CEO Elon Musk confirms that India-bound Tesla Model 3 will come with only a central display showing all the information; ready to enter production from July
Tesla Model 3 won’t get any conventional instrument cluster or Heads-up display. This information has been confirmed by Tesla boss Elon Musk, while he was replying to a one of his followers in Twitter. In that case, the India-bound Tesla Model 3 will get only a large central digital display, which will show various information about the EV and the driver will be able to give control a few things from there as well.
Few days back, Tesla CEO took Twitter to inform the world that he Model 3 will be a much more affordable version of the Model S. While the power and range of the Model 3 will lesser than the Model S, the interior too will be pretty basic compared to the flagship Tesla car. Now the fact is again re-confirmed by Elon Musk.
Last year in August, we reported about Tesla Model 3’s interior when the car was spotted testing on road. The spyshot showed us a large tab-like digital display positioned at the centre of the dashboard beside the steering wheel. There was no conventional instrument cluster in front of the driver behind the steering wheel. The horizontal central display comes with map, connectivity and other infotainment options, while it offers the driver to start and stop couple of functions just by touching.
Upon its launch, the Model 3 is going to be the most affordable electric car from the American EV maker. Also, this is going to be the first Tesla model coming to India. Production of the Model 3 is scheduled to begin from July this year and the first batch could arrive in our country sometime later this year or early 2018.
