You can now upgrade and purchase rear heated seats for the Tesla Model 3 SR and SR+ [Update]

Tesla heated rear seats

The Tesla Model 3 Standard Range (SR) and Standard Range Plus (SR+) both come with the Partial Premium interior, which means no rear heated seats, despite all the equipment being there.

Save with big discounts at your favourite Tesla accessories stores, like 10% off at Tesmanian, TesBros and Nikola Pro, plus many more. Coupon codes at DriveTeslaCanada.ca/deals.

Late last year Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to an owner’s request on Twitter asking for an upgrade to purchase the ability to use the rear heated seats in the SR+ and partial premium interior, simply responding “Sure”.

 

With most of Canada is in a frigid cold snap right now, the day has come and you can now purchase the upgrade to have rear heated seats, and for a decent price too.

Get 10% off at Tesloid.ca or Tesloid.com with coupon code DTC10 at checkout. Quality Tesla accessories with FREE shipping across Canada and the US.

Available in the Tesla Mobile App and in your Tesla account online, the upgrade is available for a one-time purchase of just $400 CAD ($300 USD).

This will be a welcome addition to many SR and SR+ owners, and another revenue source for Tesla made available with the click of a button. It may also help with efficiency and improved range as now the passengers in the back can be kept warm via the heated seats, instead of using the HVAC system which sucks up much more energy than the seat heaters.

Are you going to purchase the upgrade? Let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: After purchasing the upgrade (which is also eligible for a refund), the instructions say to connect your car to WiFi and it will be updated. Mine was connected to WiFi in my garage and updated almost immediately.
