Tesla Could Soon Add A Rear Display To Model 3 And Model Y Vehicles
Some Model 3 and Model Y cars might get a second display, situated in the back of the car, in the future according to a new report.
The second display would allow people to watch media in the rear of the car just like they can in newer Model S and Model X cars.
According to a new report citing a tweet by @greentheonly, current model 3 and Model Y cars ship with a new AMD-powered circuit board that is capable of powering the second display.
Notably, the part isn’t the same one that is already being used by Tesla so this isn’t a case of the company sharing parts between models.
Connectors on the circuit board of the AMD powered Model 3/Y show that it has a connector to power a “2nd display”. It is possible that the second display will be in the back of the car like the new Model S and Model X.
New Model 3 and Model Y vehicles have a circuit board that’s similar to the ones in the Model S and Model X, but they’re not the same, so this isn’t just the case of Tesla sharing parts between the two cars and letting the 2nd display port go unused.
Of course, little of this actually matters to most people right now — actually buying a Tesla is almost impossible unless you are willing to wait a year or buy used. And if you go for that second option, we recently reported that you’ll likely pay even more!
