I love the Model S Touchscreen center console. I think the future “entry level Tesla EV” could have a smaller console like the one in the car that appears in the Corning Glass video (2:03)


I like the graphics, but the screen seems a little too big. It’s almost like it doesn’t belong, as if someone took a giant iPad and glued it to the dash.

Can the voice commands control the temp? I’d love to be able to say, “set temp to 75 degrees”, and it just happens, no scrolling. Or “air-conditioning on”, without going through a bunch of menus.

Also, if the screen breaks/quits/whatever, is the car still operable?

I don’t know about the extent of voice commands.
If the screen freezes or whatever, then according to Tesla people in their showroom, it won’t affect the driving functions of the car. Apparently they are different systems.

Sitting in the car, it felt the screen size was natural, given that few physical controls are present. And the screen is segmented at most times with the menu navigation at the top, and climate controls at bottom, so it doesn’t look like one big screen, unless you are using the maps function when you want it to be big.

I want one!
