Tesla showed off the updated Model 3 electric car, now the brand’s cheapest model.

The differences between the 2021 model year and its predecessor are part of the stylistic innovations, improved dynamics and increased autonomy.

The novelty has acquired other wheels of 17 and 18 inches, and in the cabin it is worth noting the appearance of an improved center console with a chrome insert. Along with this, the electric car received improved noise insulation, an electric drive for the luggage compartment lid, as well as a heat pump, which replaced the electric stove, and much more.

All variations, in particular, have acquired an optimized system that distributes electricity, due to which it turned out to increase the power reserve. Thus, the “senior” version of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range, which has two electric motors, is now capable of covering a distance of 568 km on a single charge, which is 48 km more than before.

Model 3 has also become more dynamic following the restyling. For example, the most powerful Performance modification, which has 340 kW (462 hp) units, can accelerate to 96 km / h in 3.1 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than its predecessor.

In addition, it was recently noted that the American manufacturer Tesla is going to produce 500,000 cars this year. It should be emphasized that before the coronavirus pandemic, the American company planned to overcome the half-million figure.
