Rear Floor Mats

So, I took delivery last night and found out that rear floor mats were not included. Has anyone found a good set online that fit the rear of the Model-S? I was told by my delivery specialist that Wallmart had some that fit pretty well but I'd like to know which ones so I don't have to deal with returns if they don't fit right.

Anyone bought any floor mats for the rear seats?

You can make a cardboard (or paper) template of the rear. Then take your template to Walmart (or wherever) and find the best fit rear floor mats.

Found this... I have not received my car yet, however, I wanted to share my findings. If someone gets these, please share your review.

@Adam, I didn't see Tesla listed on there? :(

It's there.

It's listed under 2013, Tesla, Model S.

Wait, aren't the Model S' delivered considered 2012? That's why I didn't try looking under 2013.

They are by Tesla (rightly) but the rest of the industry is assuming the illogical practice of making a 2013 product early in 2012 (wrongly).

I read the comments on those, people say they really stink out of the box and it takes 2 weeks for the smell to die down. Maybe I order those now and leave them in the back yard until I get my Model S. I don't want to mess with the new Tesla Model S new car smell with whatever order those things emit.

Just search for Tesla Model S (or pick from drop downs) and it will show 14 different ones... (they just combine different options and materials).

I'm guessing that the vinyl ones will definitely smell strong (like plastic). I am thinking about getting the vinyl ones for the frunk and trunk and the nylon set for the back (keeping the factory front ones).

... and yes, I would get them before-hand to "air them" before installing them in the car. I have vinyl ones in my Prius and I did notice the smell but it went away after a week or so.

I must say I'm a bit surprised that Tesla is not including rear floor mats in the cars. Seriously, for a car in this price range and category to expect owners to have to go buy aftermarket floor mats is a little insulting. Why are they only including floor mats in the front and not in the back? Or at least make it an option to buy. The floor in the rear seating area is unique in the Model S because there is no "bump" in the middle section so custom floor mats should have been created at the factory. Owners shouldn't have to search for an aftermarket retailer to create a customized floor mat that will fit in that area. Not sure what the thinking was there.

Ben notes that there is a ridge (1-2" step) where the passenger seats have folded down. I guess the mat would just drape over that.

Adam, just ordered mine. Got the Ultimate 3 piece (Luxe looked too much like shag carpet and the guy on the phone agreed.) I'll post when I get them in my car.

Oops, should have mentioned they are the nylon not rubber mats.

I just ordered some of the Lloyd Luxe (carpet) front/rear mats from this site.
Hopefully I get the Model S before the matts, but we'll see. I selected the "Ebony" color; I'll post back when I get the mats and/or car to let folks know how it works out.

If I'm happy with the fit and quality of the mats, I'll probably also order the RubberTite trunk/frunk mats that Adam posted above.

I plan to get two slankets/snuggles and sew them together, then attach the front edge high enough along the back line of the front seats to create tumblehome so all the crumbs etc. fall back towards the kids and nothing gets on the floor OR the seats.

Just kidding.

Sort of.

How can a $60k+ car not have floor mats?

Cool---http://www.autoanything.com/floor-mats/78A4395A0A0.aspx

and they have logo or stiching also !

murraypetera,

Floor mats are optional on almost every car regardless of price.

@ jerry3

Floor mats came with my 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid, 2002 Buick Regal Gran Sport, 1989 Ford Taurus SHO, 1988 Acura Legend, 1987 Nissan Maxima SE, 1985 Nissan Maxima SE, 1984 Pontiac 6000 STE, etc. In some cases, I purchased other mats (frt & rear) that I liked better...just can't remember getting a new car without front and rear mats.

After agreeing on price, my last statement is always the same: "....and that price includes tax, title, registration, and mats out the door". I've never paid a dime extra for mats. I asked a Mercedes salesman after my last purchase if people really pay extra for mats? "Only people that are willing to" he said with a smirk.

It seems a little odd that such great attention is given to every aspect of cabin design, but we're supposed to wing-it with the floormats? Arguably one of the most visible accessories in the car.

sagebrushnw,

In Toyota and VW mats are always an optional extra, they were optional in the last Ford and Chrysler I bought (actually company cars) as well.

It's silly that we even have to have a whole thread about missing rear floor mats. Seriously Tesla, you should just include this with the car or make it as an available option. Who delivers a car with front floor mats but none in the back?

Now that I am aware of this, I think I might as well go ahead and buy third-party quality floor mats now, because I don't want people riding in the back without floor mats. Does anyone know if any of these floor-mat distributors are making them with the Tesla logo yet?

Jerry,

I don't think it's a matter that we expect free floor mats, however, at this point Tesla isn't even offering the rear mats as an option.

I'll order them ahead of time too, but can't decide on lux or ultimate yet. Need to see pics from posters! Getting ebony for my tan interior.

Anyone ever try Costco's custom auto mat supplier?...
http://www.costco.com/Coverking-Premium-40-oz.-Custom-Fit-Floor-Mats-Sta...

I tend to find many high-quality products can be obtained via Costco's suppliers for half the price of the TOP brand names (in many cases these are the same manufactures that supply to the top name-brands).

I was able to buy the highest quality espresso machine (Jura) for $500.00 less than the retail stores that sold the exact same unit, and I also bought my custom solid-wood garage door for over $1,500.00 less than the local garage door companies (same quality).

Coverking only offers the 2 front floor mats and nothing else. Front mats are included by Tesla.

They seem to be listed as options, but are always part of the only available packages.

I bought a black rectangular floor mat runner (14.75" x 57") at Pep Boys for $20. A few inches too long and not quite as deep as you'd prefer, but it works great. Mat is Kraco Model #420 Black.
