Current Trip

Tesla vehicles feature a "Current Trip" odometer that resets after each drive. This odometer tracks metrics such as distance traveled, average energy usage, and time spent driving. It can be reset manually by tapping the "Reset Current Trip" button on the screen.

Since Last Charge Odometer

Tesla vehicles also track distance traveled and energy used since the last charge, providing insight into your typical charge cycle or average energy usage. This odometer can only be reset by charging the vehicle.

Viewing Odometer Using the Mobile App

Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles offer trip cards, which provide quick access to trip meters and tire pressure information. To access trip cards, swipe left on the mini music player controls. You can choose between the music player, trip cards, and tire pressure cards.

Customizing Trip Meters

You can choose up to four trip meters to display on the Trips card by navigating to Controls > Trips and selecting "Show in Trips Card" for each meter you'd like to display. Note that trip cards are not available in Model S and Model X vehicles.
