According to the most recent report concerning the upcoming Tesla Model 3, which cites a source that has already delivered “reliable information in the past,” we now know more about the entry-level sedan.
The report mentions the Model 3 will deploy a stylish design which employs some elements from the Model S and Model X – though without official confirmation we will have to take all that with a pinch of salt. According to the information coming from the unrevealed source the Model 3 should also be a bit taller than the Model S and sport its own bespoke front end that is inspired from the Model X crossover SUV. As it stands as the entry-level sedan, the Model 3 will also be smaller – shorter and narrower – than both the S and X.
The specifications leaked give the Model 3 and acceleration time to 60 mph (96 km/h) of just under four seconds – impressive if real – though we have no idea if this is the time for the base model or the more expensive high-performance version that uses a bigger battery and also comes standard with an all-wheel drive system. Further speculation puts the Model 3 using an 80 kilowatt hour battery pack that will ensure a range of more than 300 miles.
The base Model 3 will also cost around $35,000 and the prices will then go up for the upscale versions that will reach $50,000 to $60,000. Anyways, speculation will most likely be over once the Model 3 goes official on March 31 at 8:30 pm Pacific Time.
