Tesla Model 3 - Dashboard Concept

Will 2017 be the year of Tesla Model 3? At last years Telsa Model 3 introduction event Elon Musk stated that first Model 3 will be shipped to customers by the end of 2017. Latest news show that currently production lines are set up and first Model 3 shall be produced by July 2017 and delivered mainly to employees as beta tester. For this reason it is very likely that we will see some Model 3 on Californias roads by mid of this year. Some expert expect the total production of cars for 2017 to 30000 up tp 50000 cars, where high production rates will be reached not before 2018.

The design of the Model 3 is well known since the introduction event back in March 2016, and it is expected that the outside will not change much. But there are some roumors that there will be quite some changes on the interior of the car especially the dashbord.

Recently I came across a new dashboard study. Have a look here.
