Show a warning when the road could be slippery or icy. For example if the temperature drops below 32 degrees F, then the display should give a warning about possible slippery roads ❄️ 🌧 . Similarly, if rain is detected.
Please make sure the cybertruck can accomodate a snowplow. Most of the pickup market in the northern hemisphere of the US double duty their pickups for trailering AND plowing. Hope more people see the opportunity..
Be able to see battery temperature in the car and on the mobile app.
Edit: clarified that this idea is about displaying the temperature.
Use weather forecast, or manual mode to maintain cabin_temp > 1°C when freezing rain is happening. Would prevent doors, windows and especially handles from freezing up.
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
To prevent damage to wiper mechanism switch the wipers to off in freezing temperatures so they do not get damaged when in auto mode and frozen to the windscreen.
In Quebec like elsewhere, we pay our Hydro Electricity based on outside temp. If temp < -12°c, electricity cost 6x. Can we get custom charging based on outside temp forecast? If weather expects temps to drop, charge now. If temp is to rise, charge when > -12°c when possible
Increase temperature in dog mode to about 15,5°C - 26,5°C (60°F-80°F).
Currently, the lowest possible temperature in my Model 3 when activating "dog mode" is 19° C. In winter my dog, a Golden Retriever, would much prefer to have it colder. When it is 0° C outside, 16° C would be much better. And there is no need to active A/C, which consumes much more power than with heating only and A/C off.
A button for "Wiper off upon exit", Select this to NOT have the wipers function automatically every time you enter the car... Step on the break pedal and have a bunch of snow fall on your lap... Roll down the window to continue talking to someone and not have the wipers push a lap full of water into the window...
I went sideways into a snowbank in our first blizzard, just coming down my hill. I avoided driving the car in the snow for the rest of the winter. I would never drive on those tires with kids in the winter, even if there was just a chance of snow. Going up hills was actually not that bad due to the traction control. But going... more »
Temperature-sensitive options on the menu, for example, heated steering wheel and heated wipers button brought to
main screen when temp below 3 degrees C.
