The Tesla Model 3 has received an update, now available in North America, after being released in Europe, the Middle East, and China. The refreshed version, known during development as “Highland,” features a more aerodynamic front end without the previous model’s distinctive bump, new low-profile headlights, and two new color options: stealth gray and ultra red. The updated design aims to increase the vehicle’s range.

Currently, Tesla’s configurator only lists the 2024 Model 3, offering two variants: the Long Range AWD and the Rear-Wheel Drive. The Performance model is no longer available. The Long Range version now boasts an EPA estimated range of 341 miles, a slight increase from the previous 333 miles, while the rear-wheel drive maintains a 272-mile range. Despite these changes, the starting prices remain the same as the previous year’s models. However, the top speeds have been reduced, with both new versions capped at 125 mph, compared to higher speeds in the 2023 models.

Enhancements in the 2024 Model 3 include new acoustic glass for a quieter cabin, an improved suspension for better ride quality, higher-grade interior materials, ventilated seats, customizable ambient lighting, and an upgraded sound system with up to 17 speakers. The center touchscreen has also been updated to be brighter, with smaller bezels and better contrast.
