Tesla’s 2024 Model 3 has hit the market, and it’s making waves with its impressive range and upgraded features. This latest iteration of Tesla’s popular electric vehicle (EV) offers an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated range of up to 341 miles for the Long Range All-Wheel Drive (AWD) model, a significant increase from the previous model’s 333 miles.
The 2024 Model 3 comes in two versions: the Long Range AWD model with dual motors and the more affordable Rear-Wheel Drive version. The latter has a listed range of 272 miles. Both versions maintain the same starting price as their 2023 counterparts, making the increased range an added bonus for potential buyers.
A Fresh Look and Feel
The 2024 Model 3 isn’t just about increased range. It also introduces several design and performance enhancements. The front end’s distinctive bump has been removed, resulting in a sleeker hood and lower profile. The new model also features new acoustic glass for a quieter cabin and improved ride quality with updated suspension tuning.
Performance and Speed
While the 2024 Model 3 boasts an increased range, it does see a slight decrease in top speed. Both versions of the new model have a top speed of 125 mph, compared to the 2023 rear-wheel model’s 140 mph and the Long Range’s 145 mph. Despite this, the 2024 Model 3 remains a high-performance vehicle, offering a smooth and efficient ride.
