Today’s vehicles are becoming increasingly more complex. With each new generation comes a host of new safety features and digital driver aids. Despite all of this modern technology, one thing remains consistent over the decades; the ability to quickly and easily see around your vehicle is vitally important to safe driving. Even with new technologies like blind spot monitoring systems, autonomous driving, etc. Nothing replaces the ability to actually see the areas surrounding your vehicle at any given moment. No matter how you position your vehicles side-view mirrors, by design there will always be areas you cannot see. These areas are called blind spots. A common solution are convex mirrors, which are also known as blind spot mirrors. You will see blind spot mirrors used on virtually all vehicle types, including: motorcycles, passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and trucks. These products range from universal add-ons to factory integrated units. Like most products, quality and functionality can vary greatly.
This is something we see being discussed on a regular basis. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) published a paper in 1995 suggesting how side-view mirrors could be adjusted to eliminate blind spots. The paper advocates adjusting the mirrors outward so that the viewing angle of side-view mirrors just overlaps the cabin’s rearview mirror. This method can absolutely reduce the common blind spots, however, it also creates new blind spots when done with Tesla US market mirrors.
By moving the factory mirrors so far outward, visibility around the vehicle is reduced, but sizable blind spots in all areas remain and parking visibility is reduced. Additionally, vehicles, pedestrians, bikes and motorcycles near your vehicle can be an invisible risk that still require turning to visually check. Additionally, blind spot monitoring systems often do not activate in dense areas and heavy traffic at low speeds.
No matter how you adjust your side-view mirrors, our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors are custom designed to show the entire blind spot area. This is accomplished not only by the unique curvature, but also the angle of the mirror base and placement position itself.
Universal blind spot mirrors come in various shapes, sizes and designs. Some are rimless and others are fully adjustable. Compared to our Extended View™ product line, simply put, there is no comparison. Universal blind spot mirrors are not specifically designed for your vehicle. They are generally an eyesore, which can significantly diminish the aesthetics of your Tesla. Additionally, the convex curvature is often extreme, resulting in distortion and a reduction of depth perception. The vast majority of universal blind spot mirrors are made of some type of plastic with a reflective coating. The clarity this provides is less than ideal and will also break down over time.
Our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors are specially designed for your Tesla vehicle. The overall shape and scale are all customized based upon your factory side-view mirror. In addition, our engineers break down the viewing angle and curvature into as many as 7 planes of individual adjustment. This complex design process results in visibility and clarity that is far superior to any universal product. We use only premium quality, real glass, which further enhances clarity and provides long term durability. Once you use our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors, you will quickly see the NXTGEN difference.
Extended View blind spot mirrors for Tesla’s are designed and created in the USA. They are constructed using OEM quality real glass, ABS frames and genuine 3M dual-sided adhesive.
Our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors provide added visibility to your factory Tesla side-view mirrors. They are sold as a set of two for the left and right side of your vehicle and can be used with heated, auto-dimming and non-dimming side-view mirror models.
The extra visibility provided by Extended View™ is a useful aid in various driving situations, including:
