Tesla Model 3 Price and Reviews

The tesla model 3 is in a class by itself. It's a quick electric car, comfortable and in this review we will see the cheap one with excessive price.

Tesla's Model 3 performance and price Is it possible to review and today we have the Model 3 Interior, autonomy and how it fares as a car. 

And without getting pulled into the electric car company's gravitational hype vortex. forget flamethrowers rockets and Joe Rogan.

Tesla Model 3 Interior

The Tesla Model 3 brakes feel completely natural which is a stellar accomplishment for an electric car, and if you don't like the acceleration and regenerative braking intensity, vehicle creep behavior or steering efforts simply change them.

Regarding Tesla Model 3 Interior steering settings, with such a quick ratio the light efforts of comfort mode make it hard to steer with accuracy.

So don't use them. One last driving observation, there's a blind spot over the right shoulder.

Surely technology has a solution for that. Why yes, it does With the $5,000 enhanced autopilot package the Tesla Model 3 can steer, accelerate, brake, and automatically change lanes for you.

The Tesla Model 3 door handles don't extend like the Model S's but they do flip out GTR style. Inside if not using your phone place the key card behind the cupholders to enable drive mode.

Cramming all vehicle settings infotainment controls and the traditional gauge cluster readout into a central 15-inch touchscreen sounds like a one-way ticket to failure town, but no, it works great. Tesla Model 3 has done a brilliant job creating a clear, attractive, instantly navigable interface.

okay, here's a quick rundown of the Model 3's abilities and quirks. Over-the-air software updates expand its capabilities over time, for example, Tesla Model 3 updated the anti-lock braking tuning yielding a notable reduction in stopping distances.

Front seats of Tesla Model 3 are comfortably shaped, supportive and include adjustable lumbar support. The armrests are well-positioned and soft.

Rear passenger space is fine for my average five-foot ten-inch body but the seatbacks could use more recline.

Wear marks near the electronic door release, this bunching door seal, and chrome exterior door trim that didn't quite line up.

Tesla's screen-based vent controls are much better than Porsche, and the Tesla app offers handy information about your vehicle.

Tesla Model 3 Performance

Acceleration is instantaneous, relentless, and intoxicating. Need to blast pass yet another Camry? Sure thing.

Want to merge authoritatively with freeway traffic? Done. Want to dazzle your three-year-old with the majesty of electric torque? Can do.

Press the accelerator and there's no downshift or engine related delay. You just go. Add lateral G's and the Model 3 shines even brighter.

The Model 3 is the kind of car that rewards precision and a willingness to probe the limits. With it's well tuned multi-link suspension and weighty battery pack placed low in the chassis the smallest of Tesla's is a grade-a badass in the corners.

If you've dismissed electric cars as joy crushing sadness goblins you've clearly never driven a Model 3.

Yeah there's no emotional engine noise, but consider this, without a dramatic internal combustion soundtrack the Model 3 can still create great reactions.

Except as of when we write this article Tesla isn't building any of those the versions you can get are the mid-range rear-wheel drive.

The long-range dual motor all-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive performance model like our tester that adds a lowered suspension a higher top speed, 20-inch wheels, performance brakes and carbon fiber bits to the equation.

Right now it's incredibly cool tech that operates with more precision than some uober drivers, but the system requires constant attention. This is not autonomous driving though Tesla promises that will come later.

That said the real-time display makes autopilot far more engaging than other semi autonomous systems. My big complaint is the effort required to overpower the autonomy.

Instead you have to force your way through the autonomy, which then abruptly deactivates the system. During critical moments that can be disconcerting. Autonomy aside the Model 3 is a wellspring of unexpected but logical conclusions.

Tesla Model 3 Charging

Charging your Model 3 with a standard household outlet is possible but dumb, gaining only one to two miles of range per hour.

Different car makers use different cathode chemistries for lithium-ion batteries, Tesla uses NCA chemistry, or Nickel, Cobalt, and Aluminium (LiNiCoAlO2).

They use this particular chemistry because it offers great energy density, long cycle life, and great charge performance.

This makes Tesla’s batteries the absolute top of the line in the EV world. They weigh less, last longer, and power the performance of things like Ludicrous mode.

Most other EV manufacturers have opted to use NMC or Nickel Manganese Cobalt, which has slightly lower energy density but is regarded as a safer battery.

More on all of this later. Tesla’s Batteries have gone through 3 stages: Stage 1 was from 2009-2012 found in the Roadster and Model S.

Stage 2 start from 2016-2018 tell they powered the Model S Gen II, and the Model X. Stage 3 starts with the Model 3 in 2018.

A full charge would literally take this 240-volt charger speeds things up adding roughly 14-miles per hour. Charged for overnights at home that's fine, but on the go one of Tesla's nearly 1,400 supercharger stations is the play.

During our test we surged from 65- to more than 270-miles of range in about an hour. Just keep in mind crowded stations mean extra wait time, and unlike Model S and Model X owners Model 3 owners have to pay it a super charge. In our case 200- miles of range cost a modest $14.04.

Tesla Model 3 Price

The Model 3 is the smallest and cheapest car in Tesla's all-electric lineup. It seats give, has a maximum 310-mile range, and a theoretical starting price of $36,000 including destination charges.

Interestingly any color besides black will cost between $1,500 and $2,500 dollars.

A basic Model 3 Price includes eight airbags, automatic emergency braking, Wi-Fi, an LTE Internet connectivity, dual zone climate control, rear wheel drive, and 220 miles of electric range all for a base price around $36,000.

All of those prices include destination charges, but exclude the federal government $7,500 tax credit. A tax credit that may not exist or will likely be greatly reduced by the time your Model 3 is actually built.

Some folks might compare the Model 3 to the roomier Jaguar I-Pace, but starting at $70,000 it's much pricier.

Cheaper alternatives include the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona EV and Nissan Leaf, but none of those matched the Tesla's technical anesthetic cool points.

The BMW i3 occupies a vaguely similar price spectrum, but it's no match for the Model 3's range and speed.

Truth be told Model 3 is in a class by itself. It's stupid quick, aggressively innovative, comfortable for its size, and assuming they ever build the cheap one, excessively priced. I for one welcome our new electric car overlords.
