Tesla limits the Model 3 to 149 horsepower

It doesn't matter where in the world you're driving Tesla. In Singapore, the base Model 3 is now limited to 149 horsepower.

At home, Tesla does not say exactly how many horsepower you get in a basic version of the Model 3. But the brand does, on the other hand, in both Singapore and Turkey.

Due to tax rules based on the performance of the cars, the cheapest Model 3 is now quite limited in the two countries.

That's what InsideEvs writes.

The situation is worst in Singapore. Here, the cars have received an update that very specifically limits them to 149 horsepower. This is evident from the piece of code behind the software.

In Turkey, Tesla and future owners of the brand's cars have already been subject to such a regime for more than a month now.

The Turkish authorities tax cars with an output higher than 159 kW (216 horsepower, ed.) far more heavily.

The same rule that applies to the Model 3, Tesla – at least in Turkey – has also put down the Model Y.

Because if you can settle for the 216 horsepower, the base model, the Standard Range with rear-wheel drive, is as much as 60 percent cheaper than the next model in the range, the Long Range with four-wheel drive.

If we're just going round Singapore again, the 149 horsepower isn't the only thing you have to live with as the owner of the 'cheapest' Model 3. Because it's furiously expensive.

In the country, which is known for having a pressure on the registration tax that is wilder than the Danish one, the car costs a staggering 70,000 dollars. This corresponds to DKK 481,000. For comparison, Tesla has just lowered the price in Denmark, so that a Model 3 can now be bought for less than DKK 300,000.
