Tesla Model 3

Tesla Model 3


The 2022 Tesla Model 3 is an electric vehicle that lives up to the hype, with a near-ideal blend of performance, driving range, and affordable pricing. It’s fast and agile, especially in the Performance trim, which means the Model 3 is an EV that driving enthusiasts like us can get behind. It was even named to our Editors’ Choice list for 2022. The mid-level Long Range trim has a driving range of 358 miles per charge, so charging the Model 3 every day is not necessary. The Model 3’s low starting price does not unlock its full potential, and its fit and finish falls short of alternatives like the Chevy Bolt and Ford Mustang Mach E. There is, however, no more affordable way to park one of Tesla’s ground-breaking EVs in your driveway.

This is where things start to pick up speed. Whereas newer Tesla such as the Model 3 and Model Y combine performance and value, the Model S dominates nearly every category at a much higher price.

For example, the Dual Motor Model S (the EV’s most affordable trim) starts at $104,490 and can currently go up to $120,990 with options like 21′′ Arachnid wheels and cream interior.

Keep something handy because it’s “Plaid” time. You’ve probably heard how impressive the Plaid Model S is, but the only thing bigger than its list of top specs is its price.

The Tri-Motor Model S Plaid starts at $140,490 and comes with no upgrades, not even an exterior color. You’re looking at a total purchase price of $156,990.

The Long Range Model 3 starts at $57,490 and can be fully loaded for $72,490. Finally, the Model 3 Performance starts at $62,990 and can go up to $77,990 with 20′′ Überturbine wheels and all other options.


Built for Safety

Safety is the most important part of every Tesla. We design our vehicles to exceed safety standards.

5-Star Rating

Model 3 achieved NHTSA 5-star safety ratings in every category and subcategory.

Top Safety Pick+

Model 3 received the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, with top ratings in all crashworthiness and front crash prevention categories.

Safety-First Design

Model 3 is built from the ground up as an electric vehicle—with ultra-high-strength steel and a low, solid center of gravity.

Rigid Structure

A material mix of aluminum and steel contributes to the best structural rigidity and occupant safety.

Impact Protection

The rigid battery pack’s strength and support, when combined with impact-absorbing rails and centre pillar reinforcements, protects every side.

Very Low Rollover Risk

The floor-mounted battery pack’s position and weight provide a very low center of gravity, allowing for a very low rollover risk.

All-Wheel Drive

Dual Motor

For improved redundancy, Tesla All-Wheel Drive has two independent motors, each with only one moving part for minimal maintenance and maximum durability. They digitally control torque to the front and rear wheels, unlike traditional all-wheel drive systems, for far better handling and traction control.

Go Anywhere

Because the Model 3 is entirely electric, you will never need to visit a gas station again. If you charge at home overnight, you can wake up to a fully charged battery every morning. When you’re on the road, you can easily plug in at any public station or through the Tesla charging network. We now have over 30,000 Superchargers around the world, with six new locations opening every week.


Charge for about 30 minutes while you get a cup of coffee or a snack. And, with over 30,000 Superchargers strategically placed along well-traveled routes around the world, Model 3 can take you anywhere.

Future of Driving

The advanced safety and convenience features of Autopilot are intended to help you with the most difficult aspects of driving.


Autopilot allows your vehicle to automatically steer, accelerate, and brake within its lane. Full Self-Driving capability adds new features and improves existing functionality to make your car more capable over time, such as:

Navigate on Autopilot

Active guidance from highway on-ramp to off-ramp.


Automatically retrieve your car.


Parallel and perpendicular parking, with touch a single touch.

Auto Lane Changes

Automatically change lanes while driving on the highway.

Built Around the Driver

The Model 3’s interior is unlike any other car. You can use your smartphone as a key, and all driver controls are accessible via the central 15-inch touchscreen. The all-glass roof extends from front to back, giving every seat a sense of openness.

The interior is minimalist, with all controls accessible via the central 15-inch touchscreen and the steering wheel.

The forward-designed instrument panel allows for even more legroom in the front, resulting in a more spacious passenger cabin.

The premium center console is contemporary and functional, with ample covered storage and charging for two smartphones.

The back seat is extremely comfortable, with plenty of legroom and stunning views through the all-glass roof.

Better Over Time

Everything is accessible via the 15-inch touchscreen, which is designed to improve over time with regular software updates that introduce new features, functionality, and performance.


FM/HD, on-demand or internet radio, and streaming via premium Connectivity.


Smart routing that automatically adjusts to real-time traffic conditions.


Personalized drive settings and cabin controls.


Control air flow from the dashboard, in one or two directions.

Glass Roof

The Model 3’s expansive Glass Roof provides passengers with a brighter, more spacious experience—as well as a seamless view of the sky.

Premium Interior

With our full Glass Roof, a custom audio system, and premium seating throughout, you’ll have a better driving experience.

All-Weather Comfort

Front and rear seat heaters, as well as heated side mirrors, add comfort and convenience.

Pristine Sound

For interior sound dynamics comparable to a recording studio, our premium audio system includes 14 speakers, including a subwoofer and dual amplifiers.


Basic Autopilot

Autopilot, which comes standard with every Tesla, allows your vehicle to automatically steer, accelerate, and brake for other vehicles and pedestrians in its lane. Advanced safety and convenience features, as well as driver assistance features like emergency braking, collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring, are designed to help you with the most difficult aspects of driving.

Easy Charging

Charge anywhere there is power. The Mobile Connector Bundle and a 110V household outlet can be used to top off the most used range for daily driving, or upgrade to a 220V Tesla Wall Connector for the best home charging experience. Model 3 can add up to 175 miles of range in just 15 minutes using Tesla’s Supercharger network, allowing you to get back on the road faster.

Over-the-Air Updates

With frequent wireless software updates, Model 3 improves over time, bringing you new features, more entertainment, higher performance and range, increased comfort, and even better safety.

Sentry Mode

When left unattended, your Tesla is protected by continuous 360° monitoring. Enabling Sentry Mode activates a “Standby” state, similar to that of many home alarm systems, and uses the car’s external cameras to detect and protect against potential threats.

The all-new Live Camera, which is available with Premium Connectivity, allows you to remotely view your car’s surroundings while parked, as well as honk, flash, and speak through the car’s speaker. Tesla cannot access Live Camera because it is end-to-end encrypted.

Expansive Storage

The Model 3 has 23 cubic feet of cargo space, which is accessible via both the front trunk and the rear trunk, which opens and closes automatically. Taking advantage of space previously occupied by bulky engines, gas tanks, and transmissions, the Model 3’s design allows for disproportionately large amounts of storage for a car its size while improving occupant safety through a more spacious, reinforced body and chassis.

Tesla Mobile App

Remotely controls and monitors your Tesla using Phone Key keyless driving, range and charging status, climate control, live GPS location, and other features. You can even schedule service and monitor your entire Tesla ecosystem, including Powerwall and Solar Roof power flow.
