Would love to see Tesla succeed. Ideas for Model Y or other model updates to make them winners and game-changers? Here are 3 of mine:
1. Include a camping package. Given that people like sleeping or camping in their Tesla since they're climate controlled, why not capitalize on that by including some cool modular stuff for comfort and privacy in a camping package? Big appeal there.
2. Practicality and Safety. As reviewers and practical-minded people dig deeper, many start realizing that the big appeal of fast acceleration needs to be matched by excellent stopping distances and safety in general. Braking is a tough nut to crack for heavy cars, but can be done. There are other manufacturers that do it (and the Model 3 performance is the Tesla stand-out on this.)
3. Related to 2: Have alternatives to the screen for as many basic controls as possible. It really is a safety issue in various situations to have to fuss with the screen. And it can be stressful even when it's not a safety issue. And of course all hail the folks who get the voice commands and recognition seriously dialed in so that this becomes much, much less of an issue (though off-screen controls will still make tremendous sense for some of the basics.)
Despite its many challenges, Tesla is on mission and changing the world. Mix in some more creative practicality going forward and maybe Tesla as a company will accelerate as fast as its cars?
