A new accessory for Tesla vehicles is now available and it attaches to your headrest to help your posture and result in a more comfortable ride.
Update: the product is now sold out. The seller is halting new orders for now.
I ran into Derek Ward from EVPremiumCustoms.com at a Tesla owners event last month and he brought a new product he was launching: custom neck headrest for Tesla vehicles.
The embroidered headrests are made of breathable vegan leather and they easily attach to Tesla’s own headrest.
What we call “headrest” in a car is more of a head-protector since there’s no way to really rest your head on it and be in a comfortable position when driving – and that’s not just in Tesla vehicles but in any car really.
These headrests actually allow you to rest your neck and head on the seat while still maintaining a good posture to drive.
Derek gave me a pair and I tested them out in Jamie’s Model 3:
I liked them a lot. It results in having a much different posture in your seat that I personally feel is more comfortable for both your neck and your whole back.
The cushion helps with the whiplash from the crazy acceleration of Tesla’s vehicles and it’s more comfortable on longer drives on Autopilot (not responsible if you fall asleep, you should always stay alert and vigilant).
It also looks pretty good and like it belongs in a Tesla. Tesla vehicles, especially Model 3, are becoming increasingly popular on the road and it’s nice to make yours a little more unique – while making it more comfortable.
The only thing I wasn’t comfortable with is the $199 price tag for a set of 2, which I think is a bit too expensive.
That said, Derek defended the price by saying that it’s a custom-made product (available in different color combination to match Tesla interior) with embroidery perfection and premium material.
Nonetheless, he agreed to partner with us to give Electrek readers a significant discount on the product.
You can use the discount code ‘ELECTREK’ during checkout on the website to get a 25% discount on your order. That’s a $50 discount on a set of two or a $100 discount on a full set of four headrests.
Update: again, the product is now sold out. The seller is halting new orders for now.
It’s available in several different colors. I think it looks particularly good in the white interior:
