I've been a huge #Tesla fan for a long time but when my smartphone became my car key, that is when it started to change & I truly realized how far ahead Tesla is, technologically speaking.

The way it works is I can use the Tesla app to manage many different things on my #Model3 from anywhere - see its location, interior temperature, check if it's charging and how long it has left, view the battery range, turn on heat or AC, remotely unlock or lock the doors, open the frunk/trunk, honk the horn and flash the lights.

As long as I have my smartphone with Bluetooth enabled, the Model 3 senses when I'm near the car and it will automatically unlock when I press to open the door, and it's ready to drive when I sit down.

It's different than what people are used to but once you know how to do it, it feels completely natural and that's the risk and reward that Tesla took with this design.

Windshield wipers can be set to Auto which will enable the wipers to automatically turn themselves on and off based on off it's raining or not.

The Trip Planner is great because when you type in a destination that is more distance than your current battery range, it will show you which Superchargers you need to stop at and how long you need to charge in order to get to your destination without running out of battery.

It allows music playback through Bluetooth from a smartphone but what I really love is that the Model 3 has built-in LTE connection along with music streaming via Slacker Radio which I find myself using more than Spotify Premium which I did not expect. But when you're playing music over Bluetooth from your smartphone it does display what you're playing on the touch screen and you're able to control the playback from the steering wheel and on-screen buttons in case you wondered about that.

Besides the two stalks on either side that have typical controls like windshield wipers, brights, turn signals, parking button, cruise control and autopilot: the wheel itself has two scroll buttons that can be scrolled up or down, pressed left or right, and clicked in the middle. ... My hope is that Tesla can continue to push software updates that will enable more sophisticated voice controls because that's where many of our devices are moving towards and it would be great to say things like "set cruise control to 70 mph" or "open glovebox".

Tesla claims this is still a BETA feature but if you're watching this you've probably already heard of Tesla Autopilot which, on certain roads, will automatically steer, accelerate, and brake as needed to stay within the lane at whatever speed you set. To enable Autopilot while driving, double tap down on the right stalk and if it's available it will pop a message saying to keep your hands on the wheel and be ready to take over at any time.

On roads when Autopilot isn't available or when it's limited to a certain speed, I will enable normal cruise control with one tap down of the right stalk and it maintains that speed like any other car but if the car ahead slows down, the Model 3 will brake and speed up again to maintain that speed.

Even though it's fun to enjoy the quick acceleration, there's sort of an ironic phenomenon that comes with owning a Tesla because I've found it to be a fun challenge to see if I can achieve better range efficiency than my previous drive.

In the Model 3 if you need to come to a complete stop while driving like at a red light for example, all you have to do is press the brake pedal until the "Hold" icon appears and then you can take your foot off the brake and the car will stay stopped.

When cruise control is enabled it keeps a steady speed even if you're going up or down a steep hill, there's no delay in acceleration compared to my old Pontiac.

It's attractive while being fully electric with zero emissions, it's quick yet quiet, it's fast yet safe, it's compact yet comfortable, it's fun yet relaxing, it can travel over 300 miles on a single charge yet has a nationwide network of Supercharger stations for a quick charge when needed, and most of all: the Model 3 is the future, and it's here now.

The Model 3 is like the flagship smartphone to the electric vehicle and autonomous car revolution, and once you experience it for yourself you may get a little sad and nostalgic for antiquated gasoline cars because they'll soon be forgotten in the rear view mirror of what is the #TeslaModel3

      What happens when what happens if you run out of gas? Your car stops. The car warns you long before that happens and shows you where to get a charge so it's really a no brainer.

      Why do you speak at the pace of an auctioneer... do you think you get paid by the word or something?
      Where the F does that stupid behavior come from? Did YouTard tell you you have a MAXIMUM 21 minutes and 16 seconds of uploadable video content. Slow the F down and take a gawd damn breath.

      Hello Andy!
      Can you tell me how is your red, because it's not easy so see it on the video and even on the Tesla site. I don't have any Tesla retailer around, the first one et far, far away.
      I actually have a MX5 red (soul red) which is a kind of metallic paint but 3 lairs and special metal part which give to the paint like a 3 D effect. The paint seems like deep, when you look at it under the sun and it add a lot of volume on all the curve.
      I was wondering if your paint was kind of the same, because on video it look like a normal paint, so I don't know if the 3 lairs on yours are just for a better resistance or if it is the same type of mine.
      I think for me they use a darker base, then a red with particle, then the finish very glossy and transparent red. This is what give the deep effect.
      Thanks for your answer. Because I don't like to buy something of this price without seeing it... I saw a lot of Tesla here (well maybe not so much) but they are all white or black.

      I don't know I think I would miss the gas engine just because you can hear the power from a V8 engine. There's nothing manly about a truck or car in that doesn't make any noise.

      It's my iPhone I have trouble keeping up with and walkout of the house without.its always hey Siri yelling to my Home pod ping phone so I can locate it, usually on the couch under some clothes.cant explain other than I hate to fold clothes and put them away just pile them up on the couch and love seat. I wash frequently as I don't have a lot f clothes since I retired I retired the dress shirt only wear matched track suites. Just realized other than to sit things like mail or coffee cup I can put my ironing board up permanently.

      I don't use remote or app controlled garage door openers because they are so easily hacked. I'm a tech installer for security, internet and sensors for homes and a few of my customers have had break ins through their app control and remote garages. The phone key thing is just asking for thieves.

      As a car guy I found myself rather disappointed with the model 3 people who tend to own them came from shitty cars like the Prius so they have no reference for what a well made sporty car feels like and they just parrot what they are told to think about the car.
      The acceleration didn't impress me and the handling didn't really impress either it just felt like a standard volvo.

      Powered by twin electric motors similar to what you’ll find in the production Ariya, the 227kW/680Nm “Super Leaf” sends power to all four wheels.

      That’s more power than firecracker hot hatches such as the Honda Civic Type R and more torque than a V8 Ford Mustang.

      Nissan's all-wheel-drive Leaf prototype offers insight into how future cars will drive.

      Factor in all-wheel drive, with wider wheels pushed further outside the bodywork, and the result is a car with the sort of initial straight-line acceleration normally reserved for supercars.

      Clever torque vectoring tech pinched from the Nissan GT-R helps make the most of that grunt, transforming the Leaf from a forgettable hatchback into a genuinely capable machine.

      Our brief steer on Nissan’s test track revealed rapid acceleration, determined roadholding and flat cornering in a package much more impressive than the current Leaf.

      To counter the risk of electric cars being seen as soulless appliances, the Japanese marque says its next generation of electric vehicles will be better to drive than petrol siblings, with improved straight-line performance and clever torque control made possible by electric motors.

      Nissan also worked to refine the car’s regenerative braking, making it smoother and more progressive to improve ride comfort for the occupants.

      This was a great video. A Couple of things I dislike about the car is not having a blind spot indicator on the side mirrors and not seeing the speedometer or blinkers in the front by the steering wheel where most cars have them. A head up display could fix that, Tesla should have the coolest windshield display on the market, with range info and everything else right on the windshield.
      Lastly, for a car that size I think $56k is just too much, regardless of all of the technology that comes with it (you can get an used EClass with low miles for half that money) and that also has good technology, plus it looks way better than this and the interior quality is light years ahead. When you the math you're not really saving much in gas an maintenance by having an electric car if you're paying close to $60k for a small sedan. Now if Elon can deliver on the promise of a $35k small electric sedan with some options, then that's another subject. Until then, I don't see myself paying $60k for a model 3 or $100k for a model S, that is just ridiculous.
