The new £39,990 Tesla Model 3 is now available in the UK

There are now only two Teslas that you can buy in RHD. Here’s the updated version of one of them

Published: 17 Oct 2023

Back at the start of September we brought you news about the updated Tesla Model 3 with its sharp new look, fancy new interior and improved range.

We have more news, for this upgraded Model 3 is now available to order in the UK, with deliveries set to start in January 2024. This is mostly news because nothing is a given with Tesla these days. Heck, earlier this year it announced - completely out of the blue - that the Model S and Model X would no longer be built in right-hand drive.

There’s more, because the fresh 3 will actually be cheaper on our shores than the last one. Tesla’s prices seem to change more often than This Morning's presenting line-up at the moment, but in September the entry level previous Model 3 was £42,990. This new one will start at £39,990.

You can click these blue words to remind yourself of all the updates, but in terms of styling at least the new 3 is leagues ahead of the previous car, no? And with over two million examples sold worldwide, the outgoing version didn’t exactly struggle to sell.
