Front wheel drive option for MX

by fonguy

Description

Offer a software selectable drive operation to disable the rear motor unless both front wheels slip.

Benefit will be added range under driving conditions that don’t require all wheel drive.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Editor: It’s unclear what options will be available, how AWD will work, and how such changes will affect efficiency and safety on the Model X, so this is a bit premature.

Front Camera for Parking

by Elephant

Description

A front camera, similar to the same HD camera as in the back would resolve almost all issues with parking sensors. It’s not the same but could help a lot, particularly to avoid scratching the front bottom.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Would involve the cost of a camera and some kind of video switcher and a bit of software. We estimate the retail cost to be less than $200 if produced in high-volume and integrated into the Model S. Seems quite doable. One concern is how to keep the front camera clean from bug hits and dirt.

Status

One third-party front camera solution is available at TMC, which displays on the Tesla screen.  Parts cost is about $450.
