Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel-Drive

The 2024 Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel-Drive is the least expensive option at $38,990, yet it comes jam-packed with incredible features. Right off the bat, you’ll get synthetic leather upholstery with power-adjustable, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The infotainment system features a 15.4-inch touchscreen display, navigation, Bluetooth, HD radio, four USB ports and a 128GB onboard hard drive. Heated rear seats and a rear 8-inch display also come standard.

The Tesla Model 3 provides a luxurious experience for drivers and passengers alike. Wireless device charging allows you to charge up to two phones simultaneously. Instead of a single climate control setting, you’ll get standard dual-zone climate controls. On top of that, the Tesla Model 3 boasts a premium nine-speaker stereo, a panoramic glass roof, and ambient interior lighting.

Also included in the base model are a ton of driver assistance features that you usually have to pay extra for with most vehicles. These advanced features include the essentials like lane changing assist, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. Other driving aids include 360-degree sensors, a surround-view parking camera, park assist, and adaptive cruise control that will steer and accelerate in a single lane.

And speaking of acceleration, you’ll get some pretty powerful acceleration thanks to the Model 3’s base electric motor with a 272-mile range and a top speed of 140 mph. It can reach from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds!


Several optional features are available by subscription. Features like traffic-based navigation, satellite-view maps, internet browser, in-car karaoke, and music/video streaming services come with a 30-day trial.

The available Enhanced Autopilot suite, for $6,000, adds optional features like navigation on autopilot, automatic lane change assist, autopark, and a Summon mode. With the Full Self-Driving Capability for $12,000, you’ll get all the functionality of the Enhanced Autopilot suite, autosteering, and traffic sign recognition on city streets. Despite all these state-of-the-art features, it is important to note that the Model 3 is not fully autonomous, so it can’t drive by itself.

Tesla Model 3 Long Range

The 2023 Tesla Model 3 Long Range, as the name suggests, provides an even greater driving range and a mildly improved top speed. With the Long Range model, you can travel up to 341 miles before recharging. It has a top speed of 145 mph and can travel from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. On top of this, the Long Range is the first trim to provide a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system.

A couple of upgraded features include a 17-speaker premium audio system and premium floor mats. Lastly, there’s a 48-amp onboard charger. The 2024 Tesla Model 3 starts at $45,990.
