EV Update: Tesla Model 3 Highland Has Been Updated In Europe

It’s official, the Tesla Model 3 Highland has been updated in Europe with a new exterior design and many interior unexpected upgrades. Project Highland has been the name for Tesla 3 update.  The update has been anticipated for years and has finally happened. When will the Tesla 3 Highland be available in the United States?

When you get your new tesla Highland, make sure that you have PPF installed to protect your paint & ceramic xtreme window film installed on the glass to protect whatever you have inside your car.

Changes to the Model 3 Highland include:

  • New design with a new sleeker front end; it’s more aerodynamic
  • New Ultra Red Color Option
  • More efficient with a longer range: max range is 421 (a 12% improvement)
  • New wheel cover inserts (helps with range)
  • New rear backseat touchscreen to control air circulation, entertainment & lighting in back
  • Front seats are ventilated
  • Rear seats are cushier
  • Larger trunk in back… no updated info on the frunk (front trunk)

This is the first major refresh in 6 years. In the past, they claimed to update the models on an ongoing basis. Deliveries for the Highland begin in October in Europe.

In other Tesla news, it dropped the FSD cost by $3,000. It was $15,000 for full self driving software and is now $12,000. That’s a lot of jack for a system that is not ready from prime time yet.  It’s still in beta…

Telsa Energy is working on a few items (let’s hope that includes supporting the TX power grid).

  • Virtual Power Company using homeowners Tesla PowerWalls & rooftop solar
  • PowerWall 3 energy storage battery
  • MegaPack’s Mega Factories: CA, TX, Berlin, AZ & China
