    I've noticed a change on my Model 3 Performance that I picked up June 1. The lower trim panel has a built-in cover/opening presumably for a hitch:

    2019 Model 3 Performance Hitch Cover?

    I am installing the EcoHitch Stealth and planned to install their Undercover accessory to cover the hole that you drill but turns out I don't need to drill a hole at all...bonus. I let Torklift Central know as well.

    That's exactly what we have in Europe if you take the towing package. I guess they applied the modification regarding the rear access for all cars produced since then.

    Cool, I've got that too on my 04/19 build here in the US. I'd only ever use it for a bike rack, but that'd be a nice option to have!

    Please check to see if the wiring for a trailer is also there.

    What's the build date? I'm Oct/2018 so I'm sure I don't have this but now I need to check!

    Interesting. My Performance 3 (see signature) doesn’t have it.
