The basics:

220 mile range on the standard battery, and a base price of $35,000.

310 mile range on the long range battery, and a base price of $44,000.

Going by the hint we got recently that the Model 3 averages 237Wh / mile, the battery pack capacities work out to be ~55kWh and 75kWh respectively.

Cd is 0.23 - which is impressive; and definitely with the standard Aero wheels. Sport wheels add $1500 and increase the Cd (and cut the range, too).

The acceleration to 60MPH is 5.5s and 5.1s respectively, and top speeds are 130MPH and 140MPH.

Detailed specs here:
