The standard model now has 220 miles of range.
During tonights handover of the first 30 Model 3s, Elon Musk shared additional details on the capabilities of the standard and long range editions of their entry-level car.
The Tesla founder showed off the minimalist production interior, which features a 15″ display that is placed at the center of the dash as drivers in the years ahead won’t have to keep their attention locked on a traditional dashboard during autonomous driving. The company also focused on its safety developments as the founder played footage of a side impact crash where the Model 3 faired much better than the current Volvo S60.
The standard $ 35,000 model will be capable of 220 miles of range and will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The higher-end long range model will cost $ 44,000 and boast 310 miles of range, a 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph. Both models and every Tesla made from now on are capable of fully autonomous driving.
For those who are submitting pre-orders now, Musk says those reservations will be fulfilled later next year.
