Tesla’s hyped Model 3 is finally here and we have a full review:
We’re finally getting a chance to try out the 2018 Tesla Model 3, the long-awaited solution to Tesla’s biggest problem: It sells cars that most people can’t afford. The Model 3 is thus poised to shift Tesla down from hallowed, aspirational startup to legitimate, skeptic-free corporate success.
That’s a lot to demand from a single, $35,000 car. While my first impressions behind the wheel of the Model 3 made it clear the car was going to be good, there’s one problem already: The car you’re looking at actually costs $56,500. That mean it’s no longer a competitor of the $37,495 Chevrolet Bolt EV and instead has been elevated up into the range of a nicely equipped BMW 3 Series — or even a base 530e.
Spoiler alert: it’s great, but it isn’t perfect.
