What are the considerations for choosing a windscreen sunshade for the Tesla Model 3?
There are a number of important considerations when choosing the right windscreen sunshade for your Tesla Model 3. These include:
- Material choice
The material choice for your Tesla Model 3 sunshade
Choosing a windscreen sunshade made from the right material is essential. The wrong material can scratch or damage the glass or paintwork around the windscreen, which can be expensive and problematic to rectify. In addition, the wrong type of material will not be as effective at keeping the heat, or light, out of your vehicle on a sunny, bright day. This means that sun and UV damage will simply be delayed, rather than prevented altogether.
Instead, you should consider double bubble foil insulating material. This can reflect up to 95% of solar light, in any conditions, and reduce the temperature in your vehicle by between 20 and 40 degrees! By preventing the harmful UV rays from reaching into your vehicle, this sunshade material can also help to prevent UV damage to seats and the interior of your Tesla Model 3, as well as the centre console and other electrical items. This can not only help to keep your Tesla Model 3 in great condition, it can also help ensure a high resale value.
Consider the storage of your Tesla Model 3 sunshade
While driving, and when parking your Tesla Model 3 during the winter or autumn months, you probably won’t be using the sunshade. So where should you store it? Well, why not choose a foldable sunshade for the windscreen? This can be folded neatly, and stored in the boot or the frunk of the vehicle easily. This also helps to protect the sunshade from any damage while travelling too.
Choose a Tesla Model 3 windscreen sunshade that is easy to install
In addition, you should consider the ease of installation when choosing a windscreen sunshade for the Tesla Model 3. This is because the sunshade needs to be applied and removed as and when necessary, and if you arrive at work, you don’t want to spend a lot of time fitting the sunshade. At the same time, you need be sure that the sunshade will remain in position, and not fall off during the day. An elastic hoop and suction cup system is one of the most effective installation methods, and you can be sure that your windscreen sunshade will stay in place until you decide to remove it.
