BUBble Glass, the company that makes the $200 glass-encased window on a Tesla Model S, is making a similar product for Tesla’s Model X. The company unveiled the new window at the Tesla Design Show in Los Angeles.
The glass window uses a flexible polymer to wrap around the Model X, allowing it to protect the driver from the cold and wind while still allowing the driver to see in.
It also offers an array of other features that could make it a more reliable vehicle, including an automatic braking system that would let drivers keep their hands on the wheel if they had to, a “self-closing” window for emergency situations, and a sliding window for when the driver is traveling at low speeds.
“Bubble Glass” is the name of the glass-like window, which is made by the company’s subsidiary, Tesla Design Lab, and is a product of the company.
The glass window is designed for use on Tesla’s vehicles, and it can be used in places like the driver’s seat and the front passenger’s seat, said David Siegel, chief operating officer of Tesla Design Labs.
Siegel said the window was designed to be lightweight, so that the driver could easily fit it into the vehicle’s trunk or cargo area.
A version of the same window can be seen in a Tesla Supercharger station in California.
According to the company, it is not yet known how many people have bought Bubble Glass, or what their overall response to the product has been.
While it has been around for quite some time, the Model S was one of the first electric vehicles to have a glass window.
Bubbles are also used on some Tesla vehicles, like the Model 3, which was unveiled earlier this month.
Tesla Design Lab also designed the windows for the Model Z SUV, which the company says has a glass-glass windshield.
