The front mask where the dummy air intake has been removed gives a different impression from the existing car.
Although the shape of the headlight is different from that of the model S and model X, we maintain "Tesla car likeness" that you can understand at a glance.
195-inch wheel of 235 / 40R19. Optional 20 inch wheels are also selectable.
A camera with a proximity sensor function is embedded in the side marker. With this camera, we will acquire surrounding information.

The rear is not a hatchback but a trunk specification.

Push the card key over the center of the B pillar to unlock it.
In order to lower the air resistance, the door knob which is normally stored is pushed with the thumb and levers are released, it was a simple structure unique to Model 3.
The door is frameless. In addition, when the door was opened and closed, the window glass slightly opened and the opening and closing of the door became heavy with the internal pressure ... It was detailed consideration to eliminate the inconvenience of ......
Plate of "Model 3" on side sill.
The sense of liberation of the glass roof feels soon after getting in. It is not a ratio of sunroof.
A front speaker on the pillar extension.
Mirror in the visor. In addition, the LED lights automatically when opening the visor.

Dashboard treated with wood panel
The air outlet of the air conditioner was concealed so as to be hidden at the seams.
15 inch touch screen. As if it is a large tablet, the display is arranged in an independent state than the model S or model X.
There is no gear lever etc in the center console, it is a storage space.
Because it is EV without gear operation, the pedal is of course 2 pedals.
In addition, there is no door knob on the inside, it opens with a button push.
Model 3 is a 5-seater common sedan
The central emergency seat also serves as a drink holder.
Since the feet space of the rear seat is flat, I feel unexpectedly spatial relaxation.
Under the air conditioning outlet, there was a USB port for charging.
Model 3 There are few buttons in the car except for the door switch. All the basic operation is done on the touch screen.

Also, touch panel opens and closes bonnet, trunk and power supply port.
Tap on bonnet ......
The bonnet lock is released.
Because it is EV, there is no engine, it is a luggage space.
The bonnet back was hammered into a honeycomb shape.
It is like this when putting A4 size paper in the front luggage. There are places where you can put a few bags for a little bag.
Also, ants such as having a hook to hang the handle of the bag are ants.
When I turned the mat, there was a tow hook.
