Tesla vehicles with their high-tech interfaces, luxury finishes and aerodynamic exterior styling demand careful cleaning and maintenance. But is taking your Tesla through an automated car wash sufficient care compared to professional detailing services?

In this article, we’ll look at the key differences between basic car washes and professional Tesla detailing, and why detailing is the smarter way to maintain these high-end electric vehicles.

Touchless vs Hand Washing

Touchless car washes use high-pressure water jets which can still damage paintwork over time. Professional Tesla detailers use a hand wash technique with grit guards and lambswool mitts, providing a safer, swirl-free clean.

Surface Scrubbing Only

Car washes provide a very quick, light surface wash. Detailing thoroughly cleans every inch of the vehicle’s exterior and interior using specialized techniques and cleaners. This deeper scrub removes contaminants a car wash can’t touch.

No Polishing or Protection

Car washes do not polish paint or apply protective sealants or ceramic coatings. Detailing includes multi-stage paint polishing to remove swirls and scratches along with durable coatings. This nourishes and shields the Tesla’s paintwork.

No Interior Services

Car washes focus just on the exterior. Professional Tesla detailing provides a full suite of interior services like shampooing seats, sanitizing surfaces and conditioning leather. This keeps the refined interior looking immaculate.

Customized for Your Tesla

Detailers tailor their services based on the condition and needs of your specific Tesla. Car washes take a one-size-fits-all approach. The personal care from a detailer delivers better results.
