Model 3 2021 refresh

Tesla has now officially launched the Model 3 2021 refresh with more range and all the features we were anticipating.

I was lucky enough to get one of the new versions and have it listed for rentals.

We have seen the new center console, new wheels, and a few other features.

On top of the aesthetic changes, Tesla has also made new efficiency improvements, including the new heat pump system, and it has delivered longer range across the lineup:

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motors is getting a 30-mile range increase to 353 miles (568km ).

The other versions of the vehicle also got range increase:

  • Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus: now 263 miles up from 250 miles
  • Tesla Model 3 Performance: now 315 miles up from 299 miles

The new Model 3 is also getting features, like a powered trunk, new double-paned windows, and several aesthetic changes.

As expected, Tesla adopted the chrome delete like it did for the Model Y.

The interior is seeing the bigger change with the new metallic finish steering wheel, which is now apparently heated, and the new center console:

Tesla has completely updated the Model 3 wheel lineup with slightly updated 18″ and 19″ wheel designs, and they brought the new 20’’ Überturbine Wheels to the sedan:

Tesla has also brought back the auto-dimming mirror to the Model 3 with this 2021 refresh.

All versions are also getting quicker 0-60 mph accelerations — most notably the Model 3 Performance has shaved another tenth of a second at now 3.1 seconds to get to 60 mph.
