Autopilot

Smooth out speed changes for Stop and Go

At low speeds in heavy bumper to bumper traffic, I like to engage TACC for safety. However, my passengers hate it because the system currently prioritizes maintaining a distance gap over ride smoothness.

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 »

Autopilot Modes: Chillax Mode

Just like the only thing past ludicrous speed is plaid, Autopilot needs a mode that is beyond Chill: Chillax. Instead of driving like Walter when he's totally late for a bowling tournament, autopilot in this mode would drive more like Jeff Lebowski: just like totally chill man.

In this mode, autopilot would behave like:
-accelerate slowly as possible (ie, don't spill your beverage man)
-speed limit setting is more of... more »

Tesla needs to detect cars stopped/slowing down ahead earlier

The car should gently let off the accelerator the instant it detects a stopped/slowing car ahead anticipating it having to do a full stop. The gradual slow down instead of a jerky last second stop will make... more »

Model 3 switch to Standard mode when accelerating in Chill mode

For the Model 3 it needs to be much simpler to switch from chill mode to standard mode when you want to overtake quickly. I much prefer to drive in chill mode as I find it is a much nicer journey experience for the rest of the passengers, but it would be great if Tesla could get the car to detect the accelerator being depressed fully and automatically switch to standard mode until it is eased off, then revert to chill... more »

Convenience

Fridge function in trunk

Option to extra-cool a portion of the car for storing your groceries. Perhaps the trunk, or even just the subcompartment in the trunk, or the Frunk Itself.

The use cases-

You grocery shop and need to run errands after you pick up the groceries

You don't have a cooler or you'd like a more space-efficient way to keep your picnic or camp food cool. Coolers take lots of space!
