WEBFI-TECH-BREAKING! Tesla Made Several Changes To Model 3 / Y Highlighted In a New Post

Hours ago we learned that Tesla’s made several changes to the Model 3 and Model Y that were highlighted in a new internal post. Some of these new Tesla changes were previously reported. These changes apply to both Fremont and Shanghai built Model 3 and Model Y Tesla cars and will be phased into new regions. This Model Y and Model 3 transition will be completed by Q2 2022, reports Sawyer Merritt Twitter, who regularly provides breaking Tesla news and has apparently seen Tesla’s internal post.

Sawy says some of these new Model Y and Model 3 changes are:

• AMD Processor
• Li-ion Low voltage battery: Lighter than the outgoing lead-acid battery and is easier to replace.)
• Heated Wiper Park: Helps un-freeze wiper from lower section of the windshield. Feature can be activated from mobile app or center display.

He says all cars come with necessary hardware and feature may be activated via OTA update shortly after delivery. Owners will be notified release notes.

• Updated Speaker Count: There are now 13 speakers (from 14) plus subwoofer: Tesla has removed the center instrument panel speaker.

According to Sawyer, Tesla says they did this to reduce complexity and redundancy with no appreciable difference in sound quality, and the new speaker set up gives them more flexibility in the future or sound audio improvement they said.

Trailer Auxiliary (tow hitch enabled vehicles): It’s been disabled. New 12 LV Li-ion battery requires a new power conversion adapter to be compatible with 12-volt trailer power. Adapter will be available in Mid-2022 & owners can retrofit then. Trailer lights/brakes not impacted.

Finally, Tesla notes that they have NO plans to offer any of these options above as service retrofits. That includes the AMD processor.


Tesla Model Y changes. Tesla Model 3 update. Tesla Model Y and Model 3 transition. New Tesla updates.

    Tesla has a new temporary approval from giga Berlin to make from 500 per week to a maximum of 2000 bodies..Most processes,like the press paint shop and some lines are allowed to run to a limit.Not sure if they are allowed to sell the cars.Maybe with the understanding they are first production cars and at a large discount.

    Recently picked up LRMY, little bummed about just missing out on AMD processor, but other changes not so much. If they updated suspension options, I would put in a new order tomorrow. Factory ride quality is my biggest gripe for the money spent. Otherwise extremely happy with vehicle.

    Heard about the temporarily approval that Tesla got for the Giga Berlin factory.More parts of the factory will be allowed to run on a limited basis. One step closer to final approval.

    Can we retrofit new lithium 12 VDC battery to replace "wet" lead/acid batteries considering different charging requirements which may need charging circuit hardware update as well?
