What ideas do you have for tesla?

What ideas do you have for tesla?

I am hoping Tesla incorporates (if they haven't yet) these ideas in their new cars.
What do you want to see from tesla?

Custamizable interior lights/floorboards
Customizable heads-up display on windshield
Customizable sounds (turn signal, etc)
Voice welcoming/acknowledgement through fingerprint recognition in steering wheel
Heated or A/C seats
4G
Customizable dashboard/blind spot monitors
Transition Lenses on the windshield
Dash camera
Friend follower-tesla cars can recognize each other/who is driving and you can link up if you are trying to meet somewhere/follow each other somewhere w/o getting lost in traffic
Consciousness recognition-actively tries to get you to respond and calls for help when you don't, autopilot to the side of the road if you experience a seizure or fall asleep etc
Silent alarm-if you get attacked next to your car, GPS can follow your key fab to lead to you if you get abducted (phone app?)

What else are you hoping to see?
Suicide doors
Hatchback
Towing capacity (Tesla model Y=truck=S3XY)

>>> "I really hope next generation Tesla electric car will include air turbine. It can help the car go far more than before."

Just off the top of my head I can think of at least 4 different ways (I mean, I could probably think of, perhaps, a dozen if I really put some brain to it but, yeah, 4 different ways right off the top of my head) Tesla could improve their range with just a few simple optimizations and/or tweaks of their existing technology and NONE of them involve the use of an "air turbine", mini 2-cycle motor, sails or any of the other equally ludicrous and ultimately meritless suggestions I've seen bantered about on these and other forums.

>>> "Hi Tesla , I think helping people transform their love car into an EV will be great. Because so many people got the old classic car."

There are numerous independents scattered all over the world who'll be able to help you with that.

In fact, if you merely perform a simple internet search for something as basic as "EV conversions", you'll get several returns on your query, several of which will probably be in your area...Good luck!

As a model X owner, I don't really like the fact that it's impossible to install a top carrier conveniently. You know, something like https://theguidr.com/best-car-top-carrier-reviews/ . Definitely isn't a major issue and there is enough luggage space already but in some situation, top carrier is a really convenient thing and I'd like to use it.

Speaking of storage options....
If Tesla adopts the Model 3’s clean, minimalist interior for S and X, I suggest they leverage it by adding two driver’s side compartments, similar to the glove compartment on the passenger side. Put one on each side of the steering wheel shaft, with an option for one or both to be unlocked with a PIN.

The sleek minimalist look would still be uninterrupted, but it would add a lot of value for someone like me. I like to keep separate things in separate compartments so access is quick and predictable, without rummaging through a center console that also gets used for trash. Should not cost that much either.

I noticed a competior has a flashlight torch in the door.
I like that it charges on the go.
But, I think it also double as a USB battery for phones and other devices.
I would love to always have a fully charged USB battery for my electronic devices that is also happens to be a flashlight.

Also, having a model 3 in the Arizona summer, it would nice to set a max interior temp to something like 90 degrees. I forgot to break out my phone to turn on the A/C and got into my car of 120 degrees a few days ago.

I think it would require less battery to keep the interior temp at 90 degrees while I'm away from the car.
Plus, it would be faster to lower the interior temp of the car once I am in the car.

Further, I'm thinking of something like a smart thermostat of a house, then I can set the comfort temperatures for winter/summer while away from/in the car.

Then, I shouldn't have to fiddle with the A/C temp controls unless I want to deviate from the A/C comfort settings.
Would be nice if these comfort settings were part of the driver's profile also.

"I think it would require less battery to keep the interior temp at 90 degrees while I'm away from the car."

Nah, that is like saying you should keep your oven set to 150 because it would require less energy when you need to use it. That's just not how physics works.

I still think it is a great idea though.

I am thinking of the MY specifically, but I would like to see:

a 12V outlet in the trunk area for my powered cooler (I must travel with meds).

Sorry, hit the wrong key in the message above and it submitted. Starting over . . .

I am thinking of the Model Y specifically, and I would like to see:

- a 12V outlet in the trunk area for my powered cooler (I must travel with meds).
- a trailer hitch (didn't see on the last I looked) to tow a small teardrop trailer.
- integrated (no USB drive) dash cam/sentry recording . . . the crooks will soon get wise to the USB and just take it too!

So I have been thinking about ways to charge a battery using the movement of the vehicle. At first I was thinking about wind turbines that turn and put pistons in motion that compress air into a tesla turbine which charges the battery.
After some reading it seems that the wind resistance will cause to much drag to be effciant.
So I though about if the back wheels are powered to push the vehicles what if the front wheels turned the pistons which push air onto a tesla turbine.
I would of thought it would be less drag and possible overcome the energy input.
People's thoughts on this?
I feel like many small vertical wind turbines wouldn't cause as much drag as a few big ones.
Like the tree that was created for the front garden. Many small leafs rotating is found to produce more power then one big propella.
And the less area taken by propella the less drag.

Back wheels are powered by the battery,
The passive turn of the front wheels turn a rotary screw compressor, the compressed air goes through to a tesla turbine.
The turbine charges the battery.

dont start with the perpetual motion thing again

andy.connor.e | 26 agosto 2019

Any amount of resistance you put on the car that is used to produce electrical energy will be completely negated by the additional energy required to overcome the resistance. Regenerative braking is all you can do. You cannot use battery power to sustain a speed and extract more energy from your momentum than what you are putting in to maintain it.

If you want a more efficient vehicle, make it smaller, make it lighter.
