Putting the Tesla HEPA Filter and Bioweapon Defense Mode to the Test | Tesla Motors

Also see Elon Musk says Tesla’s Bioweapon Defense Mode ‘is real’ after life-saving car demo (The Next Web), which notes "The Tesla teams says that this technology, over anything it can do to avoid car crashes, will save the most lives as pollution kills three million people in the world every year, according to the World Health Organization."

"The plot below shows the subsequent evolution in pollution levels inside the vehicle and inside the bubble. In less than two minutes, the HEPA filtration system had scrubbed the air in Model X, bringing pollution levels from an extremely dangerous 1,000 µg/m3 to levels so low as to be undetectable (below the noise floor) by our instruments, allowing us to remove our gas masks and breathe fresh air while sitting inside a bubble of pollution.

Not only did the vehicle system completely scrub the cabin air, but in the ensuing minutes, it began to vacuum the air outside the car as well, reducing PM2.5 levels by 40%. In other words, Bioweapon Defense Mode is not a marketing statement, it is real. You can literally survive a military grade bio attack by sitting in your car."
