Tesla has now officially released a refresh of the Model 3 2021 with more range and all the features we expected.
Last week, we reported on Tesla, which is currently updating the Model 3 with a significant refresh that includes several new features.
We saw the new center console, the new wheels and reported on a few other features, but it’s now official.
Tesla has already officially updated its online configurator with the new refresh of the Model 3 2021 and, as expected, there are still a lot of updates under the hood.
In addition to the previously announced aesthetic changes, Tesla has also made new efficiency improvements, including a new heat pump system, said a source familiar with the Electrek issue, and provided more range in the range:
The long-range twin engines of the Tesla Model 3 increase the range from 30 miles to 568 km.
Other versions of the vehicle have also increased the range:
- Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus: now 263 miles up from 250 miles
- Tesla Model 3 performance: now 315 miles up from 299 miles
A source familiar with the matter told Electrek that Tesla had equipped the new Model 3 vehicles with a new “efficiency package” that improved Tesla’s already industry-leading efficiency and led to a longer range.
We’ll learn more about the improved performance once the EPA test results come out.
The new Model 3 also gets all the features we confirmed in previous reports, such as a powered trunk, new double-glazed windows and several aesthetic changes.
As expected, Tesla accepted the deletion of chrome, as in the Y model.
The interior notices a major change with the new metal finished steering wheel, which is now apparently heated, and the new center console:
Tesla has completely updated the Model 3 wheel range with slightly updated 18-inch and 19-inch wheel designs, and they have brought the new 20-inch Überturbine Wheels to the sedan:
Tesla also returned the Model 3 auto-dimming mirror with this refresh in 2021.
All versions also get faster accelerations from 0-60 mph – mostly the Model 3 Performance has shaved another tenth of a second at the current 3.1 seconds to reach 60 mph.
There are also some minor changes, such as graphite trim near the seat control, which will require the car to be better inspected, and we expect there to be plenty of other changes “under the hood” to learn about as you deliver the car. in the coming weeks.
Stay on the line. New versions of the Model 3 are coming off the Fremont production line in the last few weeks, but the first vehicles were destined for international markets and now Tesla has started producing it for the North American market.
