The following is from the Model 3 forum re the new center console. See Post #4:

USB connections on 2021 Model 3

"The USB ports are located in the forward compartment of the center console, on the vertical surface closest to the rear of the car."

Look inside the center console compartment (beneath the sliding cover) for the front USB port(s.)

They are difficult to see. You need to lift the phone charger. Even then they are not illuminated so you really can't see them well. Feel around...you will find them.

In the updated center console for the Model 3 and Y the USB 3.0 data port has been moved to inside the glove box. A second front USB-C port has been added. The two front USB-C ports are now located inside the center console lower compartment (the one with the sliding cover) at the rear of the compartment. The wireless charging pad is powered directly (not via one of the USB-C ports.) The wireless charging pad is always visible with no hinged cover. The wireless charging pad does not does not flip up.

Based on the description above I would have to say yes. USB-C ports are inside of the enclosed center console.

I didn't realize that the USB plugs would be in a different location. I guess I bought the USB hub for no reason!
