(CTN News) – According to a post on Tesla’s X platform, the company launched a restyled version of its Model 3 sedan in North America on Wednesday, with prices remaining unchanged, according towebsite and a post on X.
There have been changes made to Tesla’s website in North America, including the removal of the model 3’s most expensive variant, the “performance” model, as it is no longer listed on the site, and now only the rear-wheel drive and the long-range versions are available.
Currently, the rear-wheel drive version of the Model 3 can be purchased for $38,990, while the long-range version of the car is priced at $45,990.
The range of Tesla’s long-range variant has been increased from 333 miles to 341 miles following an update to the factory specifications.
As per Tesla’s website, both versions of the restyled model come with new features, such as a rear screen for passengers in the backseat, two new colors – “Stealth Grey” and “Ultra Red” – and newly designed wheels.
Tesla has announced a new version of the Model 3 that will be restyled and will have a higher price than the previous model at a event in China back in September.
It was a month later that the upgraded version of the car was made available in Europe.
According to new guidance under the US Inflation Reduction Act, the rear-wheel drive and long-range versions of Tesla’s Model 3 began to become ineligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit at the end of last year.
A record number of Tesla electric cars were produced in the fourth quarter of 2017 exceeding market forecasts and surpassing the company’s 2023 target, but the company lost its position as the leading EV maker by sales to BYD, a Chinese company.
