Tesla has actually begun to present its brand-new center console in the Model Y electrical SUV after bringing it to the Model 3 in 2015.
Late in 2015, Tesla launched a refresh version of the Model 3 with several updated functions.
One of the greatest modifications was a new center console in between the two front seats.
Tesla got rid of the piano black glossy finish and replaced it with a matte finish.
Rather of having a phone battery charger included to the leading area, it has now been embedded into the consoles leading area, which is now covered in the synthetic leather material around on all side.
The center section now moves open instead of with a turning system in the previous variation.
That system has been known to be flimsy sometimes for some owners, while the brand-new sliding system is more robust and less based on remaining open.
The new center console was only incorporated into the brand-new Model 3 and not the Model Y in spite of the fact that the two vehicles were sharing an interior prior to the modifications.
Now a few months later on, TMC member joeinsac discovered a couple of brand-new Tesla Model Y at the Tesla center in Rocklin, California and they were geared up with the brand-new center console:
One of the vehicles was revealing a VIN 122,778 and a build date of 02/09/2021, which can give us an indicator of around when Tesla made the change in the Model Y.
Although, the car manufacturer still shows the old center console on the online configurator for the electric SUV:
Therefore, its unclear if all new Model Y lorries are being constructed with the brand-new center console or if Tesla is still transitioning the interior.
Sometimes, Tesla has been known to make hardware modifications gradually whenever they are all set and still produce some automobiles with some older hardware.
