Tesla Model S Interior Flawed: Here Are The Fixes

NOV 12 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 8

How does the Tesla Model S cabin really stack up?

It appears that our good buddy Sean Mitchell has been really ramping up his YouTube coverage as of late. He has been doing his homework and helping all Tesla owners by sharing about the Tesla Model 3 and Model X, even though he’s not an owner of those cars as of yet. Now, he’s back to providing information to Tesla Model S owners, which is his initial turf and obvious specialty.

Sean has owned his Tesla Model S for some time and is toying with the idea of taking advantage of his Model 3 reservation or going “huge-plunge-mode” and buying a new or used Tesla Model X.

At any rate, after living with the used Model S for a long time and spending a ton of time in it, Sean is not so happy with its center console, interior storage cubby, and lack of coat hooks. Well, he’s ordered and used some of these items from another company (which he says he may review in the future), but thanks to EVANNEX, he’s got himself a whole new arsenal of aftermarket equipment that may solve all of his problems.

Check out the video above to see the items and their application. Then, lets us know your experiences and thoughts in the comment sections below.

Thanks, Sean!

Ohh 😮 big advertisement

Wow, an article on coat hooks.

Yes, and it’s about time. The lack of coat hooks, grab handles and door pockets have been the biggest complaints from owners for years. In all that time, critics went on rants about everything from range anxiety to charging time. When owners pointed out that those weren’t real world problems, critics started yelling “fanboy” as if you can’t take the word of someone who likes something.

The point is that owners have always had lots of things to complain about but they are things that make a real world difference, not irrational fears of someone who never drove a Tesla.

That center console really kick some ass. The rest is just cheap BS.

Argh, I have grown to love the Model 3 interior. I don’t like the antiquated looking interiors anymore. 🙂

The Swiss made E-captain cubby delete center console has four large compartments and holds 7 waters, umbrella, emergency jump starter plugged in USB, binoculars, inductive pad for phone charging, screen wipe cloth, coin box, LED headlight plugged in USB.
Both OEM and Evannex suffer from poor space management, the emphasis is on the slurpacino.

The Model 3 interior has “a few” flaws: (1) they need to replace the auto-blinding rear view mirror with one that actually dims when the jerk behind you is using his high beams; (2) heated steering wheel (normal gloves isn’t a good work-around when EVERYTHING is controlled on the touchscreen; (3) no simple way to momentarily turn off lights when signalling to a fellow motorist or when running over a deer (If you turn your lights off and honk your horn the deer will run, but he’ll just stand there and stare into your headlights otherwise, thus the saying); (4) bluetooth unlocks the car most of the time, but rarely can I make and take calls over bluetooth; (5) what 5-year-old designed the music player??? I could go on. What flaws have you observed?

The Evannex center console seems too cheap to interest me. There are better consoles out there. Superficially it fits the decor, but I think carbon fiber is more upscale and befitting of a $70,000 car. Also, where is the cellphone cradle and charging support?
