Santa: Tesla 'Santa Mode' Easter egg turns your EV into a winter wonderland

Dive into the Easter egg sectionon your EV and you'll discover a reindeer button that invokes a Santa Mode. To say it brings a Christmas vibe to your car would be an understatement. It turns your car into Santa's sleigh on the dash display (and other cars into reindeer), but that's really just the start of the flourishes.

The new mode plays the late, great Chuck Berry's version of "Run Rudolph Run" when it first kicks in, for one thing. You'll also hear sleigh bells when you invoke a turn signal. And if you're fortunate enough to have a car with Autopilot, the road ahead will suddenly turn icy. The kicker? There may even be more -- Elon Musk has hinted that there's an "Easter egg inside the Easter egg, but it's not funny." We're still trying to discover what that is, but it's evident that Santa Mode is as much a challenge as it is a treat for drivers.
