American automotive innovators have been at the forefront of creating disruptive trends in the industry. Ford revolutionized production with the introduction of the standardization and assembly line manufacturing with the Model T in the 1900s. Enter the 2000s, and a small company called Tesla Motors introduced an all-electric sports car called the Roadster. Little did anyone know that Tesla would become the American EV powerhouse that it is today, with a strong four-model lineup, prolific CEO in the shape of Elon Musk, and the world’s highest seller of EVs. After the stellar success of the Model S and Model X, the Model 3 compact executive sedan EV debuted in 2017 and became an instant hit. If you’re seeking one, we’ve got a 2022 Tesla Model 3 Performance in inventory with just 85 miles on the wheels – that’s basically delivery mileage, making this as fresh out-of-the-box as you can find. Being the Performance trim, it’s also quite a potent little road missile.
Although we called it little a few words ago, this 2022 Tesla Model 3 Performance is still a 184-inch long car that showcases its distinctive design in a Deep Blue Metallic paintjob. The black 20-inch Uberturbine wheels are another eye-catching detail, with red brake calipers peeking from behind, and wrapped in Pirelli PZero performance tires. You won’t find any ‘Model 3’ or ‘Performance’ badging on the exterior, there’s only the Tesla crest at the front and rear, and the DUAL MOTOR badging on the rear. A carbon fiber spoiler completes the outlook. Step aboard and this Model 3 sports the premium black and white interior, with black trim and white leather seats. It’s also got the Performance Upgrade that brings what Tesla call performance pedals, as well as the heat package with heated rear seats too. Although you can’t tell by looking at the spartan appearance, the Model 3 has ample tech toys, including climate control, a comprehensive infotainment suite.Base Autopilot package is optional. It’s all concealed by, and controlled with the large central touchscreen while the instrument cluster is a smaller screen ahead of the driver.
What engine is there to speak of? You won’t find a gas guzzler or oil burner, instead this 2022 Tesla Model 3 Performance is motivated by a dual motor set-up that sees twin electric motors power the front and rear axles for all-wheel-drive functionality. System outputs are 450hp and 471lb-ft, which is enough for zero to sixty in a muscle car beating 3.3 seconds, and the top speed is a healthy 162mph, which is more than the electronic limiting on most luxury German sedans. EPA range is quoted at a decent 315 miles on the combined cycle, while NEDC figures are rather more optimistic, at 390 miles.
