    More Seat Options

    Note that all the premium seats were two-tone style with black outer parts and color in the middle. This led to a minor revolt on the Owner's Forum, as a lot of people had seen the prototypes with the basic, solid-colored seats, and By Gum that was what they wanted! Plus, they still wanted the perforated leather and stitched logo that come on the premium seats.

    As a result, Tesla went back to their seat supplier and worked out more options for premium seats in solid colors. I haven't seen those yet.

    I'm not sure about the difference between standard and premium seats, aside from the obvious. . . color, perforated leather, and stitched Tesla logo. Keep in mind that all the Founders Series and Signature One Hundred series cars will come with premium seats, so the basic standard seats won't even be going into production for a while. They may not even be finalized yet.

    Sweet! Thanks for that, Tony. Looks like they come with the old air bladder with sygmomanometer type bulb for lumbar support. Didn't think I'd be seeing those again.
