How Much Does a 2021 Tesla Model 3 Cost?

Kicking off the 2021 Model 3 line-up is the $38,490 Standard Plus version, which comes with 18-in. aero wheels or 19-in. sport wheels for an extra $1500. There is a single electric motor powering the rear wheels. The interior color choices are black or, for an extra $1000, white. Standard across all models are a full-length glass roof, power-opening trunk, and autopilot. Front seats are heated and 12-way power adjustable and door mirrors are heated, power-folding, and auto-dimming. For $47,490, the Long Range Model 3 adds a front drive motor for all-wheel-drive (AWD), interior upgrades, and a larger battery for extended range capability. For enthusiasts, the $56,990 Performance AWD model really turns up the wick with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds, fast enough to give a serious sports car a run for their money. As well as the acceleration boost, this version comes with 20-in. wheels, lowered suspension and a top speed increased to 162 mph from 145 mph. Tesla’s impressive Model 3 warranty provides a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty, plus an 8-year/unlimited-mileage coverage on the battery and motors.
