    Not that I’ve heard of, but these are the types of things we can expect to see down the road.
    That’s one of the huge advantages of having a car like this. !!!

    You should not expect to see anything like this down the road. Is it possible? Sure, it's a computer, it could be programmed to support that. Is it likely to happen? Wouldn't count on it.

    Disagree. I would never have counted on Easter Eggs either...................but Elon is Elon. Space X liftoff is definitely a possibility! It would bring a huge smile to my face every time I got inside the car. :D

    The sky is the limit with what we could see for future surprises and features.
    I think what we’ve seen is only if not barely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to new additions to the car. :)

    I have a Volt and would like nothing more than to turn off the goofy startup and shutdown sounds. YMMV, I guess. :rolleyes:

    I tried out a 2018 volt for a few months.
    I agree with the start up sounds, not a fan either. Not a bad car though. Great on mileage.

    I was able to turn off those sounds in my 2012 volt. Still had to sit through the light show though.

    Next thing you know someone will want to pipe in engine noises, like the BMW i8 does, or that new Jaguar. No thanks, at least personally.
