The Tesla model 3, the most important car that has been manufactured in decades, has a confirmed range of 310 miles, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. That figure applies to the long-range version of Model 3, and echoes the vehicle specifications released by Tesla in July. It also makes the Model 3 one of the most efficient pbadenger electric vehicles on the market.
The EPA range is used as the announced figure for electric vehicles sold in the US. UU The 310-mile range is an estimate of the number of miles the vehicle should be able to travel in a combination of city and highway with a full load. That's 131 miles per gallon equivalent of gasoline (MPGe) to drive in the city, 120 MPGe on the highway, and 126 MPGe combined.
You will have to pay more to get that extended range, however. Tesla said he would sell a standard version of Model 3, with only 220 miles of range, for $ 35,000. The long-range version will start at $ 44,000, says the automaker. Production in the standard version is not expected to start until 2018.
Of course, that means you can get any version of Model 3 in the near future. In the last quarter, Tesla produced only 260 models 3; That's about three cars per day and well behind a normal pace of about one car per minute. Earlier this month, Tesla delayed its volume production target for Model 3, widely regarded as crucial to the company's long-term future, in about three months to address production bottlenecks.
Meanwhile, GM's Chevy Bolt, the first battery – the electric car that goes on sale with more than 200 miles of reach at a price of less than $ 40,000, has been increasing its sales every quarter. Last September, Chevy delivered the incredible 2,632 Bolt EV in what is the ninth full month of the car for sale.
