Tesla will display the upgraded Model 3 -- the first major revision since the midsize EV was first revealed in 2016 -- at the 2023 Munich auto show.
The face-lifted Model 3 was revealed this week in Oslo, with a more aerodynamic design, a refined interior and slightly improved range. The drivetrain remains the same.
The Model 3 has been on the market in Europe since 2019, and was an immediate hit with buyers. European-market Model 3s are assembled in Tesla’s Shanghai factory, while the automaker’s new German factory builds the Model Y midsize SUV. To date, more than two million Model 3s have been sold worldwide.
Aerodynamic improvements are the main reason for the longer range, Tesla says, and the coefficient of drag has been lowered to 0.219. The rear-drive, single-motor model now has a WLTP range of 513 km, up from 491 km, while the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version has a range of 629 km, up from 602 km.
