Everything you want to know about the Tesla Model 3

The Tesla Model 3 is now a known quantity we have information about the different kit options available at launch, as well as interior and exterior measurements, and car performance and cabin comforts. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the whole point was to make car that is the best car, hands down, for anything close to the same cost, and it makes a strong case for that on paper.

The Model 3 starts at $35,000, as previously announced, but now we know exactly what that will get you. Heres the base level configuration for the new EV:

  • 220 miles of range
  • 130 miles of range recouped via 30 minutes of charging with Supercharger
  • 30 miles of range per hour with home 240V, 32A charger
  • 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds
  • 130 mph top speed

For an additional $9,000, you can upgrade to the long-range battery version, which comes to $44,000 in total before tax or credits. That includes the following boosted specs:

  • 310 miles of range
  • 170 miles of range achieved in just 30 minutes of charging via Supercharger
  • 37 miles of charging per hour at home with 240V, 40A charger
  • 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds
  • 140 mph top speed

Both cars feature the same interior, with a 15-inch touchscreen display that provides access to your virtual instrument panel, media and climate controls.

The car also features a number of convenience features standard, including:

  • Onboard navigation
  • Wi-Fi and LTE connection
  • Keyless entry via the Tesla app (there is no key or FOB for the vehicle)
  • Voice controls
  • Back-up camera
  • Rear seats that fold 60/40 (not full flat) for added cargo
  • Rear-view mirror that auto dims in low light
  • Dual zone climate control
  • Front console with two USB ports

Other options include a Premium Upgrade Package which rolls a number of finish and feature improvements for $5,000, complete with:

  • Heated seating and better cabin materials, including open pore wood dcor
  • Two rear USB ports
  • Power adjustable front seats, steering column and side mirrors (which are very cool)
  • Subwoofer and premium audio system with surround
  • Tinted glass roof
  • Power folding heated side mirrors that dim automatically
  • Docking ports up front for two smartphones
  • LED fog lights

The vehicle also has all the sensors necessary to offer Enhanced Autopilot right now, which is another $5,000 upgrade and includes speed matching, lane keeping, automatic lane switching and self-park. The hardware offers the potential for full-self driving down the road, once it becomes available, too which adds another $3,000 to the cost. Seven cameras, forward radar and twelve ultrasonic sensors are included in total in the vehicle.

  1. Model 3 Blue Driving

  2. Model 3 Profile Midnight Silver

  3. Model 3 Mountain – Pearl

  4. Model 3 Red Overhead

Other paid upgrades include color options beyond the basic black, which include metallic silver, deep blue and midnight silver (a very nice looking slate gray), as well as a pearl white and red. Each of these is a $1,000 upgrade, and then you can also upgrade from the 18-inch standard wheels to a 19-inch sport variety for $1,500.

All-told, a fully upgraded Model 3 retails for $59,500 before tax or incentives, which is still quite a reasonable deal given what youre getting, especially when measured up against comparable gas fuel burning vehicles.

The base Model 3 is going to be shipping later than the version with the upgraded battery pack, which is what will be shipping out to the first customers over the next three months exclusively. If youve been waiting to see what the Model 3 has to offer in terms of actual detailed specs, nows the time to put down a reservation if youre feeling inclined the line extends likely into 2019 at this point, and is only liable to keep growing.
