Tesla Model 3 Highland detailed specs, features, and country-wise pricing



Since the dust has settled a bit after the September 1st launch of the Tesla Model 3 Highland refresh, exciting information is constantly surfacing about the vehicle.

Although the new Tesla Model 3 Highland is a design refresh of the previous generation, it’s not just a facelift. Tesla has upgraded the new Model 3 design refresh to another level. It’s a balanced equation of luxury, comfort, performance, and sustainable transportation.

Let’s explore the OEM specs of the 2024 Tesla Model 3 Highland. We will keep updating this page as more information becomes available with time.

Exterior Dimensions and Weight

Tesla instantly published the exterior dimensions information on its regional websites where it launched the new Tesla Model 3. The figures are in mm. When we converted these numbers to inches, only the width of the car exactly matched with the old-generation Tesla Model 3 (currently on sale in North America).

Tesla has increased the length of the new Model 3 Highland refresh by 26 mm (1 in) and reduced the height by 2 mm (0.078 in).

Talking about weights, the new Tesla Model 3 Higland is significantly heavier than the previous generation. The base variant i.e. Model 3 Standard is 342 lbs (155 kg) while the Model 3 Long Range AWD is 216 lbs (98 kg) heavier compared to the preceding model.

The additional weight of the Model 3 Highland refresh can be attributed to new additional components and probably a larger/heavier battery pack. New body reinforcements like the heavier doors for improved side-impact safety also contribute to the added weight of the Tesla Model 3 Highland.

With the vehicle’s overall width remaining the same, Tesla has increased the front and rear track by 4 mm each. This is an interesting development that needs further clarification by the experts, so stay tuned as soon as we find out the explanation.

The following table gives us a detailed view of the exterior dimensions of both the new and old Model 3 versions for comparison (explore complete specifications of the old Tesla Model 3).

Interior Dimensions and Features

Tesla has now released the interior dimensions of the new Highland Tesla Model 3 in its Owner’s Manual for Europe, the Middle East, and China. You can compare the interior specifications of both the new and old generation Tesla Model 3 versions in the table below.

The new Model 3 Highland has less legroom for the rear passengers. Rear legroom decreased by 0.7 in (17 mm) in the new version. However, Tesla increased shoulder room for both front and rear passengers in Model 3 Highland by 0.4 in (11 mm) and 0.2 in (4 mm) compared to the old model respectively. The rest of the interior dimensions remain almost the same.

Tesla has added the Ambient Lighting feature in Model 3 Highland’s interior which truly distinguishes it from the previous generation Model 3. Ventilated and perforated seats are another subtle but important upgrade for passenger comfort.

Front and Rear Screens

Tesla Model S and Model X were the first vehicles to get a rear touchscreen as part of the design refresh in 2021. Tesla Model 3 Highland now also comes with a rear screen.

Perhaps Tesla was aware of the popularity of the aftermarket rear screens for Model 3 and Model Y and decided to offer an OEM solution. This screen is much smaller compared to the front one but can be used for entertainment and HVAC functions.

Range and Charging

Tesla has made a great leap forward in increasing the range and charging speeds in the next-gen 2024 Tesla Model 3 Highland refresh. Since the new Model 3 has not been launched in North America yet, we don’t have the EPA estimated figures for the range. So, in the meantime, we have to rely on the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) and CLTC (China Light Duty Vehicle Test Cycle) for Model 3 Highland range numbers.

Tesla’s electric vehicles are known for their instant acceleration. This ability has won the entire lineup an elite status inside the drag racing community. The story does not end here, Tesla cars have imprinted their name on top of the lists in the track racing segment too.

Since the new Tesla Model 3 has not been launched in North America by the automaker as of yet, we have not been given the exact 0-60 mph acceleration numbers until now but rather the 0-100 km/h figures which is equal to 0-62 mph.

Tesla has not introduced a Performance variant for Model 3 Highland yet. The automaker has also capped the top speed of both the RWD and AWD variants for the new Tesla Model 3 to 201 km/h (125 mph).

Wheels and Tires

Tesla Model 3 Highland comes with the stock 18″ aero wheels — and the automaker has named them Photon Wheels. These are the wheels that help in achieving maximum efficiency and range. The premium 19″ Nova Wheels is a design modification of the old 19″ Sport Wheels (still available with the old Model 3 in the US and Canada).

We will have to wait for the customer deliveries of the new Tesla Model 3 Highland to know the details of the tires Tesla is shipping this vehicle with. In North America, Tesla shipped the Model 3 with Michelin tires for several years. The automaker switched to Hankook Kinergy GT tires just last year.

Tesla Model 3 Highland Pricing

Tesla Model 3 Highland is currently only available outside North America. Tesla will set its North American prices once the vehicle is launched in the region. For this to happen, Tesla will be upgrading its Fremont car factory in California for which the automaker hasn’t hinted at any timeline yet.

The following table (Table 6) contains prices of the new design-refreshed Tesla Model 3 Highland in countries where it is currently available. We have mentioned the equivalent price in USD as well for an estimate for our North American readers.

It is interesting to see how Tesla prices fluctuate from country to country, especially in Europe, even in countries where Euro is the standard currency. The crown for the cheapest price of a Tesla Model 3 Highland RWD in Europe goes to Norway with the price tag of 379,990 NOK (35,480 USD), this perhaps has something to do with the local EV incentives. The new Model 3 Long Range AWD is also the cheapest in Norway, it can be bought for 469,990 NOK (43,885 USD).

China won the award for the most affordable Tesla Model 3 RWD and AWD both, 259,900 CNY (35,470 USD) and 295,900 CNY (40,380 USD) respectively. Of course, this is the place where these new Tesla Model 3 Highland vehicles are manufactured, at Giga Shanghai.

These prices were recorded and last updated on 7th September 2023.
