Thanks to Richard Symons for lending us his Model 3 Performance - semost.info/http/hjqM-6MiqlF3qUq4GMVhkg.html
Mat’s got his hands on a new Tesla Model 3 Performance... And he's here to share a truly in-depth review with you!
As you’d expect from the name, the Model 3 Performance is one EV which can compete with the best when it’s on the road. With dual electric motors, it can put down 462hp and 639Nm of torque… That’s 96hp & 130Nm more than the Model 3 Long Range! Not only that, but its claimed range is only 8 miles shy of what the long range can achieve, too!
Of course, such performance from an electric car won’t come cheap, and you can expect to pay over £57,000 for one. So there’s just one question left… Is it worth it? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

Mat, Motor Trend, R&T and Car and Driver all use a 1 ft Roll-out (like the timing lights in a drag race) when calculating acceleration runs. They subtract 0.3 seconds from the actual time (from a standing stop) to 60mph. So using their calculations the 2021 Model 3 Performance you are driving hit 60 in 2.99 seconds on that 3.29 run in Track Mode.

All the electric gizmos, draining the batteries, but this is an aside, why oh why given all the speed cameras for the UK market at least, no HUD? It has saved my licence in my MK4 Focus ST more than once. I don't even look into the dash so having to look at where my air vent sort of is to see my speed: Crazy. As for the alloys drawing air from the brakes on one side and pushing air on the other, no good for the feng shui.

I am sure that heat pump question was just a bait and a joke but here is my shot at explaining in layman’s terms: simple electric heater would use 1kwh electricity to deliver 1kwh heat (3.6MJ), heat pump would use 3-4times less electric energy to deliver the same heat so say 0.3kwh. Gas is used that can be compressed with the pump and thus the temperature would rise. The compressed side is the hot side. The hot side is used to blow hot air in the car and by doing so, cooling the hot side of the heat pump system. Then the gas is let to expand on the cold side. The expanded gas has very low temperature because heat was already taken from it when it was compressed to heat the car. The expanded gas temp. is much lower than the outside air so it can absorb heat from outside and then be compressed again to the hot side and so on. Heat pump is much more complex device than a simple resistive heater though.

The thing about Model 3 is that the battery is bolted from both sides, you have to remove most of the cabin interior to be able to remove the battery. Hours and hours of work same shit with the Model Y. So far only S and X can remove battery from bottom bolts. And it will soon get worse the battery will be a integrated structural body part, last but not least ; Tesla will not let us use our battery for V2G. Next car for me will be a V2G car. Sorry Tesla will miss you. 😥

Put simply, the heatpump takes heat from anywhere, for example the brakes, and puts it where its needed, like the interior Also, when doing 0-60 tests, you should fill up the battery as far as you can

Knob gang, we need the basic thing to be controlled by knobs and buttons, like climate, glovebox ,stereo and normal handles for doors ( i know thy have an "emergency" handles but it beeps every time, and says "use the button"). Its a great car but it will be great if Tesla makes a option with more knobs and buttons.

Is this model 3 performance produced in US? Which battery is used in 2021 Tesla model 3 performance, LG or Panasonic? Looks like the car produced in China is different from the one imported, as the former’s battery turn to yellow warning much sooner in track mode, and this mode would last longer compared to the overseas model 3 performance, meanwhile the power is probably limited

Heat pumps cost a lot of money, are loud, require more maintenance, larger risk of breaking and barely bring any benefit to energy consumption. For the price of a heat pump I'd rather prefer more battery capacity.

@Roger Wilco - justice and really clean floors Exactly, people talk about heat pumps like it's some new technology that is inherently complicated. It isn't, they are used has an example for thermodynamics 101.
Roger Wilco - justice and really clean floors
Roger Wilco - justice and really clean floors 23 dagar sedan
@David G The inherent efficiency of heat pumps (latent heat of vaporisation) has been known about since before the invention of the compressor. The fact that heat pumps are so good they can extract usable heat energy from the air at or even below the freezing point of water to heat a home that could just as easily do so in a car with excess heat to get rid of in battery packs etc. Maybe they might need a boost from resistive heating but seeing as we already need to wait for engines to get warm, why? We quite literally have heat pumps in cars already.
David G
David G 25 dagar sedan
@Marcus Fleuti What are this issues inherent to heat pumps? To the best of my knowledge there aren't any that don't already exist in a regular AC unit, which are also noisy if not properly made. They don't necessarily have to be any more complex than one. No offense but I think you are confusing a heat pump with heat savaging from the battery and powertrain. Resistive heating has an efficiency of 100%, a heat pump can easily achieve 300% (even up to 600% in ideal conditions) efficiency, the only situation where a heat pump will start to lose efficiency is if temperature drops below -10ºC and contrary to what you are saying, the heat from the battery and the motor aren't strictly necessary at all, although heat scavenging certainly helps increase efficiency even more. If heat pumps where useless without heat from the battery and motor, they wouldn't be used in many other applications, like for house heating, like I have in mine. Bjorn did a video about this and found similarly to my claims, that the heat pump version of the model 3 heater consumes about 3x less energy.
Marcus Fleuti
Marcus Fleuti 25 dagar sedan
@David G Not really. Real life tests cannot confirm that and lots of issues are already known. Also heating is much more complicated than cooling. Since I own multiple EVs with and without heatpump my own experience also confirms that. I own a Hyundai Kona without HP and I drove one with HP for one week and besides the huge noise I did not notice a positive impact on the energy consumption. Your "3 to 4 times more efficient" is a pure theoretic value that might be true in laboratory conditions. But in real world it's not like that. The benefits are marginally small and not worth the money. Heatpumps work adequately OK in very well isolated buildings. But cars are barely isolated. Also there's constantly shifting conditions while driving, doors and windows being opened releasing all the energy in the cabin. This temperature drop cannot be recovered by the heatpump and is usually supported by the regular resistor heater. A heatpump would be good to keep an already warm cabin warm and use the warmth from the motor and the battery on the condensor in order to move the energy from the warm components into the cabin. But due to an EVs very high efficiency you'd need to drive very fast and longer distance in cold conditions to provide enough warmth for the heatpump. Most drivers drive less than 20 kilometers before they park their car again. During that time the heatpump is absolutely useless and all of the heat is produced by the conventional resistive heater. This kills all of the heatpumps efficiency. Of course there are cases where the heatpump can play out its benefit but these cases are really rare. I calculated for the Hyundai Kona a realistic saving of about 200 kWh per year. It would take about 35 years for the heatpump to be worth its money. In reality you can see, that cars with heatpump actually require more energy to heat up the cabin when they don't move (=cannot use the residual heat of the motor+battery). Meaning that in traffic jams the heatpumps are less effective than the regular resistor heater. This is primarily dependent on the programming of the heatpumps' logic. If done well the system will turn off the heatpump in such cases and switch to the resistor heater. But all programmings are not perfect in all situations which lowers the total efficiency. I think the money is much better spent in a larger battery pack. For the price of a HP you get about 10 kWh more battery capacity. The additional battery brings its benefit every day in summer and winter and can easily compensate for the 200 kWh/year of additional energy used for the resistor heater. I'd rather have that than a noisy heatpump which also causes higher maintenance and insurance costs. Again, I am not saying that the heatpump as a whole does not save some amount of energy. It does. But the actual saving is very minor and the money would be spent much better in other ways. The heatpump in my Renault Zoe is extremely loud and it bothers me a lot. My Kona is very silent, so is my Tesla. The BMW i3 I had - also with heatpump - was also very loud. I don't like that at all considering the neglectable benefit of this device. BTW: I'm not a native English speaker. Please excuse typing and grammatical errors. It's difficult to talk about technical things in foreign language.

A heat pump is 3 to 4 times more efficient than resistance heating. And they don't really require anymore maintenance or are at a larger risk of breaking than a regular AC unit.
