LOOK: Tesla Model 3 interior now officially free of leather

AFP Relaxnews September 04,2019

The Tesla Model 3 features a completely leather-free interior, as seen in Tesla’s post on Twitter last Sunday, Sept. 1

Previously, the only component standing between the electric vehicle and being 100% free of leather was the steering wheel. Tesla’s chief executive officer Elon Musk attributed this to the difficulty of creating a non-leather steering wheel with a functional heating mechanism.

Now, Model 3 owners can have their entire interior finished in vegan, synthetic materials; in fact, a couple years ago, vegan seats became the standard for all Tesla vehicles.

The company did not confirm whether or not the entire interior was vegan, but Musk did say previously that the Model 3 and Model Y will be by next year. RGA/JB
