Any thoughts on cleaning or concerns about cleaning the seats or how the white will pick up dirt more than the black?
My wife has a Tesla with white (WHITE!!!) interior, and I even got some red stain on it and managed to get it out (also "vegan leather") -- its fine. Also note that lighter interiors do not get anywhere near as hot, so you are saving battery when you enter the car after being in the sun a while. If you go camping, put a furniture pad across the back (I do with my car seats in my light colored etron) and a towel over the front seats if you are worried.

"Vegan leather" is just the new hip term for Vinyl or Pleather started by Tesla. Been in VW's, BMW's, Porsche and Mercedes for years, very durable, and wears well but hotter and colder versus real hides. Also known as V-Tex, Leatherette, and Faux Leather. Not as easy to repair though and doubt it is any better for the environment (Polyurethanes and Plastics). Much less expensive than real hides.
