    Does the Model 3 have a titanium undershield to protect the battery like the S and X? If not is anything there or just a different material? Thanks!

    It would make absolutely no sense NOT to have it given how it’s positive “impact” in the blog discussing it many years back.

    You wouldn’t see the shield though as it sits under the black plastic on the undercarriage.
