Tesla makes all seat options vegan

Tesla has dropped leather seats entirely from its range of car seats with immediate effect.

All reference to leather seats have been removed from the website, and all upgraded interiors are now referred to as Tesla’s “premium” range, which they applied to the original launch of vegan seats made of a new synthetic material.

The cars still come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard according to Electrik magazine, so to purchase a fully vegan car Tesla will provide a non-leather steering wheel upon request.

As animal agriculture is a leading cause of climate change then this decision further strengthens Tesla’s position as the most environmentally-friendly and forward thinking car company.
