Tesla has now added ‘Active Road Noise Reduction’ to the latest Model S and Model X electric cars. The new feature is available now via a software update and uses very similar technology found in headphones that have ANC built in to reduce the surrounding noise.

Tesla say that Active Road Noise Reduction uses two microphones in the front seats that measures the interior noise, then the speakers will push out some anti-noise sound to dampen the sound generated from the road.

The new update, which has number 2021.44.5 also adds the ability to only haver the drivers door unlock when the user gets close, the ability to change the climate control in the rear from the main front touchscreen and even be able to tell the owner if the car is experiencing any uneven tyre wear.
