Just got my trunk and frunk mats from the Tesla web store and confirmed my suspicions: they’re supplied by Weathertech (a shipping sticker reveals who originally sent the mats to Tesla by noting “Supplier: MacNeil Automotive Products Ltd Weathertech”). Tesla is literally reshipping the mats in the same the boxes they came in from Weathertech who is supplying the mats to them.
This explains the Model 3’s absence from Weathertech’s usually ahead of the game product release for new cars, and maybe why they’ve been dodgy about answering when they’d have them available for the new Tesla Model 3 like they do for S and X already.
Don’t know what this means for timing of the rest of the Weathertech FloorLiner style mats for the interior foot wells, but don’t be surprised if the ones “coming soon” on Tesla’s store end up also being Weathertech, meaning they also likely won’t be available directly from Weathertech just like the trunk and frunk ones aren’t currently (what IS interesting though is you CAN buy a Model 3 frunk mat directly from Weathertech’s account on eBay, despite them not being listed on the company’s website; doesn’t appear there’s any cost savings, though)
