Everyone knows that heat shields for your windshield are a must-buy — especially if you live in warmer climates or are commonly parking in direct sunlight. Whether it’s because you need to keep your electronics (SSD storage, anyone?) in working order or just keep your seats cool in the summer, keep your new Tesla comfortable and preserve its interior from the harsh sun with one of our heat shield picks.

Sumk Glass Roof Sun Shade for Model 3

Electrek’s pick.

The huge glass roof atop your Tesla is great for maximizing your view while driving, and it can be a surreal experience for anyone that has never driven a car with a glass roof before, but practically speaking, it can be a bit much. That’s why we picked out a few sun shades for your new Tesla to tamper down the sun.

This basic sun shade for Tesla Model 3 comes in two main pieces — one for the rear window and one for the glass roof overhead.
