Tesla is making a significant move in its home market, with the latest Model 3 Performance setting a new standard exclusively for the US. While Canada, Australia, Europe, and Asia receive a slightly altered version, the US model stands out. Here’s the breakdown:

The 2025 Tesla Model 3 Performance, priced at $52,990 before taxes and incentives, boasts impressive specs: a manufacturer-estimated range of 296 miles (476 kilometers), weighing 4,054 lb (1,839 kg). Its enhanced dual-motor powertrain generates 510 hp and 547 lb-ft (741 Nm) of torque, alongside various chassis and interior upgrades.

Comparing it to the BMW i4 M50, although the i4 has 26 hp more, it’s significantly heavier and costlier. Even on 20-inch wheels, the Model 3 Performance outshines with an extra 69 miles (111 kilometers) of range per charge.

But the difference isn’t just in performance; it’s in regulations. In the US, Tesla’s stringent EV tax credit rules mandate specific battery compositions and production locations. The Model 3 Performance likely uses a revised Panasonic 2170 cell, qualifying it for the full tax credit. In contrast, other regions can use battery packs from Chinese suppliers, resulting in a power disparity.

While Americans enjoy the top-tier Model 3, there’s hope for others. Tesla’s history of switching battery packs without notice suggests potential upgrades for non-US models, providing opportunities for parity.
