Tesla Unveils Vegan-Friendly Car

It seems that Tesla has knuckled under to the pressure from vegans demanding the company offer non-leather interior options. The company now offers an option for synthetic leather seats or, as we used to call it in the old days, pleather.

One proposal called for the company to stop using animal-based products, the other aimed to decrease the use of the products over time. "We find that customers enjoy both leather and nonleather options for their Teslas," Khobi Brooklyn, a company spokeswoman, tells the NYT. "We are committed to giving customers the ability to build the Tesla that meets their needs and lifestyle choices."
