One of the most sought-after features by Tesla owners is the ‘dog mode.’ It was missing for a long time and one eager user tweeted to Elon Musk, requesting the feature. According to the reply posted by the Tesla chief, the feature might just be coming. The speculation for the feature emerged after a Twitter user, named Josh Atchley tweeted to Musk, asking for the ‘dog mode’ for times when people have left their pets in the car.
Musk replied ‘Yes’ to the question, sparking the debate over the availability of the ‘dog mode’. Back in 2016, Tesla had introduced a v8 software which had a feature on it called “Cabin Overheat Protect” that would keep the car at a ‘safe’ temperature for a time period. It could operate even when the car is turned off. Reports said that the feature was introduced to for child and pet safety.
