Vegan Vehicles: Tesla goes leather-free for its Model 3

What’s Tesla’s latest trick to help protect the planet?

Making a luxury vehicle free of a leather interior.

The electric vehicle maker recently announced the big change.

“Model 3 interior is now 100% leather-free 🐄,” the car company tweeted.

And yes, it includes the steering wheel.

Tesla, and its CEO Elon Musk, have been making strides in this direction.

Tesla brought in synthetic leather option in vehicles back in 2016.

The company has also vowed that its forthcoming Model Y will also be fully vegan when it debuts in 2020.
