2021 Tesla Model 3 Is Updated And Gains More Range

Tesla continues to be ahead of the competition with updates that buyers want in the new 2021 Model 3


  • Pricing is unchanged despite the upgrades.

  • Some updates include a power trunk lid and chrome trim delete.

  • Interior trim accents changed as well.


Serious competition to Tesla’s position as the leader in all things EV is trickling in but Musk and his electric car company are leagues ahead and will likely remain there for a while yet. For the 2021 model year, the Model 3 is spruced up in all the right ways.

The most noteworthy update is that the Long Range Dual Motor version is getting a 30-mile (50-km) range increase to 353 miles (568 km ). This serves another serious blow to the recently reviewed Polestar 2 and its 233 miles (375 km) of range. Both the Standard Range Plus (263 miles from 250) and Performance (315 miles from 299) also get boosts.

The explanation for these increases is, according to electrek.co, a new “efficiency package.” Other improvements include a new heat pump system. As though these performance upgrades weren’t enough, the Model 3 is also faster than the previous car.

Tesla has also introduced a new collection of wheels for the Model 3 as well as changes to existing ones. The standard 18s are redesigned, the 19-inch one is all new and the Performance trims can be fitted with 20-inch Uberturbine wheels.

Other aesthetic updates include a chrome-delete option for the exterior, and a power trunk lid is included for every trim. The cabin features a new centre console and interior accents are different.

The best bit of news is that Tesla has not increased Model 3 pricing despite the changes.
