Info has just leaked out that CARB has posted a certificate confirming the range of the Tesla Model 3 Performance and Dual-Motor Variants.

***UPDATE – Musk, via Twitter, notes that deliveries of the Performance version should begin soon and says that 100 have been made for test drive purposes. See embedded Tweet below:

We’ve embedded the Tweet with the CARB certificate below:

We should note that the 455.32-mile rating is not a real-world or EPA figure, but rather it’s based on CARB methodology.

It’s highly interesting to see that the dual-motor variants have a shorter range, according to CARB, than the RWD counterpart, which under the same testing methodology received a range rating of 495.1 miles. We’ll dig deeper into this discrepancy soon.

We should point out that the official figures for the standard long-range Model 3 (non dual-motor, non Performance) are as follows:

City range of 321.9 miles and highway range of 295.5 miles. Combined range works out to 310 miles (the same figures Tesla’s been noting all along), but that figure was “voluntarily lowered” by the automaker

Tesla Model 3 Performance specs according to the automaker:

  • 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds
  • 155 mph top speed
  • Range: 310 miles

Tesla is at present driving the Performance variation of the Model 3 as it looks to benefit as quickly as time permits, so it’s nothing unexpected to see this certificate fly up now, as it takes into account the vehicle to be enlisted in California. Hope to see a surge of Performance variations of the Model 3 hit California lanes in the coming weeks.

Developing story…
