Elon Musk announced the pricing and specifications for the Model 3 all-wheel-drive and performance versions. Upgrading to a dual-motor drivetrain costs an extra $5,000.
The AWD Model 3 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. That compares to the rear-wheel-drive version’s 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds. Tesla is listing the same top speed (140 mph) and range (310 miles) as the single motor long-range version.
The Performance variant, capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, will sit at the top of the line with a carbon fiber spoiler, 20-inch wheels and a black and white interior that includes the highly-anticipated white seat trim. Complete with all options except Autopilot, it will be priced at $78,000.
Production of the AWD versions will likely start in July when Tesla achieves a steady production rate of 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week. The configurator will be up for early reservation holders soon.
