Tesla Motors Inc CEO Hogs Limelight Again, Tweets Fans Suggestion Letter

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk acknowledged a full-page ad given by a New York couple in a local Silicon Valley Newspaper on Sunday. Musk said that he is determined to execute many of the changes suggested by this couple.

Suggestions for Tesla

Header of the advertisement was “Automotive visionary, open letter to Elon Musk.” The couple thanked the company for making such a great American car, which is fun, comfortable and has an advanced reliability into a phenomenal driving experience. However, the recommendations in the letter that the caught attention of Musk, and he said that changes suggested would soon feature in the car.

Hedge Fund Launches Jump Despite Equity Market Declines

Last year was a bumper year for hedge fund launches. According to a Hedge Fund Research report released towards the end of March, 614 new funds hit the market in 2021. That was the highest number of launches since 2017, when a record 735 new hedge funds were rolled out to investors. What’s interesting about Read More

Some of the modifications that this couple suggested to the company are adjusting cup-holder in the front, center console redesign and introduce sensors that should warn the drivers when the objects are close to the car.  To enhance the safety of the car, the couple suggested blind spot monitors and cross traffic monitors other than sensors to indicate the proximity of the object. Also, the larger touch interface is suggested in the letter for answering the calls to avoid disconnecting the calls, when the driver fails to touch the right spot.

Couple claims that they are very satisfied Tesla owners from Southhold, New York and asked the company to ramp up its marketing strategy a bit. The letter read that people are fascinated by the Tesla cars owned by both husband and wife. They said, “Promotion of your cars to the general public could only have a positive effect, creating many additional enthusiastic Tesla owners.”

Musk determined to make changes

The CEO has taken the suggestions positively and looks keen to include some of those in the car. Elon Musk tweeted the picture of this letter to around 860,000 followers.  As of now, Tesla is quite about the changes that it will filter from the letter and wish to make include them in the car.

Tesla fans and customers applauded the response of Musk after he posted the letter on the Twitter. Although few might be against the vision and strategies of Musk, it does not stop him from being a unique CEO. Such gestures have hardly been seen from a CEO of an automobile or any other company. There are just handfuls of auto companies who listen to the suggestions made by their customers.

  1. You are hilarious with your ignorant hypocritical whining.

    The fact is you are a hypocrite, expecting others to give links when liars like you don’t give links.

    You’re throwing a hissy fit because I’m posting facts that goes against your agenda.

    If you weren’t so lazy to do research, you wouldn’t be so ignorant.

    The facts are you are ignorant, troll, liar, shill, spammer, hypocrite, etc…

  2. All I’m asking are links to facts that say the UMCs are still a problem, was a botched recall. Instead, you resort to name-calling.

    Tesla went from zero to huge growth and popularity in the tech community in a quick hurry and doesn’t look like an epic fail to me. Please explain why it is an epic fail. With links to facts instead of baseless opinions.

  3. You are a liar that can’t handle the truth. You are having a hissy fit.

    The fact is that Tesla’s Universal Mobile Chargers are still a fire hazard; they are still overheating, melting and failing.

    Tesla botched the recall. The recall was insufficient and many people still have not received recall compliant adapters.

    The fact is that pre-recall and post-recall adapters are still overheating, melting and failing. They still are a fire hazard.

    Tesla has been an epic fail. The facts that I already posted, prove that safety is not a top priority for Tesla. Tesla is following in similar footsteps as Ford Pinto.

  4. Cry me a river.

    The UMC problem has already been resolved with Tesla sending out replacement UMC connectors a few months back and firmware changes to drop the current down if it detects fluctuations in power delivery. Please explain why it’s still a fire hazard.

    Tesla does take safety seriously. Please provide examples where it did not.

  5. I understand after living 20 years in Europe driving Renault, Ibiza and a BMW there is little to be excited about with cars in Europe. I was glad to get back to the US and drive my Cadi but I envy people that have a Tesla. What I do not understand is when you pay about $10 a Gallon for gas what will keep people from buying the Model X like hot cakes. I think it might help to think more about how much you really will save per year if you drove one in Europe. I personally would be saving about 8k per year. 5 years that is 40k.

  6. Here in Europe nobody quite understands the Tesla hype. Rarely would anybody here buy an American car – those are usually not exactly on par with what we build in Germany or can get from Japan.
    And hardly would anybody, who is not into flashy and shiny bling-bling things, buy an ipad-on-wheels.

    In my opinion Tesla lacks the experience of real car manufacturers.
    And their product misses the point. Most electrical energy is simply not produced from renewables but the old , usually dirty way. Whether I burn coal in a power plant to produce electricity or fuel in my combustion engine does not make so much of a difference environment-wise.

    IMHO : Overvalued company with no future. Better Place – The Sequel.

  7. Tesla needs to make safety a top priority. Tesla’s UMCs are still a fire hazard, they are still overheating, melting and failing. Nearly all of the Tesla model S. were recalled for UMCs that were poorly designed, poorly manufactured and had poor quality control. The recall did not address all of the problems with the UMC designs, that’s why Tesla’s Universal Mobile Chargers are still a fire hazard.

  8. Blind spot monitors, cross-traffic monitor, and sound sensors?

    I have that in my 2013 Ford Escape. C’mon Tesla, I’m shocked that your 80K+ “tech” car didn’t include that.
