After the news of Tesla’s 2021 Model 3 refresh earlier this week, we now get a first look at Tesla’s new center console coming with the update.
Earlier this week, we learned that Tesla is releasing a Model 3 refresh with several updated features.
The new vehicle is listed as a ‘2021’ model year, which is a rare actual model year change for Tesla, and it is starting to roll off the line at Tesla’ Fremont factory.
We have seen the vehicle, but we were not able to share any pictures so we just listed the new features that we could visually confirm.
One of the biggest changes was a new center console and now that more Model 3 vehicles are being produced with the update, some people are starting to spot them.
@jstesla on Twitter shared the first picture revealing the new design:
As we reported earlier this week, Tesla got rid of the piano black glossy finish and replaced it with a matte finish.
It embedded the phone charge at top section, which is now wrapped in the faux leather material around on all side.
The center section now slides open instead of with a flipping system in the previous version.
Here’s a picture of the old Model 3 center console for comparison:
