The Car Guide rating 81%(view ratings)
The Model 3 is Tesla’s entry-level car and now the best-selling electric vehicle on the planet. The Standard Range Plus model with rear-wheel drive offers 423 kilometres of zero-emission driving. If you select the dual-motor Long Range variant with all-wheel drive, expect to travel up to 568 kilometres on a full charge. There’s also a Model 3 Performance with a bit less range (507 kilometres) but ludicrous 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.3 seconds.
