I thought it was a given, but it is something that often came up in the comment section on our Tesla Model 3 articles: “Does the Model 3 have electric power seats?”

We now have a confirmation.

And not just any confirmation, Tesla’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, Doug Field, showed off the feature to fans himself.

Several new production units have been spotted recently at Tesla’s Fremont factory and they quickly get swarmed by Tesla owners charging at the factory or going to the service centers.

As Tudor Melville approached Field to look at the seats, the executive says “I’ve never worked at a company with customers like this” – and the guy worked at Apple, which also has its own superfans who need to know everything.

Here he shows off the power seats before quickly driving off with the brand new vehicle:

Field also confirmed that the vehicle was a production unit and the VIN#003 was previously seen on the car.

Tesla is supposed to deliver the first 30 Model 3 production units at an event in Fremont next week.

At the event, Tesla is also expected to reveal the details about the options coming for the vehicle, like battery sizes and performance versions in order for reservation holders to make a more informed decision before turning their reservation into an order.

The online design studio is even expected to be made available based on CEO Elon Musk’s previous comments, though it could only be for early reservation holders in California, where Tesla plans to concentrate the deliveries early in the production ramp.

What other details are you waiting to know about the Model 3? Let us know in the comment section below.
