Here’s How Much Range The Tesla Model 3 Really Has – SlashGear

Currently, the Tesla Model 3 comes in three variants — the rear-wheel drive base model, the dual-motor all-wheel drive Long Range model, and the dual-motor AWD Performance model. According to Tesla, the base Model 3 should reach 272 miles on one charge, while the Performance and Long Range models step the range up to 315 and 358 miles respectively.

As we’ve seen with other Tesla models, and highway testing by InsideEVs, range can vary significantly between these models. Among InsideEVs’ tested vehicles were a 2021 Tesla Model 3 AWD, which claimed 353 miles range and scored 310 miles, as well as a 2019 Model 3 AWD that claimed 322 miles, but delivered only 290 miles. Both of the Tesla Model 3 units tested by InsideEVs delivered 10-12% less range than Tesla’s claimed range.

Car and Driver had a similar experience — its 2019 Tesla Model 3 Long Range came in short of the promised 310 miles, by around 80 miles, over the course of a 40,000-mile test period. Part of this drop in range can be attributed to cold weather throughout parts of the year, since running climate control and battery heating features can both decrease range significantly, not to mention plummeting battery efficiency thanks to the cold. 

Car and Driver also found a 6% degradation in range over the course of the three-year-long test. If you’re shopping for a Tesla Model 3, you can expect to see about 10% less range than Tesla claims on average, and about 60 miles less than that during cold winters.
