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.

Notify when phone is left on charger pad trending idea

Have a notification that lets you know you left your phone on the charger pad when you leave close the door and leave the vehicle. This becomes important when your phone is the key and you depend on it to automatically lock when you leave the vehicle. So many times I have to run back to car to get my phone.

Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection Selected trending idea

- 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 »

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 »

Autopilot

Free FSD weekend trending idea

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.

Safety

Brakes and Always Leave and Out trending idea

Brake lights seem to be an issue in some Tesla accidents. The Tesla is rear ended.

Regenerative braking in my Model Y works very similarly to the way I used to brake in my other vehicles - with one huge exception: no brake lights going on. (My son almost drove into a car that was parked 2 feet from the curb in an English town. I was being the typical American dad-passenger and watching and it fooled me too.

Convenience

Mobile Battery trending idea

Is there or can the Tesla team create a mobile battery for the Tesla, like gas vehicles have gas cans for times they get in a rough situation to get mobile fuel, it would be amazing to have a mobile rolling suitcase type battery pack (that may even plug into a 110 power source) that could be easily removed from the vehicle for convenience as well as safety? Even if it can only add 20+ miles to the vehicle. I don't currently... more »

Charging

Minimum charge limit for safety reasons trending idea

Sometimes, after enjoying riding our Model 3, we connect the car to our charger at home and we have only 10% of battery charge left. This 10% of battery charge is not enough to drive to the nearest hospital or useful for any other kind of emergency (friends/parents in need, zombie attack). Because I have set Scheduled Departure at 8 a.m. the car will not be charged all evening and most of the night.

This is why I would... more »

Safety

Reduce unnecessary brake light activation

After seeing several videos of angry motorbike riders taking out their frustration on Teslas, I wonder if part of the reason is the activation of brake lights whenever the accelerator pedal is released.

As a lifelong manual driver I have always been careful to change down rather than brake to avoid annoying the drivers behind. I find it most embarrassing that, in my Tesla, I am constantly flashing my brake lights even... more »

Convenience

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

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 »

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.

Convenience

Heads Up Display (HUD)

A Heads Up Display would be great especially for Model 3, Y and the Cybertruck where there is no other display in front of the driver.

As FSD advances, and the car does most of the driving, the center screen will get more use for entertainment by passengers.
The driver should get to see some basics like battery, speed, speed limit and navigation data or warnings in the HUD.

Mobile App

Idle falling/low tire pressure warning

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

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.
