Tesla Model 3

Tesla's Model 3 compact sports sedan is the company's first attempt at a mass-market electric car. It is aimed at competitors like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series--but unlike those cars, the Tesla doesn't consume a drop of fuel. Mid-Range 260 mile range, or Long Range 310 mile range are available. We bought a Model 3 with the Long Range battery.

What Owners Say

"Always feel to be in complete control. Amazing acceleration, and this is with LR RWD set-up. AWD performance version would almost be too much for me (but fun)."

Roger G., VA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The Model 3 has amazingly smooth and fast acceleration. Merging onto a highway is a piece of cake, and just overall driving is very pleasant and effortless. We've also been loving how little you need to use the brakes, since letting off the accelerator automatically begins braking. It takes a small bit of adjustment at first, but becomes easy and intuitive very quickly."

Carolyn D., PA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"We are still learning but it is almost never necessary to use the car's brakes. We have excellent control of motion with the accelerator."

Marilyn F., OR (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Fast acceleration, quiet operation. Both typical in electric cars."

Robert P., ON (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Best driving car I have ever owned"

Anonymous, CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The acceleration is incredible. (And this is Tesla's slowest model!) Handling is firm with great feedback, and it sticks to the road like glue in high-G turns. The only thing I don't like is the rather large turning radius."

Mark A., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The get-up and go is fantastic and I smile every time I mash the accelerator"

Anonymous, AZ (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"This cars quiet acceleration is amazing and its handling is on par with cars that cost twice as much. I believe the model 3 is a game changer for the automotive industry. No other manufacturer has anything that can compete with it in its price range."

Scott L., CO (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Acceleration is instantly responsive. Unlike any other car I've driven. Handling feels very secure."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Unbelievable. That's it. The most unbelievable acceleration and handling. Yes, the performanve S and new roadster will be faster, but for the money, the M3 is perfect."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"OMG, this car is so FUN! Fast, linear acceleration at the tap of a pedal. Smooth pulling all the way to 60 and beyond. My favorite is accelerating from speed (say 40 miles or so). Instant response that presses your head back into the headrest. Just a blast to drive. My favorite car ever, far and away."

Johnson J., CT (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Outstanding acceleration. Very tight, secure handling."

Anonymous, OH (2018 Tesla Model 3)

Jessica M., WA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Excellent acceleration and great cornering. Very responsive to steering. Hold road exceptionally well."

Adrian R., ON (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"It is a pocket rocket. Super acceleration and handling."

Sheldon R., FL (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The instant acceleration and regenerative braking provides a different driving experience than most gasoline vehicles. But it's a very welcome change and it ruins you to driving any thing else."

Anonymous, VA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Fantastic acceleration and handling. Drives smoothly, hugs the road and accelerates like a rocket ship."

Anonymous, NC (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The Tesla is really a joy to drive, much better than any car I have ever owned. In particular the AutoDrive feature makes driving in rush hour, tolerable. The car on it's own will stop and go in sync with traffic. My other car (Avalon) has radar cruise control but it will not handle stop and go traffic. Also the car is very responsive, accelerates well and is ecological to use."

"Performance is VERY close to that of our Boxster S and Porsche Carrera 4. I've read reviewers notes comparing the Model 3 as being close to a Boxster. I call it a real comfortable 4-door Boxster. Never had a 4-door sedan with equivalent performance or handling. Fantastic car!!!"

Douglas C., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The handling and the acceleration are incredible making the vehicle a fun car to drive. Because of the low battery location, the car does a great job handling curves."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"the most fun car i ever driven, the acceleration, the handling is in a different class, nothing compare to it, and its almost free to operate, charging cost less than filling up my land mower, you survey has an error in your charging distance question, i could not put a number higher than 400, but the reality is that i achieved close to 500 km may be 475 km"

"Driving is effortless. The more I drive this car the more the genius of its design becomes apparent. The clean design provides all the information necessary for driving without being distracting. The car responds immediately and surely to driver inputs. Acceleration, handling, and braking are amazing. It is a pleasure to get behind the wheel."

John M., WA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Responsiveness is a standout. The electric motor responds FAR faster than an ICE. An ICE car feels like you are controlling it. This car feels like I am part of it. I do a demonstration for people: I start from a dead stop and kick the accelerator ON/OFF just as quick as I can. I try to have my foot on the pedal (down to the floor) for no more than 1/20th of a second. it leaps forward. in an ICE car you'd only get an engine rev."

Walter R., MT (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Very fast, very very cheep to drive due to solar collectors on my roof and dealer maint. also fun to drive"

Robert M., NY (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Both are outstanding!! Acceleration is amazing—I have to be careful not to speed. The car handles beautifully on the road. Can choose to put steering in “sportscar‿ mode which offers tight steering and excellent control. Best car I’ve ever driven by far!"

Joel L., MA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The model 3 is incredibly fun to drive. It is fast and nimble. It is a joy to drive and makes me smile everyday. The enhanced autopilot feature if used the way it is intended, is very safe and really makes a roadtrip much less stressful and is much more relaxing. It really takes the fatigue out of a whole day of driving."

Anonymous, OH (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Accleration is awesome. Nearly as good as the Tesla Roadster and Model S. Handling is much better than the Roadster. Awesome on twisty mountain roads and on the freeway. Its a joy to drive or the autopilot is great for a relaxing commute on the highway or in traffic."

"Very quick and responsive. Has a slight front end vibration at about 40 mph."

Susan R., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Acceleration is outstanding. No one needs it any faster, unless you plan to race at the strip on weekends. Tires grip very well, no worry about sliding out on turns or roll overs. Excellent brakes, even better with the software update. Re-gen is amazing, nearly allowing one pedal driving. When using Auto-Pilot (with my hands on the wheel at all times), our Model 3 will handle curves, straightaways, slowing traffic, and even stop when traffic in front stops at lights. It will resume and move back to the preset speed when it is safe. Steering is tight and we have it on standard, not sport mode."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Amazing accelaration and handling. Best handling car i driven. Responsible steering wheel.However, its taking me time to get use to the re generative braking and quick accelaration. I feel dizzy everytime I ride, so does my wife. Driver need to relearn how to use the acceleration pedal, one foot driving. Overall, driving this car is very fun, zippy"

"This vehicle is just amazing. I’ve owned Corvettes and Mustangs among many other vehicles and nothing compares to the road holding, cornering, acceleration, solid ride, and “fun-to-driviness‿ of the Model 3. The electronics are equally incredible with an outstanding navigation system updated periodically and automatically, new features added with software updates done over the air, and one of the best factory audio systems I’ve ever heard. Another great feature is not needing any key for any purpose...just the Tesla app on my iPhone. No keys to forget, or lose. And oh yes, it is totally electric."

John S., NC (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Acceleration , handling is great, Ffuel economy is great. Auto pilot is requires getting used to , cruise control is good. Home link is better than most, but is tempramental at times. Touch screen controls are distracting and would have prefered traditional controls. Trying to manage screen functions while driving have accidently started seat heater. Rear view could be better,"

Julie F., NJ (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Amazing responsiveness and power for the “low end‿ RWD model. It’s the fastest and sportiest handling car I’ve ever owned and I love the way it takes corners and will drift just slightly when flooring it out of a corner. The car’s 0-60 is several tenths faster than the advertised speed. I also love having autopilot for rush hour traffic to make me more relaxed. I can just look around and not worry about someone cutting me off anymore. Autopilot is not perfect, and I have had to take over twice to avoid crashes: once on a residential road where lane markers disappeared, and once on a freeway where the car thought the off ramp was where I needed to go."

"The electric motor provides a consistently high level of torque throughout the entire speed band, there is no torque RPM optimal band like in a conventional gasoline car. So when passing, a press down on the accelerator provides instant response instead of the gear drop lag."

James L., AZ (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Acceleration is amazing and as a component of handling, adds to the safety and excitement of the vehicle. The car is responsive and easy to control. The noise level is no less than any European car I've owned and much better than most Asian manufactured cars...especially when there is NO noise from the engine. I love it that I'm able to avoid using fossil fuel and have a level of comfort and performance that is at the top of my list of favorite cars."

"Not a sports car and wouldn’t take it to the track but does possess sufficient sports car characteristics to feel confident in cornering at speed. The best part of the experience is the acceleration response enabling the 4,000+ lbs sedan to be maneuvered quickly and safely in and out of tight spaces."

"We are not aggressive drivers, but the Tesla is AMAZING. we don't drive fast, but the instant acceleration makes us feel safer on the road. Merging is so much better than it's been on any other car I've owned. Also, the AutoPilot makes highway driving and heavy traffic much less stressful."

"When accelerating,, I am pushed back in the seat. Even at higher speeds I'm able to accelerate quickly to pass another vehicle"

Mel S., MI (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Easily the fastest and most effortless acceleration of any car we've ever owned. It's the basic RWD model and it's a rocket when it needs to be. Super quick steering is fabulous and it feels like it's on rails when cornering. It's 3 times the car we've ever had previously and we've had some interesting ones over the years."

"Seats extremely comfortable and feel secure. Multidirectional seat control easy to use. This car is very nice to drive. The ride is comfortable, responsive, and enjoyable. Slightly more highway road noise than expected, though this is probably due to the lack of engine noise which would normally mask wind noise."

Rich E., AZ (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"seat comfort and adjustability are terrific. It is very quiet, though at high speeds, there is wind noise through the left window. It handles very well, is fun to drive, accelerates and stops nicely. The regenerative braking not only adds efficiency but aids braking around town. The only concern I would have is that the shocks are not great."

Kenneth M., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Very comfortable seats, firm but cushy. No ICE noise, almost silent at low speed, mostly tire noise at highway speed. Firm, solidly planted suspension, but not jarringly stiff."

Roger G., VA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Comfort is great. The seats are firm and supportive for my thin 5’ 11‿ body. I love the multiple driver profiles and air conditioning controls. It’s also the coldest air conditioning system I have ever experienced, and being able to pre-condition the car with the Tesla iPhone app has changed my life during the 6 months of Phoenix AZ’s summer."

M E., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Worst ride over uneven roads. Car handles amazing, but the ride is not what i expected for a $54k premium sports sedan over uneven roads. On hwy, its OK, but while driving on a uneven hwy on Eastern Long Island NY called Sunrise hwy, my wife, kids and I were bouncy and shaking from our seats, not cool for a $54k Sports Sedan. Like The Tech, and charging at home is way cheaper, convinient and environmentally responsible, but i got this car for the AutoPilot and Charging at Home. Road Noise is OK for a quite car. Seats are comfortable, I which they made the ride less bouncy and shaking over uneven roads"

Maximo B., NY (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The seats in the Model 3 are like sitting in an easy chair, both drivers side and passenger side. The back seats are comfortable with good leg room. The seats are comfortable at reasonable speeds."

Gary T., CA (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"Have not ridden in rear although passengers state they are surprised with the amount of headroom and enjoy the airiness of the glass roof. Rear seats reasonably comfortable especially the recently “upgraded‿ ones. The driver’s seat is ideal, well bolstered adjustment to support the lower back. The multiple adjustments available (with memory) insure the same setting repeatedly - the A pillar intrudes slightly in the otherwise excellent view. No rattles, a (mostly) quiet ride save the sometimes rough and potholed Chicago city streets. Responsive steering, low center of gravity and instant, quiet & linear acceleration result in a fun and sometimes exhilarating driving experience."

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"This car cost $56,500 before taxes and title. It's an awesome electric car, but it is not a value proposition. A 2018 Honda Accord Touring would provide a far better value proposition with more features and $20,000 less. Still I'm loving my first EV and seriously doubt I'll ever go back to an ICE car for myself, fortunately I could afford the premium."

Anonymous, MO (2018 Tesla Model 3)

"The best thing about our new Model 3, in my opinion, is the money you save on gas. We calculated that the electric cost to power the car is roughly 1/5 the cost of gasoline, which is a huge savings since my husband (the primary driver of the car) commutes over an hour each way to work. We just completed a 9-day road trip through Canada (drove from Pennsylvania to Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Niagara, and back home) and our energy cost the entire trip was only $62 USD! We also will receive a large ($7500) federal tax credit and a smaller ($1750) state tax incentive for purchasing when we did, which really makes this a fantastic value for us. It's also proven to be a comfortable car, even on the extended road trip, and it's fun to drive as well, so the value is huge in our opinion."
