Tesla has a lot of Model 3 pre-orders to fill, so how's it going to get there? By asking some of the biggest companies in the world for help, that's how. Reuters sources hear that Tesla is having LG Display make the 15-inch landscape touchscreen that dominates the Model 3's cabin. There's no official word on what prompted the switch from the unnamed supplier for the Model S and Model X (neither company has commented so far), but the move virtually guarantees that display tech won't hold back Tesla's dreams of mass-produced electric cars.

The news is big for LG, too. Most of its display business is tied up in mobile, PCs and TVs, where it's hard to stand out. Seemingly everyone has a quad HD phone screen or a 4K TV set, after all. A partnership with Tesla gives LG a better chance at diving into the world of automotive displays, where there's less cutthroat competition and more profit.
