Simply put, this car is great. 315 miles all electric and dual motor. Starting at $39k. So let’s go. Yet the version I drove was starting at 56,990.
According to Tesla:
The MSRP starts at $39,990! The car can get up to 150 city / 133 highway. All with a range of 250 to 353 miles all electric! As this was the Performance folks. It has a range of 315 miles. But it’s so strong you can beat anything easily on the road. A friend said it’s like a toy rocket.
Furthermore, we know from test after test this is the most important part of the overall Model 3 design. Because the metal structure is a combination of aluminum and steel. For this maximum strength in then created in every area.
Because in a roof-crush test, Model 3 resisted four times its own mass. That’s even with an all-glass roof. I mean and Tesla said: that’s the same weight as two full-grown African elephants.
Speed. No Question!
So this Model 3 came with the dual motor all-wheel drive. For that’s 20” Überturbine Wheels and Performance Brakes and lowered suspension for total control. Now forget today was beautiful. This puppy pushes muster even in all weather conditions. And a carbon fiber spoiler improves stability at high speeds. Now this is allowing Model 3 to accelerate from 0-60 mph*. So I mean in as little as 3.1 seconds. What the???￼
Tesla All-Wheel Drive
This specific version had two independent motors for improved redundancy. So each with only one moving part. All for minimal maintenance and maximum durability. Unlike traditional all-wheel drive systems, they digitally control torque to the front and rear wheel. This is for far better handling and traction control.
However I definitely noticed the difference in shocks on a Model 3 versus a Model S or X. So be advised. Nothing wrong but just expect to ride like a 3 series car with the tech, speed, handling and overall wild vibe. It’s truly like no other.
This autopilot was not tested however!!
Autopilot’s advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist you with the most burdensome parts of driving. So it flashed many times in slower roads a 360 signal like satellite but I knew that wasn’t it. For it included full autopilot. I will have to go back and try to update post. ￼
So the inside of Model 3 is unlike any other car. You can use your smartphone as a key. I asked them four times I couldn’t conceptualize it. Wild!! For access all driver controls in the central 15-inch touchscreen. Because that OG all-glass roof extends from front to back. A SPLIT in middle but seriously creating a sense of openness from every seat.
