Reduce unnecessary brake light activation trending idea

After seeing several videos of angry motorbike riders taking out their frustration on Teslas, I wonder if part of the reason is the activation of brake lights whenever the accelerator pedal is released.

As a lifelong manual driver I have always been careful to change down rather than brake to avoid annoying the drivers behind. I find it most embarrassing that, in my Tesla, I am constantly flashing my brake lights even... more »

Autopilot

Option to disable TACC use "dumb" cruise control instead. trending idea

I would like to have the option to disable TACC and use "dumb" cruise control instead.

I have experienced horrible ghost breakings. Suddenly middle of an empty road the car slammed brakes for 1 second and continued forwards. There was absolutely no reason for this breaking. If a car would have followed me it would have caused a rear-end collision.

Tesla give us the option to go with "dumb" cruise control, please.

Charging

Minimum charge limit for safety reasons trending idea

Sometimes, after enjoying riding our Model 3, we connect the car to our charger at home and we have only 10% of battery charge left. This 10% of battery charge is not enough to drive to the nearest hospital or useful for any other kind of emergency (friends/parents in need, zombie attack). Because I have set Scheduled Departure at 8 a.m. the car will not be charged all evening and most of the night.

This is why I would... more »

Notify when phone is left on charger pad trending idea

Have a notification that lets you know you left your phone on the charger pad when you leave close the door and leave the vehicle. This becomes important when your phone is the key and you depend on it to automatically lock when you leave the vehicle. So many times I have to run back to car to get my phone.

Safety

Brakes and Always Leave and Out trending idea

Brake lights seem to be an issue in some Tesla accidents. The Tesla is rear ended.

Regenerative braking in my Model Y works very similarly to the way I used to brake in my other vehicles - with one huge exception: no brake lights going on. (My son almost drove into a car that was parked 2 feet from the curb in an English town. I was being the typical American dad-passenger and watching and it fooled me too.

Convenience

Truck Bed Work Bench trending idea

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 »

Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection Selected trending idea

- When AutoPilot is not activated, and turn signal is activated make a chime or sound play to alert driver to someone existing in blind spot. Similar to the mirror light blind spot functions other cars have. Instead of just a last second avoidance feature or visual on the screen which is not very safe to be looking at whilst driving.
- Could make another kind of "clicking" sound to passively let the driver know someone... more »

Mobile Battery

Is there or can the Tesla team create a mobile battery for the Tesla, like gas vehicles have gas cans for times they get in a rough situation to get mobile fuel, it would be amazing to have a mobile rolling suitcase type battery pack (that may even plug into a 110 power source) that could be easily removed from the vehicle for convenience as well as safety? Even if it can only add 20+ miles to the vehicle. I don't currently... more »

Open charging port when parked in the garage

I plug my car to the charger every time it's in the garage.

I'd like my car to automatically open its charging port whenever I step out of the car while parked inside my garage.

Beside not having to open the port manually, the noise made by the opening of the charger port would serves as a reminder to plug the car to the charger.

Autopilot

Cruise Control at Current Speed

When setting the cruise control, it always locks at "current speed or map indicated, whichever is faster".

There are many places in my area, where it either has inaccurate map date, or it's simple not safe to drive at the indicated speeds.

When activating the cruise control at lower speeds, this means the car starts accelerating, until I can reduce speed on the scroll wheel - every single time.

It would be nice to... more »

Autopilot

Nav on Autopilot earlier indicators

When exiting a highway using Nav on Autopilot, the car activates the indicators only moments before taking an exit. This gives drivers behind little warning and does not inspire confidence that the system will take the exit. A human driver would start indicating a few hundred meters before the exit. Nav on Autopilot should do likewise.
