Tesla Model 3: Inside look like a "spaceship"
Back on the controversial dashboard of the Tesla Model 3, which raises many questions. Three days after the presentation of the car "mainstream" the specialist in electrical, it nevertheless has some answers.
Tastes and colors, we do not argue, they say. However, if the exterior design of the Tesla Model 3 is not unanimous, it is far agreed and consensual than inside, that some even described as unacceptable.
From Friday morning conference and the publication of the first photos in the process, we emphasized that the official communication evaded the question of the driver and infotainment on board, yet central on previous models. All we know of the dashboard, it draws from what we saw in the very briefly at the revelation of the new model, and the limited information that a representative of Tesla has delivered to journalists during a brief trial.
Although the engineering director had then claimed that they showed "really what they intend to produce," we remember when the CEO had announced the day before the event was the first two parts of the launch, and the cockpit was probably not final. The CEO warned that important elements are added to the Model 3 and others evolve by its circulation end of 2017.
Meanwhile Elon Musk has just revealed on Twitter that the wheel was not in its final form, in response to a user that called him a similar driving that of a Ferrari, with commands such as turn signals, headlights or the wipers. The CEO invited him to "wait to see the real steering wheel and the system of the Model 3," adding that "it looks like a spaceship."
In the same way as rims contribute much alone in the aesthetics of a car, strapped steering wheel controls could dress the dashboard.
Finally, it is likely that minimalism is symbolic. Just as amazing grille devoid of distinctive grille serves as highlighting the lack of engine, so uncluttered dashboard could focus on autopilot capabilities of the Model 3, which will be to set a reminder. The front almost symmetrical reduce the distinction between the driver and passenger, both front seats are basically two passenger seats.
And if the steering wheel was retractable and could retract?
