Top Tesla Model 3 to have 300-mile range, 0-60 in under 4 seconds?

March 30, 2016

Tesla’s Model 3 sedan may be capable of driving for more than 300 miles and accelerating nearly as quickly as a Model S P90D.

The company has kept official information tightly under wraps, however an unnamed source has told Electrek a few alleged specs. The base model promises to deliver at least 250 miles of range, suggesting the leaked information, if true, points to a range-topping package.

The mass-market sedan is said to be capable of launching to 60 mph in less than four seconds, not far behind the P90D’s claimed 3.1-second sprint. The benchmark is presumably tied to a dual-motor variant that sends available power to all four wheels.

The source describes the Model 3 exterior design as a blend between the Model S and Model X, but shorter and narrower than either existing model. Previous reports suggest it will be roughly the same size as a BMW 3-Series.

The entry-level Model 3 promises to carry a $35,000 price tag, before government incentives. Top trim levels are expected to fetch up to $60,000, bridging the gap beneath the basic Model S.

Full details will be disclosed at Tesla’s official unveiling event on Thursday.
