Here Is The Updated Price Of The New Tesla Model 3 In Malaysia
The updated Tesla Model 3 starts from RM189,000 in Malaysia
We already had the Tesla Model Y crossover SUV when the American electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer launched in the country, now we have the Tesla Model 3 sedan and not the old one either, oh no, we get the brand new and more good looking refreshed Model 3 and it starts from just RM189,000, making the barrier of entry for owning a Tesla in Malaysia lower.
So the Tesla Model 3 lands in Malaysia with two variants to choose from, namely the Tesla Model 3 base model and the all-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 long range variant. These two cars go for RM189,00 and RM218,000 respectively and both models mean that one can now own a Tesla in Malaysia at a cheaper rate than the Model Y.
Tesla estimates it will begin deliveries in late 2023, probably somewhere in October or November at the earliest. The base variant of the Model 3 in Malaysia boasts a WLTP range of 513km as well as a top speed of 201km/h while having a century sprint time of 6.1 seconds. Obviously, like the Model Y, paint and leather colours are likely to cost more.
Powering the updated Tesla sedan is a 170kW capacity battery and the long range all-wheel drive version of the sedan has a much more potent WLTP range, rated at 629km and shares a 201km/h top speed with the base model but is considerably faster to 100km/h from standstill at just 4.4 seconds.
Visually, the exterior of the updated Tesla has not changed too much, but it is much sportier and much sleeker now. The headlights are also much sharper and less weird looking than before. The tail lights are also completely connected now as in they are one singular piece each connected to the rear instead of two-separate pieces each.
On the inside, it is unclear if there are any changes, if any and this surely is not going to matter to most Tesla buyers as the simple layout of the interior is a plus point for them. Either way, we shall have to wait and see the changes on the inside but for the most part, the car has not changed much. Whether this is good or bad is up to you, though.
