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?

FYI- check out this post/thread before purchasing your own mats.

@kublai,

Great news!

I find it pretty funny how many things are missing vs a car at this price range. It's something we should stay vigilant on or less be fan boyz and gurlz who are whipped in awe.

kublai, thanks. It's all too easy to forget that Tesla has just started shipping this kind of car literally weeks ago, while the manufacturers they are compared to have been doing it for decades!

Just give them a couple more weeks and they'll figure it out -- many complaints and entire threads have become entirely pointless after Tesla had had enough time to just do what they wanted to do and needed to do, anyway. This thread is awaiting the same fate. :-)

I asked my delivery specialist about mats. Specifically, I asked him if Tesla was going to offer mats (especially rear mats) for purchase. He said he knew of no plans to offer mats yet and never indicated that Tesla was going to eventually provide mats as included equipment.

Tesla, if indeed you intend to ship buyers a full set of mats at a later date, can you please confirm and save all of us the aggravation and expense of buying after market mats unnecessarily?

Either way we need to buy rear floor mats. Are you not going to allow passengers in the rear of your Model S while you wait for them? That isn't an option for me.

Perhaps a sharp, TM merchandise manager will get the message and order up a few sets, it will be an easy sale and why shouldn't TM make the sale rather than an aftermarket company. "S" owners would probably prefer to buy rear mats that are the same as the front (I would). Besides, what's another $500 in the grand scheme of things? Just kidding about $500.

Either way we need to buy rear floor mats. (BYT)

Not sure if your read kublai's post above:

Volker, I believe there was an update from the original poster, DrComputer, regarding the Tesla floormats:

Quote From DrComputer on TMC Forum:
Ok, so now after I posted his response he e-mailed back and said he made an error and will get back to me on what part of the new mats will be free and which part will be a "paid upgrade". I'll post his clarification when I get it.

h8young, thank you! So we'll see...

VB, I read it and unfortunately where I am the next month or two (of which I will have my Model S within the next week or two tops) means I have no floor mats in the rear of my car. I am also entering the wet season where I live and so I have two choices. No passengers in the rear or purchase rear floor mats. I will be purchasing rear floor mats.

In regards to warm weather or wet climates :

I was thinking about the floor mat idea and live in California.

It seems an antiquated idea to put floor mats over carpet that already exists? Its like grandma putting plastic on her couch.

Why? I do have floor mats in my current car, but every time they get dirty.. the car wash / detail guy can easily get the stains out... even the ones I thought would never come out.

Are floor mats a thing of the past just like the gas engine? (for warm weather and non wet climates)

I do understand that if you live in the North East that mud and dirt are more likely to get in your car.

On that note... I might just skip floor mats all together. what do I need them for? Tesla provides a carpet on the floor.

BYT, gotcha. Although I'm having a hard time feeling pity for you... I'd buy a dozen floor mats if that would bring me any closer to driving my Model S! ;-)

VB, I hear you, floor mats seem like such a petty issue, I blame the post for making it important in my mind. It's a flame fanned on top of irony mountain. I need to work on my analogies! :D

virtualarry -- I think the car guy gets the stains out easily by taking the floor mats OUT and running them through a machine. Less easy to do if you don't have removable carpet in mat form.

To add to what michaelwm said, you also may have stains that bleed into the carpet's, better into the removable ones then the carpets in the car. Do you have kids virtualarry? :)

Mich... well said, It is easier to clean if you can remove the mat. My car currently has tan carpet and mats so it gets dirty easy.

BYT... yes I have 1 son, but he will be in the rear jumper seats for now.

Also the carpet and seats are black in my configuration. Not sure black carpet can get stained that easily?

I just received my Lloyd Luxe front/rear mats. They are quite nice are are a perfect fit. About a half inch thick and rubber backed. If you want something a bit less plush, I think Lloyd Ultimat may be a good choice - they appear to be about 2/3 the thickness of the Luxe.

The Ebony color is very slightly grayer than the stark black of the Tesla carpet & mats, but it looks very good and blends well with its surroundings. I think the color will wear better than black mats, since they are still dark enough to hide stains but lighter dirt/dust will be somewhat less visible.

I'd recommend them to anybody that wants to keep their Model S carpet looking like new.

I have the Ultimats instead of the luxe arriving on Monday or Tuesday. I'll post info when they arrive.

How about a plexi glass floor so u can see the battery pack under the car

It is utterly ridiculous that Tesla has included the front mats and not the rear. This is a move that Chevy or Buick would pull. Not only that, but the service people are saying I can go buy the rear mats on the Tesla site. This is not true. They offer a front/rear package, but not just rear. And they aren't actually available for sale, even if I were interested in paying for them. Tesla, you don't nickel and dime your early customers like this. This is exactly the type of car company Elon was trying not to build. You're doing so well elsewhere. Don't you think you should fix this?

JoeBen, was wondering if your the same JoeBen that invented the JOBY/Gorillapod and used to work at Velocity 11?

Anyway, yes, I agree that TM should have included rear mats or at least added them to the "due" bill. I purchased a set online, just the rear but wish I didn't have to. It sucks as I am still waiting to get mine and have to vacuum the rear carpet currently and worry about staining it before it arrives.

I was even looking for the cheap ones in the mean time at Target to have something but they didn't have them locally. The small mats I see sold at auto-parts stores aren't good enough either.
