Super Efficiency Mode

This idea is to have a mode that super conserves power. For example, if you're in a situation where you don't think you'll make it to a charger, and you want to conserve as much power as possible. Some settings to enable in this mode:

  • screen is dimmed
  • chill mode enabled
  • max regen braking
  • climate control set to range mode

Any other ideas on how to improve efficiency while in this mode? Please comment below…

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 »

Set cruise power instead of speed

Add an option to set consistent power level instead of consistent speed for cruise (won't waste energy going up a hill and not getting nearly all of it back going down, will instead slow down on the way up — should include ability to set minimum speed for uphill and maximum speed for downhill).

Truck Bed Work Bench

Trucks have no efficient place for your tools, blueprints, computer, etc. when you're on the job site. They are filled with products that need to be cut, shaped, or designed to fit the designated need. Presently there is no solution for your truck to hold your tools and product while still working. You could bring an extra table but that takes up space in your truck bed. There is room for a table/work bench to be placed... more »

Climate control option for home thermostat-like settings

I fiddle with climate settings WAY too much! Vehicle climate control would benefit from being able to pick a high temperature threshold where AC would engage and a low temperature threshold where the heater would engage. Since everyone's tolerance and energy consumption needs are different, it would let them pick their personal thresholds. For example, I would set my high temperature to 74 F and my low temperature setting... more »

Safety

Parking aid for other cars Unverified Translation

It would be great if we have our Tesla parked in line and another car wants to park behind or in front of us, our Tesla will help the other car through the parking sensors, detecting the other car and instead of emitting beeps, it will flash the lights or turn signals. longer or shorter depending on the distance, so that the other driver has extra help from Tesla

Autopilot

commute caravan

Would it be possible to create a type of "commute caravan" option or mode, and would it be safer/easier/efficient? Where vehicles that are opted in to the mode can link with other opted in vehicles along the same route and create or join a "caravan"? Possible benefits:

- share cameras across caravan for overall traffic safety and awareness
- "drafting" to create power efficiency
- optimize power/braking efficiency across... more »

Hybrid with KE turbine or compressed air

Gasoline ICE/battery electric hybrid vehicles improved on the efficiency of gasoline ICE vehicles by

*using technology with more efficient power output

*recovering more kinetic energy

*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 »
