Tesla “lit” the twin-engine version of the sedan Model 3March 4, 2018
While most of Tesla’s employees at the plant in the California city of Fremont are trying to set up equipment and increase the production of the massive electric model 3 sedan, the other part is already actively working on its new modification.
In January this year, we reported that the all-wheel drive version of Model 3 will enter the market in the spring, and the company has already registered 19 VIN-codes in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It took little more than a month, in the yard of March, and finally “live” twin-engine Tesla Model 3 lit up on public roads, as reported in his Twitter columnist Ryan McCaffrey, photographed VIN-code electric. He also added that the car was “shod” in the R19 wheels.
The characteristics of the twin-engine Model 3 are not yet revealed. The standard Model 3 is equipped with one electric motor with a power of 258 horsepower, so the electric car can accelerate to 96 kilometers per hour in 5.6 seconds, although real measurements show that on warmed asphalt this figure can fall to 4.6 seconds.
At the moment, the company produces two versions of Model 3: with a standard battery of 350 kilometers, and a Long Range version that can travel 500 miles without recharging. As standard, the model is sold in the US market at a price of 35,000 US dollars, but at the moment the company is focusing on the version with a strengthened battery and a premium package, which is estimated at $ 49,000.
By the way, the company continues to slowly but surely increase the volume of production of Model 3. In February, 2,485 copies of Model 3 came off the assembly line of the plant in Fremont, which is 32.5% more than in January.
