Seems like Tesla has pretty much done a model refresh with the Model 3.  Facelifted interior, chrome highlights replaced with black on the exterior, power liftgate for the "trunk", new wheels, but more important than all of that, a pretty hefty increase in range, which has come from switching the HVAC to the heatpump system from the Model Y.

The Long Range Dual Motor has had its official range lifted by 30 miles to 353 miles on the EPA cycle.

Rumours of other changes like acoustic glass and improved efficiency via software enhancements are also knocking about but not sure if that's official.

They've also cut the price.

Just when the other car manufacturers are starting to get their act together, Tesla raises the bar...

Has the UK price been cut.
I know that Bjorn Nyland has reported that the Norwegian price has been cut by c. EUR 3,000 but comments on his YouTube channel suggested that was Norway only and not elsewhere in Europe.

I think it's only Norway at the moment, but price cuts are a Tesla thing as they reduce costs. I suspect it's Elon's competitive nature as Norway is quite a mature Tesla market, and the E-tron is beating it lately (till the TMY arrives).

Officially "Awesome" because Frotter said so!

We really liked the framing the chrome gave, anyone know what the replacement (in black) is? how it has been treated or owt?

Keen to know what difference the new aero wheels give back to battery potential.

& why has the warranty on the second hand vehicles been pulverised to a year? (and what does it affect, I don't know as I wasn't aware of how far the old warranty went).

The increased performance is very welcome, as would a price cut.
