Updated, simplified Tesla Model 3 reported on Horizon


  • Like Tesla Model 3 As it nears its sixth birthday, it is said to be getting closer to receiving its first upgrade.
  • The report comes from Reuters. The news service said it spoke to four sources about the plans.
  • The update is part of an effort by Tesla to cut production costs as well as entice buyers through visual changes to the car – a rare move by Tesla.

Most automakers put their cars through multi-year cycles, complete with small annual updates. Tesla does it differently; EV manufacturers prefer to rely on over-the-air (OTA) updates and simply change the mechanical parts as they are developed. Because of this unusual method, the nearly six-year-old Model 3 has never had a facelift. But now, according to a report from Reutersa refreshed Model 3 with the codename “Highland” is being prepared and is expected to enter production in the third quarter of next year.

The refurbished Tesla is part of the company’s efforts to simplify design and reduce manufacturing costs. As Reuters reports, one focus of the new Model 3’s design has been to reduce interior complexity while maintaining features that Tesla customers care about, such as the central display. Never mind the fact that the Model 3’s interior looks as barren as a first apartment after college: it has a place to sit, a big screen, and not much else. Tesla’s last major vehicle update was to swap the Model S’s steering wheel for a yoke setting and switch to landscape orientation, something the Model 3 already has.

The other main reason for the update seems to be increased competitive pressure, especially competition in the Chinese market. The Model 3 remains Tesla’s cheapest offering, though its starting price of $48,440 has steadily increased and many older automakers have begun to put their weight on EV production. According to Reuters, the facelifted Model 3 will go into production at Tesla’s factories in Shanghai, China and Fremont, California. car and driver contacted Tesla for written comment, but did not receive a response.
