I'm a teen from Canada and I've been a Tesla fan for several years. I have a muscular condition that in short confines me to an electric wheelchair permanently. Now that I have the option to get my driver's license, I'm faced with a unique problem. The only available vehicles that are able to be converted to accommodate an electric wheelchair are minivans (yuck) and large vans such as Sprinters and Transits (seriously?). I could get a pickup, but meh. As a self-respecting and sane teen, these options are definitely off the table. But the Model X is a different story.
I will be able to drive, but I will require a joystick and button control as opposed to a steering wheel and pedal system. I figured that since Teslas are completely computerized, they would be easier to tie into a joystick control, not unlike controlling the car with a Xbox controller. I think it would be best to have me sitting in place of the front passenger seat for two reasons. First of all, I would be able to parallel-park by a sidewalk downtown and get out of the car onto the sidewalk as opposed to driving out into traffic. That would not end well, I would assure you. Second of all, if I had one set of controls specifically made for me on the passenger side of the car, the driver's side would still function as designed and would be able to be driven by a normal human. Also, because I will not be able to reach the huge touch screen in the center of the cabin, I have two options. One option would be to have a secondary display in front of me on the passenger dashboard, ideally the screen from a Model 3. Another option, which might be easier to do but not would not work as well would be to have a touchpad and keyboard beside the joystick. This may not work as well. On top of all this, I was thinking of entering the car via a small lift (see https://www.atconversions.com/). This would require a hydraulic system that would take the place of the rightmost second-row seat.
Obviously, Teslas are ideal for my situation. Autopilot would help me out if my arm tired out, the camera array would help me to see what I can't b/c of low neck range-of-motion, and autopark would help me with precision stuff (although I consider myself a pretty awesome wheelchair driver - just sayin').
I've tried to contact Elon thru Twitter and I've tried to connect to all of the VPs on LinkedIn. None of these have succeeded. I don't know what I'm going to do... Please leave ideas, comments or other stuff below - & if you're good Tesla people like I am, please make some noise about this on your social media channel of choice.
