The All-New Tesla Model 3 Revealed!
Tesla stands out from other car manufacturers in a number of ways, one of which is its unconventional approach to updating its vehicles. Unlike other companies, Tesla does not follow the traditional model-year update cycle, instead opting for rolling updates that can occur multiple times per year. Recent speculation and spy shots suggest that a major update to the Tesla Model 3 sedan is in the works, and a photo that recently appeared on the subreddit appears to show a partially exposed Model 3.
We must acknowledge that we cannot confirm the authenticity of the image or if the car depicted is indeed the new Model 3. However, if the image is fabricated, it is a convincing fabrication. The car, known as "Highland" internally, is anticipated to launch later this year as a comprehensive update to the Model 3. While the mystery car in the photo bears similarities to the current Model 3, it boasts sharper lines and a new headlight design. The headlights feature a more horizontal layout than the existing model and appear to be slimmer and more aggressive, reminiscent of Tesla Model S and Tesla Roadster 2.0 headlamps. Furthermore, the lack of fog lights on this vehicle indicates that the headlights may now perform that function. The car's bumper looks athletic with a circular shape and distinct edge at the bottom. Alloy wheels have been updated to complement the overall design. The center display is visible in the picture, tilted for improved ergonomics.
According to reports, Tesla is planning to improve the interior and powertrain of the Model 3 to enhance its efficiency and performance. Recently, a picture of the car has surfaced online which suggests that it may feature a revamped wheel design and a gauge cluster for the driver. This is a significant deviation from the Model 3's traditional design, which previously relied on a large screen for all functions.
Tesla has upgraded its Tesla Model Y manufacturing processes by incorporating a sizable casting system that streamlines operations and simplifies the process. Although the automaker has not provided a specific timeline or extent, it has stated that this technology will be implemented in the Model 3 production lines as well. Tesla might plan the Model 3's transition to coincide with the launch of a new model, as the casting production system's implementation has its own set of challenges.
