Unlike traditional car companies, Tesla generally does not make large-scale remodeling of vehicles, because the company does not change the characteristics of vehicles through remodeling and upgrading. At any time of the year, Tesla may release new features, and then add these new features to the newly produced models, and for old car owners, they can get the new features through the company’s OTA upgrade. .
However, there are also times when Tesla will bring some big changes when it changes its models every year. On the 2022 models, Tesla has updated the nominal cruising range of the two most popular models, Model 3 and Model Y.
The range of the new Model 3 Standard Endurance Plus has been upgraded from 262 miles (approximately 421 kilometers) to 272 miles (approximately 437 kilometers) on a single charge.

The cruising range of the Model 3 long-range version has been increased from 353 miles (approximately 568 kilometers) to 358 miles (approximately 576 kilometers). This cruising range is also calculated based on 18-inch wheels. After the 19-inch wheels are upgraded, the cruising range of this version is Descent to 334 miles (approximately 537 kilometers).
The mileage of Model Y long-range version has been increased from 326 miles (approximately 524 kilometers) to 330 miles (approximately 531 kilometers). This range is based on the standard 19-inch wheels. If you upgrade to 20-inch wheels, the battery life The mileage will drop to 318 miles (approximately 511 kilometers).
It is still unclear what factors have allowed the vehicle to obtain a higher range, nor can it be determined whether Tesla has upgraded the battery used in the vehicle. Earlier, Tesla announced that the Model 3 standard battery life version will begin to use lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries.
