Tesla Caraoke is Tesla’s version of karaoke. It’ll allow you to play and sing some of the most popular karaoke songs, right in your car. Caraoke will display song lyrics directly on the screen without interfering with any critical information the driver needs to drive safely. The songs can be played with vocals or without. However, it does not have the ability to use a microphone or record you singing.
To access Caraoke tap the Music icon at the bottom of the screen. If you only see a thin music player with album art, artist info and controls, then you’ll need to expand your Music player by dragging it upward to reveal other music sources such as radio and Caraoke.
If you don’t see Caraoke, it may not be an active source or your car may not support it. It requires a car with MCU 2 or higher, which was released in 2018.
If your car is 2018 or later or has been upgraded to MCU 2, then you can check to see if Caraoke is hidden. You can tap on the Settings icon that is to the right of the music sources. After tapping it you’ll see various tabs on the left that will let you change your equalizer, audio balance and sources. Tapping on sources will present you with all the available audio sources for your car.
Which Cars Support Caraoke
Tesla Caraoke requires a vehicle with MCU 2 or higher. To check your version you can go to Controls > Software then tap on ‘Additional Vehicle Information’. You’ll want to look for ‘Infotainment processor’. If it says Intel Atom, then you have a vehicle equipped with MCU 2.
Tesla Caraoke is not available in all regions. So if you have a car with MCU 2 and Caraoke is not a hidden source, then it may not be available in your region.
Tesla Caraoke is available for all models, including the Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y.
Karaoke Song List
The songs and lyrics are provided by StingRay, the creator of karaoke apps and games for many platforms. Caraoke on Teslas is completely free to use and there are no songs to buy or download.
Mute Vocals (Microphone Icon)
By default Caraoke songs are played with vocals, but if you’d like to remove the vocals from the song, you can tap the microphone. The song will continue to play with the lyrics shown, but all vocals will be muted.
Can Caraoke be used while driving?
Yes, Caraoke is a feature that can be used while driving. Keep in mind that it will cover up some areas of your screen such as your navigation map, but your next turn will be displayed over your car visualization in the Model 3 and Model Y so that you can still follow directions.
The Caraoke screen has everything listed by category, however if you’d like to search for a specific song, you can do so by using the global music search. There isn’t a search specific to karaoke. After searching, the results will be broken down by music service and you should see a karaoke section if there are relevant matches.
Tesla drivers will now know when a Supercharge station is congested and will have the option to change their route to reduce their total travel time.
Not only does Tesla know exactly how many vehicles are charging at each location. It also knows the charge level of each vehicle and it could estimate the wait time for a Supercharger based on how many Teslas are nearby with a low state of charge.
Based on all of this information Tesla can come up with great suggestions on the best place to charge to reduce your overall trip time.
Tesla’s Supercharger rerouting feature will be useful, especially as Tesla starts opening its Supercharger sites to non-Tesla vehicles.
Tesla Model 3 is in the Top 10 best selling cars of 2021
Tesla’s Model 3 has landed a spot as the ninth best-selling car in the world for 2021, which is up 40% from 2020, according to Fiat Group World. The Model 3 accounted for 508,000 unit sales in 2021.
According to the data provided by Fiat Group World, the Toyota RAV4/Wildlander came in at number one, which is up from the second spot in 2020. The Ford F-150 pickup truck landed at number seven, down from the number 6 spot in 2020.
Toyota and Honda have four vehicles in the top 11 spots, while Nissan, Ford, and Tesla only have one spot.
Fiat Group World notes that the Tesla Model 3 continues to rise within the list and is expected to rank in the top five by the end of this year.
Additionally, the author adds that the Model Y is expected to outsell the Model 3 by the end of 2022, which means both the Model 3 and Model Y would both sit in the top five spots. The Model Y currently sits at the 19th spot on the list, which means the Model Y accounted for 392,000 sales in 2021. It rose from the 262nd spot, or 412%, from 2020.
It’s worth noting that the Model Y began its deliveries in 2020, which explains the significant jump in 2021. Earlier this year, it won U.S. News’ Best Luxury Electric SUV award.
Of the 110 vehicles included, the Model S and Model X did not make the cut. This is most likely due to their higher price tag.
With this data available and Fiat Group World’s insights, it’s entirely possible for the Model Y to overtake the Model 3 this year. And with Tesla constantly adding new features and bringing back ‘Enhanced Autopilot,’ consumers will likely jump on-board.
Tesla is currently battling global supply chain restraints, and Musk said at Bloomberg’s Qatar Economic Forum that these restraints are a bigger issue than competition from other competitive automakers.
“Our constraints are much. More in raw materials and being able to scale up productions,” Musk says.
