They got a first exclusive disc before the revelation, which you can read here, but here are the top 10 things you need to know about Tesla for all.
10. The glass roof is optional.
Not everyone is a fan of rooftops, and you do not have to get one if you do not want to. The Tesla Model 3 all-model glass roof is part of the $ 5,000 Premium Upgrades package, which also includes wider materials, wood trim, enhanced stereo and heated rear seats with dedicated USB charging ports. If you choose not to buy it, you will get a metal roof.
9. It is ready to fly.
The Tesla engineers had very specific instructions for frunk: make it big enough for hand luggage. This way, you will know: if your handbag is adapted to the model of Tesla 3, it fits into the trash.
8. You can use Superchargers.
Like model S and model X, Tesla Model 3 will have the capacity to supercharge the standard. Unlike S and X, there is no charge charge included. All model 3 owners will have to pay to charge, but Tesla says it’s enough to cover the costs and not make any profit. You will have to pay the kilowatt hour or the minute according to local regulations.
7. There is a dual-wheel drive model to come.
At launch, the only transmission option for Tesla Model 3 will be a rear engine and a rear-wheel drive. At one point or another, after the ramp-up of production, Tesla will launch a dual-wheel drive model with both the front and rear engines. The front engine does not affect free space.
6. The autopilot material comes on each car.
Like the S model and the X model, all models 3 will be delivered with all the cameras and equipment needed for the autopilot steering already installed. If you want to activate it, it will cost $ 5,000. You do not have to decide now because the software can be installed on your car anytime in the future.
5. It is the test of the future for self-driving.
In the future, Tesla will release a complete autonomous driving software (Autopilot is an advanced speed and track control system), and the Tesla 3 model will be ready. To get the upgrade, however, you must purchase Autopilot software ($ 5,000). You will also have to pay $ 3,000 for stand-alone driving software. You can preorder it now or pay when it will finally be published.
4. Your application is your key.
The Tesla application on your smartphone is your key to the car. There is no key to lose. As long as your phone is on you, you have keyless entry and start. You can also control some of the car’s features of the application, such as locking and unlocking. Someone needs to borrow your car? Give them the smart card valet, a “key” credit card that allows the holder to open and drive the car.
3. There are two battery options.
The standard battery takes 220 miles on a load. The optional long range battery takes 310 miles and costs $ 9,000. Tesla will no longer refer to batteries by their kilowatt-hour capacity, as is the case on model S and model X, because the figures are too confusing.
2. It charges like Tesla: fast.
On a Supercharger, the standard battery charges in about 50 minutes and the Long Range battery recharges in about 55 minutes. The standard battery wins 130 miles in 30 minutes, but the Long Range battery earns 170 miles at the same time. At home or at a 240 volt public charger, the standard battery costs about 7.5 hours, and the larger long range battery needs about 8.5 hours. The standard battery gets 30 miles per hour, and the Long Range battery takes 37 miles at that time.
1. It will reach 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
It will not be slow, but it will not be ridiculous either. With the standard battery, model 3 will reach 60 miles per hour of shutdown in 5.6 seconds. With the large battery, it will reach 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. There are no insane or Ludicous Modes … for now.
