Tesla come fairly well equiped, but they can still use some accesorizing. Some accessories are specific to the Model 3, Model Y, Model X, and Model S, some are specific to Tesla, and some are not specific to Tesla.

Tesla has an online shop where you can find their most popular accessories but there are also a few well-known websites where you can find custom and quality aftermarket interior and exterior accessories for your Tesla such as consoles, screen protectors, floor mats, lighting/sound upgrades, car covers, and more.

We've compiled a list of our top recommended accessories by Tesla model:

Some of the more popular Tesla accessories include:

  • Interior: floor mats, frunk/trunk lifts, seat covers/protectors, consoles, sunshades, hooks, lightning upgraes, pedal covers, pet covers, trunk organizers, frunk coolers, window control covers, and door control covers.
  • Exterior: car covers, eco hitch, puddle lights, rim protectors, lug nuts and covers, valve stem caps, vinyl T accents, licence plate mounts, spoliers, camera covers, appliqués, chrome delete kits, charging adapters/accessories.

[Rumor] Tesla is working with 3M to do custom wraps for the Cybertruck

Tesla already offers wraps in China, it would be an interesting service if they would do a partnership for the Cybertruck and you could get it wrapped directly from the factory. Even better if they got to extend this to PPF for the other models, the ones with paint, hehe.

Cheap door seals reduce Model 3 noise and dirty door sills

There’s been a lot of controversy about if these door seals reduce the road noise or not. LivingTesla has ran an experiment and posted the results for all us to know.

Don't forget to change your cabin filter

Tesla recommends replacing your cabin filters after 2 years of use. However, sometimes it needs to be replaced earlier due to a nasty smell (I’ve heard people refer to it both as a vinegar smell and a stinky sock) that is known to appear in the Model 3. And if you happen to be in the market for new filters, I recommend these HEPA cabin filters with activated charcoal to combat bad odors.

For parents with a Model 3: 3 car seats across in the back seat

If you want to install three car seats, you are going to need to secure all of them with the seat belt for them to fit. It will be tight but it can be done, especially if you get European car seats, as cars in Europe are generally a bit smaller. Note: If you are going to install car seats for the first time in your Tesla, I can’t recommend enough for you to use a seat cover as well, this is the one that we use.

Fremont-made Tesla Model Y now equipped with HEPA filters and Bioweapon Defense Mode

All Model Ys built starting on July 1st come with a HEPA filter and Bioweapon mode. According to a tweet from @SawterMerritt, Tesla will also offer an option to retrofit it into existing Model Ys soon. Living in California, where we get more and more wildfires every year, this is great news!

Model Y pop open mount for the tow hitch

I thought this was a really ingenious idea and wanted to share it (sorry, you need to be a member of the Facebook group to be able to watch this video). This Tesla owner used the cover of the tow hitch to be able to remove it without the tools. The mount is held by two magnets and pops out when you press it.

From issue #155

Model Y power frunk

One of the best places to transport food in your Tesla is the frunk because it contains odors. And one of the best ways to avoid getting your dirty fingers all over your frunk is with this power frunk accessory. This is a very popular accessory amongst Tesla owners and now it’s available for the Model Y as well.

From issue #148

New 2021 Model 3 came with a flash drive pre-installed in the glovebox

New rear liftgate sunshade for the Model Y

Tesla has added a rear liftgate sunshade for the Model Y. It is constructed of lightweight fabric with a collapsible rigid frame so you can fit it in the included pouch as well as Tesla says rearward visibility is not compromised but blocks 2/3 of solar thermal load. I wonder if this would be needed for the folks in the 3rd row of the Y.

We recently installed the Chrome Delete kit in our Model S- we’ll be publishing an article soon- and couldn’t be happier about it, it looks amazing! I’m not going to lie, it takes patience. But once you get the hang of it, smoothing the vinyl almost becomes therapeutic.

Quick bandit for Model 3/Y & HEPA filter bundle

“Quick Bandit” is a Tesla front license plate bracket that can be installed and removed in seconds. It’s been very successful with the Model 3 and now it’s also available for the Model Y. Made in California by @tonytesla4life, a member of the Tesla community who we’ve had the pleasure of meeting IRL and we love working with. If you happen to be in the market for a front license plate bracket and also need to change your cabin air filters (or are going to have to do it soon), get the bundle and save $20. (Or you can also get the HEPA cabin air filters separately and watch @Seasonedtech replace them in under 4 minutes!).

Small lock hole on 'circuit electrique' plugs

Nice idea to avoid strangers to unplug cars from L2 chargers. I just wish it would be less complicated (you need to have a lock with you) and not that easy to mess with the charger (lock it when not in use, lock it when plugged in someone else’s car, etc.).

Tesla all-weather mats for Model S at half the price

We recently bought these set of mats for the trunk and we’re so happy with the purchase. They seem to come directly from Weathertech (the company that manufactures them for Tesla) and they cost only $135 (they cost $200 if you buy them on the Tesla website). As you can see they look legit and they fit perfectly. If you are in the market for some all-weather mats now that winter is coming, these are great ones.

I love the creativity of the Tesla community, this Tesla owner has designed his own Tesla tailgating table with an umbrella and everything.

Tesla update lets you lock Sentry Mode/TeslaCam storage in glovebox

Tesla recently introduced ‘Glovebox PIN’ to secure access to it with a 4-digit pin. As part of the Model 3 2021 refresh, Tesla is also planning on updating the interior of the car to get a USB port on the top left corner of the glovebox. Together, these changes will allow owners to securely lock their Sentry Mode/TeslaCam storage device in the glovebox. Very cool!

For current Model 3 and Model Y owners, you still have the option to get the Jeda USB hub, which enables you to hide the storage device in a hub that seems part of the car and also gives you extra USB ports.

The details of Model Y's HEPA filters

According to this Redditor the Model Y’s HEPA filter has two layers , the top layer is like the filter in Model 3 and the bottom layer is HEPA with plastic case. This is, as someone pointed out in the comments, a pretty clever idea since the first filter, most likely cheaper to replace, would clean the air before the HEPA filter, and that way I assume it will increase the lifetime of the HEPA filter.

Transitioning to Tesla Vision

We knew Tesla was ditching radar in their rewrite of FSD Beta but we didn’t anticipate them removing it from cars as early as this month. In this support article, Tesla announced “Beginning with deliveries in May 2021, Model 3 and Model Y vehicles built for the North American market will no longer be equipped with radar. Instead, these will be the first Tesla vehicles to rely on camera vision and neural net processing to deliver Autopilot”.

The downside? New cars will have a limited version of AP at first, Autosteer will be limited to a maximum speed of 75 mph, and Smart Summon and Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance may be disabled at delivery.
