually provide more songs to choose from.

This decision from Tesla is totally understandable. They did a lot of work to make the light show and dance sync with the orchestra, and they’ll have to repeat that for every other song they add.

This is obviously not a top priority for the team. They would rather spend their time developing better battery technology and dealing with the pains of growing their company. So, we’ll have to wait for more songs.

In the meantime, you can always enjoy the “Trans Siberian Orchestra” while your Model X does its thing.

Did You Know:

The 2022 Model X can open and close its doors 25% faster than previous models. The team has also managed to reduce road noise by 22%. Tesla also responded to the boot space issue caused by the falcon doors with an external solution to tow bulky things like skis and snowboards. 

Other Quirky Features in the Model X

Fart Noises (An Extra Easter Egg)

There’s a set of speakers that fart when you hit the emissions tab in the toy box. It’s not the most mature thing in the world, but it’s still a fun little addition.

You’ve got to give it to Musk (Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla) – he knows how to get people talking!

However, this sound will be external, and the user can choose which speaker (seating position) they want to use. The result is a super loud fart that is very popular with kids.

Dog Mode

The dog mode is another great feature that will keep your pet safe and comfortable while you’re away. The car will maintain a comfortable temperature and play soft music to keep your dog calm. You can also see a live stream of what your dog is doing while you’re away.

This mode also lets a message pop up on your screen, assuring any concerned passers-by that your dog is fine in the vehicle.

These are just some “Easter eggs” that make the Tesla Model X so special. A lot of thought went into the design and features of this car. And we can’t wait to see what Tesla comes up with next.

Random Stat:

The Tesla Model X can go from 0 to 60 mph (97 kph) in just 3.2 seconds. This makes it one of the fastest cars on the market. And with a range of over 200 miles (322 km), it’s also one of the longest-range electric cars.
