Elon Musk has given the first technical details of the versions of all-wheel drive (Dual Motor) and sports performance of the Model 3 of Tesla through his Twitter account. In addition, the employer also responded to another user to announce that they could begin to conduct driving tests with the Roadster 2 by the end of 2019.

The last months of Tesla are being very hard, with the company losing large amounts of money because of the production problems of the Model 3, something that has even caused shareholders to question whether Musk should remain at the helm of the company. However, it does not seem that all this storm is preventing the businessman from making announcements and presenting news related to their cars.

The Dual Motor and Performance versions are two highly anticipated variants of the Model 3, which will begin to occur predictably from the month of July. It will be then when, if there are no further delays, the production of the Model 3 has reached the rate of 5,000 weekly units that are so resisting.

This will be the Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance

The Model 3 Dual Motor is the variant of all-wheel drive, will have a range of 310 miles or 499 kilometers under the US EPA cycle, one of the most realistic. Its acceleration will drop from 6 of the normal version to 4.5 seconds to go from 0 to 96.5 kilometers (0 to 60 miles), and its top speed will reach 225 km / h. To buy this version you will have to add $ 5,000 to the price of the Model 3.

The Performance version is the sporty version of the Model 3, and will also configure two engines like the Dual Motor, although these will be more powerful. The car homologates 499 kilometers of autonomy under the EPA cycle, an important achievement considering that the Model S and X reduce the autonomy in their sport versions to offer more power.

The acceleration of the Performance model will be 3.5 seconds from 0 to 60 miles or 0 to 96.5 km / h , and its top speed will grow to 250 km / h. As for the price, this will double to reach 78,000 dollars, although it will include all the extras except the Autopilot.

In its design, the Model 3 Performance will add a carbon fiber spoiler, 20-inch wheels and a black and white finish interior exclusive to this version. Elon Musk has also talked about the cars that will remain as competitors of this model, ensuring that his Model 3 Performance will be 15% faster than the BMW M3, with superior handling, and that in fact will beat any other car in the same spectrum.
