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...

Sleep Mode for the Display

the display should have a "sleep" mode for those times when it just intrudes, like an unwanted third person in the car. In sleep mode you'd get just a dark screen with the speed subtly displayed in the upper left corner. A tap or a trigger (an alert from the car of any kind) would bring back the display.

While camping in Utah without service, the camping mode had some deficiencies. Ideas for optimizing - 1. Allow remote control via Tesla app in phone without Requirement of LTE. 2. Allow entry of specific parameters to optimize comfort while conserving sufficient battery to reach nearest charger. Essentially set a battery sapping floor and then indicate a preferred temp and expected duration of climate control (ie I... more »

Setting to turn off (or adjust) electronically-dimmed mirrors

The auto dimmed mirrors on the model 3 are too dark, especially if you have tinted windows it makes the mirrors useless and the car is difficult to drive at night. A setting to disable the auto-dimming mirrors would work, or a slider where we can adjust how much they dim. Currently they do not rely on the brightness of headlights behind the vehicle, they simply default to max dimming which is too dark without tint and... more »

Sheldon Cooper Mode

If enabled, the car would auto adjust acoustic sweet spot of the stereo system based on # of occupants & where they sitting. I.e. if car only detects 1 person (the driver), the spot would move to the middle of driver seat.
