Tesla Model 3
The innovative Tesla Model 3 is built for safety.
The fully-electric Tesla Model 3 puts an end to petrol station visits with the ability to go anywhere with up to 620km of range on a single charge.
Safety is seen as the most important part of the overall Model 3 design. The metal structure is a combination of aluminium and steel, for maximum strength in every area. In a roof-crush test, Model 3 resisted four times its own mass, even with an all-glass roof: that’s the same weight as two full-grown African elephants.
The inside of the Model 3 is also unlike any other car. You can use your smartphone as a key, and access all driver controls in the central 15-inch touchscreen. The all-glass roof extends from front to back, creating a sense of openness from every seat.
The Tesla Model 3 comes with the option of dual motor all-wheel drive, 20” Performance Wheels and Brakes and lowered suspension for total control, in all weather conditions. And a carbon fiber spoiler improves stability at high speeds, all allowing the Model 3 to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 3.4 seconds.
It may be the smallest Tesla but it packs a big punch when it comes to being an everyday car. In New Zealand, the Model 3 turned heads as the latest electric vehicle on our roads. There’s a rear-wheel-drive option and dual motor all-wheel-drive performance models. Whatever the choice, there is a single screen that operates so many functions of the car – making it uncomplicated driving with zero emissions.

Designed and built as the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, Model 3 is a critical step in Tesla’s mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Like every Tesla vehicle, Model 3 combines range, performance, safety and technology. With 460 to 620 km of range and a starting price of $75,900, Model 3 is Tesla’s most affordable vehicle yet.
