Tesla Model 3 and Model Y go fully vegan next year

A while back, Tesla shifted all of their seat options to “Tesla Synthetic Material” which is not animal sourced, and therefore vegan.  But there’s still one non-vegan material in Teslas: the steering wheel.

While it’s possible for customers to order a car with a custom vegan steering wheel, this is an off-menu item and Teslas do not come standard with it.  Vegan customers often don’t know about this option, and will end up driving a car with a leather steering wheel because of it.  Some don’t mind, but some do.  And today, Tesla announced that the Model Y and Model 3 will both be entirely vegan, including the steering wheel, next year.
