Has anyone located a custom fit car cover and/or rubber floor matts? We received a pair of carpet floor mats for the front but not for the rear. Did anyone receive rear mats?
More games.....the all-weather Tesla mats don't arrive until the 1st quarter 2013. These will probably be more desirable if there is any weather in your locale. I think I'll resist the urge to buy the plain jane mats and wait to see the all-weathers but have a funny feeling we won't see them until March.
As a general comment, note that Tesla is being as conservative as possible about what is "included". Many express that as reducing what's "free" with the car, but forget that for those who don't want that option/default, that means paying (embedded in base price) for something unwanted. With consequent griping or howling of "ripoff!"
Attributing this policy to greed and nickel-and-diming is questionable; every option increases admin and production complexity, and results in scheduling conflicts as people waffle. "Included" would be much easier, as evidenced by the '85 kWh+air' early priority.
Normal floor covering mats are included with a new cars. I only received front floor cover mats and very cheap ones at that.
All weather mats should be an additional charge.
Tesla should provide the front, rear and cargo area mats with the purchase of the car.
I am happy these mats are not standard as I have absolutely no use for them (or the parcel shelf). I do not need more stuff to store indefinately :(
If they were to include good mats as standard then we should get to choose between cloth and rubber mats. Too much hassle for them I think, better make both optional.
Now, when are the rubber mats coming ? ;)
Luxury cars should come standard with good quality floor mats, front and back. There is no excuse for not including them, other than the nickel and dime scheme.
When i picked up my S, it didnt come with my front mats, rear trunk well cover(jumper seat for option kids), or parcel shelf. These will come in the due bill later.
The frunk had a carpet mat but it was really thin and no logo. If this was any indication of what the front mats were going to look like, i'll pass on those. Rather then waiting for my front mats only, I ordered the loyd mats lux carpet. They looked and fit great. Very heavy duty, but the only things i dont like about them is no Tesla logo and dont want to screw any plastic holder into the existing carpet. I'll velcro that just wished it had tesla logo.
I heard from someone at the Menlo Park store, they went to Oreilly's auto parts got a truck bed liner mat for their rear floor mats and it fit pretty nicely.
Lou in SoCal, when you place the order you don't specify battery, so how would the reservation sequence number be assigned by pack size at that time?
I agree the lack of communication is hard.... I would bet though that it relates to Sarbanes Oxley- since production and revenue targets are material information, and TMC is publicly traded, the lawyers have probably told them they can't be very specific. Plus I would bet they are firing cars to the line as they have parts for the various options- they have been increasing rate very rapidly- so they probably wouldnt have any idea of when your car will be produced until after you finalize. Clearly the custom build model is not really 100% what is happening- rather building what they can and then looking down the list for 'who has ordered that?'
Personally this doesnt bother me. They are a startup, I want them to succeed (and stay in business to support my car long term), and whatever production sequence helps them get profitable is the best for all owners in the long term, in my opinion.
ok, just saw in the store they had premium floor mats available with logo. Has anyone ordered these?
strange... the mats just disappeared from the model s 'functional' store. Guess they are already sold out.. Oh well
FYI- we took delivery of our beautiful Pearl white model S yesterday at the factory. There were NO floor mats in the car. Our delivery specialist (Shawn) was awesome and immediately told us about it. The floor mats are out of stock right now and we are getting front and rear floor mats delivered to us as soon as they are available. We also are awaiting the parcel shelf, rear seats, and the new vanity mirror lights whenever those are released.
I have a feeling these might be the same Tesla-badged mats that were for sale online. I'm guessing they may be giving them free of charge to everyone now, particularly if they were pulled from the store.
Btw- I cannot believe we finally have the car. It is the most incredible feeling. We are truly driving the future!
rd2 thanks for the feedback and Congrats on receiving your Pearl white beauty!
Please keep us posted. I'm afraid your DS may have mis-communicated...
It is highly unlikely that TM is providing those mats from the on-line store (though they should be) to MS customers. As you may have seen from earlier posts, everyone else who has received their car has either gotten just front mats w/o TM logo or no mats.
Thanks again and please keep us posted.
My S was delivered last Sunday without the front floor mats. They are a Due Bill item. At this point I could care less as I ordered the front and rear mats from the Tesla store Friday evening before they sold out.
The front mats that came with my Model S are OK. I don't have strong feelings about mats one way or the other, but am definitely not spending hundreds for a "premium" set. My big problem with the standard mats is they have no mechanism to keep them in place besides velcro, and it is definitely not sufficient. They don't stay put for a day.
>:( So, you're one of the culprits who cleaned them out!! >;P
Don't forget a dash cover! The UV is brutal where I live.
I've already picked up the one-piece rear mat from carcoverplanet.com -- they're pretty good.
I do not have my car yet but asked my delivery specialist who is at the Florida store about mats and car covers. He said that the rear mats will be delivered at no charge when they are ready. Front mats have been included in most deliveries already. He didn't know why they weren't included originally.
Also, he made the comment that a sun screen for pano-glass is also being worked on and will be installed at no charge for those pano-glass owners who think they need it.
He also said that they are working on a car cover fit for outdoor use. The cover listed on the webstore is currently indoor only.
Take those comments for what they are worth. Would be really nice to see an official communication on these types of things as they tend to generate a ton of forum traffic.
@sandman, I think your delivery specialist's comment is another one for the "Don't believe anything you are told by a Tesla Rep" thread. Not saying he's wrong, just that he has been contradicted by other reps.
@sandman talked to head of Tesla Service today in Fremont. There are no free front and rear mats with the Tesla logo that they know of. Get your delivery specialist to put that in writing!
What i've heard is the weather tech mats are coming and the thick Tesla Front and Back mats have sold out.
In other news...The iPhone app for Tesla is almost out the door.

Isn't that what the overenthusiastic windshield coating is supposed to be blocking?
such incredible BS that my 80,000 car doesn't come with standard rear floor mats. i have let them know my displeasure and you should do the same. they said that they are evaluating it but the original decision was not to include them. dumb.
Mr. Haney on Green Acres?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIvjz2X-Kok
I love my new car, but what is it with these idiots on this site who are defending Tesla on this floor mat issue. It is very simple and I will not state the obvious. (If you don’t know what the obvious is, check out the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIvjz2X-Kok)
I just purchased Lloyd's lux mats today from autoanything.com with free shipping and 15% discount.
Buyers remorse on Lloyd mats. Teslas premium mats are leagues ahead. Do not get the cargo well mat from them it's horrendous and also having a hard time getting a refund for this from Autoanything!
Just got the front and rear custom Tesla floor mats from TM for my Signature vehicle. Nice mats, understated logo on front mats. Were they worth the $250 plus somewhat expensive shipping or should I have bought cheaper third party sets? Subjective question, I like the Tesla custom mats and am happy wih decision. Will probably eventually order the Tesla trunk mats also. Should they have come standard with vehicle? Would have been nice, but as shareholder of company understand bottom line concerns. And bottom line is that very happy with this beautiful vehicle, it exceeds expectations, and the Tesla mats do add a nice touch to interior.
Third duplicate post. Flagged Spam.
Awaiting my Model S P - disappointed that this luxuery car will come without luxury mats - I unserstand the start up concept - perhaps Tesla could include them with a fully equipped 85 / 85P, and make them options in the 60 and 40 version - just my two cents -
Darn keyboard, makes me seem illiterate, maybe I am - to expand on my last post - It would be a really nice touch for Tesla to give the new 85 owners the ability to select and receive customized floor mats of their choice, as a thank you for delivering high gross % return by purchasing the 85's in the first place - this could be done retroactively so as not to disappoint earlier deliveries - that would make the Tesla experience "extra special" instead of simply special -
I pre-ordered several weeks ago a set of premium car mats (front & rear), tire kit, and All Weather liners with the Tesla logo for both the Frunk & Trunk from Kyle at the Fremont Sevice Center using my VIN. The All Weather Frunk liner was available but others were on back order. Just picked up the balance of my order 2 days ago & had them install the hooks on the floor board on the driver's side to keep the mat stationary. The premium set looks great with the T logo sewn on and keeps the car looking high end. The All Weather liners for both the Frunk & Trunk look fantastic. I believe these are sourced from Weather Tech based on my discussions with Kyle & Johnny at the Service Center. These were custom designed & fitted to the MS. These cannot be purchased from Weather Tech but only through Tesla. I would highly recommend outfitting your car with these instead of carpet as they keep the car looking new no matter how often you have spills, dirt, etc. being tracked in. The texture pattern on the liners is much better than the earlier version as it makes wiping up spills easier.
Enjoying every minute behind the wheel of my P85. Such a rush when I floor it. Feels like riding on Superman at Six Flags!
