The Tesla Model 3 is getting an overhaul in 2023

We have some news that the Tesla Model 3 will undergo some major changes for 2023, most of which will be to reduce the cost of the car. This will likely lead to changes to the interior with less expensive materials and changes to the exterior as well.

This Tesla Model 3 upgrade, dubbed “Project Highland,” suggests that Tesla will be making some major changes to this vehicle. Tesla’s Model 3 has been on the market for about 5 years and most of the changes to it have been fairly minor.

The biggest change is to the RWD or standard model 3 to have LFP batteries that can be charged to 100% regularly. This is a big improvement over the standard range vehicle.

Tesla will most likely reduce the number of components on the Model 3 and keep the major features that customers like while getting rid of things that customers don’t use as much. We could see Tesla removing the heated seats and steering wheel from the vehicle.

The Highland Project

The redesigned Model 3 should be ready around the 3rd quarter of 2023. The improvements that seem to be on the cards are the Model Y changes that could be made to the Model 3. These would include front and rear giga-casts and a structural battery pack . These will be needed on the Model 3 if costs are to be significantly reduced.

Keep in mind, the Tesla Model 3 has gone through improvements over the years, as mentioned. Software and hardware have improved substantially, and customers may want visually noticeable changes. I think Tesla should up the paint quality and get rid of the heated seats and steering wheel. If I do that and use two gig casts for the front and back and use a structural battery pack, that will cut costs down a lot.

I have a Model 3 RWD that I got in August 2022. It was a great car and the 100% charge was very beneficial. It has very good mileage and the only downside I can think of is that it is smaller and lower than the Model Y. Being a tall person, the Model Y would be easier to get in and out of, but that is the only advantage of the Model Y for me.

It will be interesting to see what Tesla decides to change in the Model 3 and what it removes. For the most part, I think they will try to build the Model 3 much more efficiently, with major improvements to simplify a build.

Let’s see what Tesla comes up with. Do you think Tesla will be able to significantly reduce the cost of the Model 3?
