Elon Musk Has The Internet Buzzing With Tesla’s Proposed ‘Dog Mode’
Before you get too excited, the new “dog mode” is not an idea where dogs are driven around in cars without their human companions. But it is a revolutionary idea that could help protect many canines from being left in locked, overheated cars! While the proposed plan has yet to be officially accepted, it’s something that many pet owners are lobbying for and may come to fruition much sooner than you think.
The Need For Such A System
Sad stories of pets being left in cars while their owners scurry into stores have long induced tears everywhere. While the introduction of electric cars cut down on this issue, as they stay cooler even when the engine’s shut off, most people still own conventional gas-powered vehicles that don’t have this feature.
The cabs of standard cars can reach dangerously high temperatures when left alone, meaning any living being left inside can become victim to overheating or suffocating.
The Proposed Plan
It started when one Twitter user tweeted at Elon Musk, asking “Can you put a dog mode on the Tesla Model 3. Where the music plays and the ac is on, with a display onscreen saying ‘I’m fine my owner will be right back?'” Musk responded with a simple, “Yes,” and the idea took off from there.
The rumored pitch also includes a digital readout of the car’s interior temperature so anyone who walks by can see that the pet inside is safe and there’s no cause for alarm. What a great plan!
When Can We Expect It
While it’s only a rumor that rocketed off of Musk’s tweet, it’s hard to believe he would even respond if it wasn’t something he was already thinking about. He’s an avid Twitter user, but he’s certainly not a liar.
The benefit of such a feature could benefit thousands of people and prevent misery for those who absentmindedly leave their pets in their cars to meet fatal ends. And Musk is all about helping the masses! Until then, keep an eye out for new developments and look out for any stranded pups.
