Tesla Model 3 – the king of electric vehicles (EVs). Not only the most popular EV in the world but also the eighth best-selling car in the world for 2021. There are three different Tesla Model 3’s and we’re here to break down the details of each one of them, together with prices. We’ll make sure that after reading this, you’ll not only be able to spot the correct model far away, but also know how they differ from each other.
First Things First – The Similarities
All Model 3s come in a variety of colors. The included in price colors are Pearl White and Midnight Silver. For an extra, you can choose between Deep Blue, Solid Black, or Red. A little fact about Tesla is that the whole leather interior, including the steering wheel, is made of synthetic material, which is 100% leather-free and vegan. All Model 3s have an option of an all-black or a black-and-white salon. Enhanced autopilot and full self-driving capability are also an option for all models for a hefty extra cost (Enhanced Autopilot for $6,000, Full Self Driving for $15,000. Full Self Driving is also available in a subscription form. It costs $199 a month for drivers with Basic Autopilot to upgrade to Full Self Driving or $99 for drivers that already have Enhanced Autopilot).
Tesla Model 3 Standard Range (SR)
The Model 3 SR is the cheapest variant out there for the Model 3. It is an RWD (rear-wheel drive) electric car with only one electric motor powering the whole car. It features a 62 – kWh battery with a range of about 500 km, has a top speed of 225 km/h, and goes 0 – 100 km/h in about 5.3 seconds. The Model 3 SR comes equipped with 18” Aero wheels with the possibility to upgrade to 19” Sport Wheels for an extra cost. A Model 3 Standard Range in the Nordics costs about 54000€.
Tesla Model 3 Long Range (LR)
The Model 3 LR looks almost the same as an SR, but the biggest difference is, that it’s Four-Wheel Drive and it has an 82 – kWh battery. This helps people living in the northern atmosphere, where there are multiple seasons. The continuous four-wheel drive digs through the snow like nothing! It has two motors powering the car and goes 0 – 100 km/h in about 4.2 seconds. As the name says, Long Range has also a bigger battery that helps the range reach up to 600 km with the top speed being about 233 km/h. The Model 3 LR comes equipped with 18” Aero wheels with the possibility to upgrade to 19” Sport Wheels for extra cost just like the Standard. A Model 3 LR in the Nordics costs about 65000€.
How to spot the differences afar? Tesla Model 3 LR has “Dual Motor” written on the back while SR has nothing but the Tesla logo on the back.
Tesla Model 3 Performance
The Model 3 Performance is the most luxurious version out of the three. It features a top speed of about 261 km/h, a range of about 550 km, and an acceleration of 3.1 seconds with the same 82 – kWh battery as the Model 3 Long Range. How crazy is that! Just like the Model 3 LR, it features a Four-Wheel Drive with a dual-motor setup! The Model 3 performance comes with some upgrades, that the previous two Models can only dream of! It comes equipped with 20” Überturbine wheels, Performance brakes that are bigger and more efficient, a carbon fiber spoiler, and aluminum alloy pedals. The Model 3 Performance in the Nordics costs about 69000€.
How to spot the differences afar? Tesla Model 3 Performance has also “Dual Motor” written on the back, together with an underlining red line. Performance models also have a carbon fiber spoiler tail.
