All Tesla Model 3s now come standard with heated steering wheel and heated rear seats

It is Thursday night, which means Tesla is updating their website. One of the bigger changes is to the Model 3, with all variants now including a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats as standard equipment.

The change is noted on the Design Studio under the ‘Interior & Convenience’ detailed descriptions.


Until now, only the Long Range (LR) and Performance variants included the features.

The Standard Range Plus (SR+), now called the Rear-Wheel Drive Model 3, has always had heated rear seats installed from the factory, but has been software locked.

Tesla added a software upgrade last year, allowing owners to unlock the heated rear seats for $400 CAD.

The upgrade is still available in the mobile app.

With the change, the big question now is will recent buyers of the RWD Model 3 be able to upgrade to receive the features free of charge. There have been rumours that a software upgrade was going to come that would unlock both for cars built as far back as April 2021.
