Wait, shouldn't this package exist for the Tesla Model Y?
While Tesla vehicles are a huge deal in Norway, some folks need more capability to deal with the country's rough terrain and weather conditions. However, the Model X is quite expensive and the Model Y hasn't yet launched in Norway. So, how about an off-road package for the Tesla Model 3?
That's exactly what German aftermarket company Delta4x4 created. Sure, the Model 3 isn't an off-road vehicle, but its incredible electric torque, available dual-motor AWD setup, and long electric range do help. This package attempts to take it to the next level, with a lift kit and aftermarket rims and tyres. According to Delta4x4 (via MotorTrend):
"This iconic electric car is not well suited for the Nordic terrain. The Tesla's batteries situated deep down in the vehicle can make driving in this at times unpredictable environment almost catastrophic."
The package's suspension kit lifts the Model 3 35-mm (1.4-inch) and adds aftermarket 18-inch wheels and 18-inch all-terrain tyres. Delta4x4 says all the components are now ready to order.
The best part is that the parts are relatively inexpensive. The lift kit costs 480 euros (about £420). The Cooper 245/45R18 tyres start at 1,500 euros (about £1,350). If you buy the tyres along with the FlangeLock-protected Klassik B wheels, the price is 2,500 euros (£2,250), plus the assembly fee.
