Connectivity is crucial in this modern day and many people are struggling with Model 3 with wanting wireless charging, dashcam storage etc..

If you could have a voice with Tesla, what would you prefer to see in their cars?

HDMI! When FSD becomes a reality, I want to connect my firestick and stream stuff! ;)

I'll pick style A simply because that seems to be what I have a bunch of. Honestly though, I charge my phone at home or at work and never use the ports.

I’d actually prefer the USB3.0 with A style connector...not one of the options listed. I chose the option of 3 USB C connectors, but it is the A style that I want most.

I'd be happy with 3x USB-C ports assuming that Tesla would change the phone-charging cables included with the car to match. My only concern would be the continuing popularity of USB-A for flash drives and laptop computers, which would require folks with these devices to buy an adapter (or dual-connector drive) in order to plug the drive into both places.

BTW, I think the first choice has a typo... should be "2x USB C + microSD"

USB-C is probably be the most capable and future proof.

USB-A is popular now, but i don’t doubt that, eventually, all my USB-A things will be relegated to the same places where all my (free!) AOL and Compuserve floppies ended up, and where my 5.25” disks ended up before that.

I just think that in the near future, USB-C will be “it”, and all the other choices are available with a USB-C plug/adapter..
