Tesla Model 3 Update Boosts Power Remotely

Tesla knows what everyone wants and that more power and performance. At the moment, all Model 3 cars are receiving an update – yours might be in today.


This now seems like a game to us. At every turn, every week, almost every day, Musk and Tesla have something to say. This week, all Tesla Model 3 models are getting a performance boost through a software update.

Last week, it was all about the new Tesla Model Y, and believe us, we’ve not heard or read the last of Musk’s compact affordable electric SUV.

For Tesla fanatics and enthusiasts, a free gift of more power and performance will only add to the passion that already encircles the brand. The reason why, and why now, for the boost is that Tesla has gathered loads of data over the last year and now feels comfortable enough to unlock more potential from the Model 3s battery pack and electric motors.

The message that owners will receive will read something like this:

“Your vehicle’s peak power has been increased by approximately 5%, improving acceleration and performance.”

While 5% might not seem like much, it’s still a 20-horsepower boost for a 400-horsepower car. We’ve reached out to a friend to find out if his Performance Model 3 had been given the juice. We look forward to hearing back from him.

The Tesla Model 3 Performance at its core already has plenty of power. Capable of reaching 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, it will beat a lot of exotics through the quarter-mile. The more affordable Standard Range Tesla Model 3 is no slouch either and will get to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds.

And so, Tesla shows once again why so many people love it and why it has such an intense following. No other automaker can increase their vehicle’s power remotely, or maybe they never thought to check if they could.
