2024 Tesla Model 3 Performance 1/4 Mile Time Nears 10 Seconds

An owner of Tesla’s 2024 Model 3 Performance, MFAM Tesla (@JoshuaThePilot), has shared screenshots revealing the performance metrics of the new electric sedan.

The screenshots displayed a quarter-mile time of 11.09 seconds and a 0-60 mph time of 3.15 seconds (2.92 seconds with a 1-foot rollout).

“You asked and you shall receive,” the Tesla owner commented, noting the conditions: “outside air temperature 69°, state of charge 91%, battery temperature just got done super charging, road conditions. It was raining and wet. I could feel the tire slipping during launch. This is a 10.9 second car under good conditions.”

The blistering quarter-mile time definitely could break the 11-second barrier. That’s a 10-second car at a price starting at $54,990 in the US. Tesla’s Model S Plaid hit the quarter-mile in 8 seconds or so, but costs $87,990 (way cheaper than its starting price of almost $140,000 in 2021).

Tesla’s updated Model 3 Performance has an improved EPA estimated range of 303 miles, up from the previous 296 miles. The electric sedan also boasts a top speed of 163 mph (262 kph).

The base price of the Model 3 Performance is $54,990 in the U.S., which can be reduced to $42,490 after accounting for $7,500 in federal tax credits and $5,000 in five-year gas savings.

“Not bad for a 50k vehicle,” said Joshua.
