The newly redesigned Tesla Model 3, internally dubbed the “Highland” during development, has recently been spotted being delivered for the first time in several European countries, including the Netherlands, Germany, France, Poland and more. On Wednesday, the first wave of refreshed Model 3 units went out to customers in Austria, as seen in one photo shared from Vienna.
Photographs taken by Franz Stadlmann in Vienna were shared on X by Esther Kokkelmans on Wednesday, showing the Model 3 and indicating that initial deliveries have begun. The pictured sedan is sporting Tesla’s stealth grey paint color, as can be seen in the post below.
In addition to being shipped to customers in European countries, the Gigafactory Shanghai-built Model 3 has begun initial deliveries in China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and others, and the vehicle is expected to hit even more countries in the coming months.
Tesla Europe also shared a link to schedule a test drive of the upgraded Model 3, now available in several countries.
In recent months, we've witnessed large batches of the upgraded Model 3 staged outside Tesla's Gigafactory in Shanghai, ready to embark on their journey to customers abroad. This new iteration of the Model 3 boasts several enhanced features, including redesigned headlights, a simplified interior, ambient lighting, and more.
While the Model 3 "Highland" is yet to become available in North American markets, the sedan has been observed undergoing testing on U.S. roads in recent months. In most instances, the updated Model 3 has been seen veiled during testing. However, there was a recent sighting in California where it was being driven without any coverings.
