Tesla will soon produce the Tesla Model 3 Highland. Will it have a Performance version? Rumors seem to indicate yes.
Tesla has long been the leading manufacturer of electric cars in the world. The company based in the State of Texas, United States, has been working on a catalog consisting of 4 vehicles (there will be 5 when the Cybertruck production chain becomes official). The new generation of Model 3 is now a reality. Calling itself Highland, has already been presented in society. It’s about a restyle very interesting that affects the exterior and interior, adding greater technological equipment to the sedan.
Now, will there be a Performance variant? This is the doubt we have after seeing how Tesla has not made the presence of this sports variant official. It is true that it is too early to suggest what variants will be available, but the truth is that the company is already working on this future version. The Performance name implies dizzying accelerations and spectacular performance. In the particular case of the second generation of the access sedan, it is already possible to make a series of hypotheses about what is to come.
The Performance variant of the Tesla Model 3 Highland is already being planned
Tesla has always attracted attention for the features of its line of electric cars. Since the first generation of the Model S we have been able to witness one of the main advantages of electrical technology in the automotive industry. The acceleration of these cars is unrivaled, something that has been seen countless times. In the case of Model 3, The second generation seems to have its own sporting distinction.. In a brand forum Data has already been leaked about what would be the sports version of the entry model to the range.
Taking into account the specifications that have been provided on the network, Tesla you would have already registered the corresponding VIN code. The acronym T would appear on it, which leaves a series of unknowns. Will it have, like the Plaid versions of the Model S and Model X, a total of three engines? Most likely not. In fact, it is speculated that there will likely end up being a front drive taken from the Model S Plaid, but not a third power unit. It would, therefore, be a variant with a total of two engines.
What does raise more doubts is the combined power that this vehicle would develop. Taking into account that the Model 3 Performance currently generates a total of 513 HP on average, it would not be strange to see a power close to 600 HP in this second generation. After all, there would be a lot of margin between the Performance and the Plaid version of the top range, which is around 1,000 HP. Rumors suggest that there is room to stretch the push to these figures.
In relation to acceleration, the current version reaches 100 km/h from a standstill in about 3.3 seconds. The Highland model is rumored to I would be able to reach this speed in about 3 seconds. It would be a not very significant improvement, but enough to confirm the improvements introduced. This model is expected to begin production in the coming months, with the first deliveries already in 2024. In relation to the Performance version, everything points to the second half of next year as the starting point for its manufacturing.
