Energy App Screen Reset

Description

Provide an option to reset the energy screen.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

I don’t care how I drove yesterday. The energy app is useful but since it is cumulative and may include energy use from previous trips it should be resettable.

My Prius allows me to reset the energy usage data why not my Tesla?  This is a simple software function and should only cost the software engineer some time, it can be rolled out in a future firmware update at no cost.

Editor: The instrument display trip info does have the energy used since the last charge, which may satisfy some users.

basically you want to have energy related to your trip meters, plus a lifetime meter.
Hassellboxter you are correct.  The lifetime data is useful for calculating operating costs, especially if you have TOU  (time of use) electrical service.  Having resettable energy related trip meters and usage allows every driver to know how they are driving and not combined with another drivers driving habits.
The lifetime data is only available if you don't reset one of the trip meters from initial ownership. I've done this so I have the data. On every anniversary of delivery I collect the annual data so I can determine total Tesla EV related costs for my Time of Use true up.

However, the drive to drive data is partially taken care of with the newer trip data now available in the dash area.
