I'm still waiting for the Model 3 to be made available in a right hand drive edition, but whilst I wait, I was wondering.
Does anybody here have the roof racks that Tesla sold for the M3? And if so, can you give an indication of the range hit they give, preferably with a couple of bicycles loaded up there? This is the only significant concern I have about the Model 3: how much range I can expect to get if I need to load my bike(s) onto the roof rather than loading it internally. The approximate percentage hit will determine whether I can get away with the standard range, or if I need to go for the medium/long range model for my expected needs (the Supercharger network will be fine for a roughly 250km range vehicle, which is a roughly 30% drop in range from the standard model; if the drop is more than 30%, I'm in trouble and will need a longer range vehicle.)
