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.


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.

reminder that bikes on top trending idea

I own a 2019 Model 3 and installed the Tesla roof rack.  I frequently put my bike on the rack.  I would love the ability to have my car remind me that a bike is on top when I approach my garage so I don't accidentally drive into it.  You would manually enable Bike-on-roof Mode.  As you approached your home the dash would alert you to remember not to drive into the garage.

Add 'waypoints' for making multiple stops on a single trip trending idea 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 »

Ask Elon / Tesla a Question

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 »

Passive Blindspot Detection Selected

- 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 »

Video recording by honking the horn to set the GPS address Unverified Translation

It would be very desirable that the video recording when honking the horn put the GPS position as the file name. To make a report of a serious traffic violation it is extremely interesting to be able to send the video recordings but you also have to provide the exact place where the violation occurs and it would be perfect if the name of the file included the GPS position, at least in the case of recordings saved when... more »

Car cleaning facilities at charging stations

It would be useful to be able to give the car a clean while waiting. Maybe a long reach vacuum hose for the inside carpets etc. Good way to kill 35 mins. An over head shower for the exterior? Cloths could be purchased via a vending machine or bring your own. Could be great for Tesla to have the vast majority of their cars looking clean and tidy on the road.

Display Both % and Miles Remaining Implemented

There are people that like Coke vs Pepsi. Some wash their legs when they shower and some don't. Is the shoe pink or gray? Some controversies are never resolved.


But, can we all agree to display battery % remaining AND miles remaining at the same time? Then we would all be happy.

Mobile App

Provide app and/or API access to control the charge current

Third parties are coming to market to allow users control of charging at the moment of the best energy rate during the day.

This gives users the ability to save on charging costs and open opportunities to only charge when home Solar panels are providing energy. Smart Charging in general is becoming more important in balancing the grid and the only way today to integrate a Tesla into this mix is by starting and stopping... more »
