Review

The Model 3 is great to drive, packed full of tech, is fast (ridiculously so in Performance guise) and even reasonably practical. Yes, it is firmer than some of its rivals, but it’s never uncomfortable, even on beaten-up UK roads. Factor in a competitive price and it’s a real contender not just in the electric car class but in the wider executive car class, too.

Trim: Performance

Come well equipped with adaptive cruise control, climate control, faux-leather seats a rear-view camera, a panoramic glass roof and all round parking sensors. Also gets 20in alloys and sports suspension, and is our pick of the Model 3 range.

Engine: Performance AWD

This range-topping variant combines bonkers acceleration with a long range between charges – in our Real Range tests the Performance version of the Model 3 managed 239 miles on a charge. Our pick of the range.
