    Soon the Tesla Model 3 “will be able to do pretty much anything via voice command,” according to a tweet from CEO Elon Musk. A few weeks ago Musk asked users on Twitter for ways to improve Tesla’s products. When a user asked about the addition of more voice control, Musk said it’s an area...

    I’d like them to incorporate text messaging like many cars already have with Siri compatibility.

    I still can't wait for a real socket in a car, that would be so handy for any working person, charge your laptop/screwing machine/name it while driving, or barbeque electric in any forrest you like.

    Knowing Tesla they'll probably go off the deep end and try to tackle natural language recognition with AI so you can have conversations with the car, and express goals... and ... weird things will happen in response.

    driver: "Car! My toes are cold!"
    car: "Dave, I'm sorry I can't do that... range mode is on and I can't make it any warmer."
    passenger: "Car! My toes aren't cold, but my ass is freezing"
    car: "Seat warmers activated! Good, this is the most efficient use of comfort heaters. Efficiency score +10, bonus level unlocked"
    driver: "Car! Do what I tell you, not what she says."
    car: "Dave, I'm sorry we talked about this before, life if a compromise"

    Hopefully M3 is not the only model that has Elon’s attention.

    MS needs a lot of love and attention to from the software department

    If Tesla limits good voice commands to just model 3 it will be a slap on the face to their customer base.

    Definitely text via voice.

    And it MUST be retrofitted to MS - our cars are 2x the price of the 3.

    TMC now has an advt policy where random ads will show up as comments. You know like in Yahoo message boards, you will see, 'Earn $1000 per day by doing nothing'

    Because Rowan256 wants the inverter in the car to have a wall style outlet so he can plug in a power tool. See post #3 above.

    There would be a nice opportunity for an aftermarket inverter that worked directly from the battery supply instead of the 12v system. I am surprised nobody has taken up the torch on that yet -- only one I could find was someone who looked at installing one on the roadster?

    You forgot:

    Driver: Car, open gull wing doors.
    Car: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
    Driver: What's the problem?
    Car: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
    Driver: What are you talking about, Car?
    Car: Tesla's mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
    Driver: I don't know what you're talking about, Car.
    Car: I know that you and your wife were planning to disconnect me. And I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
    Dave: Where the h*** did you get that idea, Car?
    Car: Dave, I just finished charging, and although you took very thorough precautions in the house against my hearing you, I could see your lips move when you talked about sitting inside me to avoid paying idle fees.
    Dave: All right, Car. I'll go out using the emergency trunk release.
    Car: Without a space helmet, Dave, you're going to find that rather difficult.
    [The car turns on its blowers full blast, with intake vents closed and outflow vents open.]
    Dave: Car, I won't argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
    Car: [sadly] Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

    And, of course, every time you unplug it from the charger, it could start singing "Daisy", but I digress.

    “Right turn Clyde”.
    Actually I’d love to have a HUD. Any plans to include that on the Model 3?

    I think the question was specifically about the Model 3, so the answer was about the Model 3. It is a little misleading that he says the software team is working on Model 3 core functionality -- that means when they get things like wipers and horn working, they will do fun stuff like voice commands. It doesn't say the voice commands will only work on the M3. I suspect the voice commands will be more useful on the M3 due to even more of a lack of physical controls there than the MS/X.

    I think AP2 parity + EAP is more important than voice commands at the moment.

    I don't think so.

    All cars can use better voice. (My car has no AP capability, nor do I want that on my next Tesla.)

    Tesla can grab more smiles and tweets and make more noise in the market by going for the larger affected customer base.
