Tesla Model 3 « 100D » Could Be A Reality

Tesla may have dropped hints that the 100 kWh could see its way into a Model 3.

  • The Model 3’s largest battery pack is currently a 75 kWh unit.
  • A 100 kWh pack would massively increase and performance.
  • These details originate from a well-known Tesla hacker.

The ultimate Tesla Model S and Model X is a 100D, more precisely a P100D. What’s important is that the Model 3 was never intended (or was it) to get a larger pack than the current 75 kWh unit. The Tesla hacker known as Green did his thing and found a number of interesting bits that may say otherwise.

In a story published by electrek, the hacker found a number of hints that could lead to the larger battery as well as the famed “Ludicrous” drive mode. At one point, Musk promised that the most balls-out drive mode was going to see use in the Model 3 but that has yet to happen. There are other series of code that indicate that new wheels are on the way as well as new tire pressure monitoring sensors.

Although Green did find this “information” in a Tesla’s software, this remains complete speculation. The current 75 kWh Long Range Model 3 delivers 518 km (499 for the Performance)  and pricing starts at CDN $65,990. With a 100 kWh battery, a “Super Long Range” Model 3 would likely allow for 650 km of range but the price tag would probably rise to over $75,000. Any takers?

Time will tell.
