Tesla’s New ‘Dog Mode’ Lets You Know If Your Pet’s Ok In The Car

Elon Musk is nothing if not an innovator; but apparently he’s got a soft side for man’s best friend as well as extra terrestrial AI too.



Tesla has just introduced their newest innovation. It’s not a micro chip on which you can store your thoughts, or a 3400-wheeler truck powered by alien brain matter. Nope. It’s actually super practical.




It’s called Dog Mode and it can be installed in all Tesla vehicles through a software update.

In short, it’s a little screen displayed in the car which, when you’ve had to leave your dog in the vehicle to nip to get him some jerky sticks, lets passersby know your dog is okay. Even cooler – literally – the feature can keep the air-conditioning running.




When in Dog Mode the car’s centre screen will show the cabin temperature, as well as this message: ‘My owner will be back soon.’
