Recent reports from China indicate that Tesla will make some notable improvements to the Gigafactory Shanghai-built Model 3. If the Spec deals prove to be accurate, Tesla’s most affordable sedans will soon receive a powerlift gate and trunk, some factory chrome wipes, the Model Y’s “Octovalve”, new headlights and taillights.
The reports were initially posted on Weibo, a Chinese social media platform, where people familiar with them posted them. As Tesla owner-enthusiast shared on Twitter Es Tesla__Mania, The rumored Model 3 improvements will include several Model Y-inspired upgrades and some interesting changes that Elon Musk himself seems to have mentioned.
For example, in July, Elon Musk responded to a request from the China-based Model 3 owner Requesting Power Liftgate Update. The dubious owner lost the ability to use his legs, which made using the Model 3’s manual liftgate and trunk a challenge. Elon Musk, who responded to the story, said the power liftgate upgrade for the owner’s Model 3 will be installed for free. Of course, spec specs were inspired by the fact that this feature would eventually be standardized for the Model 3.
Other features mentioned in the rumor include the “Octovalve” of the Model Y and a new Frank. Last month, there were reports from buyers of the Model 3 that Tesla had updated the frank design of the all-electric sedan. Considering that Update design of the Frank of the Model 3 It was very similar to the Model Y, and there were rumors that Tesla would like to use it in all electric crossovers, including the mid-size sedan, such as the Octavalve and the heat pump.
This also applies to Made-in-China Model 3 enhancements related to the vehicle’s headlights and taillights. Tesla has not officially announced any improvements to these components in the Model 3, but reports from owners indicate that the new vehicles Equipped with bright and clear taillights. As for the factory chrome deletion option, such ulations do not seem to be far off as the Model Y is already shipped without chrome accents.
The most interesting parts of the recent rumors from China are the new steering wheel, the “2.0” version of the center console and the double layer glass for better sound insulation. Although in line with Tesla’s trend, it seems that recent Model 3 owners have not yet reported on these specs. Make permanent improvements To its vehicles over time. Excellent sound insulation will definitely be a welcome upgrade of the Model 3 as the wind noise will be noticeable at higher speeds. One reason for this is the lack of an internal combustion engine that silences or overcomes wind noise in conventional cars.
