Tesla Model 3 Redesign
As I was looking at Tesla's website recently, something I do periodically, I noticed something. Tesla has completely redesigned its Model 3 page and there are plenty of new images and information available.
The first part shows the safety of the Model 3 and that Tesla seeks to design their vehicles to exceed safety standards. As more and more EVs are made, Tesla will need to have other factors about its vehicles that make them stand out. Safety is definitely one of those. Tesla vehicles are very durable and have software to assist with safety. My Model 3 RWD feels like a tank compared to my previous 2009 Honda Fit that I drove.
Tesla also shares the range of the Model 3 and that the long range version has 325 miles or more of range. I still don't know if this version of the Model 3 is using LFP batteries or not, but I hope it is. The reason I hope it is the 325 miles of range is quite less than the prior version that had 358 miles of range.
Tesla also shares that you can recharge 147 miles of range in about 15 minutes at a Supercharger. This is true if you are charging between 20% to 80% and makes for a time that is not much longer than getting gas. In the future, Supercharging will take about as long as filling up a gas tank.
Tesla also shares that going on trips is easy and not a problem for Tesla vehicles. Many people have range anxiety about EVs still, even to this day, but you can drive quite far on them. On my Model 3 RWD, I can go nearly 300 miles of range even after some battery degradation, assuming careful driving and warm weather.

Features of the Model 3
Tesla shares that they have an all-glass roof and do over the air updates with a center console screen that is 15 inches and has a touch display. I can vouch that Tesla has done a very good job with their display and software. It's very easy to use, and I love that I don't have a bunch of nobs, levers, and things to use.
Tesla shares that the Model 3 is built around the driver and leverages unrivaled technology and premium materials with plenty of legroom. I agree - I am 6'4'' and still have plenty of legroom in the driver seat of my Model 3.
Tesla shares that their glass roof provides those riding in the Model 3 with a brighter and more spacious experience and seamless view of the sky. Tesla also has heated seats.
One thing that was strange is that Tesla shared that the Model 3 has side mirrors and a steering wheel for maximum comfort. Those two things aren't much different in a Tesla than another vehicle - there are fewer controls, for sure, and the mirrors adjust automatically from software, but I don't see that as a stand-out feature.
Tesla shares that the sound of the Model 3 has 14 speakers, with a subwoofer and dual amplifiers. This is true for the long range version, but is not for the RWD that I drive. Still, the sound system is very good in my car.
There are plenty of more details on the new Model 3 page that Tesla redesigned, and I think this is a good move by Tesla. Tesla is going to start advertising and needs to educate those who don't know about EVs or are skeptical about EVs.
What do you think of the new Model 3 page on Tesla's website?
