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.

Touchscreen

Avatar screen hold trending idea

I noticed that the avatar screen provides quite a good rear view if you manually rotate the screen (see pic). Unfortunately the view is not fixed and returns after a few seconds to the regular forward view. For better situational awareness it would be great to allow the driver to hold the rear view in place without keeping your finger on the screen. Should be an easy option to implement and improve overall safety.

3 Sentry mode additions trending idea

  1. Right now reviewing sentry mode is so slow. For faster reviewing: Show 4-8 pictures of what triggered the recording. When you press on a picture it rewinds to 2 second before the trigger and starts the video there. 

  2. Even if sentry mode is off, if the car is bumped on moved. It should trigger a camera or video. 

  3. Add a map overlay so you know exactly where the event happened.

Charging

Tesla to Tesla Bump Charge trending idea

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.

RV powered by Tesla? trending idea

Ever since you came out with the Tesla Semi I have been thinking about what it would be like if RVs could be powered by Tesla. While I am not an engineer I was a producer for over 20 years and I would like the opportunity to "produce" this idea and coordinate between Tesla and RV coach builders to design a better way to "RV". You may already be working on this but I thought hey why not give it a shot and reach out. Thank... more »

Parking aid for other cars Unverified Translation

It would be great if we have our Tesla parked in line and another car wants to park behind or in front of us, our Tesla will help the other car through the parking sensors, detecting the other car and instead of emitting beeps, it will flash the lights or turn signals. longer or shorter depending on the distance, so that the other driver has extra help from Tesla

Ask Elon / Tesla a Question

Can we get updated on Car to grid?

With Tesla already experienced with car to grid from the original roadster and the fact that Lucid, Polestar and Hyundai are all claiming to have car to grid, Can Tesla pleae confirm that future vehicles can work to support our Powerwalls in emergency backup situations? Those of us with roadsters will not be driving them as day to day cars and will have mid scale battery powerplants available when needed.

Virtual rear-view mirror on Touchscreen

The Model Y visibility out of the rear window is poor. Also if you have a lot of cargo stacked in the rear, blocking the window, the rear-view mirror is useless. In my Toyota RAV 4 and my Chevy Bolt there is an option to display the backup camera in the rear-view mirror for situations where the rear window is blocked. For the Model Y, how about adding an option to display the rear-camera in part of the touchscreen (for... more »

Add 'waypoints' for making multiple stops on a single trip Selected

When traveling longer distances or when your battery is lower it would be nice to enter all of the destinations you need to stop so the navigation can tell you if/where you need to charge during this trip. The function of this would act just like google maps, you could enter all your destination points in the order you need to stop at them, with the added function of routing you to chargers if needed, just like the current... more »
