The CCI (Center Console Insert) Wait List first opened back in October, 2012, and we’ve reached an important milestone. Our website redesign is complete and we've now opened up our new EVannex.com site and CCI e-commerce store to all - please shop the site and enjoy the new look! Ordering for CCIs is now immediate (no more wait list). In addition, we're able to take an order and fulfill it in a reduced period of time due to an improving production process and fulfillment optimization. We can now target delivery of Custom CCIs in a 3 to 6 week window from the date of an order. That represents a 25 percent improvement in fulfillment time. For our Standard CCI orders, we target delivery in a 1 to 2 week window from the date of an order.
CCI (Center Console Insert) Update
With 23 product variations, allowing you to mix-and-match your Center Console Insert to best create the right "look" for your Tesla Model S, you might be interested in these statistics! Here are our latest percentages for orders of our custom veneer deck finishes for the CCI:
Carbon Fiber—41 percent
Obeche Gloss—21 percent
Obeche Matte—18 percent
Piano Black—9 percent
For upholstery colors: Black and Tan are overwhelming favorites, accounting for 78 percent of all Center Console Insert orders. Grey and white orders are also coming in on a regular basis.
And, the CCI is spreading all over the world. We have now delivered CCIs in 37 states and Canada, and just received our very first European order—from Norway!
We’re hard at work on the design and prototyping for three new products.
One of our first new aftermarket accessories for the Tesla Model S is a custom nosecone for the exterior of the Model S. Although things are preliminary at the moment, we’re looking at two product variants. One is a classic “grille” look with our own take on what a Tesla Model S grille might be. The other is something a little more edgy in making your Tesla Model S stand out. We’ll see how the design work evolves and present it to you when the prototypes mature a bit. Our other new aftermarket accessories for the Tesla Model S will address rear seat storage, cup holders, and rear seat entertainment options.
We’ve come up with a couple of unique approaches to these capabilities and are working on preliminary design and prototyping. If you want to be among the very first to receive new product information when it’s available, please sign-up on our newly re-named VIP list. Some initial "teaser" images of early work prototyping are below.
