Tesla CEO Elon Musk has hinted that the company may produce cars with a “dog mode” to keep canines safe in hot weather, Business Insider reports.

The matter came up on Twitter, with a user asking whether the company could create a dog mode “Where the music plays and the ac is on, with a display on screen saying ‘I’m fine my owner will be right back’?”

Musk replied simply: “Yes.”

Business Insider notes that Musk is unusual as a CEO for the fact that he interacts readily and informally with Twitter users.

The publication explains that while his reply is no guarantee that dog mode will become a reality, “it suggests it’s on the company’s radar.”

Hundreds of dogs die each year from being left in hot cars, Business Insider notes.
