1. Tesla Model 3 specs

As it’s always the case with new cars, the most fascinating thing about the latest Tesla vehicle is its technical features. On the outside, the Tesla Model 3 reminds you of a few of the newest popular coupes, like the BMW 4-Series or Mazda 3. While it’s a very attractive vehicle on the outside, the true appeal of the new Tesla is, of course, its performance.

Tesla Model 3

It’s not a secret to anyone that the Tesla Model 3 motor is a fully electric one, but it’s not uncommon for people who have never driven an electric car before to worry about its performance. We can assure you that it’s not the case with Model 3, as up to this date Tesla has never produced a slow and underperforming car, so it surely won’t happen with the latest one. The new car goes from 0 to 100km/h in under 6 seconds.

The Tesla Model 3 will run on an EPA-rated powertrain that has a minimum range of 346 km. When charged at Tesla’s official Supercharger station, the new model can get to 80% charge in under 30 minutes, and the number of Supercharger points will continue to grow. Of course, you can always charge your Model 3 the regular way.

2. Tesla Model 3 interior

If you sit behind the wheel of the Model 3 for the first time, you may be surprised by how minimalistic the interior of the car looks. There are no usual controls – everything happens on a single large touchscreen on the front panel beside the wheel. You can not only control your ride with the help of the panel, but also see the driving stats, access maps, and media, and adjust climate control.

The rest of the interior is incredibly sleek and refined, just like the exterior of the Tesla Model 3. There are ergonomic seats, practical interior materials in a muted palette, and everything else you expect to see in a high-end model like the brand new Tesla. The car will be able to seat up to 5 passengers, which is just enough for most buyers.

3. Tesla energy news

Even though the Tesla Model 3 is not the first fully electric car to be widely released in the international automotive market, it generated the biggest buzz. The reason for that is the way the new Tesla is already changing the solar power industry, and how it’s about to change even more.

By making the Model 3 affordable for many categories of buyers, Tesla makes the first and most important step on the way to energy independence: with the developing solar technology and the growing popularity of fully electric cars, people will be able to manage their own energy needs.

4. Tesla Model 3 price

You’ve heard a lot about the affordability of the latest Tesla model, but how much exactly is it going to cost? Well, the base price for the Tesla Model 3 is $35,000. This price will give you a Model 3 with a bare minimum of options, so if you want to make your vehicle higher performing or add some convenience or style features, be prepared to pay for extras.
