Tesla has confirmed that its Model 3, in AWD Long-range guise, will offer 338 miles of range on a WLTP cycle, meaning it takes the lead as the EV with the longest official range.
The Hyundai Kona EV previously laid claim to the title, with a range of 279 miles in 64kWh form.
It comes as the car maker launches its configurator for European customers who have already put down a deposit for a Model 3 saloon, revealing previously unconfirmed pricing and range details.
Model 3 pricing announced in Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands and France suggest the entry-level EV will be available from around £50,000, falling to £46,500 after taking into consideration the £3500 UK government incentive for zero-emission vehicles.
The Model 3 is on show in UK dealerships for the first time, with demonstration models on display at Tesla’s London Park Royal and Manchester Stockport locations, ahead of right-hand-drive models arriving in the second half of 2019.
