When Model S starts, you may hear the sound of the compressor as the air suspension system’s reservoir fills with air.Your Model S is equipped with Adaptive Air Suspension that offers superior ride quality and allows you to choose a softer or firmer ride based on your preference. When carrying loads, the system also maintains a level height between the front and rear. You can manually adjust the ride height to suit your circumstances (for example, you can raise Model S when you need extra ground clearance, such as when driving on a steep driveway or ramp, in deep snow, over large speed bumps, parking curbs, etc.)If a fault is detected that reduces the performance of the adaptive air suspension system, a yellow indicator lights up on the instrument panel. If the problem persists, contact Tesla.If a fault is detected that disables the adaptive air suspension system, a red indicator lights up on the instrument panel. Contact Tesla.
Before adjusting the suspension height, ensure Model S is clear of all obstacles, above and below.You can manually adjust the ride height by pressing the brake pedal touching Controls > Suspension on the touchscreen. The ride height settings that are available depend on your driving speed and other conditions (for example, the suspension does not lower if a door is open). The touchscreen also displays the approximate ground clearance for each setting. Drag the slider to choose from these options:
Very High - When set to Very High, the suspension automatically lowers to the default ride height* (Standard or Low) after driving approximately 100 feet (30 meters) or when driving speed reaches 15 mph (24 km/h). To maintain the Very High setting for an unlimited distance until your driving speed reaches the speed threshold, touch Keep until 15 mph.
High - When set to High, the suspension automatically lowers to the default ride height* (Standard or Low) after driving approximately 100 feet (30 meters) or when driving speed reaches 35 mph (56 km/h). To maintain the High setting for an unlimited distance until your driving speed reaches the speed threshold, touch Keep until 35 mph.
Standard - The Standard setting ensures optimum comfort and handling under all loading conditions.
Low - Lowering the height can improve aerodynamics, make it easier to load or unload cargo and passengers, and improve handling.
*If the Default Ride Height to Low setting is turned off, the ride height is adjusted between Standard and Low to balance ride comfort with handling and range. To optimize handling and range, turn on the Default Ride Height to Low setting.
Avoid driving aggressively (hard accelerations, sharp turns, etc.) when the suspension is set to High or Very High. Doing so can cause vibration and increase the possibility of damage.
Adaptive Suspension Damping
The settings associated with Adaptive Suspension Damping provide real-time adjustments to the suspension system to optimize both ride and handling. Choose from:
Comfort - Provides a gentler ride for a relaxed driving experience.
Auto - Adjusts to a wide range of roads and driving styles, providing a fluid yet well controlled ride.
Sport - Provides a firmer, more controlled ride that increases driver engagement and connection to the road.
Advanced - Can be used to fine tune the suspension by dragging individual sliders that adjust Ride Comfort and Handling.
Touch Show Suspension Data to display detailed information about the dampers for each wheel, including ride height, compression and rebound values, and body accelerations.
Use Comfort Damping in Autopilot (if equipped) - By default, damping automatically sets to the Comfort setting when using Autopilot, and reverts back to your chosen setting when Autopilot is no longer in use. Turn this setting off to disable this feature.
The image of your Model S on the Suspension screen provides a real-time visualization of the status of the air suspension system. In addition to visually showing changes to the ride height, it displays Compression and Rebound lines that reflect how the suspension system is controlling the dampers for each wheel based on your chosen settings and changing road conditions. Both are controlled simultaneously. Touch Show Suspension Data to display detailed information about the dampers for each wheel, including ride height, compression and rebound values, and body accelerations.
The instrument panel can also display a real-time visualization of how the suspension system is dynamically adjusting each wheel’s damping to account for changing road conditions. To view, hold the respective steering wheel scroll button briefly until the available options are displayed. Roll the scroll button to highlight Suspension, then tap the scroll button.
Whenever you raise the suspension to High or Very High, the location is automatically saved. By saving the location, you do not need to manually raise the suspension every time you arrive at a frequently-used location where you have previously raised the suspension. When you return to the saved location, Model S raises the suspension and the instrument panel displays a message indicating that the suspension is being raised.
When saving locations, Model S also saves the Keep until XX mph setting (if specified).
When returning to a saved location and driving faster than the High and Very High suspension settings allow, the suspension does not raise until Model S slows down
After leaving a saved location, the suspension automatically lowers. However, it may not lower until Model S meets the speed and distance threshold at which the suspension lowers.
If Model S reaches a saved location and the existing suspension setting is already higher than the level that has been saved for that location, the ride height is not adjusted.
To remove an auto-raising location
If you do not want the suspension to automatically raise at a location, touch to deselect Always raise at this location in the popup that appears when you arrive at a saved locatio
Model S equipped with air suspension automatically self-levels, even when power is off. To prevent damage when jacking or lifting the vehicle, you must activate Jack Mode to disable self-leveling (press the brake pedal and touch Controls

While an air suspension system is more complex, the advantages are
clear. The system is comprised of a central air suspension
comrpessor as well as air struts within an air bag at each wheel.
The air compressor presssurizes the air struts as needed to control
the feel. Other components can be seen in the diagram above, all of
which are mainly air lines to transfer pressure and driers (filter)
to complete the system.
In this guide, we take a look at the Mercedes Adaptive Damping System or ADS. What it is and how to tell if your Mercedes-Benz has it.
Many Mercedes-Benz vehicles are equipped with Airmatic suspension, including E, S, ML, GL, R, and SL classes.
There is a lot of confusion on the Mercedes Adaptive Damping System or ADS.
Sometimes Mercedes ADS is even confused with Active Body Control (ABC) hydraulic suspension.
A few Mercedes vehicles are equipped with (ADS) in addition to Airmatic. Think of ADS as an add-on to the Airmatic. In fact, even though ML, GL, R class sold in the US have air suspension as standard, not all of them have ADS.
