Tesla Model 3

2018
Tesla Model 3 2018 sedan Trim Shown: 2018 Long Range sedan RWD Direct
The latest model to join Tesla's portfolio is the Model 3 sedan, positioned as the most affordable car in the line. With prices starting at $35,000, the Model 3 with the 60-kWh battery promises an EPA-rated 215-mile range, swift acceleration, and a full suite of standard advanced safety features. There is also a higher-performance 75 kWh version with dual motors, giving it all-wheel drive. All Model 3s come equipped with the Autopilot driver-assist hardware that can be enabled with an over-the-air software upgrade. Sized and priced to compete with the BMW 3 Series, the Model 3 seats five in its stark cabin. The dash is barren, with the exception of a massive, landscape-oriented touch screen. Production has begun, and should ramp up by mid 2018.
