The Tesla Model 3 returns the best MPGe for EVs offering over 200 miles of range.
The Tesla Model 3’s Monroney Sticker has surfaced online, revealing the car’s EPA figures for the Long Range model that has a 310-mile range. According to the EPA, the Model 3 returns 131 MPGe in the city and 120 MPGe on the highway, for a 126-MPGe combined rating. That also means the Model 3 is the most efficient for electric vehicles with a range of over 200 miles, but it’s still bested by the Hyundai Ioniq Electric that returns 136 MPGe. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric however, only has a range of 110 miles.
What that means is the standard Tesla Model 3 will likely be more efficient than the Long Range version. The standard Model 3 will travel up to 220 miles on a single charge. Electrek however, believes it will be unlikely that the standard Model 3 will beat the Hyundai Ioniq Electric in terms of efficiency, mainly because of the Ioniq’s small 28-kWh battery pack.
The American automaker is focusing on building the Model 3 Long Range variant first, in order to simplify things as it ramps up production. The standard Model 3’s battery pack should enter production later this year in November.
