Tesla is offering wraps for its vehicles and this is something people have wondered about for a long time, including me.
I once wrote about an iridescent Tesla a couple of years ago, and it was a unique wrap. Many people like to wrap their Tesla vehicles as it makes them stand out and look different.
Tesla is offering 6 wrap colors and here they are with their price. Note, these wraps will be offered AFTER the vehicle is purchased:
* Satin Stealth Black: $7,500
* Glacier Blue: $8,000
* Satin Rose Gold: $8,000
* Slip Grey: $7,500
* Forest green: $8,000
* Satin Ceramic White: $8,000
* Crimson Red: $8,000
A wrap differentiates your Tesla vehicle from others and protects it from debris on the road. A wrap typically will last a long time, usually about 5 to 7 years according to most sources. Tesla may even do their wraps to last even longer.

Tesla is also offering PPF, which stand for paint protection film. This is a layer of protection on a Tesla that protects it from rocks and other debris that might strike it while driving or otherwise.
The options and prices for this are:
* Clear Gloss: $5,000
* Clear Satin: $5,000
Features of PPF are:
* Self-heals with an urethane-based film
* Protects paint against chips, scratches and swirling
* Friendly to the environment more than traditional vinyl wraps
Tesla says that when you wrap your Model 3 or Model Y in one of their premium clear films, you can only get these available through Tesla. The clear PPF will give your paint a glossy finish, and the clear satin will change your paint's gloss finish to matte.
I think both of these things are a good move for Tesla as they continue to vertically integrate more and more. They are bringing everything in-house.
I think custom jobs of wraps and PPF will still have a market - anything with images or a unique style will still be able to do wraps, but those who do wraps that are simply a color will need to differentiate themselves.
