Today, we found the 2023 Model 3 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website, with the range display remaining essentially the same as the 2022.
This model is divided into three main versions in the United States:
RWD 18-inch wheels with 272 mi and 19-inch wheels with 267 mi;
AWD 576 km on 18-inch wheels and 358 mi on 19-inch wheels;
Performance 20-inch wheels with a range of 315 mi.
While the AWD Long Range appears on the EPA website, it cannot actually be ordered from the Tesla website, though it may be included in the available inventory. Tesla says the Long Range AWD is expected to be "available in 2023" (orders have been discontinued for 2022 due to high demand at that time).
Notably, the Model 3 RWD is the only rear-wheel drive version and the only one with lithium iron phosphate batteries (Ningde Times square cells).
The 2023 Tesla Model 3 is reported to start at $42,990, and starting April 1, the Tesla Model 3 RWD will be disqualified from receiving the full federal tax credit because its LFP batteries are imported from Ningde Times rather than locally produced, making it much less competitive.
