Security Package option in BG

Security Package option in BG

Does anyone know why there is a Security option in Europe but not in the US.

I believe it is included in all US cars for insurance and regulatory reasons. In GB they may not have the same regulations, so Tesla is attempting to give the customer a choice if they want it or not to save them a couple bucks.

I don't believe this feature is included on US cars. The feature makes specific mention of it running off of a separate battery from the 12v. It also includes a motion activated intrusion alarm. If you look at the settings screen shot, it shows an additional setting (tilt/intrusion) not available on US cars.

You would think that since the cars are built in the same factory,
it would be available in the US.
