Unlike a lot of other cars, it is a bit of a challenge to find the odometer on a Tesla Model 3 or Model Y.
The Model S and X actually have a separate screen in front of the steering wheel with an instrument cluster, however, the Model 3 and Y do not.
So, in this quick post, I want to show you two different ways to find your current mileage on the Model 3 or Y electric vehicles.
Odometer on the Tesla App
The fastest way to get the current mileage on the odometer on your Tesla vehicle is via the Tesla App.
Simply open the App and scroll all the way to the bottom.
This includes the current version of the app along with a bunch of general vehicle information such as:
- Current mileage
- Vehicle Identification Number
Odometer & Trip Meter On The Main Screen
Although it may not seem obvious, you can actually access the Tesla odometer for your Model Y or Model 3 via the main touch screen.
If you swipe left on the car icon, you will reach the trip computer and odometer.
Note: Which direction to swipe depends on the software version, so just try both if you can’t find it
The odometer reading is actually last in the last, so scroll down to get to it. One of the Trips will also have the total mileage in it unless you have reset it. The other you will probably want to use for your current trip.
The order of trip computers in the list is:
- Trip 1
- Trip 2
- Distance since car was last started
- Distance since last charge
