Tesla cars are highly sought after, environmentally clean, American electric vehicles, and people lucky enough to have one, want to treat it right.
No matter if you have a Model S, Model 3, Model X, or Model Y, a ceramic coating can elongate the lifespan of your vehicle’s exterior. With all of the options out there, it may be difficult to decipher which one is best. Fortunately for you, we put in the leg work and found the best option to keep your Tesla looking pristine for years to come.
XPEL Fusion Plus
When looking for the best results for your Tesla, you have to make sure that you are purchasing from a reputable business. XPEL has stunned the masses since its 1997 debut. Their product, XPEL Fusion Plus, does not stray from their norm of excellence. This product provides an outstanding sleek look to your paint while protecting it from scratches, thrown debris on the roadways, and even makes cleaning and detailing your vehicle a non-issue. After a one-time application, your Tesla will be hydrophobic, oleophobic, have incredible surface clarity, and a beautiful gloss.
Combine Products for Additional Protection
If you want to have the most protection for your Tesla’s aesthetics, XPEL Fusion Plus can make an unbelievable difference for your vehicle and comes with a 4-year guarantee. This particular protective coating is made specifically to either be used on painted surfaces or PPF (also known as paint protection film). This means that you could get a PPF, such as XPEL’s Ultimate Plus, installed on your Tesla and then have this coating placed on top of it for the maximum benefit; effectively combining the features of both products. Another PPF that may be worth considering if you own a Tesla and want even more protection than is provided by ceramic coating alone, is XPEL’s Stealth paint protection film.
Flecks of rocks and other road rubble damaging your paint job are part of vehicle ownership. One fantastic option is to get a clear bra paint protection package to avoid scratches from kicked up pieces of road and rock chips. Unfortunately, this is only an option if you only want to protect the frontmost of your Tesla.
If you want to protect the entirety of your vehicle and it’s beloved paint, XPEL Fusion Plus Ceramic Coating is the way to go with its full coverage and exceptional hardness. This product’s hardness is graded on the pencil hardness scale. The pencil hardness scale is an effective and efficient method of testing the hardness of various coatings for their resistance to scratches. This scale ranges from 9B being the softest and 9H being the hardest.
With a 9H hardness topping out the scale, XPEL Fusion Plus is beyond capable of protecting your Tesla from the elements and the wear and tear that comes with vehicle ownership.
Hydrophobic and Oleophobic Protection
Hydrophobic and oleophobic protection are just fancy words meaning that XPEL Fusion Plus repels many substances, including water-based substances and oil-based substances. Hydrophobic means that droplets of water will rebound from the paint’s surface, bead up, and then roll off of your Tesla after this product has cured. Oleophobic means that oils and oily substances such as fingerprints will be repelled from your Tesla, making it easier to clean. Corrosives materials, which are very dangerous for your car’s paint, are also readily deterred by XPEL Fusion Plus.
Save Time and Money with Easier Cleaning and Maintenance
This product’s ability to repel various substances, as discussed above, allows the vehicle owner, you, to put in less effort maintaining your Tesla’s aesthetics. Because of dust, muck, tree sap, dirt and other environmental contaminants will not be able to stick itself onto your paint job, it will be much easier to wash off, effectively reducing the frequency of detailing requirements. With the high hardiness rating, paint corrections will completely be unnecessary after application.

Without any additional effort, your vehicle will maintain that longed after glossy, “wet look”. XPEL Fusion Plus Ceramic Coating enhances the intensity of your Tesla’s paint, boosts its surface clarity, and improves its shine. When you take into consideration the additional scratch resistance provided, you’ll come to find that your Tesla could be car show ready in a moment’s notice.
