MSRP 41190 USDNeoscore 57%NEX score 88%

Product Overview

Tesla Model 3 is mid-size electric sedan in production from 2017 to 2020. It is powered by electric motors from 204hp to 325hp aided by batteries from 50kWh to 80kWh.
Engineers at Tesla clearly made a great effort in aerodynamics, with a class-leading 0.23 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Tesla Model 3 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
Deigned to be a mass-market electric vehicle, Model 3 combines performance, range, safety, and technology, including Tesla's advanced autopilot systems. It is currently Tesla's most popular model.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is set to go on sale in the UK later this year. The Model 3 line-up begins with the £38,900 Standard Range Plus. The Long Range variant adds a second motor and starts at £47,900. But it's the £56,900 Model 3 Performance we're driving here, complete with sporty suspension rates, 75kWh battery and twin motors.

Pros
  • Sleek, sporty styling
  • Superb suspension
Cons
  • Not the most practical

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is the smallest, most affordable car in the American manufacturer’s range of EVs. It was an Auto Express 2020 Car of The Year award winner. Built to take on the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class, but Tesla also has one eye on the arrival of the BMW i4, as well as upstart executive EVs from the likes of Polestar.

Pros
  • Fastest electric car on the market
  • Powerful electric motors
  • Impressive range
Cons
  • No 30-day subscription to Tesla’s connected services

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Model 3 was named Auto Express Car of the Year two years ago. For 2021, it's out with shiny chrome on the outside, and in with cool satin black trim. Inside the minimalist look and spacious interior remain, but piano black surfaces have been replaced by matte black trim, the centre console now gets a big storage box with a sliding lid.

Pros
  • Bigger and more fun to drive
  • Excellent range
Cons
  • More expensive than the Performance model

Sentiment Score 89%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Model 3 comes in limited flavours: standard and long range – with a choice of rear or all-wheel drive – plus this Performance version with only the 4x4 option. Performance drops the ride height slightly and tweaks the motors to up the power from the 75kWh battery to around 450bhp. The range jumps up to a claimed 310 miles (and we did our best to dent that, but it appears pretty realistic) While you get a few cosmetic boosts, including the cute, carbon-fibre rear spoiler, this model doesn't come cheap – but then neither do its rivals.

Pros
  • Fastest electric car in the world
  • Fun to drive
Cons
  • No head-up display
  • Limited range

Sentiment Score 83%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Model 3 has possibly the smoothest integration of a one pedal driving system of any EV on sale. A 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds really doesn't do the Model 3 justice. At any speed, the lightning fast throttle response and instantaneous torque gives proper hyper hatch eagerness. It's also wonderfully easy to drive at low speeds.

Pros
  • Impressive range
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Excellent range
Cons
  • Lack of combustion engine
  • Chunky steering wheel

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is a winner – it has an impressive real-world battery range, a roomy and airy cabin, drives beautifully in all versions, and offers driver-assistance tech that largely works well in the UK. Despite nearly all controls being accessed via the central touchscreen, it all works well – as if the car's designers are as well versed in infotainment operating systems as they are in vehicle dynamics. It's not quite perfect – no car is – and there will be some who would bemoan the lack of SUV-style practicalities, while the fastback shape hints at a more useful hatchback the car didn't receive. There are already some murmurings about less-than optimum customer service when things go wrong, so a word to the wise if you're thinking of moving across a more established player.

Pros
  • Impressive battery range
  • Supercharger network
Cons
  • No SUV-style practicality
  • Limited interior options

Reviewers from carwow have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 electric car does away with anything so vulgar as a grille on its bumper. Instead, there's little more than a slim intake, a pair of fog lights and a number plate at the front. Performance models lose out on a few miles of range, being able to cover 352 miles between chargers, but they're much faster. Accelerating from 0-60mph takes as little as 3.1 seconds compared with the 4.2 seconds of the Long Range version and the Standard Plus' 5.3 seconds.

Pros
  • Fantastic range
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive range
Cons
  • Expensive compared to rivals
