The Model 3 "Performance" will be at the top of the range, with the possibility of reaching 60 miles per hour, from standstill, in just 3,5 seconds: "It will beat any competitor in the same class on the track", this is Elon Musk's promise
It is a version that moves away from the origins of the particular Tesla model, which was thought of in the early days mainly as an electric vehicle for the masses capable of bypassing many of the typical compromises of the new vehicle category. Musk makes the comparison to the BMW M3 (which in the USA has a base price of 66.500 dollars), despite its Model 3 being 15% faster at reaching the fateful 60 miles per hour: the American takes just 3,5 seconds.
Specifically, the performances announced by Musk are: 3,5 seconds for 0-60 (about 96 km/h), a maximum speed of 250 km / h and a 'autonomy of 500 km. Musk promises to get a car that "beats any competitor in the same class on the track". If, on the other hand, you simply want to add the second engine to the Model 3 to have four-wheel drive, the cost is 5 dollars, just like on the Model S.
The result is a more balanced and reliable car, since even if one of the two engines should break down or have a defect, the other could ensure full circulation of the vehicle. In this case the performance is slightly lower, but higher than an original Model 3 that does 0-60 MPH in 5,1 or 5,6 seconds with a top speed of 210 km/h. With the optional dual motor one is achieved 0-60 in 4,5 seconds and a top speed of 225km/h.
Il dual-motor setup at Tesla it consists of an engine designed to obtain high performance, and another engine which is instead designed to extend the vehicle's range. The car then manages the power delivery between the two engines, imperceptibly for the driver and passengers, in order to offer a balanced driving experience based on the demands of the route and the driver's "foot". The deliveries of the new ones Model 3 dual-motor should start in June, while a few months later the black and white interiors should arrive even for the cheaper single-engine versions.
