Tesla Has A Feature To Keep Your Dog Cool In The Car
Say what you will about Elon Musk but many of his cars come with a pretty cool (literally) feature for dog owners. If you’ve lived in the South for more than a year, you know by now that summer is not over yet. The heat and humidity stick around well past Labor Day. You almost always have to think about the temperature when you take your dog for a ride in the car.
Warm weather especially can become an issue if you’re out running errands with your four-legged friends and can’t take them in the store with you. You certainly don’t want your dog sitting in a hot car, but you might not want to keep the engine on and the A/C blowing either. According to The Street, some Tesla cars have the solution for that.
As of 2019, Tesla Model Y, 3, S, and X vehicles come with an interior environment control called Dog Mode, which allows owners to set a temperature in the car without them being in it. The temperature can even be controlled while the car isn’t running. To me, this is a much more useful and safer feature than self-driving. You can read more about Tesla’s Dog Mode HERE.
