It’s important to tint your entire Tesla to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. This includes tinting the windshield with a clear film. The heat rejection capabilities of XPEL’s PRIME ceramic films, XR and XR Plus, maximizes protection against solar heat with a rating of SPF 1,000. The difference between XR and XR Plus is the amount of infrared heat each film blocks.

PRIME XR = 88% Infrared Blockage
PRIME XR Plus = 98% Infrared Blockage

Watch Why You Should Tint Your Tesla


Traditional window films try to do two things—block heat and look cool—and usually don’t do either of them well. XPEL’s PRIME ceramic films give you the protective benefits of window tint but don’t obstruct your view like lower quality window films.


Utilizing a nano-ceramic construction, PRIME XR Ceramic Film maintains the same flawless appearance and clarity for multiple years. Blocking up to 88% of infrared heat, PRIME XR will provide you with the level of performance you expect from a top-of-the-line automotive window tint without breaking the bank.

Questions about tinting your Tesla? See our answers below...

Which Tesla models do offer window tinting for?

We’ll tint the windows for any Tesla: Model 3, Model S, Model X, and Model Y, etc.

Can you tint windows on a Tesla with one piece of film?

Yes, even on the Model 3. We use a single 60-inch piece of window film to ensure a quality install and maximum lifespan for the window tint.

Is Tesla window tinting different from other vehicles?

Not really. The main challenge is the extra-large window on some models. We use a single 60-inch piece of film to combat this problem, and we install the film the same way we do on other vehicles.

What is the average length that window tint lasts on Tesla windows?

Standard films generally last around 5 years. The XPEL window tint that we use at Sun Stoppers usually lasts at least 10 years, and often longer if properly maintained.

Should I wait a certain number of hours before rolling the windows down in my Tesla gets tinted?

Yes. Rolling your windows down prematurely can harm the window tint just like washing your windows too soon can, too. While 4 days is usually long enough to wait, you might want to wait a week to be on the safe side.

What kinds of window film do you offer for tinting the windows of a Tesla?

We offer the XPEL Prime XR (88% blockage of infrared heat) and the XPEL Prime XR Plus (98% blockage of infrared heat). Both window films protect you from harmful UV rays with a rating of SPF 1,000.

What is the best way to clean tinted Tesla windows?

There are two main considerations when cleaning tinted windows:

      1. Use an ammonia-free cleaner. A few good options are Invisible Glass and Meguiar’s Glass Cleaner. 
      2. Use soft microfiber cloths when cleaning the windows. Even household items like paper towels with a rougher surface can damage tinted windows.

Do Tesla vehicles come with factory tint?

In recent years, Tesla began to include 20% tinting in the glass for the rear windows.

What tint should I get on my Tesla?

This depends on what you like and the legal limits of your state! Check out our Tesla Tinting Simulator to give you an idea of how the tint would look or stop by your local Sun Stoppers shop for more ideas.

Does tinting a Tesla void the warranty?

If the windshield is cracked or damaged due to the process of aftermarket tinting, Tesla’s warranty will not cover the cost of that repair. The warranty remains valid for other areas of the car like the battery and commuter. However, these issues are highly unlikely if you utilize a quality service and a casual relationship is difficult to prove.  

Window Tinting & UV Protection For Your Tesla

If you own a Tesla, you care a lot about driving a safe car and cutting down on the expenses of powering a vehicle.  But did you know that Tesla’s…


If you own a Tesla, you care a lot about driving a safe car and cutting down on the expenses of powering a vehicle. 

But did you know that Tesla’s have a feature called Cabin Overheat Protection that automatically turns the A/C on if the interior gets over 110 degrees, even while parked? That means your miles per charge plummet and you aren’t nearly as efficient as you thought. 

It’s time to make your Tesla safer, cooler, and more private.

It’s time you got the best window tinting services available for your car.  It’s time you got XPEL Tesla window tinting from Sun Stoppers!

We have all experienced getting into a car after it sits in the sun for a few hours.  After a hard day at work, the last thing you want is your car needing several minutes to cool down!

With a Tesla, a hot cabin is doubly unfortunate because it triggers the Cabin Overheat Protection System. As a result, the A/C runs in your Tesla, causing your miles per charge to nosedive. 

Unfortunately, the sun causes even more problems than an overactive A/C when it beats down on your Tesla. 

Maybe it’s driving down the road in the mid-afternoon with consistent sun glare in your eyes. Or, maybe it’s knowing you are being exposed to the sun’s UV rays which are fading your car’s interior, and possibly causing skin damage to your body.

Hot car interiors, fading upholstery, sun glare while driving, limited privacy – these are just a few of the problems when you spend hours in a car with limited or no window tint.

Whatever the case, you deserve a car with a cooler interior, more privacy, protection against UV rays, and less direct sunlight.

That’s where XPEL window tint and Sun Stoppers come in!
