Is it her or isn't it her? There are no certainties, but what you see above could actually be the first photo without camufature of the Tesla Model 3 restyling. The conditional is still a must, also because the origin of this image, published on social media, is not certain: what is certain, however, is that the facelift of Elon Musk's electric car will make its debut shortly. In fact, there has been talk for some time about the arrival of the Tesla Model 3 2023 in dealerships between the summer and autumn of this year, in the wake of the price reduction that the manufacturer has applied to its range in recent months.
More streamlined muzzle. If this were indeed the restyling of the Tesla Model 3, code-named Highland, it is interesting to note how the design team led by Franz von Holzhausen made the sedan's nose much sharper. The headlights are less rounded and more gritty, with a luminous signature in the lower part and a new configuration for the LED lighting system. The new bumper seems to no longer integrate the two LED segments used as fog lights on the current Model 3 Long Range and Performance; the rear-view mirrors appear extremely similar to the current ones, while observing what little can be seen of the interior one can notice a small "hump" in front of the driver's seat. The Model 3 has never had a real instrument panel and not even the restyling should introduce it: it could therefore be a simple "fold" of the cloth used to cover the dashboard of the car, even if the last word is not said.
Same size, honed engines. What is certain is that the Model 3 will not be overturned by the restyling: the dimensions will remain - centimeter plus, centimeter less - the same as ever, i.e. a length of 4.694 mm, a width of 1.849 mm and a height of 1.443 mm. Inside, the five-seater configuration with a large infotainment in the center of the dashboard will not change: the touch screen shouldn't undergo substantial changes, but the graphics of the multimedia system will be modified and the debut of new features is to be expected. From the point of view of the engines, however, Tesla could make some refinements to the already existing powertrains, making the various versions more efficient (probably without affecting performance), from the two-wheel drive to the Long Range and Performance, which should continue to use the current batteries, proposing declared ranges of approximately 500 to 600 kilometres.
