    Hi!

    I will be taking delivery of a new Model X in a couple of weeks and wanted to confirm if sunshades are included? I saw in one of the Model X delivery checklists from the forums that it is included now? Can anyone confirm?

    Thanks!

    Yes I received one with my X when I took delivery in late July.

    Thanks!
    Sunshades are only for US cars, or also for European?
    As we are going to pick up ours today :)

    What I got in the frunk was the ‘overhead’ sunshade for the windshield, just to be clear. Which is perfect, since I ordered a ‘normal’ sunshade for the ‘normal’ windshield to keep the sun out when parked.

    Yups also the European Model X is delivered with the overhead sunshade. (The rear windows are very dark tinted)

    You need to check with the sunshade captain to validate :)

    Can't believe I am not the first to respond to this thread!

    Your car should have a sunshade somewhere (trunk compartment/frunk). Early owners like myself had to wait several weeks for the sunshade...and you can always pick up a heat shield if you need something solid (not mesh) like the Tesla shade.

    Seriously, we need different terms for the ‘net cut down on light’ ones Tesla gives you/sells for all the overhead windows and the ones you can get for the windshields that we all have had for our old cars (and these) that are solid material/foil coated/whatever.

    Maybe one is a ‘shade’ (overhead) and the solid windshield one is a ‘shield’? As you say, the front one is ‘heat shield’ also...

    I don’t really care about sunshades that cover the lower part of the Tesla windshield (or pretty much the entire windshield on every other car). I only care about the overhead protection, the heat shield I use covers the overhead area. Take a look at this:
