Its been called the Ford Model T of the modern age. Elon Musk recently revealed the interior of the new Tesla Model 3 and the revolutionary design does not look to disappoint.
The Model 3’s dashboard (or lack there of) is sparse to say the least. No speedometer, no gauges, no air-vents… nothing you may find in conversational automobiles. The car, which will retail at $35,000 doesnt even have a key. Instead, drivers have to use a card or their phone to open the doors or start the engine.
All the typical essentials you would expect to find in a car’s dashboard have been replaced by a 15-inch touch screen. The screen, which sits in the middle of the dash panel, will provide drivers with all the necessary information that they may need. You can quickly find out the car’s speed, battery life and other essential information by using buttons built into the steering wheel.
Regarding the lack of air-vents, Elon Musk tweeted, “Model 3 uses two intersecting planes of air for vertical control and lateral fins hidden within the dashboard for horizontal control.’
There will be a premier version of the Tesla Model 3 which will have an added $5000 on the price tag. The premium version will feature better-grade materials, a wood-veneer dash bar, heated rear seats, phone chargers, a 12 speaker sound system and a panoramic glass roof. This premium version of the car will be able to travel up to 130 miles per charge whilst the entry model will get a decent 220-mile range.
Both versions will feature Tesla’s Enhanced Autopilot, front facing radar, (a whopping) 7 cameras, 12 untrasonic sensors and the Nvidia Drive PX2 processor.
Regarding the design, Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla’s Chief Desginer said, “The interior is the most innovative part of the design. We took away everything that is not necessary. What we delivered on the interior is unlike any other car out there. It will age gracefully.”
