Tesla Model 3 Specs Have Leaked And They Sound Too Good To Be True


Sports car performance and a great range.

Tesla will reveal the Model 3 tomorrow, but details on the electric car are already spilling onto the Internet. And from the looks of it, the Model 3 seems incredible. According to unnamed insiders, Electrek claims that some models of the Model 3 will be able to get to 60 mph in under four seconds, but the outlet failed to mention whether that figure was for the base model or for the higher-end version. The report also claims that the Model 3 will have an optional 80kWh battery pack for a range of over 300 miles.

While these figures sound great, we’re sure this is only for the most expensive, performance-oriented variant of the Model 3. To meet its target price of $35,000, Tesla will most likely sell a bare-bones version of the Model that won’t have the same performance as a high-end sports car. Electrek’s report also confirms this by stating that the top-of-the-line Model 3 could top out at $60,000. The high-end model will most likely come with all-wheel drive, an 80kWh battery and the automaker’s autonomous driving technology. Meanwhile, Germany’s Wired interviewed Tesla designer Franz von Holzhausen at the brand’s design headquarters in Hawthorne, CA and released an image of the Model 3 under a cover.

The profile of the vehicle looks similar to that of the Model S, but a little smaller. Electrek’s unnamed insider describes the entry level sedan as narrower and shorter than that of the Model S and X. If these figures are anywhere close to being correct, the Model 3 will be even more of a hit than the Model S.
