The long-range battery will extend the driving range of the Tesla Model 3 to 310 miles. It is expected that the dual motor cars are expected to hit he markets in mid-2018 might be quicker than this one. So keep your fingers crossed and wait a little bit, especially if you are looking for a faster electric car.
Will the Tesla Model 3 Be A Hatchback?
The Tesla 3 is marketed as the smaller and more affordable version of the expensive and very luxurious Tesla Model S. So, it is obvious that people will start speculating if the similarities extend how further and if the Tesla Model 3 will be a hatchback as well.
According to the Tesla Model 3 specs, this mid-size sedan will have a traditional trunk rather than hatchback trunk like Tesla Model S. This is because the brand was trying to bring the best rear-seat headroom and for that, they had to remove the hatchback trunk.
Of course, they made up for it by adding a massive glass rear roof and the front trunk for extra storage that you might be missing because of the missing hatchback trunk style.
What Is theDrive Range of Tesla 3 Sedan?
Although the brand did not say anything about the Tesla 3 horse power, they did tell the world about the driving range of this luxury sedan. According to the information released by Tesla, the Model 3 will bring you a driving range of 220 miles on a full charge.
With the long-range battery in place, the Tesla Model 3 will provide a driving range of 31 miles on a full charge which is pretty impressive. However, unlike Model S, you will have to pay to use the superchargers by Tesla.
Another thing that improves the driving range of the Model 3 is the fact that it has a very low drag co-efficient, which is measured at 0.23. This makes it one of the most aerodynamic production cars on the road right now.

The cabin of the Tesla Model 3 is very simple and minimalist so that the interior can be clean and luxurious. At the front of the driver, he will only find the steering wheel, the paddle shifters and a large 15-inch touch screen that will bring all the information to the driver and fulfill the entertainment purposes as well.
The cabin is very warm and welcoming so that the passengers feel at home when they travel in the new Tesla 3. The interior was clearly designed to be functional and comfortable for the commuters and families. The addition of storage cubbies, supholders, and door pockets make it very versatile and functional.
The interior of the all-new Tesla 3 is comfortable and roomy enough for five passengers and can easily seat adults at the front and the back seats. As for cargo capacity, the Tesla Model 3 brings a cargo capacity of 15 cubic feet of cargo capacity altogether and yes, the rear seats can be folded down to make a nearly flat surface.

If you want to purchase the new Tesla 3, you will have to make a reservation and have to pay $1,000 which is fully refundable if you change your mind.
Tesla is sending off the Model 3 first to their employees and then to the rest of the market. The deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 with astandard battery will begin in October this year, and the deliveries of the all-wheel drive will begin in 2018, there is a long waiting time for this sedan.
