Use the Air Suspension to jack up the car and make it easy to replace a tire. Some type of jack stand would be included.
The car could help with changing a tire in step by step way, removing the need for an expensive and heavy car jack.
The Model S or X can already be equipped with air suspension. If you would end up needing to replace a tire, a jacking wizard should appear that combines the manual and performs certain steps while monitoring for changes in tilt angle of the car. Steps:
Most if not all of this functionality could be delivered over the air (excluding approved blocks)
Tesla already differentiates itself in efficiency and weight savings are a big part of that. Also, a wizard on the touchscreen would fit with Tesla’s “computer on wheels” image.
One caveat I understand could be that if the tire already was completely flat before the procedure, there might not be enough ground clearance to put it on high enough supports. Still, I’d like to post this, since there may be ways to solve this and this would be a great feature to have.
Also, the range of travel of the suspension might not be enough for this feature to entirely lift the tire. I haven’t tested this.
