Inside Handle Bars

258

Description

The Model S does not offer handle bars over the doors. These handles are not only a means to offer some support to a passenger during a sporty ride, but also are essential for elderly or handicapped people to exit the vehicle comfortable and gracefully.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Many other cars have them as standard items.

That's true... the 3 people I've given rides to have mentioned just that!!
This omission really maddens me.  The only reason we don't have hand grabs is because Elon doesn't like them.  This is a constant issue I hear about from passengers.  Also, I am disabled and these really are useful for those of us not 30 anymore.
These are a must.

There is a whole list of interior refinements that are standard on other luxury sedans. I won't list them here; just know these handles are on that list.
Yes, I would love to have the handles...since this car is RWD, it would be especially helpful to the passengers in the 2nd row.
Handles that are recessed so they don't jut out should have been a part of the design. My elderly mother griped about this and she's right.
Folding grab handles should be very easy to add.
Come on Elon, bend a little. I frequently have older passengers in the car & they always have trouble getting out. What's the problem already?
Build a car that has ludicrous acceleration but don't install oh S#!t handles... THAT is insane.
Yes, necessary for old folks like me.
Older passangers always ask for the handle...
This could also make up for the missing coat hook.
This could also make up for the missing clothes hanger.
This is an important feature
Very important to get into and out of car safely
My wife really misses this feature. She has back issues and requires something to hold onto even during very moderate maneuvers. The lack of such a feature represents a glaring omission  in a car of this class.
When, and I say when, luxury car maker start putting 100%EV on the market Tesla will have to adjust because the interior of the MS even with leather interior is very basic...
yup, that would be great!
