Tesla Motors Unveils “Fully Vegan” SUV
As if building Electric cars isn’t enough, now Tesla is creating cars that are as ‘cruelty-free’ as possible…
When you think of luxury cars, you usually envision leather seats and that “new car smell”… But what if ethical consumers – such as vegans – don’t want seats lined with animal skin?
It’s been a conundrum for people that eschew eating animals and their products, as well as utilizing anything made with their parts, which is why TESLA delivered in a really cool and exciting way.
NBC News reports that for decades, leather-free options in the car industry have been limited. For this reason, the animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) – which is actually a shareholder of Tesla Motors – urged the electric car company to offer vegan leather for the interiors of its vehicles.
