First look at Tesla’s new Power Sports wheel for Performance Model 3 in China



First images of Tesla’s new 19” Power Sports wheel for your Performance Model 3 have surfaced online via Chinese internet giant Tencent media. The photos, first shared with Twitter consumer JayinShanghai, provide a real-life glance of this new aero-style wheel that’s now only available for the dual motor performance variation of the Model 3 in China.

The presence of this new wheel design was revealed earlier this year after Tesla opened its online configurator to the Chinese marketplace and Teslarati immediately took notice of a difference between the US-based Model 3 style studio along with the one available in China. Tesla’s Chinese variant of this Model 3 configurator contains 19″ Power Sports brakes for the performance variant of the car versus a larger diameter 20″ Sport Wheel on U.S. variations of this all-electric vehicle.

Leaked photos on Tencent clearly demonstrate a Multi-Coat Red and Pearl White Model 3 that’s adorned with a set of brakes that obviously differs from layouts currently on U.S. cars.

Naturally in the pictures is that the vulnerable lug nuts, which is probably as a result of absence of hubcaps and wheel center caps. Power Sports aero brakes include a hubcap to “better accommodate to various road conditions”, based on wording located on Tesla’s Model 3 configurator in China.

The China variant Performance Model 3’so in the pictures are the very first batch of cars to get there in the country and were obtained by Tencent Auto in Hong Kong. Tesla’s configurator webpage for China previously suggested that delivery of this Dual Motor Model 3 and  Performance Model 3 could begin sometime in March 2019, with an additional Standard Range variant coming in mid-2019. These first deliveries are just 1 element of Tesla’s major plans for expanding its presence on earth ’s biggest electric car industry.

The California-based electric carmaker has broken floor on Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, a presence which will allow the company to mass produce its cars available during China while skirting import tariffs. Based on Tesla CEO Elon Musk, building is anticipated to be completed by this summer and the very first local Model 3’therefore produced by the close of the year. Tesla’s forthcoming Model Y will also be made in the mill.
