Welcome to the Tesla Ideas Community.

Most cars depreciate right off the lot, stuck with the features that were frozen in time months or years ago. A Tesla, however, keeps improving after ownership, with over-the-air updates that bring new features to existing vehicles. This community is designed to collect ideas from Tesla owners and prioritize the best ones. You can submit ideas, vote on existing ideas, or add comments.

To submit an idea, please click the Submit New Idea button at the top of the navigation sidebar. You will then be asked to add a title and choose a campaign for the new idea. You will also have the option to add tags to the idea. To vote on an idea, simply click the up or down arrows to the right of the idea title/description. And to add a comment, click in the box below the idea.

Mobile App

Auto Close of windows trending idea

Sensor that detects rain could sense rain when parked and auto close windows if they are "vented"... At minimum if push alerts are set it could send a message to the user that asks "close windows?" when rain is detected... I frequently use the vent option for the windows in my car (live near atlanta) however I don't always see that it is raining until it is too late. I believe the hardware is all installed, just a little... more »

Mobile App

Idle falling/low tire pressure warning trending idea

A Tesla owner should never be surprised when walking out to their car only to find a flat tire, because the car is capable of alerting them. Allow user to turn on reporting [to the mobile app via push notification] of tire pressure state when car is idle at user-selected intervals from 1 to 12 hours, on demand [via user tapping a button in the mobile app "Controls" section] with or without automatic reporting [via push... more »

Touchscreen

Adjust Fan Speed While Watching Netflix or Hulu trending idea

When watching Netflix or Hulu or any other entertainment you cannot adjust the fan speed of a/c of the car. You have to exit of the screen and then go back and restart which may take a long time. I would like an easy way without stopping the theater program to adjust temperature.

Convenience

automatic frunk opening (no app, no car display required) trending idea

it has always annoyed me, now with a little baby on my arm it annoys me even more

to get access to the frunk, e.g. with full hands in front of the supermarket, i either have to operate the tesla app or climb into the interior and open the frunk on the display. it's really annoying!

prerequisite:

microphone/sonic sensor in the interior

idea:

if i e.g. knock 3 times on a window and at the same time i am connected with... more »

Modes

Ferry mode trending idea

During this summer's vacation, i had to take a ferry numerous times with my Tesla 3. Once on the ferry, it is not allowed to stay in the car or on the car deck during the voyage. The first times, i experienced the alarm going off short time after departure, i suppose due to car being moved without driving and/or reacting to rocking due to waves. After some googling, i turned off the alarm, but this also means the whole... more »

Autopilot

Being able to actually OWN my Full Self Driving license Purchase trending idea

Since the FSD is an additional OTA purchase, it will be great if I can transfer this capability from an old Tesla to the next one I'll buy.
Even if I have two Teslas it will be great to be able to use one FSD license on both of them (not at the same time of course). There should be a way to lock and unlock the FSD on any of the cars I own, and it is up to my discretion which of my cars will have this capability today.... more »

Charging

Tesla to Tesla Bump Charge

A dead battery is the worst. Once Tesla designs the new inverters how about adding the ability to bump charge a Tesla with a Tesla so you can get to a nearby charger? Add an S.O.S. button to inform nearby owners you need a bump and offer supercharger credits for being a Good Samaritan. 5% might just save someone hours of hassle and hundreds of dollars.

Safety

Extreme braking in the event of a collision

In addition to conventional braking systems, an extreme braking mode could be used in cases where a frontal collision of the vehicle is unavoidable.

The technology for such braking consists of well-known systems and is usable for single use only. Roughly speaking, the system is very similar to air bag technology, and the purpose of the system is to reduce the mass of the collision.

In a frontal collision, only the front... more »

Autopilot

Free FSD weekend

I think a lot of us who don't have FSD are interested in the option, but are worried the benefits might not be worth the price. My idea is to have "Free-FSD Week" where all tesla's on the road would be enabled to try FSD for a week. This could also be coordinated with a release of new FSD features or biannually. Not only would this give experience to drivers, but also may encourage many more people to purchase FSD.

Autopilot

Hand Detection touch sensitive steering

Please add touch sensitivity to steering wheel which detects hand or fingers, rather than asking to put pressure on steering every 30 seconds or so.

No fingers, alert the driver

10 sec wait and no hands detected, pull safely to the side and stop.

Also add gestures on this sensitive area to take actions. Without taking hands off:

- takeover steering quietly ( 4 finger wrap)

- increasing/decreasing speed (left or right... more »

Autopilot

Cruise Control at Current Speed

When setting the cruise control, it always locks at "current speed or map indicated, whichever is faster".

There are many places in my area, where it either has inaccurate map date, or it's simple not safe to drive at the indicated speeds.

When activating the cruise control at lower speeds, this means the car starts accelerating, until I can reduce speed on the scroll wheel - every single time.

It would be nice to... more »

Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection

- When AutoPilot is not activated, and turn signal is activated make a chime or sound play to alert driver to someone existing in blind spot. Similar to the mirror light blind spot functions other cars have. Instead of just a last second avoidance feature or visual on the screen which is not very safe to be looking at whilst driving.
- Could make another kind of "clicking" sound to passively let the driver know someone... more »

Fix for seat position problem

Apparently the seats do not have seat position sensors and use the seat motor run time to adjust seat positions. I had to turn off easy entry because it was so out of alignment.

 

My suggested fix is a recalibrate feature in which you would be instructed to move the seat , the tilt and the seat back to the most forward position before pressing the calibrate button.

I recline my seat often to the full recline position... more »
