Renewed in pencil tip at the end of 2020 Tesla Model 3 prepares for the first real restyling of his career. So reports Reuters quoting anonymous sources within the House, who spoke of the "highland project", kept in great secrecy by Musk and associates, at the heart of which is not only a renewal of the style of the average sedan, but its simplification.
According to sources, in fact, with the restyling, the Model 3 will be partially redesigned to reduce the number of components and the complexity of the interior, while at the same time there will be significant improvements for all the features appreciated by buyers over the years, including the central display.
How it will change
According to what was reported by Reuters with the new version the Tesla Model 3 will resume some elements of the older sister Model S, renewed outside and - especially - inside last year. And in all likelihood, instead of the classic round steering wheel, even the average sedan will be able to mount the Yoke, an aeronautical-style cloche that hasn't really convinced all Tesla customers.
It could then also debut there digital instrumentation, to complete the information displayed on the new central monitor which could grow in size, reaching 17" of the one present on the Model S. Even the air conditioning vents will be redesigned and hidden behind the dashboard.
And the engines?
By now surrounded by competitors (and future competitors), the restyling Tesla Model 3 should also update its powertrain, with new engines and even more efficient battery packs, to further increase the autonomy. And who knows, maybe a Plaid version with plenty of power might arrive for her too, to put the competition in line.
Subtract here and add there, to maintain leadership among electric sedans. An approach that has made Tesla's fortune over the years "We have repeatedly found parts that are not necessary. They have been inserted for safety or by mistake. We have eliminated many parts that were useless," said Musk in a speech at the conference Baron Funds at the beginning of the month.
An approach that has allowed Tesla to become the manufacturer of electric cars more profitable of the Globe with - according to the data declared - a profit of just over 9.500 dollars for each car sold.
Ma When it will arrive the Tesla Model 3 facelift? According to sources, less than a year is missing: the presentation is in fact scheduled for the third quarter of 2023, with production both in the Shanghai Gigafactory and in that of Freemont.
