Elon Musk responds to full-page ad seeking Model S improvements

A New York couple took out an ad in the Palo Alto Weekly asking Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk to make some improvements in the all-electric Model S sedan, including moving the cup holder forward, voice-activated phone dialing and driver safety features.

In a tweet this weekend, Musk said that many of the suggested features will be added soon, but didn’t specify which ones.

Who knew the cup holder was such a big issue!
