    Tesla to phase out grey seats soon –Insider

    [​IMG]

    ElonsVelvetJacket strikes again! According to the anonymous poster in Reddit’s r/teslamotors forum, Tesla will be removing the grey seats from the studio configurator. Usually he’s a day or so ahead of the game.

    Not huge news but if you fancied grey seats to go along with your unlimited charging, you might want to make a move soon. Here’s my handy $1000 off link.

    In case it disappears:

      Seems like Tesla is streamlining their options list these days. With this and the elimination of the two paint options recently I wonder if they have any plans to replace them with other colors at some point.

        How many are left and which ones do you think are missing the most, Dan?

        The Titanium and base white are no longer available. There are seven colors available at this point. I really liked the Titanium but if it wasn't profitable for them then I can understand the discontinuation. Many have speculated about new colors that might be added at some point. Nothing official yet but there have been several posts and articles about their experimentation with other colors.

        Thanks, Dan. Just refreshed my memory on the 7 colors on the MS/MX Design Studio. Yeah, all very classic stuff which is probably OK for this class of cars.
        As for MODEL ≡, they may be looking at expanding into some more fresh looking via colors for those who are not afraid to stand out... though again, in the spirit of 'streamlining' :)p) I'd be surprised if they would offer more than 10 colors at launch... In any case, for now my heart remains set on Midnight Silver, yet this is another example of the principle of 'to each, her/his own'... :)

        Happy Friday!

        Personally, I would love the bright white seats the Model X has along with the blue paint on my Model 3.

        I did consider the white seats but my wife wants nothing to do with them. She much prefers the grey ones we tried in the P90D.

        Plenty of evidence that the white seats are super soft and easy to clean but they do get dirty quickly and are prone to blue jean transfer. If we can get seats in that material but in grey then hey, problem solved ! :)

          After ivory white in my X5, I can totally confirm the jean transfer ... disastrous! Most likely will go back to a safe black (hopefully leather) which should be quite ok with the Midnight Silver exterior.... I like the blue yet not sure I could take it for 10 years +...
          Funny (and rich!) how tastes can be diverse... Makes for a more colorful world!! :)

          Fresh, complementary info.
          What I read here confirms points made above, interior & exterior configurations will continue to fluctuate/evolve, presumably based on demand...
          As said many times, hopefully someone in T≡SLA'S Mktg Dept is keeping track of (some...) what is being said on this space so don't hesitate to continue to express your desires!! :)
