Elon Musk took to Twitter last night to reveal some of the specs and pricing details for the Tesla Model 3 dual-motor all-wheel drive and performance versions. Elon Musk did not reveal the horsepower specs, but the dual-motor all-wheel drive performance Model 3 will reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has a driving range up to 310 miles.

If you opt for the standard dual-motor all-wheel drive Tesla Model 3, it will reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph, compared to the performance Model 3 with its 155 mph top speed. The second electric motor adds $5,000 to the price. One special thing to note too with the the dual motor version has the ability to continue driving even if one of the electric motors fails.

Tesla dual motor means there is a motor in front & a motor in rear. One is optimized for power & one for range. Car drives fine even if a motor breaks down. Helps ensure you make it to your destination & don’t get stuck on side of road in potentially unsafe conditions.

With all the options, the Tesla Model 3 dual-motor, all-wheel drive Model 3 will cost $78,000, which is about the same price as a BMW M3. Elon Musk says that the Model 3 is “15% quicker & with better handling. Will beat anything in its class on the track.”

Lastly Elon Musk also revealed details about a new Tesla Ranger service that will make it easier for owners to have their Tesla serviced. It’s not known how much the new Ranger service will cost, but at least it will help ease some of the frustrations that current owners have had with waiting in long lines to have their Teslas serviced.

Will soon enable Tesla owners to request service from their phone with a few taps. Tesla Ranger will come to you to take care of your car. No need to bring the car in yourself & zero paperwork.
