Tesla Performance Model 3

21st May 2018

Elon Musk has confirmed that a performance variant of the Tesla Model 3 is on the way, with a second motor adding plenty of additional power.

In recent tweets from CEO Elon Musk, Tesla have announced that a performance variant of their Model 3 will soon be available. In addition to confirming the new model, Elon Musk also revealed initial information including specifications and remarkable performance figures. The details come alongside a bold promise that the new variant will “beat anything in its class on the track.”

The Performance variant will utilise a dual-motor setup featuring motors at the front and rear of the car, powering the all-wheel drive system. With a top speed of 155mph, and a 0-60mph time of a mere 3.5 seconds - the Model 3 Performance is said to be 15% faster than the closely rivalling BMW M3. These performance figures are even more impressive when considering the model will offer a 310 mile range.

Customers will also be able to choose the all-wheel drive system as a standalone cost option, if they want the improved handling without the increase in power.

As expected, the Performance Model 3 will sit at the top of the range, and as such will receive a generous specification list. This includes 20-inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre spoiler and - for the first time in a Model 3 - the option for a white interior. List prices are expected to start from $78,000 which is around the £58,000 mark.
