Recently, there were media reports that Tesla was seeking approval from Chinese regulators to produce an upgraded model 3s for the domestic Model 3. Meanwhile, people familiar with the situation said the Model 3s would have longer range and rear-wheel drive than the Model 3,400 km range.
But it is doubtful that, judging by the information that Tesla has previously released, it has not announced that it will launch the Model 3s version.
Currently, there is only one version of the domestic Tesla Model 3, the standard end-of-life upgrade, and the NEDC’s comprehensive range is 445km.
At the same time, yesterday we obtained the new version of the domestic Tesla Model 3 declaration map on the Website of the Ministry of Industry and Information, the declaration information shows that the car uses a maximum power of 202Kw drive motor, and the top speed of 225Km, these core performance data are consistent with the imported Model 3 long-range after-drive version.
And, from the declaration chart, the new car and the domestic Model 3 standard range drive upgrade in the appearance of no obvious difference, its body tail is still affixed with ChineseLOGO “Tesla”, as well as the English LOGO “Model 3”, and did not find the word “Model 3s”.
From this, we infer that some of the media claimthated that Tesla’s model 3 upgrade model was not the Model 3s, but the long-range rear-wheel-drive version of the domestic Model 3.
In this regard, we have also asked the relevant sources for confirmation. Subsequently, industry sources confirmed that the Model 3s model is indeed a media misinformation, it should be the media to the Reuters article in the title of the plural translated into the model, so there is no Tesla Model 3s model.
