Unfortunately, there is currently no way to officially save or share your designs from the Tesla Colorizer. The tool does not have user accounts to store designs. However, you can take screenshots of your color designs in the Colorizer to save or share if desired.
How do I use the Tesla Colorizer?
Using the Colorizer is very simple and intuitive:
- Log into your Tesla Account and access the Colorizer webpage.
- Select your Tesla model – Model S, Model 3, Model X, or Model Y.
- Scroll through the color options at the top and click to apply any color to your vehicle.
- Click the arrows on the vehicle image to rotate and get different viewing angles.

- Take screenshots of your favorite color designs to save or share if desired.
Can I change the wheel or interior color?
Yes, with the Colorizer you can customize more than just the exterior body color. There are options to change the color of the wheels, brake caliper, and full interior as well. Just scroll through and select your desired colors for each component.
How realistic is the Colorizer visualization?
The Tesla Colorizer provides a high quality photorealistic visualization of your selected colors on the vehicle. The tool uses detailed 3D renders of the vehicles, so you get an accurate representation of how the colors would look in real life. However, some colors may look slightly different in person depending on lighting conditions.
Can I see the color on my specific VIN vehicle?
Unfortunately the Colorizer does not currently support uploading images or using your specific VIN vehicle. You can only visualize colors on the default vehicle models. So you will not see the exact car that matches your existing VIN number. This is a limitation of the current Colorizer tool.
Do these colors represent actual paint or wrap options?
The colors shown in the Tesla Colorizer tool represent actual factory paint colors that are available directly from Tesla. They are not representing vinyl wraps or aftermarket modifications. You can order any of the Tesla Colorizer colors as a factory paint option, however they may add an additional cost to your vehicle purchase.
Can I change the color of my existing Tesla?
If you want to change the color of a Tesla you already own, you have a couple options:
- Respray: You can hire a body shop to professionally respray your Tesla in a new color. This involves completely sanding, priming, and painting the exterior.
- Wrapping: You can hire a shop to wrap your Tesla in colored vinyl. This will change the appearance without repainting.
- Tesla color change: In some limited cases, you may be able to pay Tesla to change the color at a service center. Contact Tesla to inquire about availability and cost.
The Tesla Colorizer can be used to experiment with different color options before committing to an expensive change on your existing vehicle.
Can I save different color options to compare?
Unfortunately, the Tesla Colorizer tool does not currently support saving multiple color options to compare side-by-side. You can only visualize one color configuration at a time. The best way to compare different color choices is to take screenshots of the designs, so you can view them together after designing in the Colorizer.

Does the Colorizer work on a mobile phone?
Unfortunately, the official Tesla Colorizer is not currently available on mobile apps or mobile web. You need to access the Colorizer using a desktop or laptop computer. This is because the Colorizer requires robust graphics processing power for the detailed 3D vehicle visualization.
There are some third party mobile apps that offer similar visualization tools for exploring Tesla colors. However, they are not affiliated with or endorsed by Tesla. The official high quality Colorizer experience can only be accessed on a desktop computer through your Tesla account.
The Tesla Colorizer is an exciting tool that gives you the ability to digitally customize the exterior and interior colors of your Tesla vehicles. Accessible through your Tesla account, the Colorizer provides a photorealistic 3D visualization of your design options.
