If you purchased a Tesla Model 3 brand new, you probably remember deciding between the 18” Aero Wheels or the 19” Sport Wheels.

Battery and Range
Currently, Tesla offers three trims of the Model 3 that can be ordered directly from their site. This includes the Rear-Wheel Drive, Long Range and Performance models, respectively. The Rear-Wheel Drive trims are currently shipped with a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery, whereas the Long Range and Performance models have a lithium-ion battery pack. The key difference for you and me, is that LFP batteries can be charged to 100% each day, whereas lithium-ion batteries are recommended to be charged between 80% and 90% to avoid faster degradation of your battery.
Before entering a car wash, you probably questioned “how do I put the car in neutral?” Unlike many ICE, it is not as trivial for Model 3. Don’t worry, you are not alone. On the Model 3, you simply push down for 1 full click to get into drive, and then softly raise the stick WITHOUT clicking for a few seconds and it will shift into neutral. I hope this helps! Also, don’t forget to turn off automatic wipers before entering that car wash.
