EPA releases official ratings for Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance versions
In a move which will enable Tesla Motors to commence the deliveries of its Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance versions to customers, the EPA has recently released its official ratings for the two versions.
The release of the EPA’s ratings for Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance versions has come a few days after the Model 3 Performance version was spotted with the Monroney sticker last weekend, revealing an efficiency rating of 116 MPGe for the vehicle.
In its official release of Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance ratings, the EPA has now conformed that the both the Performance and non-Performance Dual Motor versions have got a 116-MPGe rating, with 120 MPGe and 112 MPGe respectively for city driving and highway driving.
The EPA’s recently-released ratings for Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance versions also include electric motor power outputs. Interestingly, the ratings for the rear-motor of the Model 3 Performance version and those of the rear-wheel-drive single motor Model 3 are the same.
Meanwhile, so far as the range is concerned, the Model 3 Dual Motor and Performance versions have both been officially rated at 310 miles on a single charge, similar to the rating for the Long Range rear-wheel-drive version. However, the official efficiency of the dual motor Model 3 vehicles is 29 kWh per 100 miles, as compared to 26 kWh per 100 miles for the single motor version.
