Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range RWD achieves a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5 seconds (placing it at №230 among 683 electric vehicles) and attains a maximum speed of 140 mph.

Its powertrain provides a power output of up to 239 kW (320 hp) and a torque of 310 lb-ft.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Tesla Model 3 Long Range RWD achieves a How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? of 282–344 miles, placing it at №102 among 683 electric vehicles. However, this range is subject to several influences:

  • Speed: Traveling at higher speeds reduces battery life.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold or hot weather can affect range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous landscapes decrease range.
  • Driving habits: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Feature usage: Climate control and media systems also influence range.

It's important to acknowledge that these are estimations, and your actual driving range may differ. Consider these factors when planning your trip and be ready for potential charging stops.

Utilize the interactive EV Navigation map for trip planning assistance.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range RWD in the USA comes with a Tesla charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 11.5 kW, resulting in approximately 44 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 250 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.
