Ask Tesla to Go Vegan!

Seating options

No way. The whole point of this is to get the general public to adopt electric vehicles. If you turn it into some hippie vegan love car you're going to turn off a lot of people. It's all about the numbers.

Here's what I found

I have been browsing Tesla Motors' web site with an interest of someday buying a Model S. On the Model S Design Studio, where you can browse through and pick your desired options, I have found that leather seating is actually an optional upgrade. Standard cloth seating, called simply "Textile" on that page, is the standard seating material.

I have been looking around on Tesla's website with an interest in someday buying a Model S. On the Model S Design Studio page, I have found that leather is actually only an optional upgrade! The standard seat covering is some kind of fabric that page identified only as "Textile." If I see a Tesla Model S in person, I'll check out their standard Textile seat covering to see exactly what it is.

Sorry about the duplicate

This computer, or maybe it's the Internet, is being a complete jerk. It led me to believe my first comment's transmission failed. So I tried again, and it suddenly decides to go ahead and post both AT THE SAME TIME!!!

If you want something rather then leather ask them for this!

If you want something else rather then leather don't ask them to put micro fiber in your car instead how about plant based plastics as you know plant based plastics aren't made with petroleum so ask Tesla for that option instead as you know Ford is already putting it in there Ford Focus Electric and Tesla should as well with there Model S too. Who agrees with me!

Leather is NOT an Option!

I agree. Using leather is not a proper environmental choice. Any car with leather is a deal-killer for me, especially if they don't give you an alternative. (I don't eat animals, and avoid buying leather products, so I don't support it's use in cars, of all things). The plant-based fabric is excellent, and materials like it should be the only ones considered for the educated, forward-thinking, conscientious consumer.
