Last month, for the first time in the US, Tesla launched a vehicle wrap service. In a post announcing this offer, Tesla wrote “Wrap your Model 3 or Model Y in one of our premium color wraps, only available through Tesla. Offered in seven exclusive colors, this self-healing urethane-based film protects the paint beneath from chips, scratches, and swirling.”
Tesla offers wrap services at two price points. The two new color wrap options, Satin Stealth Black and Slip Grey cost $7,500, and the remaining 5 color options, Glacier Blue, Satin Rose Gold, Forest Green, Satin Ceramic White, and Crimson Red all cost $8,000.

These are certainly pricy paint options however, in Tesla’s defense, the paint options are not merely vinyl wraps but rather colored PPF which serve a dual purpose as a new paint job and a protection film.
Taking this into consideration, Tesla’s quoted prices for this service are inline or slightly cheaper than similar services offered by third-party detailing shops.
Having said that, Tesla started offering this service back on October 10 and a month later the EV maker appears to have wrapped the first Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in the 7 new colors.
X user and Tesla driver, eugenelee3 recently spotted a truckload of wrapped Model 3s & Y going towards Tesla’s Texas factory. The truck appears to be carrying most of if not all of the new paint colors.
This on its own is exciting however, the fact that the truck is shipping the vehicles to Giga Texas also gives us a hint at what sorts of items Tesla is planning to display during the Cybertruck delivery event.
Tesla has already confirmed that the Cybertruck delivery event will take place in Giga Texas on November 30. The fact that these vehicles are being shipped to the factory suggests that one of the display items at the event will be showcasing the new Model 3 & Y colors.
This is in line with Tesla events from the past where the EV maker likes to display the company’s upcoming exciting products such as the next generation Roadster and Cyberquad alongside the product that’s being launched.
It’s certainly exciting to see pieces of the Cybertruck delivery event starting to come together however, if the EV maker is shipping these vehicles to Giga Texas, that means it’s unlikely that these vehicles are not intended for customer deliveries.
Currently, we are not sure when Tesla plans to start shipping vehicles with the new wraps to customers however, we’ll be sure to keep you posted when we learn more about Tesla’s plans. Until then, make sure to visit our site torquenews.com/Tesla regularly for the latest updates.
So what do you think? Excited to see the 7 new Tesla Model 3 & Y colors out in the wild? Also, do you think Tesla will display these vehicles during the Cybertruck delivery event? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
