Risk here is 'maybe' an unpopular take so pls remember it's just an opinion...
- Driving a Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE for a couple days and realizing that although I mildly dislike having soooo many buttons my big takeaway is that the UI is actually much friendlier than my Model Y
- I realized that whenever I need to access something in my Tesla I experience a fleeting anxiety as to a) where to find it at all and/or b) have they moved it again?
- Tesla warning beeps are guaranteed to shock, I mean they could send a few volts through the steering wheel and it would probably be more pleasant. Learn from the competition with those semi-muted tones.
- Voice recognition needs to be improved. Where it works perfectly in the Toyota, my Tesla relatively often has problems with my transatlantic accent.
- Selecting audio is exponentially easier on the Toyota. Yes, having Tesla audio that automatically mutes when you open the door is nice, but does it really compensate for the other complications?
- Toyota includes a WiFi hotspot, it's not difficult.
- Heads-Up display is just awesome; shame it's on a much cheaper Toyota and not available on Tesla.
I've been driving Tesla for 12 years now and I don't plan to switch away from full electric; but experience from a couple days driving tells me that Tesla needs to improve their UI and feature set. As other auto manufacturers actually start to (slowly) move to full electric and have some sort of charging infrastructure, Tesla will need to up their game.
