- Model X, panoramic windshield, replacement cost, Tesla Motors
- Categories: Tesla Model X, Tesla Motors
One of the most loved and unique features of the Model X is the gigantic panoramic windshield. The view is so beautiful on ANY day!
But lots of people are worried about the replacement cost in case of a collision with an object. The windshield is a BIG piece of glass and it’s curved. It will probably require a special lift. I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to get it replaced at a local auto glass service. The way to go will probably be a Tesla Motors Service Center.
But how much will it cost? Some people speculated it would cost at least 5000$ or even 10 000$! Pretty scary! I have unsuccessfully been trying to get a cost estimate from Tesla for weeks now…
But I got an un-official estimate yesterday (I can’t cite my source): 2500$ CAD for a new windshield, including labor.
That’s pretty reasonable. By the way, Model S windshield replacement is around 1200$ CAD.
I’m wondering how much a panoramic windshield replacement like the Model X’s would cost through a traditional luxury brand dealership? Anyone have an idea?
If you want to get a better view of that incredible panoramic windshield, please take a look at this video (warning: in French):
