    When I got my Model S last October, we had a problem. I wanted to keep the interior nice and my wife wanted to be able to let our dog come along with us on our newly-encouraged adventures. She solved the problem by creating something we call the BackMat. I posted these photos at post 800 under Owners Delivery Stories, Photos, and First Impressions, letting folks know that Roseanne was willing to make a few more BackMats for Model S owners.

    Here are the specs on this product: Tesla Model S BackMat :
    Custom made durable cargo area carpet liner and protector
    Precisely fits back cargo compartment of Tesla Model S with seats up or down
    High quality polyester fiber made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles
    Tough but light weight indoor-outdoor carpet
    Mold, mildew, and stain resistant
    Excellent color-fastness and UV protection
    Vacuum or shake out, rinse with a hose, spot clean with mild detergent, air dry
    Self adhering to Tesla's carpet with velcro-like attachments at strategic points
    Easily allows vehicle seats to be moved up or down without repositioning the BackMat
    Priced at $100 plus shipping (estimated $15) and available in split seat style (to allow only one seat down) for additional $10

    If any TMC members are interested in this solution to how to keep the Model S pristine while still taking your canine friend along, you can e-mail [email protected].

    Here is one more picture of the BackMat made in a taupe color: IMG_3994-1.jpg

    After setting this thread up, I just discovered that Tesla has created a weatherproof mat for the back cargo area (now out of stock) that sells for $200. It will be a better solution for those who need a waterproof mat and do not need coverage to the sides of the compartment. The advantage of our BackMat solution is that it covers the sides of the cargo area (protecting from dog hair) and the backs of the second row seats so that they can be folded down for larger cargo area that is also covered. It is also a bit less expensive. Our BackMat allows easy access to the side cubbies and the rear trunk well.

    This looks like an incredible product deserving of a bump! I found this thread doing a search for liners as I carry my mountain bike in the back of my Model S and would like to protect the interior. Are you still making these?

    Pretty sweet. Might get more traffic in the For Sale section.

    Is it possible to get it in a black fabric that matches the interior? If so, we'd be interested in getting one.

    Interested but suggestion: Can you create a folding lip that lays flat but can be folded out to cover the rear bumper. This way, when the dog jumps in, there's no risk of scratching? Could also be helpful if loading or unloading objects that might scratch the exposed surface along the entrance. As it is now, it's great protection for when the dog is already in the car, but not getting in and out.

    The answer is yes. I bought mine about 3 days after posting that and got it a few weeks later. Works really well and my dogs love it :)

    You have to email her, she doesn't check the forums apparently.
