[U-EV] 16V lithium-ion battery and AMD chip import, entry-level LFP battery replacement, 2022 Tesla Model 3 domestic delivery

www.autofun.co.th—As previously reported by U-CAR, Tesla will adjust the Model 3 model lineup in January 2022, renaming the entry-level rear-wheel drive Standard Range Plus model to Model 3 and maintaining the price at $1,654,900. The range on the official website has been increased to 485 km, 619 km and 586 km in that order. The official range has been increased to 485 km, 619 km and 586 km. The free colour scheme has also been changed from white to night silver. The new 2022 model year vehicles were delivered in late February and from the information delivered to owners and onboard screens, the new year-style entry rear drive has been replaced with a Chinese-made LFP lithium-iron phosphate battery, the onboard computer processor has been replaced with an AMD Ryzen instead of an Intel Atom and the 12V lead-acid battery has been replaced with a 16V lithium-ion battery.

Previously, in November 2021, Tesla was the first to change the name of the Model 3 Standard Range Plus to “Model 3”, thus announcing the departure of the SR+ name. In Taiwan, on 7 January 2022, Tesla will follow the US in changing the name of the Model 3 entry-level rear-wheel drive model from the former Standard Range Plus to the “Model 3” moniker (to be followed by the RWD moniker). The other models, including Model 3 Long Range and Model 3 Performance, have not been changed. The price of the entire model range remains unchanged at $1,654,900 for the Model 3, $1,972,900 for the Model 3 Long Range and $2,224,900 for the Model 3 Performance. And there is some news comes illustrating that the 2023 Tesla Model 2 will come 2023 in the future.

The new RWD model, which has dropped the SR+ nomenclature, has made significant changes to its power specification and range. The new RWD model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds, down from 5.6 seconds, which is 0.5 seconds slower, and maintains a top speed of 225 km/h. However, its WLTP range has increased by 37 kilometres to 485 kilometres, up from 448 kilometres in the past. At the time, Tesla did not confirm whether the change in range for the outgoing Model 3 was due to the switch to a Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery. However, according to the recent delivery of the new Model 3, it was confirmed that the new Model 3 rear drive in China has been replaced by an LFP battery supplied by China’s CATL Ningde Times, instead of the previous NCA trivalent lithium battery.

Tesla officials say that the LFP battery version is actually recommended to be charged to 100% from time to time, while the normal NCA lithium battery version is recommended to be charged to 90% considering its life cycle.

Tesla Taiwan follows the US in changing the name of the Model 3 entry-level rear-wheel drive model from the former Standard Range Plus to “Model 3”.
In addition to the entry-level RWD models, the New Year’s model 3 in Taiwan also has a slightly different WLTP range for the higher-end Long Range and Performance models. For example, the Long Range model has a slight increase of 5 kilometres to 619 kilometres, up from 614 kilometres in the past, while the Performance model, the top performance flagship, has an increase of 19 kilometres to 586 kilometres, up from 567 kilometres.

However, the performance targets of 4.4 seconds at standstill and a top speed of 233 km/h for the Long Range and 3.3 seconds at standstill and a top speed of 261 km/h for the Performance models have not been changed on the official website or in the information released at the show.

According to the WLTC test data released by the Energy Bureau, the range is in line with the WLTP range announced by Tesla in China.
In addition to confirming the replacement of the rear drive with the LFP lithium-iron phosphate battery, the Model 3 Long Range display also shows the replacement of the on-board computer processor supplier from the previous Intel Atom to AMD Ryzen, which is equivalent to replacing the computer with MCU The Model 3 MCU 3.0 version has 8GB of RAM memory and 256GB of internal hard drive memory (SSD), up from 64GB. The battery in the front luggage compartment cover has also been replaced by a 16V lithium-ion battery instead of a 12V lead-acid battery. However, it does not appear that the double glazing in the rear seat has been replaced with the overseas version.

The Model 3 Long Range display also shows the switch from the previous Intel Atom to AMD Ryzen as the onboard computer processor supplier.
Another significant change for the new model 3 is the change in the standard free paint colour from the previous ‘Pearl White (Multi-coat)’ to ‘Night Silver’, so to revert to the previous free ‘Pearl White (Multi-coat)’ colour you now have to pay $37,500 for the option, the rest of the car, including ‘Pure Black’ and ‘Dark Blue’ are also available for $37,500, while ‘Bright Red (Multi-coat)’ is available for $75,000. The “Bright Red (Multi-coat)” is available for an additional $75,000. In terms of equipment, Tesla has standardised on the electric heating of the steering wheel and the electric heating of the front and rear seats, which were not available on the original entry SR+ models, since November 2021.

Another significant change for the new model year is the change in the standard free paint colour from the previous ‘Pearl White (Multi-coat)’ to ‘Night Silver’, so that the previous free ‘Pearl White (Multi-coat)’ colour is now available at a cost of $37,500.
According to the test data published by the Energy Bureau, the Tesla model 3 has a maximum power of 261 hp, a maximum range of 485 km and an energy consumption of 6.9 km/kWh in the WLTC mode, while the Model 3 Long Range has a maximum power of 346 hp, a maximum range of 619 km and an energy consumption of 6.7 km/kWh.
