Tesla has inked a deal with LG to have the South Korea-based company be the sole supplier of the 15-plus inch center display fitted on the Model 3.

The electric car maker recently unveiled the vehicle in question, revealing a streamlined dashboard design where it sported only one screen in the middle. In other words, it doesn't have gauges and the like behind the steering wheel. With that said, it looks like Tesla is switching up its supplier of the center display from TPK Holdings, the company who provided screens for the Model S and Model X, to LG.

"LG Display is a sole supplier for the 15-plus inch center display of Model 3," an industry source who wished to remain unidentified tells Reuters.

It should be noted that Tesla only introduced the one-screen setup as a "production intention." That means that the company is still going to test it out thoroughly to determine whether it's feasible or safe enough to be included in the final product.

In the same vein, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also said that more elements will be added in and improved.

So far, Tesla and LG haven't made any official announcement regarding the news yet, and spokespeople from the two companies did not comment.

It's also worth mentioning that the Model 3 met impressive early success, with Musk announcing via Twitter that 198,000 preorders for it came within 24 hours, even though the electric vehicle is scheduled to arrive in 2017.

The Model 3 is expected to go for 215 miles on a single charge and run from 0 to 60 MPH in less than six seconds. It's also designed to achieve a five-star rating on all fronts, just like the Model S and the Model X.
