Tesla has increased pricing across the Model 3 range as the weak Australian dollar starts to bite.
The entry-level Model 3 Standard Range Plus wears the biggest increase jumping $6000 to now start at $67,900 plus on-road costs.
Moving up the range, the Model 3 Long Range now starts at $91,613 plus on-road costs, while the range-topping Model 3 Performance asks $102,013 plus on-roads.
It’s worth remembering, Tesla operates as a tech company, and as such, the marque doesn’t hedge currency as far in advance as car makers traditionally do.
The Standard Range Plus uses a 54kWh battery pack and a single-motor to drive the rear wheels. The system produces 211kW of power and offers a driving range of up to 409km (WLTP cycle). Tesla claims it can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds.
Moving to the Model 3 Long Range adds all-wheel drive thanks to front and rear electric motors that are fed by a 79.5kWh battery pack for a combined output of 258kW. The driving range increases to 560km while the 0-100km/h dash takes 4.6 seconds.
The flagship Model 3 Performance model uses the same dual-motor AWD configuration and 79.5kWh battery pack. Power increases to 335kW which delivers a 3.4 second 0-100km/h time. After a full charge, the Performance model can cover up to 530km.
