Tesla Launches Model 3 Illuminated Door Sills in Europe

Tesla’s web store is full of useful and aesthetically pleasing upgrade accessories for the company’s entire electric vehicle (EV) lineup, and a new door accessory has just come to light – quite literally.

Illuminated door sills for the Tesla Model 3 are now available in Europe, according to the company’s website (via Reddit).

The door sills are currently available in either silver or black on Tesla’s website at a price of £220 in England or 250€ elsewhere on the continent (roughly $302 USD).

In a Reddit sharing the news, one user questioned whether the batteries for the unit were replaceable, though since the unit will only be used for a few seconds at a time and uses LED lights, another user responded saying that the lights would likely last for years.

The illuminated door sills work using a magnetic contact that illuminates the sill when the door is opened, and attaches to the underside of the front doors.

While it may not be the most necessary Model 3 accessory, it does look amazing if you can afford the high price – it just may not have as much use as a tow hitch or all-weather interior liners.

Still, there’s no denying how slick they look, and hopefully, Tesla will add this hardware for its other models down the road.
