The truth is that every so often Elon Musk surprises us with some incredible ideas. And today, the CEO of Tesla has done it again. Mostly because the company will add a bioweapons defense mode to the Tesla Model Y.
Yes, you read that correctly, and as if that were not enough, this new function will be extended to the rest of the vehicles of the electric motor giant. The idea is, on the one hand, offer the best air filtering system in the face of the high level of pollution in some cities, but it is still surprising.
What’s more, have updated their HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air), that will now have a defense mode against a possible attack with biological weapons. The most curious thing about this is that the idea did not come from the privileged mind of Elon Musk. It was Larry Page, CEO of Google and investor in Tesla who suggested this feature.
First the Model Y, Model X and Model S, then it will reach the rest of Tesla cars

As you can see in the Twitter message that heads these lines, this new system referred to as “Bioweapon Defense Mode”, It includes a biohazard icon on the screen and several modes to select how the air will circulate inside the cabin.
As the company has indicated, The first models to have this function will be the Model X, Model Y and Model S, although in the future it will reach the rest of the vehicles in the range. Regarding this HEPA filter against biological weapons, the firm boasts that it is 100 times more effective than a premium filter.
This type of filters, widely used in the aeronautical industry, They are capable of eliminating 99.97% of the dust, pollen, mold, bacteria or virus particles that circulate through the air, making you breathe much purer air.
The icing on the cake is the fact that Elon Musk wanted his Tesla cars to be very hermetic, to the point that they helped rescue people during the floods in China, since these vehicles continued to operate despite the water reaching the engine. Thanks to this, traveling in a Tesla car will be safer than ever.
Of course, it should be noted that the Tesla Model 3 will be the only model that will not have this special filter against biological weapons, simply because it does not have enough space for this element to be installed. Definitely, a detail to take into account, more in these times of coronavirus …
