Spray on liner can be done aftermarket, however you would be covering up the t-track. Perhaps a rubber floor will be optional.

My Xterra years ago had this and I felt it was an overrated feature....it was some sort of padded textured rubber material and was quite slick when it got wet or had snow on it.

Only two people care for a washable floor? All other people will not enter the truck with muddy boots?
Quite the opposite! My floor is covered with sand and small gravel. Every entrance to the vehicle tracks in more.

Why clean it? Vacuum once in a while (in my case about once a year) is plenty.

I would like to be able to get in the truck with my wetsuit still on and not worry about the consequences. I had seat covers for my old truck that worked pretty well, but it's the floor that I'm usually concerned with.

I would prefer a non-carpet floor. The trucks I grew up with had rubber floor mats that covered the painted steel floor. I imagine it will be easier to clean out the CT because there is no transmission hump in the middle of the cab.

For me it depends on how insulated the floor is. In cold weather, I’d want something catching the snow/ice/salt and having padding and carpet underneath that liner would be necessary if the floor didn’t insulate well from outside temps. Personally I’d never use a hose to spray out the interior but I’m not in construction.

I’m a big fan of easily replaceable components - but every car mfg always makes it very difficult and expensive to replace interior surfaces subject to everyday wear. Whatever is likely to get scratched or dented over time should be easy to unbolt and replace by the owner...that’s what I’d do.

It’s great that the exterior is bullet proof - but it’d be great to be able to easily replace a steering wheel, dash, console cover, seat cover, etc when they’re not looking so hot anymore. That’d be a major selling point imo - inside showing wear? No problem - $1300 in parts and 2 hrs of low skill labor and your truck looks new inside again.

My range rover is beautiful inside - but things get scratched, leather gets discolored, etc and it costs a fortune to replace, so nobody does it. I think replacement part sales would double or triple if they weren’t hard to install and reasonably priced.

And WHY does everyone put important switches - or any switches - right next to cup holders. One spill and the switch gets sticky. Why.

Got off topic and started to rant...sorry. 🙂

"Work Truck" trim levels of Ford and GM trucks can be configured with rubber floor instead of carpeted. But Tesla doesn't seem to offer the literally dozens of customizable options like the other mfg. do, so I predict they won't offer this option. The floor should be nice and flat, so probably a pretty easy retrofit.

I imagine WeatherTech will offer a set of floor liners for the CT. If so, that is a good option. They have a tray design that catches most everything. When they start getting "full" of melt water, sand, and dirt, you pull them out and dump and rinse.

That is a good point. I especially like the idea of getting something like a "full floor" WeatherTech floor liners for the truck.

I had this in my Xterra years back, a single may that went the entire width of the back seat

Weathertech or Husky will come out with perfect fit rubber mats I am sure. That's what I will go for. Easy to flip out on the lawn and hose down.

I like the idea of just opening the doors and cleaning out the cab floor with a hose. Did it many afternoons in the military washing out the truck in the motor pool. NO CARPET it's just a dirt sponge.
