Tesla offers Model X owners shades to block out the haters

Tesla's Model X has an enormous windshield that arches over the back of your head, offering an expansive view of the world outside. But when it's particularly hot or sunny, all that glass can be a distraction or uncomfortable for everyone trapped inside. To help, Tesla has opted for the simplest of solutions -- removable windshield sunshades. As Teslarati reports, the company is now emailing Model X owners to offer them one of these new sun-blockers. They fit snugly around the back of the rear-view mirror, covering much of the glass that sits above the driver.

Sunshine isn't the first problem the Model X has run into. Back in April, Tesla had to recall vehicles due to a flaw with the locking hinge that manages the third row of seats. Hopefully production will be a little smoother for the much-anticipated Model 3 -- it has a smaller windshield than the Model X, so unwanted heat and glare should be less of an issue.
