Tesla is reportedly preparing to launch the revamped Model 3, also known as “Highland,” this month, according to Chinese media. Moreover, it appears that the Musk-led company has already allowed Chinese dealerships to accept pre-orders for the new model variant for a ¥1000 ($AU214) deposit.
Tesla will apparently reveal the Highland in the “next fortnight,” IT Home reports citing China Securities Journal.
