The Tesla Model 3 is an all-electric four-door sedan manufactured and sold by Tesla, Inc. As of today it's the most affordable car in the Tesla model range. The production of the Model 3 began in mid-2017 and right now Tesla is ramping it up. The Tesla Model 3 is the first vehicle built on Tesla’s third-generation platform. It aims to reduce the entry price for electric vehicles while not making any compromise on range and performance.
Safety is the most important part of the overall Model 3 design. The metal structure is a combination of aluminum and steel, for maximum strength in every area. In a roof-crush test, Model 3 resisted four times its own mass, even with an all-glass roof: that’s the same weight as two full-grown African elephants.
Tesla’s all-electric powertrain delivers unparalleled performance in all weather conditions — with dual motor all-wheel drive, instant traction and torque control and ludicrous acceleration.
Model 3 can get you anywhere you want to go — with industry-leading range and convenient charging options, all over the world. Model 3 charges up to 80% in 40 minutes on a Tesla Supercharger.
Autopilot advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist you with the most burdensome parts of driving. Model 3 comes standard with advanced hardware capable of providing Enhanced Autopilot features today, and full self-driving capabilities in the future.
The inside of the Model 3 is unlike any other car. You can use your smartphone as a key, and access all driver controls in the central 15-inch touchscreen. The all-glass roof extends from front to back, creating a sense of openness from every seat.
For all of its futuristic ambitions, the Model 3 is a relatively conventional-looking four-door sedan. It incorporates many design elements from the more expensive Model S, making it immediately recognizable as a Tesla, but it’s significantly taller and less sporty looking than its low-slung, sleek-sedan sibling.
Model 3 is designed to improve over time with regular software updates, introducing new features, functionality, and performance.
Tesla Model 3 Standard version is available only as an “off-the-menu” item. Autopilot is not included into the price.
The car has Standard Interior, which includes:
- Tinted glass roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection
- Auto dimming, power folding, heated side mirrors
- Music and media over Bluetooth
- Custom driver profiles
- Manual seat and steering adjustment
- Cloth seat and base trim
- Basic audio
- Standard maps and navigation
- Center console with storage and 4 USB ports
The vehicle is identical to the more expensive Standard Range Plus version except that Tesla has software-locked the battery pack at 90% of its capacity and disabled some features like onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization, and heated seats.
