The Tesla Model 3 Performance 2022 was recently driven by the well-known Youtuber Bjørn Nyland who subjected it to his well-known 1,000 km test. This is a test that allows you to check fuel consumption and recharging capacity during a journey of 1,000 km. The result obtained is very interesting as this car has set a new mileage record demonstrating how the efficiency of the American electric sedan has improved over time.
According to the video, the test took place at an outside temperature of 24 degrees. Overall, the car covered 1,000 km in 9 hours and 15 minutes, which is about 40 minutes less than the 2020 model which at the time had closed the test in 9 hours and 55 minutes even if carried out with much lower external temperatures.
According to Bjørn Nyland, this was achieved by a mix of factors including greater battery capacity, improved efficiency and improved charging infrastructure. In the 1,000 km, it was only necessary to charge 4 times. At the end of the test, the onboard computer showed an average consumption of 212 Wh / km. The average speed was 108.1 km / h. The recharges were carried out after 361 km, 511 km, 661 km and 793 km.
The result obtained allowed us to beat the Model 3 Long Range which is more efficient by 5 minutes. Furthermore, the time of 9 hours and 15 minutes is only 15 minutes higher than that of the Kia Ceed PHEV taken as a reference to understand more or less how long it can take an endothermic to make the same path.
Bjørn Nyland’s 1,000km test once again demonstrated the efficiency of Elon Musk’s electric cars. Looking at the data collected by this particular test over time, it is clear that Teslas are among the least consuming electric.
However, the “1,000 km challenge” also demonstrates how crucial the charging infrastructure is for fast travel over long distances.
