6. EV VIDEO: CAR WOW
New Tesla Model 3 - What Has Changed? It’s been 7 years since the Model 3 was first unveiled, and this is the biggest design overhaul yet! The question is, how much has changed?
Well, Mat’s got hands-on with the car to take a closer look. In terms of the design, there are a few notable changes. Up top, there are a pair of slimmer, sleeker headlights, and there’s also a big central vent as part of the bumper. This helps give it a more aggressive look compared to the previous model.
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
