Could be a controversial topic. :) So I'm just asking YES or NO?
My answer: YES.

If my seats were leather I’d be equally as happy. Just love the cars!

I mean, I've never *seen* my Tesla eat meat.
My Tesla has been eating a lot of bugs in the last month or so. I feel really bad about this but there's nothing I can do about it. We have minimum speed limits around here so, even if I had all the time in the world, it's not like I could drive everywhere at 8 or 10 mph! I take solace knowing that most of the electricity around here is not derived from dinosaurs. On the other hand, I think a few birds die in wind generators and a few fish die trying to get past the hydro dams so I guess I won't be going to vegan heaven. But that's ok, I understand they have really good ribs in the underworld.:tonguewink:

If this, or any other car maker, offered only leather interiors it would be a deal breaker for me.
Even if the slaughter industries are of no concern (and for most folks they are obviously not - even though they are arguably worse than the petro-industries) then a quick look at the leather tanning industry might convince?

Business opportunity! Invent a pillowy forcefield thing that moves all the bugs and little stones away before they hit! Come on Elon - I know your physics-oriented mind is intrigued already! :)

As far as "vegan heaven" is concerned, I wouldn't worry. I'd worry more about being reincarnated in slaughterhouse hell. Those "good ribs" might be your own, pecked at by... I don't know... chickens? :) As you can see, we vegans are a fun-loving bunch too.

I think I am.

You think right! As long as you're in your Tesla and not eating meat, you and your Tesla are one - one vegan entity.
Once you leave your Tesla, that's probably when your downfall happens. :)

PNWmisty, it appears that you may be among the 85% minority(according to the poll).;);)

>>Are you a vegan Tesla owner?

Technically, I think my Tesla is in a grey zone. Other than the aforementioned bugs on the grill, it hasn't yet gone hunting for flesh. It has, with it's fairly low clearance however, tasted the flesh of other car's kills a few times. And, given that Autopilot seems to have no interest in avoiding future "tasting opportunities" - I'm thinking it might well be developing carnivore tendencies. (Seems particularly interested in Racoon.)

I don't know how to interpret this question.

* Are you asking about the vehicle or the owner themselves?
* Do people who haven't gotten their cars yet but own TSLA stock ("Tesla owners") count? ;)

I'm 99.999999% sure he's asking about the owner. All Model 3's are the same (at least up to now) as far as their vegan-ness. They aren't vegan due to their steering wheel cover for one thing. There are also most likely some animal-based adhesives in the car as well. :(

There was at least for a while an "off the menu" vegan steering wheel option.
