2019 Tesla Model 3 verdict
The Tesla Model 3 is the electric car maker's most affordable offering yet. And while this BMW 3 Series rival won't go on sale in the UK until next year, we've been to the US for an early drive...
Tesla wants owning a Model 3 to be a practical and convenient experience. To ensure this, it is investing heavily in charging technology in all major markets, including the UK.
Like any Tesla, the Model 3 can be charged at one of the brand's Superchargers or plugged into a slower end-of-destination charger that can be installed at places such as your home or work. Where it differs from the Model S, though, is that Model 3 owners won't have free access to the network, and it's not clear yet what Tesla's pricing structure will be.
Getting this right will be cruciial. But if Tesla does the Model 3 will be one of the best electric cars on sale and a genuine alternative to petrol and diesel rivals.
