No one took electric cars seriously until Tesla decided to make one. Tesla Model 3 has practically no competitors and is one of the most affordable electric cars out there. No need for power train, converter, or a muffler. It does not run on gas so it requires practically no maintenance. Along with Model S, Model 3 is one the Tesla’s newest cars that will cost you $35,000.
Here are the top 5 amazing features of the Tesla Model 3.
1. It has a 5-star safety rating
The metal structure of Tesla Model 3 is strong and reliable as it is made from a combination of
2. It goes from 0 to 60mph in just 3.2 seconds
Due to it’s 20″ performance wheels, you can handle the car at speeds at which other cars would just fall apart. It has Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, powerful brakes and lowered suspension that makes Tesla Model 3 one of the best electric cars on the planet. A low center of gravity might hurt the acceleration a bit but it makes handling much safer at high speeds. Hence, even when the car goes from 0 to 60mph in just 3.2 seconds, you are safe and in total control of the vehicle.
3. It has carbon fiber spoilers(Inverted wings)
It also has carbon fiber spoilers that help your car stay close to the ground and fight off the aerodynamic lift. The main function of these spoilers is to “spoil” the unfavorable air movement that your car experiences as it moves in the forward direction. You probably would know that wings of an aircraft generate life and push it upwards in the air. Conversely, spoilers are inverted wings that push the car down towards the ground.
4. Recharge the car battery in just 15 minutes
You can save a ton of money by charging your Tesla Model 3 at your home instead of an ICE. It gets fully charged within 15 minutes and you can drive up to 310 miles(500 km) with a single charge. However, charging at an ICE is a bit expensive and is nearly as costly as gas. Tesla has 13,000 Superchargers worldwide and they open six new locations each week, so you can use your car for long distance travel as well.
5. It runs on autopilot
With Tesla’s new autopilot feature your car can now steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane. Your car can change lanes with the help of the navigator and can also go from on-ramp to off-ramp without the need for manual interference.
Secondly, you can also retrieve your Tesla Model 3 out of the garage with the help of its a mobile app. You don’t even need to enter the garage, your car will ready and waiting for you each morning in front of your house.
Moreover, we all know how difficult it is to park in a tiny parking space. Especially, when you have to also maintain equal distance from other cars so that they can move out without any obstruction. Tesla’s Autopark feature does everything by itself with a single touch.
Is it cheaper to own a Tesla than a regular car?
There is no one answer to this question as it depends on where you do the charging. The rate of electricity varies from city to city. For instance, electricity is very expensive in a place like Hawaii. So, owning a Tesla Model 3 with the intention of saving money is not such a great idea for Hawaiians. But if you are nature buff who is willing to charge the car at your home, Tesla might be the right car for.
