    Which Tesla Has A Sunroof?

    Jul 22,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    Cars with sunroofs not only look great but also let in more natural light than would be the case with a typical glass surface. And with more light entering the car, the interior feels larger. But which Tesla already has a sunroof?

    No Tesla is currently made with a sunroof. However, the 2012 Tesla Model S had two roof options: a panoramic sunroof and a conventional aluminum-colored roof. However, Tesla stopped producing the Model S with a panoramic roof due to several reliability issues.

    Some people still think that several Teslas come with a sunroof to this day. This is incorrect as they usually confuse glass roof and sunroof. Tesla Model 3, Y, X, and S all have a glass roof. This roof makes the cabin airy and spacious.

    Cars with sunroofs not only look great but also let in more natural light than would be the case with a typical glass surface. And with more light entering the car, the interior feels larger. But which Tesla already has a sunroof?

    No Tesla is currently made with a sunroof. However, the 2012 Tesla Model S had two roof options: a panoramic sunroof and a conventional aluminum-colored roof. However, Tesla stopped producing the Model S with a panoramic roof due to several reliability issues.

    Some people still think that several Teslas come with a sunroof to this day. This is incorrect as they usually confuse glass roof and sunroof. Tesla Model 3, Y, X, and S all have a glass roof. This roof makes the cabin airy and spacious.

    Is it possible to install a sunroof on a Tesla Model 3, Y, or X?

    It is possible to retrofit the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y with a sunroof. However, this requires you to make numerous modifications to these vehicles. Also, you will have to spend a lot of money. However, the resale value of the vehicle will not change as much as a result of the sunroof.

    However, if you are looking to install an aftermarket Tesla Model X sunroof, this is not possible. The main reason for this is the falcon wing doors. These doors take up a large portion of the roof, making it even more difficult to install something as simple as a roof rack.

    Which roof is better - a panoramic roof or a glass roof?

    Between 2012 and 2018, Tesla offered a Tesla Model S with either a panoramic roof or an aluminum-colored roof. The sunroof was more elegant and practical than the traditional aluminum roof. However, due to reliability issues, the company decided to introduce the glass roof in 2016.

    So if you want a roof that allows natural light and air into the interior, then the panoramic roof is the best roof. But if you want a roof that lets in light and is more reliable, then the glass roof is a better choice. In addition, the current Tesla models are equipped with a glass roof.

    If you want a Tesla with a panoramic roof, you need to look for the 2012 Tesla Model S. These are hard to find and can be expensive to maintain.

    Features of the 2012 Tesla Model S

    Appearance

    The 2012 Tesla Model S with a panoramic roof looks good and has a modern finish. There are four variants to choose from, including the Tesla Model S sedan, Performance, Signature, and Signature Performance. All variants are four-door sedans with rear-wheel drive.

    Like the current Tesla Model S range, the 2012 version has a luxurious and spacious interior. It seats up to 5 people with an optional rear-facing third-row seat. It also has a 17-inch display from which almost everything in the car is controlled.

    Also, this is the model that made Tesla popular, overtaking German cars. It's still one of the best sedans on the market and the best electric sedan ever built.

    Performance

    Unlike its latest model, this car wasn't very fast, but it was still faster than the competition. The 2012 Tesla Model S accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds, which was outstanding at the time. The Tesla Model S currently accelerates from 0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds.

    FAQ

    Do Tesla Model 3, Y, and X have a sunroof?

    No, only the Tesla Model S has a sunroof. In addition, only the Tesla Model S models from 2012 to 2018 have a panoramic sunroof. All Tesla Model S built after 2018 have a glass roof like other Tesla models. Yes, Tesla Model X, Y, and 3 have glass roofs.

    How can I find a Tesla Model S with a sunroof?

    If you are looking for a Tesla with a sunroof, you will need to purchase it through individuals or through the Tesla Used Vehicle Dealership. Although private sales are cheaper and quicker to acquire a Tesla, the best way to buy a used Tesla is through Tesla Used Inventory.

    Unlike purchasing a 2012 Tesla Model S through a private individual, when you purchase through Tesla's used vehicle inventory, you can be assured that the vehicle is in immaculate condition. That's because Tesla Used Inventory offers a 145-point comprehensive inspection and a limited used vehicle warranty.

    What it doesn't offer, which a private seller or owner would offer, are pictures of the vehicle. But since it offers inspection and a manufacturer's guarantee, it's the best option to avoid buying a problem car.

    Does Tesla still make cars with a sunroof?

    No, Tesla no longer makes cars with sunroofs. Tesla used to make the Tesla Model S with two roof options: a panoramic roof and an aluminum-colored roof. However, in 2018, the company stopped producing Teslas with sunroofs due to reliability issues.

    Why did Tesla get rid of the sunroof?

    The main reason Tesla got rid of the panoramic roof was that during heavy rain, water would seep in through the roof. This was mainly due to a manufacturing defect which meant that the panoramic roof seals were damaged every time it was opened and closed. This led to Tesla issuing a recall.

    How does the Tesla panoramic sunroof work?

    The panoramic sunroof was operated through fully customizable settings via the touchscreen menu or, in some cases, the steering wheel. With these settings, the sunroof could be opened or closed. The roof opened and slid back on its tracks on the top of the vehicle, while a small windshield unfolded in front.

    Conclusion

    The only Tesla with a sunroof is the 2012 Tesla Model S. Tesla no longer makes vehicles with a sunroof or sunroof. So if you want a Tesla with a sunroof, you need to look for a used 2012 Tesla Model S with that feature.

    Tesla has discontinued the production of the Tesla Model S with a sunroof because of the reliability issues associated with it. Instead, Tesla opted for cars with glass roofs, which offer similar benefits to the sunroof but are more reliable. Glass roofs can be found on Tesla Model 3, Y, X, and S.
