This Week in Tesla: V11 Coming Soon, Model Y Gets the Same Upgrades as Model 3

V11 Coming Soon -
In a recent tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, he stated that a new software update is coming, leading many to assume that he is referring to the highly anticipated yearly update. The yearly update is so significant because it is akin to a new Apple iOS software, just for Teslas. This year’s release has several anticipated features, with the most anticipated likely being the FSD beta. Another highly anticipated feature is one that other car manufacturers have had for a couple years now, a top-down 360° camera. As with last year’s update, this year’s will also likely include more games in the arcade. There will also likely be many more features, “so many things you may want & some you didn’t know you wanted” as Elon stated. The current Tesla FSD Beta has been making a ton of progress recently, as updates are sent out to the select few that are graced with the early access version weekly.
Model Y Gets the Same Updates as Model 3 -
There have been many small hardware updates to the Model 3 being put into production over the recent months, and most of them are now making their way into the Model Y. The updates include, auto-dimming mirrors, silver scroll wheels on the steering wheel, a storage device for Sentry Mode and Dashcam, an updated glovebox, and laminated windows. The only update that Model 3 received that has not yet been added to Model Y is the new center console. Tesla will likely wait until some of the previous inventory of Model Y’s with the current center console are sold before making the switch.
