You expect him to get out of the car and press the headlights? Weird.
Early adopters are not the same as mass (ish) market buyers. And there's been nowhere for those EA's to go but Tesla. If that should change (and it's not a foregone conclusion), then everything will change.
Which is kind of what we're all hoping for, right?
Early adopters are also less practical and typically have much more money to burn.
The reason why I want a BEV is not having to spend money on gasoline and the potential (this is Tesla after all) lower cost of repair and/or maintenance by not having to purchase a car with every increasing engine and transmission complexity just to meet CAFE requirements.
I'm well aware of that.
Like this preaching.
So what if someone doesn't want to have to make multiple taps on the screen to turn on/off the lights. Every little criticism of the car doesn't have to be defended with with such attitude.
As the sun sets on 2017, how do you like yours so far...or anyone - anyone - on this forum?
Yes, but there could be a simpler way, which was the original complaint, and setting to auto doesn't address that complaint.
Not even that new. My older, pre-AP1 Model S had that feature.
Like what? A headlight knob that pulls out of the dash? Twist it to adjust dimming? What?
That’s the best criticism you can come up with?
Whats up with the conflicting charge port and trunk, that you cant open both from the center screen? (@17:45) Whats the reason? If you can not open the trunk while charging that seems very strange.
Not sure what was going on in the video but current owners have confirmed that this is not the case.
I didn't make the criticism.
How about putting the headlight controls with the windshield wiper icon, the UI is completely reconfigurable. They didn't relegate the wipers to the Quick Controls menu.
I've been a Tesla fan for a decade but I don't think they are infallible.
In the video you click on the charge cable's button to open the charge port. It doesn't open automatically when "the charger handle approaches." That's exactly the same as my 2012 Model S, adding number 5 to the above 4.
It is necessary to have the screen option for opening the charge port when at a non Tesla charging station.
Interior lights turn on when you touch the light.
I recall seeing in one video that pressing the rear corner of charge door will cause it to open (if car is unlocked). Also the app can open the charge door I think...
At least here in Europe that is almost 100% certain to happen because they`ll need to shove EVs down the throat of an awful lot of customers very soon or they´ll face horrendous fines due to their fleet`s co2 values that will make a jump of 20-40% with the new wltp cycle that replaces the "fill in whatever values you want" NEFZ bullshit.
They´ll pay dearly for having waited for so long and thanks to the Diesel scandal no amount of lobbying will save them this time. They profited for decades, this time they will pay. The premium brands will survive this, I´m not so sure about some "less" profitable brands.
I fully expect to be offered BMW/Mercedes/Audi EVs for the same crazy rebates as their normal ICEs as a company car.
I'd be okay with a different UI approach. I'd be against adding back in physical controls for it, with the counter-argument being why add physical controls for something one might occasionally do. I acknowledge that people might occasionally want to modify their headlight settings from auto, but would argue against having a physical manifestation, taking up space, for something that should be a relatively rare occurrence. Having a configurable UI would be awesome, but also increases the complexity and supportability from a development standpoint.
So ‘that’s’ the best criticism you can come up with?
