SAN FRANCISCO: Last year, Tesla launched a set of all-weather Model 3 floor mats floor whose design and price tag were easily outshined by third-party vehicle accessory manufacturers.
Over the weekend, as spotted by Electrek, the company released a new set of mats with a refreshed design just in time for rainy and snowy autumn weather.
Like the set that was released in 2018, these weather-proof mats are made completely of recyclable materials and are cadmium-, lead-, latex-, and PVC-free. On the other hand, these liners feature structured walls to keep dirt, water, and other debris from reaching the Tesla's carpet interior.
Compared to last year's version, these mats are US$50 (RM210) more, settling in at US$195 (RM816); however, flat liners typically retail for less than US$60 (RM251) by third-party vendors.
Structured mats that more properly protect the vehicle available from non-Tesla brands are usually priced around US$200 (RM837), making Tesla's version quite competitive for the first time.
