Tesla Model 3 styling

The Model 3 has been around a few years now, and was due a freshen up. Externally, several tweaks mark the new car out from the outgoing model. The headlights and front end have been thoroughly updated.

They aren’t as bulbous as before, and are slimmer too. The bumper also features less air vents than before. All in all it gives the Model 3 a fresher, more modern look.

Side-on, things are much the same, although a host of new alloy wheel options will be offered. The rear also benefits from a fresh set of lights, and the bumper is smoother and more coherent with the body than before.

Tesla Model 3 interior and tech

Tesla’s minimalist approach remains the theme inside, although the dashboard has been tweaked to include an LED light strip and a revised touchscreen infotainment system.

While the unit is the same size as before (15in), the screen has been improved to provide more vivid graphics. The system is also quicker to respond than before, while the indicator and light controls are now operated via the steering wheel rather than stalks.

The underpinnings remain largely unchanged, with the same 78kWh and 75kWh batteries on offer. However, range has been improved courtesy of the tweaks to the body which has made it more aerodynamic.

Fitted with the smaller battery, the standard rear-wheel drive model manages 346 miles of range, while the Long Range version can ravel up to 423 miles between charges – that’s a significant improvement for both options.

Performance stats are largely unchanged too, with the most potent Model 3 producing around 350hp – it’ll get from 0-62mph in under five seconds. There’ll likely be a quicker Performance variant down the line, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
