Tesla Model 3 Performance Lease
If you’re in the market for a top-of-the-range Tesla which won’t break the bank, our Tesla Model 3 Performance lease deals could be perfect for you. This is a serious car under any circumstances, never mind within the world of fully electric motoring. We consider ourselves Tesla fanatics here at DriveElectric, which is why we’re so happy to offer you the chance to lease a Tesla Model 3 of such epic proportions.
When you take out a Tesla Model 3 Performance lease in the UK, you’re getting one of the best cars to drive that this ground-breaking marque has ever made. Make no mistake, this is a proper sports saloon. The Performance upgrade gives you larger 20” wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, as well as competition-style Brembo brakes. There’s also a carbon fibre rear spoiler, lowered suspension and increased speed and acceleration.
Thrill to drive
The extra power you get with a Tesla Model 3 Performance lease allows you to zip from 0-60mph in just 3.1 seconds. That’s not just quick, it’s supercar quick. There’s an increased top speed of 162mph, while the dual-motor all-wheel drive and lower suspension leads to better handling.
When you want to test this car’s mettle, you can engage Track Mode for even greater thrills. You’ll need to be careful though, as this dials back the traction and stability control systems through what Tesla calls its Vehicle Dynamics Controller. Track Mode also shifts the delivery of torque between the front and rear axles to aid cornering and increase both your car’s regenerative braking and cooling system.
Charging and range
Despite the incredible performance, this model still boasts exceptional figures in terms of efficiency and economy. The Model 3 Performance comes with Tesla’s updated 82kWh battery, which is capable of covering up to 352 miles on a single charge. That’s the WLTP range, with our ‘real world’ estimate for this model coming in at around 285 miles. This is still more than enough for most of us for our daily commute.
Using a 7kW home charger, you can restore the battery from empty to full in just over 11 and a half hours. Typically the average energy costs across the UK are around 14p per kWh, but if you manage to bag an EV-specific energy tariff with electricity charged at 5p per kWh, this means a full charge costs just £4.10. This translates to a cost per mile of only 1.4p, which is incredibly low for a car with these performance levels.
When you select a Tesla Model 3 lease through DriveElectric, you can enjoy the full benefit of the UK and Ireland’s Tesla Supercharger network, which now numbers more than 500 charge points. There are over 20,000 of these worldwide, which allow you to boost your battery by more than 170 miles in just 15 minutes. You can control all of your charging through the excellent Tesla app, which offers unrivalled convenience for EV drivers.

The Model 3 is the most affordable way to secure a Tesla lease, but there are zero compromises on quality or spec throughout the range. Like the Tesla Model 3 Long Range, the Performance model comes with an upgraded premium audio system with immersive sound. Standard equipment includes Bluetooth connectivity, satellite navigation and front and rear parking sensors, plus a power boot lid and auto-dimming, power-folding and heated side mirrors.
The party piece in the cabin though has to be the 15” touchscreen, which quite literally takes centre stage. The home of your infotainment system acts as your connection to your Model 3, allowing you to control everything from your media to charging. You can even safely leave your pet inside your car thanks to Dog Mode, which displays a message on the touchscreen saying you’ll be back soon, alongside the temperature.
You are getting a car at the forefront of modern technology when you lease a Tesla Model 3 in the UK. Packed with clever tech from the base Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus up to this top-spec version, highlights include the rear, side and forward cameras which give you a 360º view of the road. There’s a forward-facing radar that reads the road some 160 metres further ahead, while 12 ultrasonic sensors look out for nearby vehicles and pedestrians.
Back in the cockpit, you can tailor your driving position with the 12-way power-adjustable heated front seats and create individual settings for each driver. Entry into the cabin is keyless, while you can even use the app to set the two-zone climate control to your liking before you climb in.
Tesla Autopilot is the pioneering system that helps you avoid collisions. Your car can take over your steering, braking or acceleration in an emergency, helping you to stay safe on the road. And true to Tesla style, over-the-air software updates mean your car will always have the latest and greatest tech installed and ready to use.
