Tesla Model 3 Review: The BEST Car I’ve Ever Driven

$56,000 Tesla Model 3 Review: Best & most fun car I've ever driven! The Model 3 is Tesla's most affordable car in their current lineup and it's already the best selling all-electric car in the US and the best selling mid-size premium sedan in the US. I've been a huge Tesla fan for a long time but the moment when my smartphone became my car key, that is when it all started to change for me and I truly realized how far ahead Tesla is, technologically speaking. The way it works is I can use the Tesla app to manage many different things on my Model 3 from anywhere - see its location, interior temperature, check if it's charging and how long it has left, view the battery range, turn on heat or AC, remotely unlock or lock the doors, open the frunk/trunk, honk the horn and flash the lights. As long as I have my smartphone with Bluetooth enabled, the Model 3 senses when I'm near the car and it will automatically unlock when I press to open the door, and it's ready to drive when I sit down. It's different than what people are used to but once you know how to do it, it feels completely natural and that's the risk and reward that Tesla took with this design. Windshield wipers can be set to Auto which will enable the wipers to automatically turn themselves on and off based on off it's raining or not. The Trip Planner is great because when you type in a destination that is more distance than your current battery range, it will show you which Superchargers you need to stop at and how long you need to charge in order to get to your destination without running out of battery. It allows music playback through Bluetooth from a smartphone but what I really love is that the Model 3 has built-in LTE connection along with music streaming via Slacker Radio which I find myself using more than Spotify Premium which I did not expect. But when you're playing music over Bluetooth from your smartphone it does display what you're playing on the touch screen and you're able to control the playback from the steering wheel and on-screen buttons in case you wondered about that. Besides the two stalks on either side that have typical controls like windshield wipers, brights, turn signals, parking button, cruise control and autopilot: the wheel itself has two scroll buttons that can be scrolled up or down, pressed left or right, and clicked in the middle. ... My hope is that Tesla can continue to push software updates that will enable more sophisticated voice controls because that's where many of our devices are moving towards and it would be great to say things like "set cruise control to 70 mph" or "open glovebox". Tesla claims this is still a BETA feature but if you're watching this you've probably already heard of Tesla Autopilot which, on certain roads, will automatically steer, accelerate, and brake as needed to stay within the lane at whatever speed you set. To enable Autopilot while driving, double tap down on the right stalk and if it's available it will pop a message saying to keep your hands on the wheel and be ready to take over at any time. On roads when Autopilot isn't available or when it's limited to a certain speed, I will enable normal cruise control with one tap down of the right stalk and it maintains that speed like any other car but if the car ahead slows down, the Model 3 will brake and speed up again to maintain that speed. Even though it's fun to enjoy the quick acceleration, there's sort of an ironic phenomenon that comes with owning a Tesla because I've found it to be a fun challenge to see if I can achieve better range efficiency than my previous drive. In the Model 3 if you need to come to a complete stop while driving like at a red light for example, all you have to do is press the brake pedal until the "Hold" icon appears and then you can take your foot off the brake and the car will stay stopped. When cruise control is enabled it keeps a steady speed even if you're going up or down a steep hill, there's no delay in acceleration compared to my old Pontiac. It's attractive while being fully electric with zero emissions, it's quick yet quiet, it's fast yet safe, it's compact yet comfortable, it's fun yet relaxing, it can travel over 300 miles on a single charge yet has a nationwide network of Supercharger stations for a quick charge when needed, and most of all: the Model 3 is the future, and it's here now. The Model 3 is like the flagship smartphone to the electric vehicle and autonomous car revolution, and once you experience it for yourself you may get a little sad and nostalgic for antiquated gasoline cars because they'll soon be forgotten in the rear view mirror of what is the Tesla Model 3.

Tesla Model 3 Model Review | Edmunds

What is it like to drive the long-awaited Tesla Model 3 sedan? Director of Vehicle Testing Dan Edmunds shares his thoughts after spending a weekend in our newest long-term test vehicle. Q: How much does the 2017 Tesla Model 3 cost? A: They're not yet building the $35,000 base vehicle with the standard battery. All 2017 Tesla Model 3 sedans have the long-range battery, so they start at $44,000. For the time being, the $5,000 Premium Upgrades package is a mandatory option, so the effective base price of the car is $49,000. This test vehicle was priced at $55,000 because it also has Autopilot ($5,000) and a paint color other than black ($1,000). Delivery and taxes are extra, of course. Q: How far will the 2017 Tesla Model 3 go on a full charge? A: Model 3 sedans built with the long-range battery are officially rated to deliver 310 miles of range. The base model will be rated at 220 miles when it debuts in the near future. Q: How much power does the 2017 Tesla Model 3 have? A: The rear-mounted electric motor produces 258 horsepower. There is no transmission because the Model 3 uses direct drive to power the rear wheels. Q: How quick is the Model 3? A: We have not yet brought our Tesla Model 3 to the track. Complete test results will be coming to Edmunds soon.

TESLA Model 3 TRUE Cost of Ownership Compared with a Honda Civic & BMW 3 Series

Thinking Tesla? Use our Link: http://geni.us/TwoBitTesla The Tesla Model 3 is upon us, and it’s already being heralded by many as the most important car in decades. Cost Calculator: http://geni.us/Model3CostCalc But whether you’re one of the nearly half a million people who have already given Tesla a $1000 deposit, or someone who is wondering if it just makes financial sense, this video is for you. At $35,000 dollars, the Model 3 is the most affordable Tesla to date. And with its 220 mile range, 126 MPGe, and 0-60 time of 5.5 seconds, it’s proving to be quite the little EV that could. Very enticing indeed. But the primary question remains: What is the TRUE Cost of Owning a Tesla Model Three? While the question is simple, the answer is not. The devil is always in the details, and so we will take a look at a couple of other popular gas powered cars for comparison, and look at Total Cost of Ownership over 5 years. We will also explain the ugly truth about MPGe, and tell you what we think is a better measurement. And if you’re counting on the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit, we’ll talk about why you may not even qualify for it. Lastly, we will provide you with some cost calculators to help you reach an educated conclusion, based on your specific situation, because where you live & how you drive, really does affect your bottom line. ***** Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/twobitdavinci We Love VideoBlocks.

Why I prefer the Tesla Model 3 over the S

A video that compares the features between the Tesla Model S and the Tesla Model 3 from a perspective of a first-time Tesla Model 3 owner and why the Model 3 ultimately wins out over the Model S 100D. If you disagree with me and prefer the S/X over the 3 and want free supercharging, here’s a link that will get you that: https://ts.la/josh95038

This is the big one. Or, rather, the small one: the Tesla Model 3, Tesla’s smallest car, is also its most important. Subscribe now: http://smarturl.it/autocar

Tasked with taking the Californian company into uncharted territory when it comes to sales volume, this Audi/BMW/Mercedes-rivalling sedan is based on a new architecture, has a 300+ mile range and an affordable price - from $35,000 in the US, before options (of which the big battery is one).

We head, then, to California to try it out, on roads that represent the narrower, more interesting Tarmac than America’s wide highways. Places where cars like the BMW 3-Series are design to excel. How does the Model 3 shape up against the world’s best executive cars?
