Mine would be Lightning style frunk and sail pillar storage but they weren't on the list. AC plugs should be a given so I went with mid-gate and solar vault cover, although I'd take a Starlink dish integrated in the glass roof over it.

I picked fold-flat seats for sleeping in cabin and solar. My third choice, not listed, is refrigerated frunk. Integrating that with climate control in the design would be much better than an after-market option.

I added the frunk option.

Sail pillar storage is already a feature so I didn’t include it on the list.

The 220v was demonstrated at the reveal. So it's not like any of the other features on this list.

Yeah, I should have been clear what features I was assuming were already part of it. We know SOME AC Will be supported 240v @50a and power in the frunk would be above that.

was thinking basically the difference between Rivian power setup and the F150.

My standard feature list is:

1) solar rear glass roof, but no solar vault cover. Plug would be nice though.
2) There won't be a center console, but Steam will run on the dash screen. Rear screen is possible when middle seat backrest is folded up or down. If there is it will have steam.
3) HVAC to the bed is included, but no opening midgate window.
4) rear seat is already fold up, so the front seats need to slide forward up to the dash which would create a double bed space on the rear floor. I'd prefer this over a midgate.
5) it will have power outlets everywhere, frunk, cab and bed
6) Drone is possible but unlikely. If so a sub 250g model to avoid registration
7) boat mode is standard all models
8) front and rear attachment points standard
9) no 5th wheel support out of the box
10) no midgate because of boat mode
11) underside cameras, and updated ToF cameras standard
12) Follow me etc yes, but in a later update
13) no pen - pen requires paper, paper is not good for the environment 🤪
14) sadly probably won't have a lifting grill frunk because of the boat mode feature now. But it will still be reasonably big. I am also expecting HVAC in the frunk, to run it as a cool box.
15) at least one new feature that no one ever thought about

If I was the designer I'd first get rid of the silly two limitation. It's not how vehicle design works.
