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

Let off the throttle earlier on "Chill" mode trending idea

When driving mode is set to "Chill", instead of coming at full speed behind a stopped car, a red light, or other, be with Autopilot or FSD, plan the stop ahead, and gradually slow down instead of using full regen at the last moment.

Reasoning behind it: Regen always has losses. It is more effective to coast and gradually stop than keep accelerating and then engage full regen. It also gives a better feel that the car... more »

Passenger seat operation via central screen in Tesla Model 3 trending idea Unverified Translation

During long car journeys on the motorway, the front passenger may fall asleep while the seat is reasonably 'upright'. This can be an uncomfortable position for that person. The driver cannot reposition that passenger seat as the controls are out of reach on the right side of the seat.

Is it possible, via an OTA update, to provide a pop-up menu of the seat on the central screen with next to it touch buttons to change... more »

Safety

Save camera footage for minimum specified time period

It would be a really handy idea of TeslaCam video didn't just erase itself at the start of every trip. It used to just pile up till the storage was full and then stop working till cleaned up. Now, it erases it self at the start of every trip. Nice in theory, but I'm sure that many of us have had occasion to want to go back to an event earlier in the day to check something.

Personally, I had a brick sized piece of asphalt... more »

Safety

Automatically clear the backup camera lens in wet weather

Often, after driving through rainy weather, I will turn the car to back up into my driveway, and I will have zero visibility through my backup camera. I have to run out of the car, wipe it off, and then finish my backing up.

 

Newer Teslas should have a small compressed air source to blast away drops of water and debris when the car is shifted into reverse to clear the camera lense.

Convenience

Open the dashboard box directly from the home screen Unverified Translation

To be able to open the glove box directly, without opening a mnu first.

For example:

- In parking position, open the glove box from the car display, just like the boot lid / front cover.

- While driving via button bar at the top.

Safety

Caution Front Brake Lights

Caution front brake lights work just like the rear brake lights do but they only when your turn signals are on. This lets oncoming traffic see when your going to turn left or right in front of them. This also lets pedestrians know when it is safe to cross the crosswalk letting them know when your going to make your turn. This is my patented idea that I have on my truck and people will step back onto the curb when they... more »

Safety

Vocal warning messages

Warning messages are so small, that unless you have perfect eyesight, there is no way you can read them without taking your eyes off the road.

I suggest a message saying content and which can be stopped by touching message box.

The safest car in the world should not force drivers to take their eyes off the road.

Charging

Extended power travel trailer!

I think it would be really convenient if the EV's could be equipped with a tow package that could tow a luggage style trailer that was equipped with additional batteries and luggage space for long distance travelers. The trailer could be designed to have a wiring harness to plug into a receptacle on the vehicle and a switch or breaker in the vehicle could be switched to use the alternate power source once the vehicles... more »

The famous Tesla Home Charger Network

There are many thousand of home charging points of Tesla drivers around the world. All dedicated only to the owner. Why not making this potential easily available to all Tesla drivers if they need a charge when out at a foreign place without a super or destination charger around. With just the following software extensions, this is easily possible:
