Tesla Automaker has been doing hard to make an electric car with affordable price for everyday people. The result is the all new 2018 Tesla Model 3. This company has always been producing quality and nicely designed vehicles. So we can expect to be the same for this new Tesla sedan. The idea was to create an electric car which would be available for the masses. We can say that it would be a good alternative to Model S and Model X.
This new sedan will represent the combination of great range mile, roomy cabin with lots of safety systems and an excellent performance. The main rivals of the new Model 3 will be Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf.
2018 Tesla Model 3 powertrain and performance
When it comes to the engine, 2018 Tesla Model 3 will come with a range of 215 miles which is pretty amazing. It will be offered with a standard rear-wheel drive system. With this version, the new Tesla 3 will be able to hit 60 miles per hour in less than six seconds. As well, it will be capable to deliver up almost 300 horses which is great.
Moreover, according to the latest news, Company is preparing a dual-motor version paired with all-wheel drive system.. The range of the batteries will contain two options: 70- and 90-kWh units. They will be both available with rear- and all-wheel drive and with dual-motor configurations. For example, a 60kWh unit with RWD will be able to make 335 horses and to reach 60 mph in only 5 seconds. The top speed of this one will be 130 mph. More powerful will be a 70kWh dual-drive unit with AWD system. This unit will be able to produce 370 horsepower. Its top speed will be around 150 mph and will reach 60 mph in 4 seconds.
Design of exterior and interior
Speaking of the exterior, 2018 Tesla Model 3 will borrow almost identical design language from Tesla Model S. The new Tesla 3 will feature sleek lines and simple and sporty appearance. The roof will be curved and will be higher than on Model S. This will probably provide more head and shoulder room inside. What it is interesting about its design, is the lack of the classic grille in the front. The headlamps are new and look very attractive. Naturally, they will get quality LED lighting. On the back, we will notice new C-shaped taillights, new bumper and a wider spoiler.
Inside, 2018 Tesla Model 3 will continue with its simple and clean design. The dashboard will be stylish and trimmed with some nice aluminum, leather and wood details. It will feature a large touchscreen display on the center of it. The cabin is able to accommodate five passengers. It provides enough comfort for all the occupants. As for the safety, it is said what it is going to be in the top of the class.
Release date and price
It is said that 2018 Tesla Model 3 should go on sale in the end of 2017. As for the price, the base model should cost around $35,000. Of course, depending on a drivetrain, powertrain and equipment, the price could go up to $50,000.
