The Tesla Model 3 is a small luxury sedan that offers a stylish design and impressive performance. Under the leadership of Elon Musk, Tesla has grown to become one of the top luxury-car manufacturers in the nation. This company focuses exclusively on producing SUVs and sports sedans with electric powertrains, and it’s rolled out hits like the Model S and Model X.
2017 to Present: Tesla Model 3
Tesla’s Model 3 was introduced for the 2017 model year. Its compact dimensions make this electric car an agile companion on crowded city streets.
The Model 3 provides seating for five passengers. It’s available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Electric cars like the Nissan Leaf are known for having a pod-like exterior design, but the Model 3 breaks this mold with its sleek, conventionally handsome sheet metal. Its bulging hood gives this sports sedan an athletic appearance, while its flowing roofline endows it with the stylish profile of a coupe. Overall, the Model 3’s look is both powerful and modern.
The design cues within this Tesla’s cabin are clean and lean. Almost all of the car’s features are governed by a tablet-like touchscreen, and this creates a noticeable absence of buttons and knobs on the center console. This pared-down approach to cabin design creates an environment that’s both elegant and soothing.
The Model 3 offers sporty handling, and each electric motor in its lineup delivers crisp acceleration. The car’s regenerative braking has a natural feel that inspires confidence. Whether it’s cruising down the highway or tackling a winding mountain road, the Model 3 stands as one of the most entertaining cars in the luxury segment. Early models provide a net output of up to 450 horsepower and a driving range of up to 310 miles.
Like other Teslas, the Model 3 was introduced with an impressive range of standard features. The list includes automatic headlights, front and rear parking sensors, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a 15-inch touchscreen, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot. This Tesla also shines when it comes to driver-assist features. All models provide forward collision mitigation, a blind-spot warning system and a warning system that lets you know if the car has wandered out of its lane.
Commonly available options on the Model 3 include a panoramic glass roof, LED fog lights, power-adjustable front seats and a steering wheel with a power-adjustable column. An Enhanced Autopilot package can add features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and a self-parking system.
For 2018, the Model 3 expanded its range of batteries. It also became available with all-wheel drive, after having been offered solely with rear-wheel drive during its first year of production.
Though it’s an electric car, the Model 3 has enough driving range to compete credibly with gas-powered rivals. It’s no surprise, then, that Model 3s are usually cross-shopped against small gas-powered luxury cars like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Sleek design and rewarding performance help the Model 3 distance itself from the pack.
