Tesla Dog Mode Keeps Pups Safe In Car & Apprises Onlookers: Video


There's just about nothing we hate worse than seeing dogs locked in a car in the heat of summer. We can honestly say at InsideEVs that many of us are dog owners and at least a few of us have called the police on occasion when we noticed dogs locked in hot cars. This same situation can prove true in subzero temps, though it's not necessarily as big of an issue. Well now, a recent over-the-air update via Tesla has addressed the latter.

While Tesla CEO Elon Musk didn't make any reference to our good friend Earl Banning (of Frunkpuppy) i.e. @28delayslater, there's sure been an influx of Tesla owners that are also dog owners chiming in on Twitter. This comes as no surprise since some 90 million U.S. citizens own at least one dog.

Earl started a trend of Tesla owners posting images of their pets in the frunk of their Tesla vehicles. While Musk hasn't really mentioned it, it has become a major craze, and even his mom — Maye Musk — has jumped on the bandwagon. Nonetheless, Banning has quite the story, which you can read in its entirety over at Teslarati.
