Tesla Model 3 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Tesla Model 3 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Model 3 zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Model 3 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

Tesla is still delivering outstanding performance and top-notch technology. Following the first two Teslas, the Model X and Model S, is the 2017 Model 3, a new attractive car that seeks to offer similar features and flawless functionality, all at a much more affordable price. The Model S and Model X were mostly aspirational, for they were sold at exorbitant prices.
The Tesla Model 3 is estimated to start at $35,000. This is, however, before subjection to government incentives. To compare how affordable it is, the Model S 60 starts at about $70,000.

The Model 3 features two braking systems: low and normal. The normal is as aggressive as the BMW i3’s regen. It allows for one-pedal driving but unlike in the i3, it doesn’t bring the 3 to a full halt. Letting off the brake allows the car to creep of hold based on the preferred configuration. The low regen setting brings about a traditional feel when the creep is turned on. The alternative will have you driving a car from the future.

30 minutes’ worth of charging using Tesla’s Supercharger charging network adds 137 miles of range to the Model 3. In addition, the car can absorb as much as 37 miles per hour when charged with the recommended NEMA 14-50 cord adapter or the higher capacity Level 2 40-amp home charger. This is of course, when it’s backed by a 50-amp, 240-volt electrical service.

Similar to the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4, the Tesla Model 3 measures 72.8 inches wide, 184.8 inches long and 56.8 inches high. There are about 15 cubic feet of cargo space at the back, making it a typical entry-level luxury car when it comes to offering luggage space.

The Model 3 comes in two versions: the base model and the upgraded long-range model. The former starts at $35,000 and is rated at 220 miles in range. It, however, isn’t available until sometime in 2018. The latter is the only 3 available for 2017 and gets from 0 to 60mph in 5.1 seconds. It’s rated at 310 miles and can top out at 140mph. At its initial launch, the upgraded long-range version will feature extra properties that may raise the price to $50,000.

The Model 3 features a design similar to that of the Models S and X. The interior has a 15-inch touchscreen display at the center console. All functions are monitored and controlled from here as there is no presence of a traditional instrument cluster. The 3 doesn’t harbor lots of high-performance features, but to any automotive enthusiast, it definitely fills that gap. There’s, however, room for improvement as its grip and understeer are a bit dramatic. Also, the steering wheel could be modified to provide more information to the driver, especially about grip levels at the front wheels.

The Tesla Model 3 is the only quick and affordable EV on the market today. The user interface makes it a one-of-a-kind. It’s also quite fun to drive as it offers responsive acceleration and a quiet ride. However, the user interface does feature some serious flaws, and for anyone wishing to own this car, it is advisable to first borrow or lease one in order to familiarize yourself with its systems.
