A few weeks before Christmas, Tesla added a Christmas jumper to its store. It was completely sold out in no time.

Christmas is approaching. In the USA, this also means that Ugly Christmas sweaters can be dug out of the closet again. An idea that Tesla boss Elon Musk (51) probably had, because the electric car maker now also sells Christmas sweaters in its store.

With this, Tesla completes the product range already. For example, fans of the American company can buy blankets, cups, water bottles and even a mini supercharger as a smartphone charging station. A whistle was also produced at one point, but sold out shortly after. So now the Christmas jumper follows.

Tesla’s Christmas sweater sold out in no time.

“Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, our limited edition X-mas sweater will keep you warm all season long,” reads the sweater’s item description Tesla– Shop. The Austin-based automaker also shows the same amount of humor when it comes to choosing motifs.

8th place: VW ID.4. A variant of the well-behaved ID.3 base model with more interior and some off-road capability was registered 12,734 times last year. VW has high hopes on the range of the top version in 518 kilometers. Price: From 46,515 euros. © Ingo Barenschee/VW
Skoda Enyaq iV
7th place: Škoda Enyaq iV. Under the technical VW ID.3 and ID.4 on the MEB platform are slightly longer at 4.65 meters and thus fulfill the brand’s usual image as a family alternative.

Hyundai Kona Electric

Renault Zoe
4th place: Renault Zoe. The current version of the French electric city car failed the crash test (zero stars!), but with 24,736 new registrations it was very popular in this country. Thanks to a maximum range of up to 395 km, it is also suitable for long journeys. Price: from 33,140 euros. ©Renault
3rd place: VW ID.3. The flagship model of the VW Group’s “classic electric drive system” has long been considered the electric VW Golf, even if some Stromer fans would like a more exciting look. The ID.3, with an official range of up to 553 km, has already sold more than 100,000 vehicles across Europe, with 26,693 registrations in Germany. Price: from 36,960 euros. © Volkswagen
VW and Up
2nd place: VW e-Up. Its great popularity leads to even greater losses: the small electric car, which has been registered 30,797 times, is sold again and again, which ultimately also led to a sharp increase in prices. A distance of up to 260 km is fine for this size. Price: from 26,895 euros. © Volkswagen
Tesla model 3
1st place: Tesla Model 3. The entry-level model from the electric car pioneer clearly won the pole position with 35,262 new registrations and even reached the top of the overall weekly car charts. According to the factory, the distance is up to 547 km. Price: from 52,965 euros. ©Tesla

The knitted sweater is red with white Christmas-like patterns. Tesla’s handwriting is emblazoned on the center of the Model X-mas sweater. Various models – including the Cybertruck, which is scheduled to start production in 2023 – are planned around it. And lights and batteries should not be missing either.

Tesla: Christmas sweater sold in “36 seconds”.

Unfortunately, anyone who wants to buy a Tesla Christmas jumper is out of luck. Because the Model X-mas sweater became popular and completely sold out in a very short time – despite the price of 65 US dollars. The knitted sweater is also not available in the German Tesla store.

However, there are many offers on Ebay. There, however, the Christmas jumper costs a range of the original price. Something Tesla fans already know from Cyberquad. The “Tesla for Kids” also sold out for a short time and ended up on eBay for a shocking price. On Twitter, many users were disappointed. Others responded with much humor to the iconic X-mas sweater:

  • “Wow, sold out in 36 seconds?”
  • “Please return this sweater before Christmas.”
  • “At least enough should be done for those who want to buy it before announcing it to 17 million followers.”
  • “Increased price to $69”
  • “After you buy it, it costs $8 a month to wear it?”
