The idea would be to implement a brake blending (regen + regular brakes) option to keep deceleration consistent when one-pedal driving. This would especially be helpful when the battery isn't warm enough for regen, charged to 100%, or for older S and X models that don't support the new one pedal driving feature.
When using the Hold feature at stoplights, it can be hard to see the white, small H indicator that shows Hold is engaged. On some occasions it isn't engaged. By changing the color of the 0 mph speed indicator and possibly add a small H inside it, the driver will have a much clearer and safer confirmation that Hold is actually engaged.
My wife does not like one pedal driving, but low gen uses up the brakes too much and reduces range. Can we have a mid point? Perhaps when in 'Chill' Mode the regen on one pedal braking is a bit softer.

If the Tesla sees a car fast approaching, it should flash the rear break lights to try to get the attention of the driver.
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.

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 »
I would like to have the option to disable TACC and use "dumb" cruise control instead.
I have experienced horrible ghost breakings. Suddenly middle of an empty road the car slammed brakes for 1 second and continued forwards. There was absolutely no reason for this breaking. If a car would have followed me it would have caused a rear-end collision.
Tesla give us the option to go with "dumb" cruise control, please.
The gap we care about should be one of reaction time, not distance, i.e. the slower we go, the closer we can safely approach the car in front. At 2 mph, we travel ~3 feet per second. The Model 3 is 15 feet long. So... more »
