Welcome to the Tesla Ideas Community.

Most cars depreciate right off the lot, stuck with the features that were frozen in time months or years ago. A Tesla, however, keeps improving after ownership, with over-the-air updates that bring new features to existing vehicles. This community is designed to collect ideas from Tesla owners and prioritize the best ones. You can submit ideas, vote on existing ideas, or add comments.

To submit an idea, please click the Submit New Idea button at the top of the navigation sidebar. You will then be asked to add a title and choose a campaign for the new idea. You will also have the option to add tags to the idea. To vote on an idea, simply click the up or down arrows to the right of the idea title/description. And to add a comment, click in the box below the idea.

RV powered by Tesla? trending idea

Ever since you came out with the Tesla Semi I have been thinking about what it would be like if RVs could be powered by Tesla. While I am not an engineer I was a producer for over 20 years and I would like the opportunity to "produce" this idea and coordinate between Tesla and RV coach builders to design a better way to "RV". You may already be working on this but I thought hey why not give it a shot and reach out. Thank... more »

Touchscreen

Avatar screen hold trending idea

I noticed that the avatar screen provides quite a good rear view if you manually rotate the screen (see pic). Unfortunately the view is not fixed and returns after a few seconds to the regular forward view. For better situational awareness it would be great to allow the driver to hold the rear view in place without keeping your finger on the screen. Should be an easy option to implement and improve overall safety.

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 »

Navigation voice volume needs "Save"

I have a 2018 Model S. I like to keep the Navigation voice at the lowest setting possible. Whenever I'm listening to an audio source, whether radio, Tune-in or other, if I increase the volume while the Nav voice happens to be providing a command, the Nav volume is also raised. I then have to press the "settings" gear wheel on Nav to reset the voice assist to its lowest level ONCE AGAIN! Hrumpf! Can't a "Save" feature... more »

Add 'waypoints' for making multiple stops on a single trip Selected

When traveling longer distances or when your battery is lower it would be nice to enter all of the destinations you need to stop so the navigation can tell you if/where you need to charge during this trip. The function of this would act just like google maps, you could enter all your destination points in the order you need to stop at them, with the added function of routing you to chargers if needed, just like the current... more »

Virtual rear-view mirror on Touchscreen

The Model Y visibility out of the rear window is poor. Also if you have a lot of cargo stacked in the rear, blocking the window, the rear-view mirror is useless. In my Toyota RAV 4 and my Chevy Bolt there is an option to display the backup camera in the rear-view mirror for situations where the rear window is blocked. For the Model Y, how about adding an option to display the rear-camera in part of the touchscreen (for... more »

automatic frunk opening (no app, no car display required)

it has always annoyed me, now with a little baby on my arm it annoys me even more

to get access to the frunk, e.g. with full hands in front of the supermarket, i either have to operate the tesla app or climb into the interior and open the frunk on the display. it's really annoying!

prerequisite:

microphone/sonic sensor in the interior

idea:

if i e.g. knock 3 times on a window and at the same time i am connected with... more »

Secondary function for right steering wheel button

This mostly pertains to the model 3 but could be for other models.

Idea: Add more functions to the right steering wheel button. When not in autopilot, it's useless. Add a setting to be able to choose what it controls. Primarily, I would like it to control AC. With the model 3 it's not very safe having to look on the screen where to touch and slide. Making it a steering wheel button could be safer and more convenient.... more »

blind spot monitoring

The upper three inches or so of left hand panel of the touch screen contains miles/hour, speed limit, and range. Below that is the diagram of the Tesla showing nearby traffic conditions. If the top three inches of this panel were moved to the bottom, and the bottom portion moved to the top, then the traffic conditions and especially the red blind spot warning display would be visible in the driver's peripheral vision—THE... more »

Passenger seat operation via central screen in Tesla Model 3 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 »
