Elon Musk-owned electric vehicle company Tesla is working on moving driver profiles to the cloud for backing up driver profiles. In Tesla software updates reports there is a reference to a new feature called "Cloud Profiles", which gives the user the option to Enable Vehicle Sync' for individual driver profiles.
