What car covers can be used outdoors?
Not any car cover is meant to be used outdoors. A car cover meant for indoor use should never be used outdoors as it won’t protect your vehicle properly and it can even fly away during heavy wind.
Outdoor car covers have additional outer layers for weatherproofing and tie-down straps to secure it to the vehicle.
Can the Model X be charged while using a car cover?
Yes, absolutely. Having a car cover with a charging port opening makes this possible. Make sure you’re using a car cover with enough ventilation when charging your Model X.
If you’re charging your car in your garage, it could also be useful to have a charging cable organizer.
Are all car covers waterproof?
Not all car covers are waterproof. Outdoor car covers are all waterproof but not all indoor covers are waterproof.
Can a car cover reduce heat inside the vehicle?
Yes, a car cover can help keep your car parked outside cooler as long as it is a white cover. This is due to the fact that white reflects more of the light spectrum compared to dark colors.
Additional considerations when using a car cover for the Model X
Here are a few recommendations that you should take into account when using a car cover for a car parked outdoors.
Use the tie-down straps
The use of the included straps is essential as it secures the cover and prevents it from flying off in high-wind conditions.
Always strap your cover properly even when there is no wind or stormy weather in the forecast as a single gust of wind could send it flying.
Store only when dry
After it rains and the car cover is wet, it is essential to dry it out completely before storing it or folding it. Give it a good shake and then place it completely opened up on a dry room with good ventilation.
If you store your cover while wet, it could develop mold, foul smells, and the material would deteriorate prematurely.
