Tesla Model 3 Hits 60 MPH in Under 4 Seconds, Will Have Impressive Range

We’re less than a full day away from the reveal of the all-new Tesla Model 3. With that, more specs and details are starting to leak surrounding Tesla’s “affordable” new EV. The latest comes in the realm of performance—and it sounds extremely promising.
According to Electrek, the Tesla Model 3 will have a 0-60 mph time of just 4 seconds. Though, it’s unclear whether this is straight out of the $35,000 box, or if equipped with optional all-wheel drive, which we know will be significantly more expensive.


Speaking of more expensive; an optional 80 kWh battery pack will give the Model 3 over 300 miles of range. That’s a healthy increase over the 265-mile range on the 85 kWh Model S. No word on how much range the base battery will provide.

Orders for the Model 3 will begin on site at tomorrow’s launch, to which 650 potential customers will be in attendance. We’ll know more about Tesla’s highly-anticipated Model 3 when it makes its world debut in California.
