Tan leather?

First time poster. MAN the registration process for this site is a pain. And the password requirements are just silly. It's just a car, not nuclear launch codes.

But I digress.

I was hoping to get a Tesla Model 3, but my mom is going through some financial hardship so I'll need to help her out, so I can't justify spending that much money on a car at the present time. But I'm sick of giving any money to the sociopathic greedbags in the fossil fuel industry, so my next car MUST be at least a plug in hybrid, and I really like the look of the Gen1 Volt. (Gen2 looks way more like a boring family or rental car to me).

I really think it looks good in black, but I've only see black leather interiors. Did they ever make tan leather interiors? I used to have a Black/black acura integra and the leather just gets too hot in the summer.

They absolutely did. I have a '13 with the pebble beige interior. In my case it's leather with suede inserts and the door panels are suede. It's not the best photo, but here you can see the beige interior.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of the beige, but I didn't have much choice in the matter since I bought used. I find that the suede/microfiber really lends itself to getting spotty/stained easily. Overall however I think I'll prefer the beige more during summer since I'm hoping it won't suck up too as heat during the brutal temps we get here where the black would probably result in wonderful summer burns on the legs.
Last year I drove through the Bakersfield area with OAT at 113 F. My 2014 has black leather upholstery. If I had had to park in the sun, I probably would have had the problem you point out.
Definitely my point. Unfortunately I don't have covered parking either at work or home, so I highly suspect the remote start and auto climate control feature will be used heavily during the summer which is starting to poke its head out (80's this week).
Being patient really is the way to go to get what you want, at a price you are comfortable with. I spent almost 10 months before I found mine. I however wasn't particular about the exterior color, I did know that I wanted leather and bose/nav and really wanted to avoid the iPhone white trim.
Not sure about the dash. I believe the dash is always beige with the pebble interior option. The steering wheel, console and DIC on mine are dark though.
