Essential accessories for Tesla owners

Once you have bought your Tesla there are a number of essential accessories that may be prudent to buy, including those to deal with punctures, charging, security and maintaining the car. We list them here together with the reason why, alternatives if there are any and a handy link to where you can get them.

Dealing with flat tyres

Your Tesla will not come with a spare tire/tyre, nor does it come with run flat tires/tyres, so if you get a puncture you are potentially stuck. Tesla offer a service where they will tow you up to 50 miles and possibly bring you a replacement wheel if you're near a service centre, but this has a couple of problems. Firstly, you may be over 50 miles from anywhere you know, and secondly, tire places close overnight which is when you most want to get somewhere safely. And if the puncture is a slow one, all you may really need is a 5 mins of an air compressor to top up the pressure.

Keeping things clean on the outside

Your car means a lot to you and for many owners a Tesla represents the most expensive car they may have purchased, so keeping it clean and protected seems a natural thing to do. We've written a guide to how we do it that balances looking after the car and making it reasonably efficient, and these are the products we recommend.

Keeping things clean on the inside

Its not just the inside of the car that needs looking after. Whether its dirty boots or pets, here are some ideas.


Tesla security is pretty good with pin to drive and the ability to track your car from the phone app, however it is not fool proof and additional security measures may be worth taking. Cars equipped with sentry mode also need a suitable storage device as many cheap memory sticks are just not up to the job.


Your car will come with pretty much everything you need to charger the car, but there are occasions when you may need a helping hand. The most typical is when using the universal mobiles charger or UMC and you need a longer reach to get to a socket. Here are some suggestions.


And finally here are a few more items that you might just like. Whether its gifts for people or accessories we just couldn't place in one of our other categories! We trust you find them useful suggestions:
