Tesla Launches New & Free ‘All Weather Protection Kit’ for Model 3, New Jersey Is Getting Electrified - This week in Tesla

Tesla’s New ‘All Weather Protection Kit’

Over the years, Tesla has heard more than a few complaints from Model 3 owners in regions of the world which receive a lot of snow (and thus salt, sand, and gravel on the roads), that the paint would rapidly degrade behind the wheels as a result. Tesla has responded by releasing a new and free ‘All Weather Protection Kit’.

The kit, as far as we know just consists of mud flaps for behind the wheels. The kit is available for free at most Service Centers in regions much like New York which receive a decent snowfall each year. Although the flaps are available at the Service Centers, the installation is up to the owner. According to an email that Tesla sent, there is an installation manual included with the mud flaps.



This seems to be a fairly minimal take on winter protection as there were no options to include floor mats, winter tires, or a brush to remove snow or ice from your car. As Tesla has stabilized production and achieved consistent profitability, one would not be wrong to assume that more ease of life improvements like this will be coming in the near future.


New Jersey Is Getting Electrified

New legislation recently made an important step on its way to getting signed this week. State Assembly Bill A4819 as well as its counterpart, State Senate Bill S2252, recently received passing votes in their respective committees and will likely be signed into law by the end of this week, which also brings this legislative session to a close.

It is expected that by December 31, 2021, New Jersey will have: at least 600 DC charging points at 300 not previously existing locations, at least one hundred of the 300 locations is to be on a major travel corridor and providing at least 150kW of power, and at least 1,000 new 240v public chargers. These goals are very ambitious and will hopefully result in great change in the way businesses and the public in New Jersey view EV ownership.

By December 31, 2025, the state hopes to have: 25% of multi-family residential properties, 25% of overnight lodging and 25% of places of employment will have 240v EV chargers. In addition, by the end of 2025, New Jersey wants 100% of transit bus purchases to be of electric busses, as well as 40% of state owned, non emergency vehicles to be electric. These are all very important steps towards reducing emissions in the state and hopefully more states will follow New Jersey’s lead in the coming future.
