It's an amazing feeling when you take delivery of your first Tesla. There's that new car smell, the serene silence of having no internal combustion engine, ultra-smooth acceleration, and the extreme torque when you stomp on the accelerator pedal. However, looking at your pristine, shiny, perfect new car might leave you feeling a little nervous.
Why? Because no matter how careful you are, your new Tesla might become less-than-perfect with all the typical wear-and-tear that's inflicted after owning any car for some time. So what can you do to protect your Tesla? Well... actually, quite a lot.

Protecting the Exterior
First, let's talk about your wheels. Yes, they're beautiful. But, one small mistake when rushing to parallel park, or driving through at a fast-food drive-through, or parking at the drive-up bank ATM lane and you hear the dreaded scraping sound coming from the curb. You know there's trouble, open your door, look down, and there it is... unsightly "curb rash" on your Tesla wheel. Scraping or scuffing your rims may lower resale value, look messy, or worse. You can avoid this with one of our more popular products for rim protection—wheel bands.

Okay... so what about protecting the gorgeous exterior of your Tesla against the elements when parked outside? For that, we recommend that you consider our Car Cover, a relatively low cost way to protect your Tesla from dust, rain, snow and other elements.
Protecting the Interior
Too much sun can represent a threat to your interior. The interior of your car can heat up quickly when parked outside in the hot sun making the steering wheel and seats uncomfortable to the touch. Extreme heat can also be detrimental to the control electronics and dashboard. To keep your Tesla interior cool and protected, check out our custom-designed Sunshades.
There are other ways to protect your interior. To keep your beautiful center touchscreen display free from fingerprints, smudges, scratches and UV rays, check out our Screen Protectors. On the floor, all Tesla's come with factory floor mats. However, they're susceptible to dirt, sand, snow, and debris — especially during the winter time. Many Tesla owners choose our all-weather Floor Mats that defend against harsh winters, camping, and other activities that tend to create a mess on your Tesla's floor. They're easy to clean, custom-designed for your Tesla, and built to offer maximum protection against the elements.

All Tesla vehicles have beautiful upholstery that often needs protection from adult occupants, children, and pets.
Let's say you're coming from the beach or pool or from a workout at the gym and your shirt or shorts are wet. Having that uncomfortable feeling of sticking to the seat isn't fun, and you might also discolor the upholstery if you do it too often. We've developed the Seat Hoodie so you can have another layer of protection (and comfort) in those situations. And, for complete and semi-permanent seat protection, we've also got our neoprene Seat Covers for your Tesla.
