It appears that Tesla’s Model 3 “Highland” may be coming to the US soon, even though it did not initially debut there. Reports indicate that several of the facelifted iterations have already been seen in the US, including one at the Firebaugh Supercharger. Therefore, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before the Model 3 Highland is officially available in the US.

The freshly-updated Tesla Model 3 was looking rather fetching in a darker Deep Blue Metallic shade when X user Tesla Owners Silicon Valley happened across it. The fully recharged battery was located alongside another of Tesla’s most recent offerings; the Cybertruck, which had beaten the revamped sedan to its debut entrance into the US market in November.

Despite the fact that the Model 3 has an “Engineering Vehicle” sticker on its left-hand side, indicating that this is not a production model, the car has already made its way to regions such as China, Australia and Europe. This particular unit even had a badge in Chinese, leading us to believe that it came from Gigafactory Shanghai. When the Model 3 officially arrives in the US, it will be interesting to see what changes have been made since this engineering vehicle was built.

The alluring Model 3 Highland is ready to take on the electrifying competition of the sedan sector with its better-than-ever EV functionality. With its Long Range AWD version, the scope of a single top-up now spans an impressive WLTP-rated 391 miles in opposition to 374 previously. Furthermore, its prestigious charging rate affords 175 miles more locomotion after only 15 minutes, compared to 147 before.

Despite still requiring an official statement of the US version’s specs particularly within the stricter range guidelines of the EPA, Robert Scoble, an X user, has received news from a Tesla representative which comments that the revised variant could potentially be available as early as the first quarter of 2024.

Presently, it appears Tesla is emptying the stock of the Model 3 to make space for the Highland, justifying the noteworthy discounts recently implemented. We also anticipate higher prices in 2024 as the Model 3 will no longer qualify for the tax credit under the altered regulations in the Inflation Reduction Act.
