The result is a new, massaged look for the Model 3. The front and rear have been redesigned, with the fascia losing its blunt edge and instead being lower, curved, and sleeker. There are more hints of the Model S — itself refreshed in early 2021 — including an updated lighting design. There’ll be two new colors, Stealth Gray and Ultra Red, along with new wheels (in 18-inch and 19-inch sizes) that Tesla says are better for range and reducing road noise.
There’ll be two versions of the refreshed Model 3, at least to begin with. The Rear-Wheel Drive will have a 513-kilometer (318-mile) range, according to the WLTP test cycle (which tends to be more generous than the U.S. EPA test cycle). It’ll do zero to 62 mph in 6.1 seconds, and have a top speed of 125 mph.
The Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive Model 3, meanwhile, will have a 629-kilometer (390-mile) range on the WLTP cycle. It’ll trim the zero to 62 mph time to 4.4 seconds, though it has the same 125 mph top speed. Currently, there’s no Model 3 Performance version listed, though that could change once U.S. specifications are confirmed.
