Tesla Model 3 is one of the most interesting all-electric sedans available in the auto market today. It is manufactured by Tesla, Inc., and Elon Musk is directly controlling the production process. Although lots of people are still waiting for Model 3 cost to reduce, it became #4 top selling cars in the USA in September. In this Model 3 review, you will find some interesting information about the vehicle, including its design, features, prices, and more.
Tesla Model 3 Exterior
The Tesla Model 3 is smaller than the Model S, but the design is obviously based on its “big brother.” Tesla Model 3 electric car does not need to have an engine or some of the traditional components in the cabin, and its battery is located under the floor, while a single Tesla Model 3 motor is found under the rear axle.
Today, you can choose something out from five Tesla Model 3 colors. While Black color is included to the base price, by choosing Silver Metallic color or Blue Metallic color you will add another $1,500 to Tesla Model 3 cost. If you wish to get your car paint in Pearl White color or Red color, the model 3 price will be $2,000 higher.
Tesla Model 3 Interior
The minimalist interior of the Model 3 sedan is unique and beautiful. There are elements made of different materials, each of which contributes to the modern yet comfy feel. Everything has been designed to offer simple and enjoyable driving, for instance, your smartphone is a key, and you can access all driver controls by using 15″ center-mounted LCD touchscreen. An all-glass super strong roof that can withstand the weight of two big elephants allows enjoying the openness.
The overall impression about Model 3 interior is satisfying. There are pretty large and comfortable adjustable front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The open-grain wood, which provides warmth and texture, and metallic trim are the only deviation from the main color of the interior. The rear seats are large enough for kids, adult passengers, or pets. There may be a few differences between 2017 Tesla Model 3 and the models produced in 2018, which mainly related to software.
