Saddle Leather option: vote here!

Model S needs a "saddle" brown leather upholstery option. It would be my first choice, by a long margin, over the tepid tan, lifeless gray, or thigh-burning black. Let's send a message to Tesla here; if you share my view, please vote here.

If you want to "see" what saddle looks like, check the Roadster Design Studio; select Interior/Executive Package, and then click Saddle for the Primary and Accent colors.

Since I'm currently thinking performance version, I chose the Exec + Carbon Fiber version and...

I really like the beige + saddle version. Either combo. Although saddle + black is very attractive too.

Gray + black looks ok and I prefer the Rally versions of those for matching the carbon fiber. However the saddle color brightens the palette nicely for those too.

I vote yes for saddle.

Dear Tesla,

If I can't purchase the saddle leather from TM I will order the cloth interior and payn a local shop to recover the seats. I would prefer to give you my $1,500.

Thank you,

I agree with Jason S. If chocolate brown is available as an interior color, I would choose it. As it is, my car will most likely be black with tan interior.

P.S. The tan color I saw in Fremont was very ordinary and did nothing to excite me, same with the grey.

Hi Robert,

A saddle brown leather upholstery option would probably be my top choice as well.



+1 for saddle brown

+1 for saddle brown for my sig!

That would be lovely! I think that it would go great with my green performance model.

+1 would look good with Shasta white or red!

i've been asking for this for a while as well...any deeper brown, but not light tan! My alternative (but a poor second choice in south Florida) is black...

My alternative (but a poor second choice in south Florida) is black...

Well, if Robert's thigh-burning black doesn't do it for you, how about his lifeless gray. ;-)

Seriously, even though we also live in Florida so far we've narrowed it down to black or grey. My wife's convertible has a grey suede seat and back with black leather trim, that works for her both from an aethetic and comfort point of view.

With the Model S being able to precondition the cabin perhaps these dark colors will be less problematic than in conventional cars.


Given that Tesla effectively builds to order (90 day confirmation), the classic inventory headaches from too many flavors don't exist here.

There's no NHTSA or engineering issues with leather color, so why not make folks happy?

Seems like an easy win to stoke the faithful.



+1 for saddle brown. Please make us happy Tesla.

I smell an opportunity for Tesla to offer an executive leather option in order for folks to get saddle brown. Gotta keep those margins over 25% ;-)

Absolutely agree. Saddle interior is rich, beautiful and practical. It is something TM should offer in that it will not a affect margins, nor will it impact labor and have only minor impact on inventory.

Please ... Pretty puleeze ... TM ... This is something you can give Sig owners that's easy and will have no real affect on bottom line. It can also be provided as an option for others. Do it!!


Then, every time I open the door to my Model S and look inside, I will have a stupid grin, and forget about how much money I just spent.

Oh yeah, I said it once already.

Would love to have it

Sadle, sadle, sadle, sadle leather brown, make it available for everyone.

Easy way to improve the interior of the Model S



Sorry for the type O, I meant saddle. I just agree so strongly I typed quickly on my iPad without proof reading.

Saddle leather with a black or dark grey car would be my favorite combo. And if possible with extensive saddle leather covering the dash and top parts of the doors. Porsche offers this on their Cayenne and it looks gorgeous.

So Saddle get's my vote over every other interior color..

Saddle up !

Haha, +1 for the saddle leather for sure...but, i can imagine that they've pre-ordered a certain amount of leather in black, grey and tan. What if, given the option, 50-70% of buyers choose saddle? They'll be stuck with half a warehouse of unfavorably coloured cowskin.

@erik: Although what you suggest is possible, I have to believe that TM is doing a better job at supply chain management than that. We're still almost 6 months from production. Any tentative order for leather colors can certainly be modified at this stage.

Tesla -- there is substantial demand for saddle leather. Please do the right thing and provide saddle as a color option. In addition to making reservation holders happy, you'll provide more configuration variety for Sig holders who current have VERY limited options. Add it as an option for P holders and you hit a home run, even if the final interior design is less than stellar. Thx.

P.S. I'm sending a formal request to my TM customer rep today. I strongly urge each of you to do the same.

Offering an extra leather color is not a big change.. I'm going to urge my customer advocate to send our wish to Tesla HQ..

I already sent my consumer advocate an email regarding this matter.

+1 Great suggestion. Saddle brown leather would top my list for the interior.

+1 saddle brown would be my choice as well!
