The American brand offers a unique feature: a dog mode to keep your companion cool in case of heat.
Sometimes Twitter is good. In 2018, a user of the social network had arrested Elon Musk, whimsical boss of the car brand Tesla.
“Could you install a dog mode on the Model 3? The music would continue to play and the air conditioning would be turned on. On the central screen, we could display a message: “I’m fine, my master will be back soon” – @nynex
Response from Elon Musk: “yes! “.

Available since February 2019 on the Tesla Model 3, this device does exactly what the Internet user asked for. The car keeps the cabin at a bearable temperatureavoiding heat-related dramas.
Once the owner is out, it displays a message assuring passers-by that the animal is safe.

The mode activates via the central screen when the car is parked (parking brake engaged). Warning: it is necessary to have a charge level greater than 20% to activate the device. Similarly, it automatically cuts off if the battery drops below 10%. The driver then receives an alert on his phone.
Vigilance therefore remains in order.
In Dog Mode, air conditioning will stay on while the car is locked, keeping your pets safe & comfortable https://t.co/QrftTjkGNR
