During a shareholder’s meeting in November, Musk said there would be “part 3” unveiling for the Model 3 in “three to four months,” which falls in line with the March timeframe. Hence, the company might finally share more information about the Model 3’s interior also Musk also hinted that there could be a few surprises.
“It’s going to be pretty close to what I showed at the Model 3 unveiling, with some polish and refinements and a few more details that are added,” Musk said. “It will be better than what was unveiled, I guess in some ways it will be a lot better.”
The automaker plans to begin production of the Model 3 in July, but deliveries are not expected until late 2017. Tesla has received more than 373,000 pre-orders for the $35,000 mass market sedan since March of last year.
