Alex on Autos Continues Tesla Model 3 In-Depth Testing – After Basic Version Tested A Few Weeks Now, It's Now Time to Go Inverse – Top of the Range Performance version.
One of the most interesting things that caught our attention is the range and the energy consumption, which proved to be one of the best among electric vehicles (not surprisingly here), but at the same time lower than the figures of EPA.
Alex L. Dykes found that the Standard version's autonomy was about 200 miles instead of 240 km, while the Performance version allowed for 265 miles instead of 310 miles (almost 15%). less). Part of the reason could be tires and wheels in particular.
The estimated energy consumption of the Performance version was of course higher than that of the Standard version as it is a heavier car (larger battery, more powerful transmission):
- Performance 3.5 miles / kWh
- Standard: 3.9-4.0 miles / kWh
Other than that, the Performance version is so much faster (measured 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds) than the standard (bigger change). It can charge faster thanks to its on-board charger of 11.5 kW (the standard charger has about 7.5 kW) and up to 250 kW in direct current in the superchargers (the standard version could reach about 100 kW) .
Performance Model 3 is also better equipped, especially in terms of infotainment and software features.
The handling rate is high A +, while the ride and the noise are just C-, which leaves room for improvement. The braking distance (60-0 mph) is 33.8 m (111 ft), which is fine.
