A dead battery is the worst. Once Tesla designs the new inverters how about adding the ability to bump charge a Tesla with a Tesla so you can get to a nearby charger? Add an S.O.S. button to inform nearby owners you need a bump and offer supercharger credits for being a Good Samaritan. 5% might just save someone hours of hassle and hundreds of dollars.
Create a charging pad Tesla owners could install on their garage floor. When you park your Tesla on your garage the battery starts charging automatically ;)
Obs.: this would be an optional device.
I approach my car from the rear at home, and I have to walk to the front and open the door to get it to unlock the charging cable. It should detect that I am near and unlock the cable.
This is why I would... more »
The idea would be to simply suggest which stall is the best stall for you. Tesla... more »
-remove your car from the queue if you leave a geofenced area
-your Tesla won't charge until it's your turn (can't jump the queue).
-tells you which stall to use for optimal performance
-holds your place in line If you are on a planned route
-notifies you when your car is almost ready so you can go do other things while... more »
I have run into quite a few people who use Superchargers instead of charging at home. I understand that in some cases Supercharging may be necessary, such as for people who live in a condo type building and have no way to install a charger. Having said that, there are plenty of people... more »
Please consider extending the 6 month expiration for free supercharging miles. Since February and our stay-at-home orders, I've hardly driven my new car. I would love to be able to use my miles once the world opens up again.
Sometimes, we simply want to top up for free using exactly the amount of solar that the smart inverter is generating - "Follow the sun charging". In this way, use all the free energy, but don't burden the grid either - just a nice little top up.
Idea can be extended to PowerWall stored energy too.
Third party chargers in Tesla map Selected
Can third party and public chargers be integrated into maps. Both DC and AC chargers. In a country like Australia this is not only a convenience but a necessity.
It's soemtimes easy to forget to plug-in your EV at the end of the day. It would be great if the mobile app could notify you if your Tesla is still unplugged after a certain pre-defined time.
Sophisticated Charge Timing Implemented
A setting to allow you to configure when you want the car to finish charging at a selected level (ex. so the battery temp is optimal in the morning before driving to work). Could also be used in cold climates to ensure battery is warm for a longer period of time.
