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. The driving range spans from 240 to 310 depending on the version. We bought a Model 3 with the Long Range battery.

Tesla Model 3 Road Test

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.

The driving range spans from 240 to 310 depending on the version. We bought a Model 3 with the Long Range battery. Our testers found the Model 3 to be fun to drive, thanks to the superb handling and immediate thrust from the electric motor. However, the Model 3's distracting controls, overly stiff ride, and uncomfortable rear seat count heavily against it.

The Model 3 is like other EVs in that it deploys its full torque instantly and rushes off from a dead stop with authority. Every prod of the accelerator pedal translates to immediate thrust in near silence.

Best Version to Get
The standard range is 240 miles but we recommend opting for the 310 mile range. Buyers in the snow belt should opt for the all-wheel-drive version (dual motor). We would also get the Premium Upgrades option for its 12-way power and heated front seats.
