Tesla has launched another set of a refresh for the Model 3 electric vehicle for the new year, now focusing on its looks, heated steering wheel, and other massive upgrades for the car that is manufactured in China. Reports say that the new Model 3 2021 is close to its mid-size SUV counterpart, the Model Y, which is also set for its latest release this year. 

One of the most popular electric vehicle manufacturers and clean energy company, Tesla, is gearing up for 2021 with bigger and better EV releases after its massive success in the past year. The company has set its sights on its current electric car lineup instead of giving innovations and "Models" to the public, starting with the Model 3. 

According to Electrek, Tesla's Model 3 has been through a series of refresh and redesigns in recent times, as October 2020's initial designs are not yet finished and have continued to 2021. New features are dawning on the electric vehicle, which is one of Tesla's most iconic units in the world, also one of the top sellers from the car company.

The Model 3 2021 Refresh is a long-awaited one from the company, as it initially focused on other variants in its electric vehicle lineup. The rumors and speculations have released in October 2020, which promised new steering wheel designs and the center console. 

However, it was not the only focus of Tesla as it took into account the other needs of the EV, complete with the heat pump and other components that screams for a much-needed upgrade. The company has delivered well on that, featuring most of the Model 3's criticism and wishes from its current drivers.
