Who Needs the Electric Hummer When You Can Buy an Off-Road Tesla Model 3?

For the Tesla fan who may need to plow through some dirt.


Tesla has built an impressive stable of S-3-X-Y electric vehicles. But one notable absence — at least until the Cybertruck starts rolling off factory lines — is anything equipped for off-roading. (The new Model Y crossover has capability so soft it became a meme.) That’s left an opening for other car companies to attack Tesla on with their own EVs capable of going beyond the pavement, whether it’s Porsche’s Taycan Cross Turismo soft-roader or the wild likes of the new GMC Hummer EV.

But now, Tesla is getting by with a little help from its friends. German tuner Delta 4×4 has stepped into that breach by offering an aftermarket off-road package for the Tesla Model 3.

The package includes a lift kit that raises the Model 3 1.4 inches, as well as special 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tires. According to Autoevolution, the entire package, depending on how fancy you want to go with the wheels and tires, costs between $2,200 and $3,000.

That setup won’t convert the Model 3 into a Jeep Wrangler, but it could be useful if you live in a cold, snowy environment — such as Norway, where Teslas are extremely popular — or have a dirt road to traverse on the way to your house. It also just looks cool…which is a significant reason off-road accessories have become an enormous market.

There’s no mention of how this package will affect the Model 3’s aerodynamics and range, though, which could be a concern. Still, all the range in the world won’t do you any good if your car can’t make it down the road in the first place.
