Touchscreen

Display Both % and Miles Remaining Implemented

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

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 »

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

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 »

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

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 »

Reminder to shut off sentry mode during long term parking.

I parked at the airport for 4 days with sentry mode on. The battery went down from 260 to 85 km. After my return I was shocked but able to reach a supercharger with remaining 10 km.

 

Would be great when the system asks to deactivate sentry mode when navigation recognices that you are parking at an airport or train station.

Mobile App

Modify the Charging Ratio from the App Implemented

Modify the charging Amperage from the App, you can only turn on and off the charging of the car, but you can not select the input Amperage for the charging ratio.

This is useful because sometimes you forget you charged very slow the last time and while trying to change it from the app its not yet possible.

Mobile App

TESLA BATTERY APP

The current Tesla Battery App allows you to set the peak, off peak, and super off peak times by choosing one peak time and one super off peak time. This works fine, except that in some cases we have MORE than one super off peak time and so this cannot be programmed in.

I propose that we include the option to include a second PEAK and second super OFF PEAK time so that this can be properly allocated for.

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 »
