San Francisco: Elon Musk-owned electric car company Tesla has introduced the new AMD Ryzen chip and 12v Li-ion battery in 2022 Model 3 Model Y vehicles.
According to auto-tech website Electrek, a recent leak revealed that new Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, which are made in China and coming to Europa, would come with the new AMD Ryzen chip that is powering the media computer in the new Model S and Model X and the Model Y Performance made in China.
Also, the lead-acid 12v battery will change to a Li-ion battery system, the report said.
Now, as per the report, the electric vehicle company has started production of the Model 3 and Model Y with those changes in the US.
Electrek earlier reported that an independent test of the centre display in a new Model Y Performance in China with the new AMD Ryzen chip for the MCU showed an impressive performance update.
As for the new 12-volt battery, Tesla vehicles have been known to often suffer from 12-volt battery failures. Furthermore, it has been strange for Tesla, a company seen as a leader in battery technology, to still use an old battery chemistry to power its 12v vehicle system, the report said.
