3 Tips You Should Know to Protect Your New Tesla

The day you decide to purchase your first Tesla thrusts you into an innovative new movement that is guaranteed to transform the auto industry as we now know it. While you’re over the moon about your new investment, you might be worrying about how you’re going to protect it.

By now, you’ve probably heard the horror stories that Tesla cars are prone to paint scratches. And this is true. Due to their eco-friendly water-based VOC-compliant emissions-regulated paint, a Tesla’s paint is more susceptible to damage from outside elements, such as tree sap, bird bombs, and watermarks.

But don’t fret! We’ve got you covered. Here are three ways you can efficiently keep your new Tesla looking flawless.

1.Paint Protection Film

Paint protection film (PPF), also known as a clear bra, is a transparent, flexible film that is applied directly over your Tesla’s paint. This clear film acts as a protective barrier and shields your car from scratches, swirl marks, chips, and more. PPF is commonly applied to high impact areas of your car. However, at American Wrap Company, we offer different protection packages that are tailored to safeguard specific areas of concern. 

Compared to other cars, Teslas have blunt front ends. The grille takes up most of the front bumper. With so much of the front end paint exposed to damaging road debris, we highly recommend protecting your Tesla’s front bumper with PPF.

2. Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating is another efficient way to preserve your Tesla for years to come. This clear coating is applied to your vehicle’s exterior. When applied, the liquid polymer in the coating chemically bonds with your Tesla’s factory paint. This provides an additional layer of protection against UV rays, scuffs, and scratches. Moreover, the ceramic coating adds depth and boosts shine and surface clarity, making the paint pop.

3. Window Film

While PPF and ceramic coating can protect your Tesla’s exterior, how do you go about protecting the inside? Don’t tell Elon we said this, but a huge drawback to a new Tesla’s shiny glass windows is that it lets enormous amounts of UV rays in, wreaking havoc on the interior and depreciating your car’s resale value. Not only will all of that heat make your car feel like a sauna on a hot summer day, but it can also cause your seats and dashboard to fade and crack over time.

A great solution for keeping UV rays at bay is to install automotive window film in your Tesla. At American Wrap Company, we exclusively use XPEL Prime XR Plus to ensure the best UV protection possible. Not only will our film protect your Tesla’s vegan leather interior, but it will make your car look super sharp.

To increase the window tint’s efficiency, park your car in shaded areas on sunny days. 

Additional Tips to Consider

Here are some other effective ways to protect your Tesla:

  • Invest in durable, weather liner floor mats. 
  • Hand wash your Tesla instead of taking it to a drive-thru commercial car wash.
  • Park your vehicle in a garage whenever possible.
