Before the first Australian deliveries have even taken place, Tesla has made changes to the local Model 3 line-up by expanding to three grades along with an equipment and pricing realignment.
The range will still open with the Standard Range Plus model priced from $66,000 (read about this variant here), with the new Long Range AWD offering slotting in next priced from $85,000. The range-topping Performance variant is now positioned from $91,200 (all prices exclude on-road costs).
Opting for the new Long Range variant means a 620km driving range with a 4.6 second 0 to 100km/h sprint time and a top speed of 233km/h. This all-wheel drive system is comprised of two independent motors which digitally control torque distribution between the front and rear wheels.
The standard colour is Pearl White multi-coat with Solid Black ($1050), Midnight Silver Metallic ($1400), Deep Blue Metallic ($1400) and Red multi-coat ($2800) also available.
Standard equipment on the Long Range Model 3 includes 18-inch aero wheels, 12-way power-adjustable front seat, heated front and rear seats, a premium 14-speaker audio system, one year premium connectivity which includes maps, in-car internet music streaming and over-the-air updates, LED fog lamps, tinted glass roof with UV and infrared protection, auto-dimming, power-folding and heated side mirrors, custom driver profiles as well as a centre console with 4 USB ports and docking for two smartphones.
At the peak of the range, the Performance variant has been repositioned price-wise and now includes the Performance Pack which brings 20-inch wheels, performance brakes, a carbon-fibre spoiler, lowered suspension, alloy pedals and a track driving mode as standard. The pack was previously a $6200 option which is the amount of the price rise.
It is also now available with a black and white interior for an extra $1400. An all-black interior is standard.
