Even though it is still unseasonably warm here in Southern California, the holidays are nearly upon us. For many of us, the holidays are an excuse to purchase celebratory gifts for our loved ones (and ourselves) … and what better things to buy than a few accessories for your EV.
The folks over at EV Items* are kicking the season off with a bang and are starting their Cyber Monday sale early for CleanTechnica readers using code “CleanTechnica.” You can get 25% off all their accessories (while quantities last), free shipping to North America on orders over $50, and a free Tesla-inspired Starman 1.0 or 2.0 air freshener with any order. As a special bonus, there’s also no need to get up before dawn or wait in lengthy lines — just hop online to order.
Here are a few of our must haves from the sale:
Vegan Model S and X Center Console Cubby Drawer: As one of their flagship items, this center console cubby from EV items has a precise fit and dimensions that create a driver-facing product, optimal for single hand use. It may not be obvious, but the center cubby in yours Model S or X is not a perfect rectangle, it’s a bizarre trapezoid that has been matched perfectly with this drawer. The interior lining is a soft, vegan alcantara while the exterior is a black, vegan “leather” (both cruelty-free). The Model S and X cubby drawer is ideal for loose change, sunglasses, keys, and any small items that might need to be accessed at a moments notice. The silver, anodized aluminum handle is very ‘grab-able’, allowing you to open the drawer without looking. The cubby drawer also includes rubber stoppers that are easily installed to ensure the drawer does not fall out of the compartment while in use. They’re bringing back their limited edition cubby with red lining for the holidays, so you’ll want to get one of those before they sell out again!
Just like the Model S/X cubby, the Model 3 storage cubby uses cruelty-free materials with an alcantara interior and a vegan leather exterior. The interior comes in either black or limited edition red. This console storage cubby from EV items is custom made for the center console area of your Model 3 allowing for optimal fit. It’s ideal for storing small items like keys, coins, and sunglasses. It also comes with a removable divider and features a hand-stitched Model 3 badge on the inside. Also, makes for the perfect gift for a Model 3 owner.
It may not get cold and snowy here in Southern California, but for those of you living in places where it does, EV Items has some new mud flaps for the Model 3 that not only keep debris from slingin’ onto your vehicle, they add a nice pop of customization to the car. Model S owners are not to be left out, as EV Items also has a nice set of durable all-weather floor mats for the Model S to keep the debris coming into the car contained.
That beautiful display in the Model 3 was also left bare from the factory, at least for those who couldn’t resist peeling the protective plastic off. EV Items has your back with a tempered glass screen protector for the Model 3 in both clear and matte.
Having sufficient lighting in your Tesla can be challenging, even with the premium interior lighting options. Bring all the brightness of the super bright LED lights to the Model S, X, or 3 with these carefully curated LED lighting kits. LED lighting has been one of my favorite upgrades in my past vehicles because of the noticeable impact to the day to day vehicle experience. The downside of LED lights is that the right sizes can be hard to find and the quality can be questionable when buying from one of the thousands of suppliers hocking their wares on the interwebs. EV Items makes this easy with lighting kits for each Tesla.
If you want to take lighting to the next level, they also have T Logo welcome lights that cast a familiar logo onto the ground as you walk up. In addition to providing a bit of helpful light when approaching the car, they look really sharp at night.
Not sure what to get your loved ones? Here are a few quick and easy sure-fire gifts for the Tesla drivers in your life. The Model 3 Wireless smart phone charger makes docking and charging compatible phones effortless and gives a nice boost of juice when you’re on the go. Model S and Model X owners can pick up some of EV Items’ aluminum key fob covers that give the key fob a nice pop of flair without going overboard.
To take advantage of the early CyberMonday 25% off special, you can visit EVitems website and use the code “CleanTechnica” at checkout!
