2021 Tesla Model 3 Overview

The Tesla Model 3 is an all-electric premium sedan and the entry point to the brand’s portfolio. For 2021, it gets some important updates.

The Model 3 comes in Standard Range Plus, Long Range, and Performance Trims—all three of which were improved substantially with recent updates. The Standard Range Plus is the base option, bundling a single electric motor and rear-wheel drive (RWD). It achieves 263 miles of range, a top speed of 140 mph, and a 5.3-second zero to 60 mph time. The Long Range adds a second electric motor for all-wheel-drive (AWD) functionality. Paired with a larger battery, it manages 353 miles of range, a 145 mph top speed, and 4.2 seconds zero to 60 mph run. Finally, the Performance comes with dual motors and AWD. Its 315 miles of range are a bit lower, but it hits a top speed of 162 mph and manages the run to 60 mph in an exotic 3.1 seconds.

The base Standard Range Plus gets 18-inch wheels, wireless phone charging, a glass roof, power-folding mirrors, Bluetooth audio, leatherette upholstery, front heated seats, and immersive audio. Long Range and Performance trims get rear heated seats, an uprated sound system with 14 speakers, LED fog lamps, and interior floor mats.

Tesla’s superb Autopilot system is standard on every Model 3, bundling automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control with automated lane centering. For a price, you can select the Full Self-Driving Capability, which gives your Tesla the ability to navigate on- and off-ramps, change lanes, parallel and perpendicular park, interpret and act upon traffic lights and stop signs, and Tesla's "Summon" feature. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Model 3 its highest “Top Safety Pick+” designation in 2020.

The Tesla Model 3 sees continuous improvements that make it the premium electric car of choice.
