The Model 3 refresh is here, rumoured for many months, seen in posts on Twitter, and now finally hitting Australian shores.
Finally, the updated 2021 Model 3 interior/exterior updated features have finally been seen in Brisbane Australia.
In the carpark of the Tesla showroom I found in the car park being readied for delivery the new refreshed 2021 Model 3.
Seeing the new Model 3 refresh up close and personal shows the strides Tesla is taking to make their fleet of vehicles better. The new console looks gorgeous. These cars are stunning. The quality of the cars looks incredible with little no visible issues identified.
The number of Model 3 s being prepared numbered in the 20-30 vehicles. This is encouraging as the popularity and uptake of electric vehicles can only be good for the environment.
Model Y thinking
I had an opportunity to talk to a Tesla representative who was excited for the new refresh.
The representative advised that a lot of the model 3 buyers would have liked to buy the model Y. However they did not want to wait till the end of next year. So they decided to purchase a model 3 with the intention of trading up when the Model Y hits the shores.
I am super excited about this type of thinking as it encourages the uptake of electric vehicles and increases the availability of used Model 3 towards the end of next year.
For those who may be looking to get into a car but cannot afford brand new, this may be the hopeful step they can look forward to.
I was grateful for the opportunity to take some photos of the new vehicles and just want to say thanks to the representative who didn’t mind.

Below you can see the white on white performance model 3 with the turbine wheels and red calipers. (on the right)
Next to this is an all wheel drive model 3 white on black with the new sports wheels.
Up close the Sport wheels look much better in person.
Lastly there are a large number of standard range model 3 with the new aero wheels.
The chrome delete door handles and trim looks spectacular and a really nice feature to the Model 3 2021 refresh.

The Model Refresh is here!!! After seeing the vehicles I texted Andrew the optometrist. I explained that the new vehicles had arrived at Tesla in Brisbane. He advised me he is picking up his car this week. I am super excited for him.
It is amazing to me that we live in an age when technology and beautiful design are merging to deliver incredible products that can make the world a better place to live.
With the Model 3 refresh I know that Tesla is moving in the right direction.
I just hope that these vehicles become more prevalent and available to the average person and allow more electric vehicles onto the roads.
