What are air filters?
Air filters are a particular piece of equipment that are designed to prevent pollen, road dust, impurities, and other particles from entering the cabin through the vents. This can significantly improve the air quality in your Tesla Model 3, for a healthier, happier drive.
However, an air filter works by trapping these small particles between the high-quality filter cloths and the activated carbon. This means that over time your filter will become clogged and need to be changed and replaced.
