Fan Speed Slider



Offer a slider to set the fan speed.


Currently in V9 (2019.12.1.2), to change fan speed, you must tap the HVAC button, followed by repeated taps on the +/- buttons to set your desired fan speed. This is especially true for the Model 3, as Model S/X owners at least an option to customize their scroll wheel behaviors.

Since temperature and volume are easily adjustable via sliders with only a single swipe, it would make sense to do the same with fan speed. Less menus, less taps, more safe/convenient!

This could be implemented by changing the behavior of the already existing HVAC button. Currently, holding the button turns the fan off – this could be changed so that when you hold the button it would bring up the slider instead. Hold + swiping left would then turn off the fans.

Moderator: Slider removed in v9 per other requests: https://teslatap.com/questions/fan-speed-buttons/

Edit: In response to moderator comment – I hope you don’t mean to invalidate this request because of a previous request. That request originated in 2014, before the Model 3 came out and before even V8 came out. The UI design was significantly different and it might have made more sense back then. Also the request you linked was hoping for “just one tap and this ramps up to the desired speed.” The current design language does not do even this, as it still requires multiple taps to reach your desired speed.

This feature makes much more sense to mE

As it stands we can vary the temperature with a swiping motion so it makes sense to do the same thing with the fan

Less driver distractibility
