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…

Drive-Thru Mode Selected

When you're indulging in that uniquely (let's face it) American pastime 🍔 of eating in your car, it would be great if your Tesla knew that you were in a drive-thru. Most importantly, when in this mode, the car chimes would just chill out and stop bugging me while I'm flustered trying to interrogate everyone in the car for their order.

Model 3 switch to Standard mode when accelerating in Chill mode

Garage Mode Selected

Have the car auto automatically select "Garage Mode" when the car detects that you are in the garage. Just like Home link knows you're home. This mode leaves the car unlocked so that you can come back whenever to get something inside, load golf bags, even charge without having to get a key to get into your own car in your garage.

Batmobile Mode (Glass transparent to opaque)

When cars are parked I think this would be a cool option, avoiding others to see missing itens on the interior of the vehicle. (It can also be applied to the headlight of Tesla cars… Batmobile kind of feature… rsrsrs). This could also allow passengers to set the transparency of the wind shield… working as virtual blind.

improved camping mode experience

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 »
