The Tesla Model 3 is one of the most well-rounded electric vehicles on the market. Generous range, superb performance, and all the latest tech features make this sedan a compelling proposition even without federal tax credits. So, how much will it cost you to get the most popular Tesla sedan into your garage? We’ve got the full rundown for you on which version is right for you.
There are three versions to choose from: Standard, Long Range, and Performance. The base Model 3 Standard Range starts at $37,990 and comes with 18-inch allow wheels, a 15-inch touch screen, heated front seats, a “partial premium” black interior, and the Autopilot suite of semi-autonomous driving technologies. On a single charge, the Model 3 Standard Range can travel up to an EPA-estimated 263 miles, similar to the old Mid-Range model. Standard Range Model 3s are the only RWD, single-motor models remaining.
If you need the most range on a single charge, the Long Range models are good for 353 miles after a recent update and is now exclusively a dual-motor variant. This version will run you $46,990 and add a “premium” black interior, heated rear seats, a 14-speaker audio system, power-folding side mirrors, and LED fog lights.
For performance junkies, the Model 3 Performance is right up your alley. With an EPA-estimated range of 315 miles on a single charge, this electric sedan can still travel far despite being able to do 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. You get several extra upgrades, too, including 20-inch alloy wheels shod in Pirelli P Zero performance rubber, performance brakes, a carbon fiber spoiler, a lowered suspension, increased top speed to 162 mph (up from 145 mph), aluminum pedals, and Track mode. This go-fast version will cost you a pretty penny, though because the Model 3 Performance starts at $54,990.

Start adding options and the Model 3’s price will start increasing rapidly. The available blue and red exterior color cost $1,000 and $2,000 respectively while the optional 19-inch alloy wheels add $1,500 to the sticker price. If the two-tone white and black interior interests you, get ready to shell out another $1,000. The so-called “full self-driving capability,” which includes navigate on Autopilot, automatic lane changes, automatic parking, summon, and traffic light detection will set you back an eye-watering $10,000. With everything said and done, a Model 3 Standard Range will run you $52,490 while the Long Range version checks in at $61,490. At the top of the food chain is the Model 3 Performance, costing $67,990.
The combination of range and performance in the Tesla Model 3 makes this sedan a compelling argument. There’s something for everyone here from the daily commuter to the driving enthusiast. Sure, the car gets expensive but it doesn’t get insanely out of hand like in gas-powered European competitors such as the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Regardless of which variant you choose, the Tesla Model 3 is a solid all-around sedan that does everything you expect and then some.
