The new TESLA Model 3 has arrived in Ireland!

The first TESLA Model 3 models have arrived in Ireland and been delivered to Irish customers.

The new Model 3 is Tesla’s smaller, simpler and more affordable car. It goes on sale in Ireland priced from €47,840 on the road and is available in three variants: Standard Range Plus, Long Range AWD and Performance.

The entry model has a range of 409 km (WLTP), while the Long Range AWD model has a range up to 560 km.

The Model 3 Performance is available from €63,061 and is capable of achieving 0-100 kmh in 3.4s. Standard equipment includes Track Mode, a carbon fibre spoiler, 20” performance wheels with red brake calipers and aluminium alloy pedals.

Two of the first Irish customers are John Burke, a self-confessed petrol head and motor racing enthusiast, and Peter Harte, an original TESLA Roadster owner.

The Model 3 comes with a 4 year/80,000 km vehicle warranty and an 8 year/160,000 km battery/drive unit warranty.

The TESLA Model S and Model X SUV first came to Ireland in 2017 when Tesla opened its store and service centre in Sandyford, Dublin. There are three Supercharger locations in Ireland with further sites planned and a network of over 40 Destination Charging locations.

Tesla has recently added a mobile service offering in Ireland, which saves customers the time of travelling to and from a service centre and helps remove 80% of volume from service centres.

Tesla has delivered over 500,000 cars worldwide since the brand’s inception. With nearly 140,000 units sold, the TESLA Model 3 was the bestselling premium vehicle in the US for 2018.
