With quick acceleration, smooth ride, respectable range, and an appealing design, the 2023 New Tesla Model 3 is an excellent electric vehicle option. With more than a million units sold since 2017, the Tesla Model 3 has not only become the fastest-selling electric vehicle ever, but the ninth-best-selling vehicle worldwide last year. The Tesla Model 3s success has generated massive amounts of revenue and elevated Tesla from boutique electric vehicle maker to mainstream manufacturer, reaching a market capitalization of $1 trillion last year.
New 2023 Tesla Model 3
It is designed to lower the starting price for EVs without making compromises in range and performance. The New 2023 Tesla Model 3 borrows a lot of its design cues from the higher-end Model S, making it instantly recognisable as a Tesla, but is noticeably taller and has less of the sports-car vibe of its lower-slung, smoother-riding sedan siblings.
Teslas may be the youngest in the Tesla lineup, but the Model 3s stylish looks, futuristic-yet-functional cabin, and sports-car-baiting performance make it one of the best electric cars on sale, and a real alternative to the mainstream luxury saloon. While the Tesla 5-seat Model 3 sedan is primarily an electric vehicle focused on delivering range and utility, the 2020 Tesla Model 3 drives in many ways like a sports car, thanks to the placement of all of the dense powertrain mass lower on the chassis and between the wheels.
Teslas 5-seat New 2023 Tesla Model 3 sedan gives its owners plenty of EV range and plenty of tech, all for about $40,000. Opt for Model 3s long-range engine package, or a Performance version, and costs easily jump. The Performance trim outfits the five-seater Tesla Model 3 sedan with 20-inch grey wheels, updated brakes, lower ride height, a Track driving mode, carbon-fiber lip spoiler, and aluminum-alloy pedals.
The 2023 fully loaded Performance New 2023 Tesla Model 3 adds features such as lower suspension, premium 13-speaker audio, carbon-fiber rear spoiler, and 20-inch alloy wheels, making the vehicle feel far more aggressive.
Opt for the range-top Performance Model, and Teslas Model 3 gets lower suspension, a subtle carbon-fiber boot spoiler, and jazzily named 20-inch Uberturbine alloy wheels, making Teslas feel low, mean, and a lot sportier. When you purchase the Performance trim and pick up the more expensive options, the new fully loaded Tesla Model 3 in 2023 costs about $82,000.
New 2023 Tesla Model 3
A fully loaded Performance New 2023 Tesla Model 3 can cost as much as $82,990, plus the charging dock, if you do not have somewhere already to charge your new Tesla. The least expensive Tesla on the market is the rear-wheel drive Model 3, which has a starting price of $46,990. The Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive is powered by a 283-hp electric motor, which produces a claimed 302 pound-feet of torque.
Power outputs range from 283 to 450 horsepower, but a boatload of instantaneous electrical torque makes the 2021 Tesla Model 3 quick off the line. The Performance Model 3 is AWD as well, and has around 480 horsepower, which allows for a 0-100km/h sprint in 3.3 seconds, with a top range of 507km.
The reintroduction of the long-range New 2023 Tesla Model 3 (AWD) is welcome news, either for its notable price differences from the Performance version, or for its range differences from the entry-level RWD version (358 miles versus 272 miles according to EPA). If demand becomes lower, Tesla may once again offer Model 3 Long Range (AWD) along with the entry-level RWD and Performance versions.
One of the most highly-rated all-electric cars on the market, Teslas Model 3 for 2022 represents a strong balance between price, performance, and range. With excellent range, performance, some measure of utility, solid crash-safety ratings, and a bit of fun driving character, the Tesla 5-seat Model 3 sedan could prove to be a worthwhile all-electric car for someone who is seriously considering life without fossil fuels.
The Polestar 2 is a newer entrant into the electric car scene, and it has a higher base price of $48,900 compared to New 2023 Tesla Model 3, with even its longest-range trim costing several thousand dollars more.
Elon Musk mentioned last month that the smaller, cheaper Model 2 will reduce manufacturing costs by half over Teslas new Model 3, and rumored reworkings of its larger siblings could serve as a testing ground on what can be reduced in order to get to the cheaper, sub-$30,000 price point of a Model 2.
Another cost-cutting method could be for Model 3s move to cheaper, but still highly effective M3P phosphate batteries from CALT, with the first units to be shipped on the production line expected early next year. That may mean China gets a New 2023 Tesla Model 3 refresh earlier than U.S. customers do, 2023, because Tesla is looking to ramp up output from the more efficient Tesla factories into the mix of production in an effort to get those desired cost cuts.
Technology is not Teslas only parallel with Apple, and the Model 3 ordering process is closer to ordering an iPhone than it is a car. Even a base-model vehicle gets heated seats, GPS navigation, wireless charging, as well as Teslas notorious Autopilot driver-assistance system. While trunk capacity is not known for any hatchbacks just yet, New Teslas Model 3 comes equipped with split 60/40-split fold-down rear seats, which adds considerably more cargo space than Teslas 2023 Model 3 opponent.
Both are very different cars, and strikingly good at what they do. However, comparisons stem from habit, sometimes unintentionally, so you are going to need to take this with a grain of salt, and sometimes disregard Apple-to-Orange ICE-to-EVI apples-to-oranges comparisons. Driving the Tesla Model 3 for the first time back in March 2018, Tesla was a high-end Tesla Model X for a sister-friends Tesla in Boston.
Nothing else comes close to Tesla at that price (at least as of right now) Now, I am confused between Teslas Model Y and Model 3 (my only consideration is for performance models) and while test driving both.
