    EPA Document Reveals Tesla Model 3 To Produce 258 Horsepower


    • We also learn how big the battery is for the long-range model

    When Tesla finally revealed the Model 3 a couple weeks, we learned about a number of items such as max range (220 or 310 if you opt for the larger battery), how fast they hit 60 mph, and what will come standard. What wasn't talked about was how big the battery was and power figures. Thanks to some EPA documents, we have some idea on both.

    InsideEVs found some preliminary documents dealing with the long-range Model 3 and figured out that has an 80.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack - the document says it is a 230 Ah battery pack with 350 V nominal voltage. We should note that CEO Elon Musk has said previously that the Model 3 could not take anything larger than a 75-kWh battery. But, InsideEVs says Musk could have been referring to useable, not the max capacity of the pack.

    We also have learned that the long-range Model 3 produces 258 horsepower. Sadly, no torque figure was given in the documents.

    Musk said the battery packs are around 50 and 75 kWh in the Model 3.  258 hp is decent since the torque rating is probably higher and it comes on right away.  And the Model 3 is like 3600 lbs, it isn't that heavy of a car for an EV.
