Tesla has just launched the facelifted Model 3 in Singapore. Despite being one of the best-selling EVs worldwide, the model hasn’t seen a major update in the six years its been in production. Until now, that is

Here in Singapore, the Model 3 us available in two variants; the Model 3 Rear-wheel Drive, priced from $88,650 without COE, and the Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive, priced from $114,954 without COE.

The new look includes redesigned head and tail lights, and a lower front bumper. The external restyling also marks an improvement in the Model 3’s aerodynamics, adding up to 8 percent (depending on which variant) to its range. Along with the visual update, Tesla has added two new colours – Stealth Grey and Ultra Red. The Model 3’s interior also receives significant upgrades, and now features 360-degree acoustic glass for added sound damping, a larger 15.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a new 8-inch display in the rear for back seat passengers.

The RWD Model 3 clocks 100km/h in 6.1 seconds, and has an official range of 513km. The Long Range Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive variant on the other hand, is capable of reaching 100km/h in just 4.4 seconds. Official range numbers for the AWD car stand at 629km. With a revised suspension and new tyres, the upgraded Model 3 promises a more refined and comfortable ride.

Meanwhile, BMW has this very expensive PHEV

Optional extras available include larger 19-inch ‘Nova’ wheels, which costs an additional $1,500. Full Basic Autopilot and Enhanced Autopilot are also available, and will set you back $11,500. Customers can expect first deliveries of the updated Tesla Model 3 in late 2023.
