Re-Introduced Tesla Model 3 LR AWD Gets Higher Range Estimate: 333 Miles

Tesla has just applied a small change to its online Model 3 configurator, indicating new – higher estimated range values for the recently re-introduced Model 3 Long Range All-Wheel Drive (LR AWD) version.

When re-introduced in early May, the company stated that the default 18-inch wheel version of the Tesla Model 3 LR AWD will get 325+ miles (523 km) of range. The 19-inch version was expected to get 310+ miles (499 km) of range.

Now, the website says that the default version has an EPA estimated range of 333 miles (536 km), so eight miles more than initially outlined. The car with optional 19-inch wheels is expected to have 315 miles of range (according to the manufacturer’s estimate), which is five miles more than previously. That’s on par with the Performance version.

Let’s recall that the previous Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD (retired in 2022) had an EPA Combined range of 358 miles (576 km), so the re-introduced car is still 25 miles (or 7 percent) behind.

This older Model 3 was listed by the EPA among 2023 model year cars, while the new one is not yet listed.

As we said previously, the re-introduced Model 3 LR AWD is a very confusing model in Tesla’s lineup – not only range-wise but also price-wise. As we can see below, when including the federal tax credit, it’s hardly competitive with the Performance version, which offers a similar range and higher performance.
