This has been an ongoing issue now for months. Light years beyond my last car.
That said, a few things I think would add a lot of benefit. You guys recommend a specific percentage for extended battery life. If I want to open the trunk I have to open the app, tap controls, then open the trunk. Minor, but if I use the trunk far more than the frunk, it gets frustrating.
I have a detached garage. Currently I have to move the router, walk to the car and get in, check it I may end up needing to get an extender, but the app would save me a lot of headache if it just exposed this data.
Tesla keeps improving my driving and car management experience regularly, through this app. Being able to adjust and readjust the climate remotely from my phone, including individual seat heaters, defrost, cabin temp, has been great this winter. Being able to remotely open the two trunks and charging port, flash lights and horn, etc. Being able to schedule a service appt, control the charging sched, map out nearest superchargers, and find pretty precisely where my car is at the exact moment, is really convenient. Thanks, Tesla!
Microsoft’s New Devices, Tesla’s ‘Smart Summon’, and More

It took efforts from a few Tesla enthusiasts in Morocco to convince the palace hotel to make the decision. The most popular stories on CleanTechnica this past week were led by a McDonald's story for the first time or perhaps second — I remember a very popular McDonald's story here in The second and third most popular stories were both about total cost of ownership comparisons — between the Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Camry and then the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Camry.
Next in line were videos of Tesla Smart Summon which went a bit viral on what the kids call "the Internet" and a couple of pieces on how early concerns about the Model 3 and Gigafactory 3 became irrelevant.

With no public announcement or fanfare, Tesla has acquired Hibar Systems of Toronto, a company that specializes in advanced battery manufacturing techniques. We talked at length about it years ago at a CleanTechnica conference in Berlin. The night the Tesla Model 3 was first shown to the public, Kyle Field and I were on the test track — only sharing the road and driveway with a few Tesla employees, a black matte Tesla Model 3 prototype, a silver Tesla Model 3 prototype, and a couple of other Teslas.

In the 20 minute but not the 10 minute abridged video I shared of that extremely lucky test track experience, I didn't interrupt the fun sounds of the test track fog shooters and the smoothly rolling Teslas very much, but while talking with a Tesla employee near the beginning I laughed a bit out of my awe for the beautiful, super fresh Model 3 and what it would mean for the auto industry.
I was picturing elite auto giants in the board room of BMW and Audi sobbing. The Model 3 is the standout, Zen-of-zero-emissions electric vehicle that is meeting peoples hopes and wishes straight on. Even though I don't have a Model 3, I'd agree with anyone singing Model 3 praises. I have ridden in one many times, and I've previously written about the expansive back seat experience in a Tesla Shuttle. The praise the Model 3 gets is well deserved.

No, this is not a trick — I'm serious. What motivates people to key a Tesla? Why all the hate? You may have seen the video on Twitter and Facebook of the woman, who just walked up and keyed the vehicle. More range! How much range is enough?
All we know at this point is that car buyers want more. There's more, though. I am writing this because I want to address something I've seen in my Twitter feed all too often. Tesla end-of-quarter rush is unavoidable, inevitable, inescapable, necessary, unescapable, needed.
We all hate Tesla's end-of-quarter delivery hell. It is the price Tesla pays for its direct sales model.
Other companies also try to score some extra sales at the end of a period, but no one gets into a frenzy like Tesla. One day, we will all pass on. One day, we will all be just a memory -- a moment that someone else will look back on. For those of us left behind, we hurt.
