Tesla Model 3 now available to order: prices, specs and range

Tesla is now accepting orders for the Model 3 in the UK, with prices starting at £38,900.

The long-awaited arrival of the Model 3 follows launches across Europe which have already resulted in the California-based alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) brand moving into Europe’s top 25 biggest selling OEMs during March.

First deliveries for reservation holders will begin in June, and will be prioritised based on reservation date, delivery location and configuration option.

It is available with all-wheel-drive (AWD) or rear-wheel-drive (RWD). 

In AWD, prices for the long range variant starts at £47,900, with the Model 3 Performance priced at £56,900.

The entry level RWD Standard Range Plus starts at £38,900.

Standard specification includes Autopilot, which under active driver supervision, enables the car to steer, accelerate and brake automatically for other vehicles and pedestrians within its lane.

Partial Premium interior is included in Model 3 Standard Range Plus. This includes 12-way power adjustable heated front seats and sat-nav.

The Model 3 Long Range AWD and Model 3 Performance come with the Premium Interior package. This includes satellite-view maps with live traffic visualisation and a premium audio system.

The Model 3 Performance claims to be the quickest car in its class, its electric motors capable of propelling the saloon to 60mph in 3.2 seconds.

Tesla claims that its long range battery will deliver 329 miles of WLTP-tested EV range on a single charge.

All Model 3 customers have pay-per-use access to our global Supercharger network, which is reserved specifically for Tesla owners.

There are more than 440 Supercharger locations with over 3,600 Superchargers in Europe.

In Europe, Model 3 comes with a built-in CCS Charge Port for compatibility with third party fast charging networks, giving our customers the most charging flexibility compared to any EV on the market.

    So what is missing is a Standard plus long range, in the low 40's £ so still within reach of many company car drivers but with enough range to make the switch very comfortable. Only getting the bigger battery with AWD pushing it to nearer 50K is too rich for many budgets.
