The specifications shown here are for the 2021 Tesla Model 3 LR with LG battery pack. Tesla also produces this vehicle with a Panasonic battery pack. This pack has some advantages over the LG versions, predominantly with regards to fastcharging performance. As there's a lot of confusion about the current situation, we currently only list details for the LG pack. In practice, owners might receive a version with a Panasonic pack. This might result in better specifications than listed here. To get a sense of the Panasonic pack performance, check the preceeding model (2019/2020) listed at the bottom of this page.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 36 hours 8 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 22h15m 13 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 11h15m 25 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 7h30m 38 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 7h30m 38 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)

All about the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor

Pricing

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £47,500 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £48,490. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor is 324 kW (434 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 364 lb-ft. The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. The top speed is 145 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor has an estimated total capacity of 77 kWh. The usable capacity is 70 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 285 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 205 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 415 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 7 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 11 hours 15 minutes and a charge rate of 26 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 36 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS Supercharger connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 190 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 90 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 195 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor is about 245 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 165 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 340 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 165 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
