Close Doors via Touch Screen


Now Implemented!


Offer the ability to have an open door close via a touch screen button.


My wife and I are both way beyond our “chicken” years. Yeah old! A constant problem we both have is closing our doors after we’ve entered the car. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a little button on the touch screen that we could push to close our respective doors? We’ve got so many automatic niceties that make things easier (& a few that just cater to our laziness) adding something like this especially for us older folks – and oh yes, for handicapped drivers/passengers and very short people too – would be so thoughtful. And quite original I would think. I could be wrong, but as far as I know, no other automobile manufacturer offers this as standard equipment. I would think something like this could be added without breaking the bank.

Moderator: This is different than door closers that pull the last one inch in as offered by some other luxury cars. There may be safety reasons that make a full door closure more difficult (such as closing it on your leg), but presumably, this can be detected and/or resolved as part of the feature.


Now available on the Model X.

All taxis in Hong Kong and Japan has this feature. MB, BMW, and Bentleys have the soft close that sucks the door in for a firm secure close (less banging the doors).

Minivans do this with the sliding doors. Maybe for the gull wing X model doors?
