2017 Tesla Model 3: Some Secrets Are Too Ugly To Show
Tesla revealed its Model 3 some time back yet there was a very minimal coverage on the vehicle’s interior – nothing was said about its instrument cluster. Plus, the prototypes did not show a traditional dash display, speedometer and the other bits that we commonly see.
The Model 3 is equipped with the big center built-in touchscreen, just like all other Tesla models, but that can’t be the sole display in the model. It looks like we’ll have to wait for the Part 3 of the Model 3 unveiling to know for sure.
As reported by InsideEVs, a Model 3 reservation holder, Matt Parra, feels that the car will will not have a head up display or even a console area that shows cluster information.
This is backed up by Elon Musk’s announcement at the recent Q4 earnings call which revealed that the Model 3 will only have one computer, in a bid to save costs.
Parra is positive that the instrument cluster has been hidden in the Model 3 and this can only be seen by the one behind the steering wheel.
That said, many buyers simply do not like the mock-up image of the instrument panel strip in front of the driver. They find the instrument panel strip as well as the large tablet display too ugly to be on a Tesla.
