2023 tesla model 3 rwd battery size

Whether you are in the market for a used 2023 Tesla Model 3 rwd battery size or just curious about what kind of battery pack is installed in your Model 3 (or Y), knowing the type can help you understand range and charging issues that may arise. Teslas can have many different battery packs installed, from the early 1865 NCA cells found in Performance and Long Range Model 3s to the more recent prismatic Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LFP) batteries used by 2023 Model 3s manufactured in China or Berlin and the new 4680 nickel-cobalt-manganese (NCM) cells currently used in the Model Y Standard Range AWD coming out of the Texas Gigafactory.

You can find the battery pack’s size and chemistry by checking the underside of the frunk cover of your Model 3. Some of the earlier Tesla Model 3s and Model Ys have an additional sticker located under this panel that lists the battery size in kWh. This isn’t always easily visible, though, and can sometimes be removed by Tesla during the refurbishment of a used vehicle.

You can also check your Tesla’s battery health (including usable capacity) by navigating to Controls > Software > Additional Vehicle Information on the touchscreen in your vehicle. It’s important to note, however, that accessing service mode can result in actual damage to your Tesla so this should only be attempted by trained Tesla technicians or with the express permission of the owner. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the 12V battery supplies power to a variety of smaller components and systems in your Tesla including the lights, windshield wipers, power windows, washer fluid pumps, air conditioning, ABS electronics and the central display.
