Physical Sunroof Button



As nice as the touch screen idea is, there are some features that just work better – more intuitively – when controlled with a good old fashioned button. Those are for example the windows (done in the TESLA) and also the sun roof! I would like not to have to take my eyes off the street in order to open or close the sun roof – as cool and nifty that touch screen sliding feature might appear at first sight. A button somewhere in the middle overhead, as is common in many cars, would be extremely helpful. After all: never underestimate the power of your motor memory…


I don’t know of a car with a sun roof that doesn’t have this.

You could program your right-hand steering wheel roller to do exactly that.
Hello Volker,

yes, I know that I could do that. But that would mean that I lose the option of using that roller for other functions (quickly). But I'll try and see if I need the other functions at all in "real life"... It might be an option
I like looking at the road. A sunroof button would allow doing that, when the preference is to drive. This would help Tesla sell to both drivers and the riders it aspires to. The scroll wheels function poorly. They already have assigned purposes, and shouldn't be used for tasks that slow the rest down. That, and they often require excess scrolling to execute changes, like 'Volume'. A button would be much more discreet, if we're talking about function.
