The Tesla Model 3 is a luxury four-door electric saloon. Its rear-wheel drive system has two independent motors which digitally control torque to the front and rear axle. The beauty of the system is that the Model 3 can be propelled on either motor so the car will never get stuck.
Inside the minimalist Model 3, you can use your smartphone as a key and access all driver controls in the large, 15-inch central touchscreen. The forward-designed instrument panel provides even more legroom in the front while the premium centre console has plenty of covered storage as well as four USB ports and two docks for charging smartphones. Look up and the all-glass roof extends from the front to the back, creating a sense of airiness from every seat.
With a range of 386 km and an on-board charger (7.6 kW at 32 A), the Tesla Model 3 is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and if the electronic accelerator pedal is depressed long enough, top speed is an astounding 260 km/h – faster than many sports cars and performance hatchbacks and saloons.
Our Tesla Model 3 comes 12-way power-adjustable heated front seats, upgraded audio with music and media over Bluetooth, premium seat material and trim in black, 18-inch Aero wheels and park assist with reversing camera and a whole slew of safety features including knee, front, side and curtain airbags, autopilot with Traffic-Aware Cruise Control, Autosteer and Auto Lane Change and Collision avoidance assist.
