Tesla Model 3 Specifications and Review



Tesla Model 3 Specifications and Review

The Tesla Model 3 was manufactured using Tesla’s third-generation platform. The model was built to cut down on the entry price for electric vehicles, this it did without making any compromise on the range and performance of the vehicle. We will take a look at the Model 3 and what it offers.

The interior of the Model 3 is made up of high-quality materials and is well designed. The seats are comfortable, with plenty of room for taller drivers. When you’re sitting in the driver’s seat, you’ll find that there’s an easy-to-use dashboard with a large touchscreen display in front of you. The screen shows your speed, directions from Google Maps, battery life, and more. On top of those features, it can also be used to stream music over Bluetooth or play DVDs for the rear passengers (if they’d like).

The large windshield gives drivers an excellent view while driving; if there’s any obstruction at all to visibility such as snowfall you’ll know it immediately because it happens right in front of you. This also means that when taking long road trips during winter months (or anywhere else), drivers should keep an eye on weather conditions so they don’t end up getting stuck out there without proper gear on hand such as blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothes, etc.

Tesla Model 3 Exterior

When you first look at the exterior of the Tesla Model 3, it’s impossible not to notice two things: the front and rear bumpers are made out of carbon fiber. The chrome grille is a nice touch as well, and so are the LED lights in both front and back. Speaking of rear lights, they’re also made from LEDs too but there’s more here than meets the eye. The rear diffuser is formed by a deep body crease that runs across its length. It doesn’t just look awesome; it serves an aerodynamic function for improved downforce at high speeds.

Tesla Model 3 Wheels

Model 3 wheels come in a range of sizes, from19 inches up to 28 inches. The standard wheel size is 19 inches, but you can opt for 20, 21, or 22-inch wheels instead. All the models except the standard-range variant have aerodynamics and performance wheels that are 21 inches or larger (the long-range model comes with 21-inch alloys).

These are paired with low rolling resistance tires developed specifically for Tesla vehicles. For any other Model 3 buyers who want to trade up their stock wheels, there will be an option at each trim level to upgrade their alloys with aerodynamics and performance upgrades costing $1,500 per set (for a total of $3k plus installation costs if you don’t do it yourself).

Tesla Model 3 Performance

One of the most popular features of the Tesla Model 3 is its performance. Its 0-60mph acceleration time is in the ballpark of 5.6 seconds, which puts it on par with many sports cars in its price range. Model 3 comes with a top speed of 130mph. The Model 3’s impressive range is a result of an energy storage system composed mostly of lithium-ion batteries that produce 75kWh worth of power each sizing equivalent to about 7 iPhone XS Maxes. If you have access to a supercharger station, then you can charge up your Tesla Model 3 fully within 30 minutes at maximum power.

Tesla Model 3 Specifications and Price

The Tesla Model 3 is a very viable car. The car has a base price of $35,000 and comes with 220 miles of range per full charge. The Model 3 can go from 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest accelerating production cars ever made. It has been designed to be able to drive itself on highways, and its windshield is made of glass that collects solar energy while driving at highway speeds on sunny days so that you can store power in the battery pack or sell it back to power companies like Tesla’s partner SolarCity or even use it yourself by storing it in your home’s battery pack (if you have one).

The Tesla Model 3 is also a very safe car thanks to its Autopilot system which uses cameras and radar sensors mounted on top of its roof as well as ultrasonic acoustic location equipment located on each corner of its front bumper along with 12 ultrasonic acoustic location sensors under each wheel well so that this vehicle can “see” what’s around itself no matter where it goes whether there are other vehicles nearby or not even those traveling faster than yours’ speed limit.

In Conclusion

With an average range of 220 miles, these cars are ideal for city driving and commuting. If you want something that’s well-suited to long trips as well as daily use. Then the Tesla Model 3 is the right choice for you. The Tesla Model 3 offers goodbye for money considering its cost per mile as compared to other electric cars on the market.
