With winter in our rear-view mirror, now is the perfect time to start thinking about the upcoming summer, and any plans you may have. With more people than ever before opting for electric vehicles, like the Tesla Model 3, there are now also many more charging stations available publicly. So it’s easier than ever to plan your summer activities. But to keep your Tesla secure and protected during the summer months, there are some accessories you should consider. But how can these help? Well, here at EV Pimp, we are leading experts when it comes to accessories for all manner of electric vehicles, including the Tesla Model 3. And this is our guide to the top accessories you should consider for summer weather.
What are the important Tesla Model 3 accessories for summer weather?
There are several important accessories for the Tesla Model 3 that can be particularly helpful for summer and the associated heat conditions, and activities. These include:
- Sunshades for the windscreen and panoramic glass roof
- Protection for the boot and seats
- Screen protection for the centre console screen
Sunshades for the windscreen and panoramic glass roof
In the warm weather there are two things to consider: the heat in the vehicle while driving, and the effect of the sun when parked.
In the summer weather, it can become quite warm in the vehicle, because of the amplified heat through the panoramic glass roof. So whether you’re driving along the motorway, or around small country lanes, you could find that back of your neck and head becomes uncomfortable. This is where a lightweight, mesh sunshade could be particularly helpful. This will prevent direct sunlight from entering your Tesla Model 3 to reduce the heat and the overhead brightness in your car.
At the same time, frequently parking your vehicle in the sun for long periods of time could also be problematic. Not only can the sun bleach the colour of your seats and dashboard, it can also cause the quality to degrade over time. Extreme heat can also be detrimental to the control electronics and dashboard. A windscreen sun shade can be the perfect solution to help protect your vehicle so it can retain value. This will also hide your valuable from view too.
Protection for the boot and seats
In the summer months your driving trips may be more likely to involve a wider range of locations, from cities and towns, to the countryside or the beach. It is important to keep the inside of your vehicle protected from dirt and mud, and a boot liner and seat covers can be particularly useful for this, especially if you have children or are travelling with pets. These protective accessories can give you the confidence and security to take on summer adventures and make memories, without worrying about the effect to your Tesla Model 3.
Screen protector for the centre console screen
In the sun and warm weather, the visibility of the centre console screen can be negatively impacted by glare and the increased overhead brightness, which then accentuates any smudges and finger prints. The UV rays can also be potentially harmful to the screen itself, if this is exposed for long periods of time. So as well as applying a windscreen sunshade when parking, you should also consider purchasing a screen protector for the centre console screen.
