Will someone identify what I circled in the photo of the Model 3 dash?
Appears to be an organic component, primarily composed of cellulose derived from a deceased plant.
A shadow from the windshield and/or door window.
Edit: probably shadow from the light passing through the glass roof as well.
Wood trim piece than spans the width of the dash:
And if you're referring specifically to the section that's a different color, I concur with what @Zaphod said.
Fair answer... anything under it other than the full length dash? Find it odd that it's there in the first place?
I believe its purpose is decorative. I imagine there's something under it (unless they're just sticking 2x4s in there), but nothing accessible so I'm not sure it matters.
Maybe so... I can see that now.
Pop up hud.
Air flowing through the full-width dash vent blows across the full-width dash trim, exuding a pleasant, woodsy scent for the vehicle's occupants. Different scents available, depending on the species of wood trim selected. Out here in California, I'm going with "Sequoia" for that Redwood forest smell.
Ooh, I'm hoping for cedar or maybe pine like a Christmas tree!
I remember Faraday "never gonna happen" Future supposedly was going to have some ridiculous feature like that in the monstrosity of the car they were going to make.
I think it is sunlight coming through the open door gap. If you watch the video (where the screen grab came from) you see that the size/shape of the light patch moves around as someone leans in the doorway, and later as he is closing the door.
I think you can see a blurry shadow of his face covering the right part of it now.
In the video(s) he says something in effect (extremely paraphrasing) about being surprised at just how much attention these vehicles are getting.
So us needing to pick apart a shadow on the dashboard seems apropos.
Am I the only one who absolutely hates that wood trim? It makes the dashboard look like an office desk with a steering wheel attached....
you are not the only one. it makes me
He mentioned he's never seen product "fans" quite like this before (and he used to be with Apple). The head of global marketing for Tesla came from Burberry and said (and I paraphrase), "I've never seen this level of enthusiasm for a product... you don't see people travelling to meet for a trench-coat convention [referring to Burberry]". It was in relation to our Tesla Owners Club global summit.
We are a very interesting group of enthusiasts that certainly rival any other car brand in the world.
I view it as a mix of pride/honor and also dismay/concern that they are working on a product that is so high profile, but there are masses watching every little move and picking apart every little detail.
If it is real wood, that would be unusual for a car in it's price range. I think most cars just have plastic that looks like wood. Nice touch.
I look forward to using it as a cutting board when preparing sandwiches on long road trips.
I don't really get your point.
Don't worry the Vegans or some other group will make Tesla get rid of it and replace it with some synthetic oil based garbage!
If it's not 'real' wood I will be surprised. If it's real I'll leave it alone. If it's plastic it's getting wrapped.
I was really hoping it's from a naturally Fallen Cali redwood. That would be very . The latest cutting edge EV with a reminder of the past.
