Tesla will automate the temperature of the steering wheel in an upcoming update… Read More
Good idea would be temp sensors added to the headlight assembly where you could set on/off and at what temp to heat or defrost. Tweet this suggestion to #Tesla and #ElonMusk maybe.Good change! The heat is sometimes too hot for the steering wheel and sometimes quite low. Strange. Maybe there is already a system capable of adapting the heat based on the interior temp.?
What would be extremely valuable and innovative would be a heating system for headlights (like the one for the windshield wipers).
Cars left outside at night in mountain areas are mostly iced, frozen in the morning and we systematically have to remove ice on the glass during several minutes outside while temp is really cold -5 to -10°C or less (with wind blowing... awful!
In the past, the heat of the lamps was enough to help ice smelting but with led, this is now impossible. Driving with iced headlights glasses is dangerous for other and the driver.
When you live in the mountain area, having a heating steering wheel is not an option but mandatory when you have a Tesla. Why? gloves cannot help when touching the screen!As an early MY owner, I wonder if it's possible to retrofit a heated steering wheel into my 2020 car. I actually don't think I need a heated steering wheel (I've never had one) but I didn't miss heated seats until I had them either.
