My Tacoma came with carpet mats on top of carpet to keep the carpet clean. It also came with a Bedliner to protect the bed. If you have to add an additional to layer to protect the thing, the thing is poorly designed. There should never be a need for aftermarket parts to make anything functional as it's intended, that just means the OEM left money on the table for someone else.
I sure hope cybertruck comes with a durable hard floor that I can hose or blow out. Perhaps have to lift the truck on one side to make the water all run out. Then for the folks that want carpet ( me when I'm going to the opera) Tesla should make carpet mats that lock into place.
If weathertech can make rubber mats to protect carpet. They can make carpet mats if Tesla fails to do the right thing.
I agree with you there, build it “right“ from the beginning. On a side note Weathertech‘s newest floor mats are pretty sweet and a definitely an upgrade from their rubber ones. I have 210k miles on my Taco and still going strong. I am still looking forward to parking it for the CT though.

If there is a cost savings, many fleet vehicles would be ordered with the rough and tumble interior...

Unless they are like contractor salesman cars, then they will have the luxury interior.
Never trust a contractor with a shiny expensive vehicle LOL! Equivalent to a “I charge more” billboard

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.
Once had a '77 Toyota Landcruiser, looked down at the floorboard under my feet one day and discovered I had enough sand to grow stuff in, looked like a "kitty litter" box.

I have seen people not trust a salesman/contractor because they drove a 'junky' vehicle, since they do not make enough money to afford a nicer vehicle, so they must not be good.

Was not my thinking, but it does happen.

I can’t see the “apocalypse ready” CT being equipped with any type of floor carpet from the factory. Maybe the designers are working on a thin black colored astroturf type of flooring (Cyberturf!) that could be easily washed out with a hose that is super durable.

Ya, I think it’s a gradient: junker, mid-line 150/1500, then flashy add $20k for luxe 💍🎩🧐
