Tesla Model 3 2024

Tesla Model 3 is updated for 2024

The Tesla Model 3 is being updated for 2024, with the aim of making it more refined, comfortable and premium, with improved aerodynamics, new lighting, and a brand-new interior.

Perhaps most interestingly, the stalks that are currently mounted on the steering column are being removed and replaced with steering wheel controls, including both haptic switches and physical buttons.

On the outside, an optimised body shape features sharper body lines, and aero-optimised surfaces reduce drag, improve wind noise and increase range.

The headlights feature a new design, and revised tail lights have brighter colours and are integrated into the liftgate to improve fit.

The wheels benefit from updated styling with improved aerodynamics, with tyres optimised to reduce noise and improve range.

There are two new colours, Ultra Red and Stealth Grey. Ultra Red is a high-chroma colour with dynamic depth created from a multi-coat paint. Stealth Grey is a dark grey metallic colour.

Inside the updated Model 3, the revised cabin design gains more premium materials, with customisable ambient lighting around the cabin. Ventilated front seats and heated seats all-round are fully integrated into automatic climate controls.

The cabin is quieter thanks to acoustic glass, improved suspension bushes, seals and sound-dampening materials. A redesigned centre console covered in aluminium has dual wireless phone chargers, along with one front and two rear USB-C charging ports.

A new Tesla-designed premium audio system features 17 speakers, dual subwoofers and dual amplifiers for Long Range vehicles, and 9 speakers, a single subwoofer and amplifier for Rear-Wheel Drive vehicles.

An all-new 8-inch rear display screen features integrated climate control, ventilation, and entertainment.

Prices for the new Model 3 haven’t been announced for the UK yet, but there has been a significant price increase in China, so this can also be expected for Europe, and WLTP driving range figures are yet to be confirmed.
