Similar to saving dashcam clips upon honking the horn, this features would be to save clips upon emergency braking events or hard braking in general.
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 »
The car should gently let off the accelerator early if it detects a stopped car ahead anticipating it having to do a full stop. The gradual slow down instead of a jerky last second stop will make people feel... more »
The current regen mode does not allow for prolonged gliding or sharper regen when entering sharp bends, similar to changing down gears.
If we could have three or even four levels... more »
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 »
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.

Have a button on the screen when temperatures fall below e.g. 4 degrees C to set winter mode: reduce regen brake, chill mode on, and whatever other settings improve safe driving on ice and snow.
-set wipers up higher (like service mode) so the wipers can be kept warm and don't freeze
Regen braking otherwise will result in charging the battery when warm enough or accepting the charge.... more »
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.

*permitting stored energy to increase peak output
Battery electric/kinetic energy turbine hybrids or battery electric/compressed air hybrids might could improve on the efficiency of battery electric vehicles by the latter two methods,... more »
