Well-connected online leakers have just spilled the tastiest tidbits of information regarding the Tesla Model 3. According to posts on the Model 3 Owners Club blog (as discovered by InsideEVs), the $35,000 Model 3 will do zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds, with a driving range of “more than 215 miles.”
The full spec panel uploaded to the Model 3 Owners Club blog compares the upcoming Tesla to the Model S in size, capacity, and performance.
The original poster on the owner blog describes this side-by-side comparison chart as internal “talking points,” circulated to Tesla store employees but not published on the automaker’s blogs or distributed directly to potential buyers. A Tesla spokesperson confirmed that this infographic is official and the numbers within are accurate.
So what do we learn from this intel? That the Model 3 will be surprisingly quick for what it is, although the comparison chart does not denote whether that sub-six-second zero-to-60-mph time is for the high-performance all-wheel-drive Model 3 variant that was teased at the vehicle’s unveiling last year. And while that range spec isn’t exact, it’s within striking distance of the Chevrolet Bolt’s 238-mile rating.
Notable as well is the delivery timing mentioned on the comparison sheet. “As we continue to build out our production capacity to meet the higher number of advanced reservations, deliveries for Model 3 orders placed today are not expected until mid-2018,” the document reads. With more than 400,000 preorders submitted and production set to begin in July, we’re not terribly surprised by that particular revelation.
