Vehicle Command Behavior

How Tessie vehicle commands work

The Tessie API adds several improvements on top of Tesla Fleet API and makes commands substantially more reliable.

Tessie API endpoints will automatically handle:

  • Authorization
  • Region handling
  • Vehicle Command Protocol signing and routing
  • Vehicle wakes
  • Network errors
  • Firmware errors

By default, Tessie will wait to return a response until the command is complete. This behavior can be changed in the parameters of each request.
