Testing the Tesla Model 3, and Correcting the Early Reviews
Tesla delivered over 30 Model 3s to customers, and we got a chance to review the most important car of this century (or as it is said). The debut of Model 3 leads to three big questions, these are:
- Is it Tesla? Does it feel similar to Model S?
- How alienating it will feel as compared to gas powered car at this price?
- Last but not least, is it fast?
This is not time for full reviews. But there are a few things we can talk about. It has a great torque, and satisfactory. It will take more miles to make people buy it, but they are rady for the change.
Subtle touches in interior, with hidden air conditioning vents, and spacious look, the minimalistic approach pulls off with glass roof. The non-traditional elements are a little disconnecting but they will be a part of the future range. The gauge cluster is a customizable, and can be nerdy, but that is to be excepted.
Driving the Car
Once again, the reviews are not based on a prolonged driving experiencing, but just a few minutes behind the steering wheel. This car feels safer and more intuitive than other electric and hybrid cars in competition.
Tesla is trying to make its footmark in a market that it convincingly avoided for years. With the base price of $40,000, and options exceeding to $60,000, Tesla is going to compete the Japanese who have been dominating this sector for years.
There are some concerns about the build quality of new Model 3. But with a range of 200 miles, and price tag of 40k for an all-electric drive, Tesla is bound to make history. This is too early to speculate anything but we are interesting to see how this move will affect the market.
