Performance and Range Boost

Tesla has not only focused on aesthetics but has also elevated the Model 3's performance.

This results in superior stability and traction control, enhancing both power distribution and cornering capabilities.

The RWD Standard Range version now provides a remarkable 554 km of range, while the Long Range model achieves an astonishing 678 km on the WLTP cycle.

  • Meanwhile, the New Zealand government offers a Clean Car Discount of NZD $7,015 for new electric vehicles with a drive-away price under NZD $80,000. It's important to note that this rebate operates on a first-come, first-serve basis, so early adopters can reap the benefits.
