Using an umbrella is a great inconvenience for a driver. Right now, when it rains, I place a collapsible umbrella on the floor under the emergency brake pedal; not the greatest solution, but workable.
A safer and more consumer friendly innovation for an industry leader would be to develop a vertical zippered/expanding pouch on the front driver door near the hinge, to hold currently popular button activated automatically opening and closing umbrellas, the inconvenience would virtually disappear.
You would be able to grasp the umbrella, open the door,push the umbrella's button and......voila,experience immediate protection from the weather. On reentry, you open the door, sit in the seat and press the button on the umbrella to close it and return it o its pouch. I follow these procedures successfully now, but with the umbrella in an inconvenient and not safest location.
