The most immediate concern potential drivers have when it comes to the battery is how long it will last on a single charge. This is because the range on a single charge impacts day-to-day life. People want to know that they can commute to work, run errands, and simply live life without having to worry about charging their Model 3. The simple answer to those concerns is that they can do all of those things with their Tesla Model 3. All Teslas get an average of 262 miles per charge, but the Model 3 Performance is particularly notable at 315 miles. Even better, if you have the long-range model, the average range on a single charge jumps to 353 miles (via Opti Watt).
Of course, as with any car, the range from your Model 3 is going to depend on a few things. First, how you drive the vehicle influences its range. For example, Ford explains that aggressive driving can cause your EV’s range to dip, as maintaining slower and more steady speeds will increase efficiency. All of this impacts how far your Model 3 can go between charges, albeit by varying degrees. Road conditions also play a part, and this includes whether or not your path has hills or other inclines. Even something as simple as turning on an EV’s climate control system can influence how many miles you can drive with your Model 3.
