A Basic Center Console Organizer for the Tesla Model is a suggested rephrasing.

One of the things I most respect about the Model S is the care given to its design aesthetic. The Tesla team always chooses less over more. The abbreviated trumps the comprehensive at every turn. A great example of this is the center console in the Model S. Or should I say the lack of one. There’s no typical dashboard mutation curving down to invade the cabin crowding your knees. Gas cars require that space to house the transmission tail for linking to the gear shift lever, cup holders, power plugs, phone stand; sometimes even a parking brake handle and drive train. Whew, that’s a lot of stuff. No large console means more open space given over to the imagination to personalize and experiment. This unique quality of the Model S is under appreciated and often misunderstood.

Tesla Motors created the Yacht Floor with finish options to match dashboard décor. That subtle edition is for cosmetic purposes only, not utility. So along came a number of aftermarket products to further imagine the space by making it more useful while taking care to preserve the DNA of the car’s design. The problem they are trying to solve is how to have a collection of small items at the ready while behind the wheel.

Personally I never felt the need for an console organizer. I like openness and am not one to tolerate clutter. But I wear prescription sunglasses and so I need a safe place to store them. Either my sunglasses or regular glasses rest on that space at all times. Whatever I place there rests on the floor, so when I punch the accelerator items travel forward and backward freely. I want to be sure to protect my glasses, but the only way to ensure safety is to store them on the shelf below the touchscreen. The shelf is nice but it has height restrictions and is not as easy to get to while driving.

Here at Teslarati we came across a different approach to making use of the console space without losing the clean, open look. A very simple center console organizer from the Swiss firm, Tesla&More. I got my hands on one and have had it in my Model S for a couple of days now. I have to say that I am finding it useful, but it’s adding visual clutter.
