Tesla could introduce the facelifted Model 3 in 2021
The best-selling electric sedan would get a refresh
Introduced in 2016, the Tesla Model 3 is now four years old. Four years is the mid-career period for most family sedans. It's also generally the time for a facelift. As a result, the Californian brand may be preparing a major upgrade of the Model 3.
Although still on the world's electric car sales podium, the smallest Tesla is expected to receive significant upgrades by 2021. Externally, the Model 3 will have slightly redesigned headlights and a black trim instead of the chrome around the glazing as on the Model Y.
The interior will feature a new centre console and a new steering wheel with a much better appearance. The electric sedan could also be fitted with dual-layer glass, which would considerably reduce wind noise. In terms of equipment, a heat pump will be fitted to reduce electricity consumption in winter.
This option will nevertheless reduce the volume of the front boot. Speaking of boot space, the car would also have a rear boot with a motorized tailgate. In terms of customisation, Tesla could also offer new wheels and new exterior colors for the facelifted Model 3. The car should arrive in 2021.
