Tesla Model 3 Refresh Is Here: 30 More Miles Of Range, New Wheels, More

The Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model 3 has been updated on Tesla's website, with new options and upgrades.

The Model 3, first released in 2017, has received multiple improvements and updates over the years, but this is by far the single biggest update made to the electric sedan. 

The Model 3 Details: The updates to the Model 3 not only increase its all-electric range significantly, but there are aesthetic changes as well.

All trim levels are seeing a range increase, with the dual-motor AWD version now going 353 miles on a single charge, up from the previous 322.

The wheels on all trim levels have been updated, with new looks for 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels. The 20-inch wheels are the same found in the Model Y 20-inch option.

The chrome trim is now black, and the interior has an updated center console. 

Most of the range increase is probably achieved from the switch from a resistive heater to a heat pump, which is found in the Model Y.

Other updates are rumored, such as a heated steering wheel, power trunk and double pane windows, but these have not been confirmed by Tesla. The price of the Model 3 remains unchanged.

Tesla has also brought back auto-dimming mirrors, which were previously removed from the Model 3.

The zero-to-60 times for all Model 3s have also improved, with the performance version now getting to 60 one-tenth of a second quicker than before.

Tesla has also increased the range of the Model Y, bring the highest range version up to 326 miles from 316.
