Tesla releases new Model 3 wheels with 2021 refresh

Tesla has released a new Model 3 wheel design as part of its 2021 refresh and the vehicles are starting to ship.

Over the last few days, we have been reporting on Tesla currently updating the Model 3 with a significant refresh that includes several new features.

The rollout is kind of strange since the automaker has yet to confirm any of the new features despite starting to ship out the new vehicle from Fremont factory.

Now new Model 3 cars were spotted being shipped out of Fremont factory with new wheels.

An Electrek reader spotted truckloads of new 2021 Model 3 vehicles near Tesla’s Fremont factory and we can see that they are equipped with a brand new wheel design never seen on a Model 3 until now:

The new design is similar to Tesla’s 19’’ Sport Wheels for Model 3 with some slight differences.

However, They almost look

First look at Tesla’s new center console in 2021 Model 3 refresh

After the news of Tesla’s 2021 Model 3 refresh earlier this week, we now get a first look at Tesla’s new center console coming with the update.

Earlier this week, we learned that Tesla is releasing a Model 3 refresh with several updated features.

The new vehicle is listed as a ‘2021’ model year, which is a rare actual model year change for Tesla, and it is starting to roll off the line at Tesla’ Fremont factory.

We have seen the vehicle, but we were not able to share any pictures so we just listed the new features that we could visually confirm.

One of the biggest changes was a new center console and now that more Model 3 vehicles are being produced with the update, some people are starting to spot them.

@jstesla on Twitter shared the first picture revealing the new design:

As we reported earlier this week,

Tesla is doing a Model 3 refresh and we’ve seen it

Tesla is making an update to Model 3, which is significant enough that people other than Elon Musk would call it a refresh, and we’ve seen it.

Electrek can confirm some of the new features.

Over the last few months, we have heard a lot of rumors about a Model 3 update.

It started when Tesla updated the Model 3’s frunk and then submitted an application to produce the Model 3 with a chrome delete in China.

Now we can confirm that Tesla is indeed planning to bundle several updates to the Model 3, and that it is about to start delivery of the new version.

We have seen pictures of the new Model 3, but we are not able to share the pictures at this time in order to protect sources.

The pictures confirmed several updates to the Model 3 produced in the US including a chrome delete to

Clean Hair Care Brand Innersense Organic Beauty Announces Packaging Refresh With Transition To Bottles Made Of 100% PCR

“Our refreshed packaging begins our transition into more circular packaging options such as refillables and other sustainable alternatives. Hair care poses unique packaging challenges as opposed to skincare or makeup,” shares Greg Starkman, Innersense Organic Beauty founder. “Hair care packaging is larger in size, heavier in weight, and typically sits in our showers, so the bottles have to be functional and safe in a wet environment. PCR plastic is the most natural next step for our packaging. By purchasing PCR, we are doing our part to spur demand for recycled materials, which we hope will have ripple effects toward improving the domestic recycling market.”

The packaging update contributes to the brand’s Mission in Action, a plan introduced three years ago with the goal to become “plastic proactive.” This year, Innersense Organic Beauty made the commitment to cleaning up the equivalent of the last 5 years of their plastic output
