Tesla introduces new Model 3 Performance that delivers even more power

Tesla has introduced its most powerful Model 3 to date with enhanced performance, and stability and an improved design.

The new performance drive unit takes the vehicle from 0 to 100km/h in 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 265km/h and a range of 528km.

The new Tesla Model 3 Performance rides on staggered, forged aluminium 20-inch wheels with new 20-inch performance tyres for sharper response and increased traction out of corners and on various surfaces.

It includes adaptive damping technology which is controlled via the onboard software and integrated it into the Tesla Vehicle Dynamics Controller (VDC) to improve handling performance without sacrificing everyday usability.

The new Tesla Model 3 Performance also has an upgraded chassis to match the drive systems and suspension performance with increased structural stiffness and improved springs and stabiliser bars.

The latest version of track mode can integrate adaptive suspension controls that can immediately respond to driver inputs for maximum control.

The new Tesla model 3 Performance incorporates the latest design with a new front and rear facias for improved aerodynamics.

Also included are new sport seats with side cushions and side bolsters to offer more support during cornering and dynamic driving.

These new sports seats also include the existing heating and ventilation functions.

Inside is a new carbon fibre trim with a unique Tesla-first weave pattern which distinguishes the Model 3 Performance from the rest of the Model 3 line-up.

The new Tesla Model 3 Performance starts at $80,900 plus on road costs.
