Elon Musk puts ‘bio weapon defense system’ into Tesla SUVs

In contrast to all other automakers, Tesla CEO Elon Musk somehow manages to find ways to incorporate humor into his otherwise serious luxury electric cars. The new Model X luxury crossover, unveiled Tuesday, is no exception.elon-musk-tesla

The vehicle has such an intensely effective air filter for passengers that there’s a “bio weapon defense mode.” It’s a button in the climate-control system and it’s labeled with the international biohazard symbol. Musk says the car’s filtration system is so effective that test equipment couldn’t detect air ipmerfections. Thus, if there was a germ attack, the safest place to be would be inside your Tesla SUV.

“If there was a bio weapon attack, all you would need is to get inside your car,” Musk told reporter. aMusk sounds serious, but remember, the Model X and Model S also have a “lucicrous mode” to denote its highest performing acceleration, an improvement on the previous “insane mode.” Also, the Model X’s stereo system can be cranked to 11. Not 10, but 11.
