Cringefest: Tesla’s White Seats vs. Glass Of Red Wine (Video)

Our friend Vincent regularly tweets about all things Tesla, and as a Model 3 owner, he also recently took to YouTube to show how the white seats in his Model 3 hold up to a glass of admittedly cheap red wine. To make it even more interesting, he enlisted his child to come do the clean-up, and the results are impressive.

Our friend Vincent regularly tweets about all things Tesla, and as a Model 3 owner, he also recently took to YouTube to show how the white seats in his Model 3 hold up to a glass of admittedly cheap red wine. To make it even more interesting, he enlisted his child to come do the clean-up, and the results are impressive. (Note: We covered a separate video highlighting the durability of these white vegan seats against wine in December, but this is yet another impressive test.)

After pouring nearly an entire glass of red wine onto the bright white seat in his Tesla Model 3, Vincent turns the show over to his son, who takes to cleaning up the mess with a fervor that results in red wine splashing painfully over the seat and seat belt. Cleanup continues with a few more sheets of paper towels. It ends with a quick wipe-down with a wet cloth and reveals what looks to be a perfectly clean white seat.

The white vegan leather interior option became something of a phenomenon after Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted out that it was his favorite option, one item on a list of his favorite configuration options. For parents like myself, the prospect of a white interior invokes involuntary cringes, and many critics brought up valid concerns of early white Tesla interiors showing more than their fair share of wear. Elon responded with a claim that Tesla would add a layer of backing material to the white seats at no charge for existing owners.

Since Elon’s coming out about the white interior, it has held a special place in the configurations of Tesla owners around the world and comes with a certain status of those who know why it’s special.

Getting back to Vincent and the potential red stains on his pristine white seats, they came out of the ordeal unscathed, demonstrating that Elon’s claims about the white interior having fantastic stain resistance continue to hold true in the Tesla Model 3. Watch the full video below.
