    Can anyone find a time frame for the vegan version of the Model 3? I can now configure but there is no vegan option yet. I called Tesla Sales line but they didn't know. I even joined Twitter, followed Elon, and tweeted on the remote chance he might respond.

    I have been asking what those vegan seats are really made out of and haven't been given a clear answer.

    I think they are made out of recycled plastic which doesn't eat anything.

    But some folks are suggesting sea weed , kelp, tumbleweeds, even hemp.

    If you can find out.

    Please let us know.

    I definitely know what leather seats are made of.. at least on the surface.

    Thanks

    Interesting...

    A wonderful description of the product and uses.

    But no actual components are listed.

    What chemicals are used?

    What is the base composition and raw material sourced?

    While carbon neutral may be a plus, anything considered faux is usually made from oil based plastics or other refuse..

    I'd prefer tumbleweed myself.

    Thanks!

    According to my search...

    Alcantara is composed of about 68% polyester and 32% polyurethane, giving increased durability and stain resistance. The appearance and tactile feel of the material is similar to that of suede, and it may be identified as such.
    Alcantara (material) - Wikipedia

    OIL BASED PRODUCT

    HOW CAN THEY CLAIM CARBON FREE?

    RECYCLED.

    BASE ELECTRIC OR ENERGY SOURCE TO PRODUCE?

    LIKELY METHANE

    This process probably makes more and uses more methane than cows farting.

    I am unmoved off my leather.
