    Looking round the forum there appears to be a lot of acronyms which makes life confusing for newbies. Looking on one thread I see:

    AWD LR
    Model 3 P+
    SR+
    3PD

    I think these are all Model 3’s, but it is confusing. Are there any official identification letter? My understanding is that the Model 3 comes as standard, long range and performance versions, so what is an SR+?

    There are a lot of different variants of the car.

    We have:
    AWD LR - dual motor long range model (or All Wheel Drive). Range of around 310 miles. Specs say more, but 310 is more realistic in the real world.

    Model 3 P+ or M3P+ or just P+ - this refers to the dual motor performance version equipped with the performance pack upgrade.
    This has now been replaced with just the performance model or M3P which includes all the previously optional extras (bigger brakes, spoiler, higher top speed, 20" wheels, track mode, lowered suspension, higher top speed of 162mph). This one can also be written as just M3P, the plus is implied.

    SR+ - Standard Range Plus - the current low end model for the UK. There used to be an SR model in the US, but I believe it's just been deleted from the price book. This is a single motor rear wheel drive car with lower range than the other models (around 240 miles).

    You might also see M3P- or P-, which was available here and in the US for a short while. This is the dual motor car with the same acceleration as the performance model but lower top speed (145mph) and no performance pack goodies. It has now been removed from the price book too.

    I'm pretty sure that 3PD is the same as M3P or M3P+.

    There also used to be a single motor long range model, but this has also been removed from the price book now.

    Tesla seem to be standardising across the world on SR+, LR (dual motor/AWD) and Performance.

    Well there are currently 3 base variants available to buy (as below) and just a handful of options within those. Best to look on the Tesla website and play with the configurator.

    SR+ (standard range plus)
    LR AWD (long range all-wheel-drive)
    P+ (long range all-wheel-drive performance)

    Defunct Model 3 trims:
    LR RWD (long range rear wheel drive)
    SR (Standard Range, SR+ with software range limit)
    MR (Mid-Range rear wheel drive, LR pack with fewer cells populated)

    You can also see additional acronyms in my sig line.
    PUP (Premium Upgrades Package - interior premium trim - they never ended up making the base interior, so this is an unnecessary notation even though it is on the window sticker that came with my car)
    EAP (Enhanced Auto-Pilot - this was the initial offering of AP that includes autopark and Navigate on AP. Base AP now only includes TACC (Traffic Aware Cruise Control) and AutoSteer.
