The Tesla Model 3 Will Keep its Boring Dash

The Tesla Model 3 Will Keep its Boring Dash

The company’s CEO has confirmed the upcoming Model 3 will only have one screen.

And it won’t be a traditional instrument cluster in front of the steering wheel. When the first Model 3 prototype debuted last year, it boasted a rather simple interior and the dash was noticeably bare, sporting one giant screen at the center.

According to Elon Musk, that’s how the production model will be, saying on Twitter “the more autonomous a car is, the less dash info you need.” One person on Twitter responded with a valid question, “but you can’t build a car with that mindset today considering autonomous software release is dependent on regulatory approval?” Musk replied saying that the Model 3 will still only have one display.

He also ruled out a head-up display (HUD) in the car and there won’t even be an option for a traditional speedometer if someone wanted to purchase one. In fact, Musk is simply telling potential buyers that they “won’t care” that there isn’t a traditional speedometer and that everything will be presented on the large center screen.

    I think it looks kind of cool without the dash, but I’ll see how it feels without one once I drive one.
