Good Window Tint for Tesla Cars DEFINED

There are a few things to keep in mind when considering Tesla window tint. First, not all window tint is created equal—some are better suited for Tesla vehicles than others. Second, the type of tint you choose may vary based on your personal preferences and needs. Here is a closer look at some of the factors that determine a good window tint for Teslas.

Why Is a Window Film Important for Your Tesla?

On a hot summer day in McDonough, a Tesla’s range can decrease by up to 10%. This is because the battery’s temperature management system cools the cabin, even while the vehicle is not in use. While this is an attractive feature, it works by drawing energy from the battery and contributes to the “vampire drain” (or phantom drain) that Tesla owners dread.

Several windows on your Tesla come engineered with a thin strip that acts as a UV protector. However, this structure does not mitigate infrared rays which are responsible for the heat the enters the vehicle’s cabin, causing it to overheat. The Tesla Model X and Model Y vehicles have smoked glass that darkens the appearance of the windows but fails to offer the same heat rejection benefits available via high quality window films.

Window tint is the most effective way to combat the vampire drain that is caused by the vehicle overheating. The window film helps block infrared heat and therefore keeps the car cooler. The film also works while the car is in use by reducing how hard the AC has to work to keep the vehicle at an optimal temperature.

What Is the Best Window Tint for My Tesla?

In years past, you had to darken your windows or use metalized film to reduce heat. In today’s digital world, metalized films can interfere with your GPS, radio, bluetooth and cell phone devices. Clear communication is key.

Thankfully window tint has evolved and new nano-ceramic technology is able to block heat without interfering with the technology in your vehicle.

With nano-ceramic window film, you are even able to block heat without choosing a darker shade of tint. You can choose any level of darkness and still enjoy the best heat rejection benefits in the industry.

XPEL’s XR Plus and XR series are the highest quality ceramic window films on the market. There’s no metal in these films and the multilayer nano-ceramic construction provides ultra-high performance without reducing outbound visibility.

  • These films block 99% of harmful UV rays and are recommended by the skin cancer foundation.
  • The XR series rejects up until 88% of solar heat and the XR Plus series blocks up to 98% of the heat.
  • All XPEL films have a transferable lifetime warranty.

Additional advantages for tinted windows on your Tesla include:

  • Improved privacy and security
  • Ceramic films protect the interior of the vehicle from fading, peeling and cracking.

In short, having ceramic tint installed on your Tesla is one of the smartest upgrades you can make.

When having your Tesla’s windows tinted, make sure you choose a tinting professional who knows how to take the proper precautions to protect your electric vehicle during the installation process. In addition, some vehicles require more advanced install techniques such as the Tesla Model 3 rear glass. Many shops are only able to tint half of the glass but it’s always ideal that the tint go all the way to the top of the glass for a more seamless, factory finish. Tint Genius specializes in tinting the Model 3 back window in one piece. A fully tinted window also maximizes the benefits of your heat rejecting film. The Tesla Model X front windshield and the Tesla Model Y sunroof are additional examples of challenging installs that require more experienced professionals. Tint Genius tints them all!
