Touchscreen

Display Both % and Miles Remaining Selected

There are people that like Coke vs Pepsi. Some wash their legs when they shower and some don't. Is the shoe pink or gray? Some controversies are never resolved.

 

But, can we all agree to display battery % remaining AND miles remaining at the same time? Then we would all be happy.

Charging

Sophisticated Charge Timing Implemented

A setting to allow you to configure when you want the car to finish charging at a selected level (ex. so the battery temp is optimal in the morning before driving to work). Could also be used in cold climates to ensure battery is warm for a longer period of time.

Modes

Energy Saving/Deep Sleep Mode

When going on a trip, Tesla should have a deep sleep mode that disables nonessential functions to save battery such as leaving it at an airport for an extended amount of time. Sentry mode should also be turned off but only turned on when somebody tries to forcefully access the car. The owner should have the ability to put the car in and out of deep sleep mode on the mobile app and the app should alert the user of how... more »

Charging

Allow manual battery preconditioning for high speed charging

Add an option to manually initiate battery preconditioning for high speed charging.

In my home state of Tasmania, Australia, there are no Tesla Superchargers, but there are other third-party fast charging stations, including some new 350kW chargers. Unfortunately, because the Tesla Nav doesn't know about these third-party chargers, it doesn't know to begin preconditioning the battery for them, the way it does for Superchargers.... more »

Charging

200kw+ batteries/chargers with transfer switch

With the upcoming cyber truck and roaster, owners will have 200+ kilowatts available if they lose power. The original roadster had a transfer switch that would allow it to be used as a battery source during power outages. But, it didn't really have enough of a battery back up. Now we do… How do we get that included in these high battery powered upcoming vehicles. I have a founders roadster & cybertruck on order… They... more »

Charging

Smart charging time using weather forecast

In Quebec like elsewhere, we pay our Hydro Electricity based on outside temp. If temp < -12°c, electricity cost 6x. Can we get custom charging based on outside temp forecast? If weather expects temps to drop, charge now. If temp is to rise, charge when > -12°c when possible

Touchscreen

Show expected batterylevel on arrival

On the main screen, next to the current battterylevel/range indication, show the indication of the expected batterylevel on arrival, the same level you see on the energy trip graphscreen. Can also be done with an arrow indicating if you are below or above the expected energy level on arrival. So it's easy to see if you drive economical during the trip.

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 »

Mobile App

TeslaCoin

An incentive mechanism for EV owners; TeslaToken

TeslaToken (TT) can be an ERC20 token built and run on top of Ethereum blockchain. Supply of TT will be predetermined and limited (ex: 50 TTs every 10 mins until 21m reached..) Clearing of transactions will be done in a decentralized manner in Ethereum blockchain while supply of TT will be done via Tesla. Newly minted TT will only enter the system(become part of circulating... more »
