A few days ago we told you about some rumors according to which Tesla is about to launch one updated version of the Model 3, with a project known for now as "Highland". In fact, the sports sedan has been on the market for several years now, and has only had updates to the components, but nothing aesthetic or functional.
From some points of view, despite the covers, these parts too seem to have the usual shapes. Some users have tried to take a better look at the pixels of the photos (as usual, not exactly in high definition), assuming the presence of video cameras inside the headlights. This solution might actually make sense, to help the new system Tesla Vision, without radar and without ultrasonic sensors, in understanding the distances from obstacles, such as in parking manoeuvres.
The hypothesis that those in the photos are not already the prototypes of the restyling would also find confirmation in some Tesla procedures. Former employees, also on Reddit, stated that in the presence of any new externally identifiable hardware, pre-production specimens can only be used by testers and employees if disguised, just like the ones in the photo. So the mere presence of new video cameras visible from the outside would justify the total coverage of the area, which however may not hide other substantial changes.
