Since its introduction in July 2017, the Tesla Model 3 has steadily gained popularity, with global sales exceeding one million units in 2021. Known for its simplistic design and practicality, the Model 3 has captured the hearts of electric vehicle enthusiasts. Now, after six years in production, Tesla has given the Model 3 a refresh, bringing it up to date for 2024.
The exterior changes may appear subtle at first glance, but a closer look reveals sleeker and more modern elements, particularly in the front end. Tesla has introduced two new wheel designs, catering to those seeking both comfort and style.
Inside the cabin, the 2024 Model 3 introduces ventilated seats and ambient lighting, enhancing comfort and creating a more inviting atmosphere. Rear passengers benefit from an 8″ display screen for climate control and entertainment options, making long journeys more enjoyable.
Tesla has also redesigned the steering wheel and improved insulation and material quality to reduce wind and road noise, addressing previous criticisms.
While performance details remain consistent across the range, the entry-level Model 3 impressively reaches 60 MPH in just over 6 seconds. The price is expected to remain competitive, with the base model starting at around $42,000.
For those needing more range and all-wheel drive capabilities, a long-range variant is available for approximately $7,000 more. As for the high-performance Model 3, no official announcement has been made yet, but it may be priced around $55,000, similar to the current 455 horsepower model.
While an exact release date has not been confirmed, the 2024 Tesla Model 3 is expected to debut toward the end of the year, promising an updated and refined driving experience for electric car enthusiasts.
