The Model S will see some significant changes to its interior this year. After months of rumors, Tesla confirmed the revisions in a few images released just ahead of its quarterly earnings call due later this afternoon.
Some of the changes – like the move to a widescreen – are things that have caught on since Model 3. Others are entirely new.
(Update: Tesla has updated its website with updated order pages that say the Model X SUV will also receive the revisions below!)
Here’s what we’ve spotted so far:
An airplane-style steering “yoke” (similar to the one spotted in prototypes of Tesla’s new Roadster) instead of a standard round wheel.
The front center display is now a 17-inch widescreen, instead of a 17-inch tall / portrait display. The resolution, meanwhile, goes from 1900 × 1200 to 2200 × 1300.
In addition to the driver’s 12.3-inch screen above the steering fork, there is also now an 8-inch screen on the rear (presumably to make it easier for passengers to play the car’s built-in games. on the back, as shown.)
Tesla’s earnings call is expected to begin at 3:30 p.m. PT. If they mention anything else about the interior, we’ll update this article.
