TESLA AND VEGAN CAR SEATS

Posted on January 18, 2016 by The VRG Blog Editor

imageAccording to The New York Times,
“For the eco-conscious car buyer, Tesla’s luxury electric vehicles, with their neck-snapping acceleration, are proof that performance doesn’t have to be sacrificed at the altar of saving the environment.

But for some discerning consumers, there is a nagging problem. The leather in the seats and steering wheel requires slaughtering animals, and the cloth substitute doesn’t quite measure up for a vehicle that can cost more than $100,000.

Now, in response, comes the Tesla that even a luxury-minded vegan could love. Synthetic leather, in a shade Tesla calls Ultra White, is available as an option for the new Model X sport utility vehicle.” For more information, see:

    I’ve never seen it mentioned anywhere that non-leather steering wheel comes with ultra white by defualt. Tesla has never mentioned vegan in the design studio or anywhere else either.
