      Why bother? Lot of eccentric annoyances of a Tesla, not the type of acceleration you'd expect from an electric motor, completely dependent on Tesla for all future servicing. That thing is an electric Corolla, 50 grand can get you a brand new 340i.

      i think its a gimmick and other car manufacturers will pass them in sales and quality very shortly. A base model 3 with no goodies and black paint is $49k, what a joke.

      You gotta spend $2000 if you want it in white. Teslas are the hipster mobile.
      I'll stick with petrol

      There is no way I would scroll through touch screen windows just to adjust the mirror. I would roll down the window and do it. The same goes for the vents. It looks like a blast to drive though.

      Their Camaro video is the best, because no one talks. It’s awesome because it feels like you’re in on the test drive.

      quote, "People are already complaining about steering in Porsches and everyone going electric power-assist. This is a Tesla. Everything is electric."

      My 2010 Tesla Roadster doesn't even have power steering. It's 100% mechanical.

      quote, "This is a greenhouse. There's so much glass here… This is the perfect leaf-peeping car (other than a convertible)."

      And I get to feel smug again, because the Roadster is a convertible. (Well, it has a targa top I mean.)

      On the other hand, I can't use Tesla Supercharger stations, and that's a real drag.

      Jessy Mustard - So, you don’t think there’ll be advancements in technology in 20-30 years? I think the interior styling should be less cheap looking, but it’s a good car in terms of technology.

      Absolutely, if there had been a police officer in a car watching, then the driver would likely have been fined.
      If the autopilot had been in use, then the Tesla would had stopped completely.

      Model 3 is not an economy car. It's a sporty sedan like a BMW 3 series.

      The steering comes alive at high cornering loads near the limits. It has incredibly good steering feedback at high loads on a race track. It uses a virtual steering axis front suspension like Audi S4, etc.

      The energy efficiency tires are NOT performance tires. The 20 inch Michelin Pilot Sport 4S on the Model 3 Performance with Performance Upgrade option are excellent for performance driving.

      4:10 You know it's really freaking hot in Florida right now. I don't have a sunroof, I have dark tinted heat repelling windows and it still feels like it's not enough. I think the Model 3 would be an issue with no retractable sunshade for the ceiling.

      It is a fine "2nd car". The terrible reliability, quality, after sale service & the fact Tesla is ran like a circus by a narcissist & arrogant CEO would make me stay far away from Tesla as it is. Perhaps once GM, VW or Toyota buys them out I could see myself in one, but not now.

      Drove one on Friday. Loved the power, and technology in it. The big screen did not bother me as much as I though it would... Though some controls SHOULD be on buttons and switches not on the screen. Blind spot warning indicators should be in the mirrors not on the screen... Your looking in the mirror to do a lane change, not the screen.
      Car was very quiet.....more so than most of the videos from inside the car make it seem. Stereo was Amazing..
      Panoramic roof is cool but would be a nightmare where I live.. I would honestly have to cover it over somehow.
      Wish the car was a lift back instead of a sedan.
      And the back seat was surprisingly pretty terrible.. low seat height or high floor or both. I'm 5'8'' and felt like my knees were way to high and bent.
      Also drove a Chevy Bolt EV. Also was very nice. Had regular car controls, proper blind spot monitoring, better back seats, more usable cargo space, lacked the auto drive, decent power but not Tesla power. Rode more firmly, little less comfortable in the front seats but not bad. Liked the Regen paddle on the steering wheel a lot. Definitely let's you easily engage with the car more easily.
      If the Chevy had Tesla's Supercharging network I would likely choose that car over the Tesla.. sticker was $39k for an LT model. They had one on the lot.
      You said your cost to drive was $13 for 300 miles, that's $.04 per mile. My gas car older model Prius is $.07 per mile. When you factor gas, oil changes, air filter and transmission fluid changes.
      Not enough of a savings to justify the car for me, and not enough range or ease or speed of recharging for my needs for now
      Loved the Tesla and the Bolt both.. they we're both awesome cars, if my needs ever change and the charging Network gets better.. I will be very happy when I can own one myself.

      Seems like that would be pretty easy. The Bolt makes enough power to move a decent sized car.. could easily transplant the power train to another vehicle.. a mid sized CUV for example.
      Overall it was an impressive car.. not as sexy looking but felt like a normal car to me. The Tesla was Fast and beautiful, and felt luxurious..
      But the back seat sucked... Bad enough for me to think .. yuck.. I would not want to spend 15 min back here..

      I have to agree, the bolt provides better gas car to ev transition in terms of interior and practicality. I'm kind of hopping GM will make something more fancy, hopefully bit bigger suv. It would definitely help competition.
