Cup holders and USB everywhere! This is Tesla’s new ‘Model S Integrated Center Console’ with optional ‘Quick Connection Phone Dock’ – now available has an aftermarket option. Earlier this year, we reported on Tesla introducing the center console as a default option in the Model S, like it already was in the Model X, for new orders.
Now pre-March 2016 Model S owners can order the console directly from Tesla Gear’s website for $1,250 including installation. The item will be shipped to your local service center and you will need to make an appointment since it needs to be installed by a Tesla technician.
The company lists the console’s features:
- Integrated side panels with contrasting stitching
- Single piece sliding cover in Mammoth Black with one-touch-to-close operation
- Magnetically secured flip-up deck with rubber grips and USB/power-cord pass-through
- Removable, curved dividers to customize the space for your personal needs (drink storage, wallet, sunglasses, etc.)
- Retractable rear cup holders that can hold up to two standard cups
- Can accommodate the installation of the new phone dock, which features guide blocks for a perfect and secure fit
Tesla is selling the ‘Quick Connection Phone Dock’ separately for $50 and it is only for the new integrated console. It is not compatible with the previous drop-in Premium Center Console. Tesla’s product description:
