The Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are the same car. The sedan and the SUV share a platform and 70% of its parts. After the recent update of the Model 3, thanks to which it has adopted some of the improvements introduced a few months ago in the Model Y (wireless charging for smartphones, USB connections -C, removal of the exterior chrome, heat pump, electric boot, etc.), they are more now than ever.
The main difference between these D-segment models is found in their habitability: thanks to its greater height, the SUV offers an interior space far superior to that of its little brother, as well as a practical tailgate for the trunk. Also, from the moment of its presentation, the future launch of a seven-seater version was confirmed.
Now, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has confirmed that this variant’s production will begin next November, while the first deliveries will take place in early December. The third row of seats will be an extra valued at $3,000 in the US market.
Although some pre-production units of the seven-seater version were sighted, the truth is what the third row of seats will look like in the final version is still unknown.
