2013 Tesla Model S: Durable Interior
June 12, 2014
While there are mixed opinions about the style and practicality of some features on the interior of our long-term 2013 Tesla Model S, the materials are certainly durable. After 16 months in our fleet and nearly 23,000 miles on the odometer, our Tesla's interior surfaces are holding up well.
The driver's seat has no stains like you'd typically see on a light-colored interior, and minimal wear on the seams where you enter and exit the car.
The rear seat is tip-top with no discoloring, tears, or wrinkles.
The steering wheel has no cracking or fading.
The door panels are in great condition as well. The driver's side armrest has a few markings that will likely come out with upholstery conditioner and some elbow grease, but the passenger side is clean and clear.
Whatever your opinion may be about the rest of the Model S, its interior is made of sturdy materials.
