Charging

Assigned Supercharging Stall Number

Its takes a lot of savvy to know which is the best stall when you get to a SuperCharger. Most people aren't aware of how SuperChargers are paired up for example. And/or it can sometimes be difficult to even know which stall is which b/c the numbers on the stall might have worn off. Or worse, not all stalls are the same (ie, V1, V2, or V3).

The idea would be to simply suggest which stall is the best stall for you. Tesla... more »

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 »

Charging

Charging complete alarm

Add button on charging screen to ring audible alarm when charging is complete. Needed to alert driver who may be taking a nap or engrossed watching a movie, etc. Add option for alarm volume for loud (nap mode) or low (no need to scare me), or increasing volume until cancel (best). This feature would avoid staying at charger too long, avoid idle fees, free up charging spot, etc. Note, I do not have the Tesla App available... more »

Convenience

Allow pre-paying for lifetime Supercharging, original owner only

I love the convenience of having unlimited lifetime Supercharging on my Model S.
I would happily pay an additional $5,000 up-front on the purchase of a new Model Y or CyberTruck to get the same unlimited Supercharging for the vehicle; non-transferrable, original owner only. At roughly $9 per Supercharge session, that's pre-paying for almost 600 supercharging sessions, or about 3 per month for 20 years, and is in line... more »

Charging

Charging Station Etiquette - Lower Bass Output

Often I've found at the supercharger station that drivers that remain in their cars will often blast their car stereos while they wait. It is not only disruptive to the other owners that are remaining in their cars but it can also be very annoying to the local homeowners. It is not only music but the sound effects in movies.

I would suggest that the bass be reduced significantly (and perhaps, the volume) of the sound... more »
