That's awesome if true. The ACC is way to variable on uphill/downhill, hopefully it will stick closer to the preset and doesn't prioritise efficiency, or at least gives us the option to toggle.
Yeah the fact that is runs 5-8km/h over even on the gentlest of slopes is pretty poor. Especially when this would be a simple software tweak and the little bit of extra regen would be a positive thing anyway.

In some states they show a bit of common sense but in others there is zero tolerance. Thankfully there is a bit of leeway in mine ;)
I prefer the zero tolerance approach due to the number of muppets on the road. A mandatory IQ test should be taken prior to driving test and anyone who scores in the imbecile range should be sent to work at a nuclear reactor without any protection.

From a Polestar 2 tester (not me).

This is good, though the seat and steering wheel heating is fixing something that previously existed/worked.

Not a fan of the fact that they've defaulted them to level 1, instead of defaulting them to the settings you can already program them to be when below 10c/50f.

You get a fine for going over 2km/h the posted speed limit?
From fixed cameras they have 2km and 3km for mobile cameras as a tolerance for measurement error. There’s in theory an undisclosed tolerance on top of that, but I’ve seen a fine issued for 64km/h detected, 61km/h alleged indicating that at least for my state, it’s likely bullshit

Uk Fixed Cameras have a tolerance of 10%+2mph (allegedly) so in 70mph zones 77 should trigger the camera. I always just stick to 72 so when ACC increases speed on a downhill section it won’t go past 74mph.

Years ago, it was explained to me that in the UK in a 70 mph zone, if you were measured at 80 (1 mph over 70 + 70*10% +2)
  1. and were booked by a Police car - then you got a 73 mph ticket, they ignored the 10% over.
  2. if you got booked by a variable choice taxation point (traffic camera) you got an 80 mph ticket

Agreed, there’s no reason for it to not be able to hold the speed better on inclines.

And yes, I’ve had a speed camera fine for 2km/h over the limit; for those in Australia on Fitzroy St in St Kilda, Melbourne. And if you declare that in the US on your insurance they treat it as a citation and it impacts your premium. Which is why I really like the variable speed limiter feature that is not available on US cars but is common place now in other countries.
