2019 Tesla Model 3
Ratings & Reliability
In our measurements, the Model 3 Long-Range can go 310 miles on a charge. It takes 12 hours to charge on a 32-amp 240-volt connector. The acceleration is swift, and its handling is remarkably agile. The interior is uncluttered and nicely finished, and the front seats are comfortable. However, the ride is very stiff and choppy, and the rear seat sits uncomfortably low. The controls are very distracting, because many simple tasks, such as adjusting the mirrors, require spending time interacting with the large touch screen. The Autopilot suite of driver assist systems can maintain the car's speed and keep it in its lane, but it isn't designed to react to all driving conditions, so drivers must remain constantly engaged. Standard battery versions slated for the future will have an EPA-rated 220-mile range. All-wheel-drive and performance versions are also available.
