The Tesla center console was offered as a retrofit for older Model S cars. Originally the cost varied depending on the wood and carbon fiber accent choices, ranging from $800 to $1,000, but it was later changed to piano-black only. Since about 2016, both the Model S and X have included the center console as standard. A retrofit used to be available through service for older cars. The price was listed at $1250 for the console and installation. The retrofit option was removed from the Tesla store in the Summer of 2020.
The Tesla center console has a closable storage area and several movable dividers that can be used to provide two additional cup-holders. It also has a small bin to hold a cellphone and power the phone (for select Apple and Android devices). The installation will consume one of the two USB ports for the phone connection.
