Introduction

What Car? says...

From Elon Musk’s late night tweets to seemingly endless speculation about share prices, there’s so much noise around Tesla it’s sometimes easy to forget that the company makes cars. Some of you will doubtless know plenty about this one already, but for those who don't, what exactly is the Tesla Model 3?

Well, it's a fully electric car – Tesla doesn’t do petrols, diesels or even hybrids – and it’s the US brand’s smallest and cheapest model to date, sitting below the Tesla Model S luxury saloon, and the Tesla Model Y and Tesla Model X SUVs.

However, officially at least, the Tesla Model 3 can manage a longer distance between battery charges than any of those alternatives. It can charge up really quickly too, at one of the abundant Tesla Superchargers dotted around the country.

Stay with us over the next few pages and we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Model 3, including what it’s like to drive, how practical it is and how many miles it can really do on a charge. We’ll also run you through some of the car’s impressive safety and self-driving tech, as well as some of the less serious aspects of Tesla Model 3 ownership (Netflix, anyone?).

If you fancy taking the plunge, put a Model 3 on your driveway with no effort whatsoever using the free What Car? New Car Buying service
