Long-Range RWD Tesla Model 3 Is No More

Believed to be a result of a desire to simplify production and boost profits, the long-range RWD Tesla Model 3 will no longer be available.

If you live in a busy urban area and pay attention to cars, you’ll more than likely have noticed that there are very many Tesla Model 3s roaming about. So big is this compact EV that it’s handily crushing any would-be competitors, be they the BMW 3 and 4 Series combined, Audi A4 and A5 combined and Mercedes-Benz A and C Class as well as CLA combined.

The dominance is scary. The demand is equally frightening. Now, although the Long-Range (LR) RWD, introduced in mid-2017, was the first version of the Model 3 to hit the road, Tesla’s decided to pull the plug on the version. This is possibly a temporary move in order to streamline the Model 3’s assembly line process.

This version was great for those uninterested by a dual-motor set and extra acceleration power. The Long-Range provided 325 miles (523 km) of range along with the ability to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 4.9 seconds vs. 4.4 for the dual-motor. If you were in the market for the Long-Range, prepare to spend more as moving forward, it will only be offered with the dual-motor configuration. This is how Tesla will make a few more dollars…

As demand slows, we assume, in the coming year, the RWD LR might return. By then however, production of the Model Y will probably be close so, it may never make a comeback.
