Your Tesla Model Y electric vehicle is the car of your dreams, right? If you want to protect your investment as well as the interior of the vehicle, you may want to invest in floor mats for it. The Tesla manufacturer equips the vehicle with carpeted floor mats and while those are all right for the short-term, you just might want an all-weather liner for the Model Y.
Carpeted floor mats are the first line of defense against dirt and debris you track into your vehicle. Think about it though… do you know what’s on the bottom of your shoes? What have you stepped in? If you remove your shoes when you walk into your house because you don’t want unseemly crud tracked into your home and onto your carpets, all-weather floor mats are the way to go.
Best Floor Mats For The Tesla Model Y
Water, snowmelt and spilled coffee can be easily cleaned up and removed from the Model Y if you have all-weather mats but these liquids just aren’t so easily sopped up from a carpeted floor mat.
There may be no reason to cover the Tesla Model Y carpeting in the summer months unless you’re truly prone to spilling in your vehicle, but in the wet and snowy months, it’s probably a good idea.
Shopping guide for Tesla Model Y floor mats
If you’re a Tesla purist you may just want to go right to the source — Tesla — and buy some all-weather floor mats. These all-weather liners are “made from a thermoplastic elastomer material” that has a rigid core that provides a high level of protection as well as “spatial coverage” as noted on the Tesla site.
These mats not only cover the floor but also have vertical walls to protect the footwell carpet. The Model Y All-Weather Interior Liners feature an exclusive grid pattern for easy cleanup. The liners are also 100% recyclable and free of PVC, latex and lead.
