All Tesla electric vehicles come equipped with some of the most advanced features and creature comforts that you can think of. However, there is a reason why the vehicle after-market exists. Every new car still has a need for some very cool accessories and the same can be said for your new Tesla.
In this post, I will be exploring some vehicle accessories that you can purchase for your Tesla in order to optimize your experience. Trust me when I say that these accessories are extremely cool and I highly recommend them for your car. They can help you with things like safety and maintenance to help preserve the value of your vehicle and more.
Yoke Steering Wheel
Since the yoke steering wheel was added to the new Tesla models, it has become a very popular item for the after-market crowd. Like the Tesla Cybertruck, this yoke design is also very polarizing. You either really love it or absolutely hate it.
Regardless of where you stand, there is no doubt that the yoke steering represents a paradigm shift (in a long line of paradigm shifts) in the automotive industry spurred on by the Tesla design team.
There is an argument to be made that yoke steerings are much more tactile and intuitive than normal steering wheels. If you subscribe to that line of thinking, then you will be happy to know that you don't have to spend a ton on buying a new model Tesla. You can simply upgrade your current Tesla steering wheel with one of these after-market yoke steering wheels.
Tire Air Compressor Pump
It is always advisable to have an air compressor that is portable. For your Tesla, this is very important too, especially, for people with range anxiety. For your vehicle to remain efficient and reach the optimal range, recommendations are made for you to always ensure that a certain amount of air pressure is maintained in the tires.
For people that consider comfort to be more important than range and efficiency, getting your tires deflated a little bit Is recommended. So, get a portable air compressor that is compatible with your 12V outlet (USB for Teslas) and can easily be kept in the trunk of your Tesla.
Tire Repair Kit
This accessory is always recommended for every vehicle. For your Tesla Model 3, it is all the more important as this vehicle does not come with spare tires just like you will find in many cars. Although some roadside assistance solutions happen to make the quick tire kit a little bit unnecessary, it is good to be prepared for emergencies. This can help to give you much-needed peace of mind while driving your vehicle.
Center Screen Protector
The center screen protector is another essential for your Tesla. Tesla fans are excited about the center touchscreen; however, it happens to be a fingerprint magnet and seems to be a little bit vulnerable to scratches and cracks similar to the screens of smartphones. So, getting a screen protector for your Tesla Model 3 touchscreen is a good idea.
You will find many tempered glass protectors that are customized for this vehicle in particular with an easy-to-install process. This helps to lower glare and reflection, as well as, fingerprints. Basically, a center screen protector does not inhibit the touchscreen's responsiveness and will offer adequate protection for the screen.
Center Console Wrap
Looking for an aesthetic accessory? Then, the center console wrap is the answer. You’ve probably been complaining about how your touchscreen seems to magnet fingerprints. Well, the center console does something similar as you will notice smudges all over it. Then again, in addition to the smudges, the design of the center console makes the plastic material look very cheap and obvious.
The console really sticks out like your thumb and kind of cheapens your great-looking interior in a way. This slight problem can be fixed very easily. You will find customized wraps specifically designed for the center console of your Tesla.
Additionally, when it comes to aesthetics, it provides you with an upgrade that is cheap and can be achieved in little or no time. It comes in a wide variety of colors which you can get to select based on what aesthetic you are looking for. I personally feel that the shiny black of the console from Tesla gives it a very cheap appearance. So any improvement is welcome.
In many climates, floor mats happen to be quite essential for the optimum use of your vehicle. Even if they feel kind of bulky in a way, they are very good for your Tesla Model 3. You can find cheaper floor mats than that offered by Tesla. Then again, you will find floor mats that blend perfectly with your interiors.
You’ll agree that with floor mats, cleaning the interiors of your Tesla Model 3 will be much easier while helping to reduce how fast the car floor begins to wear out. In the long run, you’ll be retaining the value of your vehicle. Added to this, you can, also, get mats for the Model 3 storage area, as well as, the trunk and frunk.
Protective Vinyl For The Door Sill
Although other people tend to see this as unnecessary, if you really think about it, it is quite important. For Teslas, you will notice that their chrome door sill tends to get scratches. Installing this accessory is very easy and will not take up more than five precious minutes of your time, and once it dries out, it is virtually impossible to notice any difference. If you're looking to retain your vehicle's value, this is a very good solution.
Wireless Phone Charger
This particular accessory may not be necessary for everybody. There are people who struggle with the charging setup in their Tesla 3. Getting their smartphone to slide in is always a difficulty. A lot of phones today are beginning to have wireless charging technology. This is the rationale behind Tesla including a charging pad on your console in order to have an easier charging experience.
If your Tesla does not come with a wireless charging pad, you can simply purchase a regular wireless charger that connects to your USB that can work for that purpose.
Some other Nice-to-have accessories that you could be interested in for your Tesla Model 3 include:
- Getting cool-looking lights as a replacement for the vehicle’s puddle lights.
- Whether you have the Model 3 performance or not, the aluminum pedal look is very much a great accessory for your Tesla.
- Another very cool accessory is chrome delete. You can apply this on older models of the Tesla Model 3 where chrome delete wasn't yet standard.
These accessories are superb and will allow you to enjoy your overall experience while driving your Tesla Model 3. Lastly, let us not forget the ultimate smart backpack for Tesla owners - the Cyberbackpack.
