Rules for Google and Apple Self-Driving Cars To Be Regulated Clapway

Veganism has officially hit Silicon Valley, and it proves that any self-driving car out of Tesla, Apple and Google can be regulated by organizations like PETA. In June of 2015, PETA requested that Tesla offer a vegan leather version for the interior of the Model X car. As a stakeholder of the company, Tesla had to heed.

Tesla Brings in Vegan Model X

Tesla is launching the Model X this January. After working alongside Tesla, it is now official that the highly anticipated car will feature a fully vegan interior. This includes the car’s seats, gear shift and steering wheel.

By using vegan leather, Tesla is reducing the car’s carbon footprint. This makes the Model X plenty greener. Making animal skin into leather requires the use of cyanide among over 100 other chemicals. Exposure to these chemicals is also harmful to people living nearby leather manufacturers. Every ton of hides uses up 15,000 gallons of water, not to mention a lot of animal cruelty.

It’s Not Like Tesla Was Pro-Cruelty

In the past, Tesla had offered a synthetic cloth interior for their customers. Faux leather is more high-level, so people looking for vegan interior options don’t have to sacrifice glamor for their beliefs. The highly anticipated car was first revealed in September of 2015, for the pretty price of $132,000. The Model X can go from 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. It features a lot of strange but exciting gimmicks, like the Ludicrous mode option, which enables the car to go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. This mode adds $10,000 to the price of the car.

The electric SUV can drive 250 miles on a single charge, and has a top speed of 155 mph. One of the more eccentric features of this car is that it features falcon wing doors, and also has an invisible chauffeur system that opens them automatically when it senses the car keys. The car also features an HEPA filter.

Will Apple and Google Also Go Vegan?

Appealing to the general public is indispensable for technology. Green is obviously the new black, so we may see Apple and Google implement similar measures on their self-driving cars. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it also gives people a healthier option when going car shopping.
