Why the Model 3 Tesla is so good
Tesla sold the 3rd amount of cars in the month of August just behind Ford Focus and VW Golf. The third generation of the pioneering electric car has taken the automotive industry by storm but why is Tesla so popular.
The Tesla model 3 Standard range is the most affordable Tesla produced. This is almost half the cost of the previous Tesla, the Model S at around £36,000 and with finance from under £400 month. Don’t think this is a cheap imitation you still get a a lot of car for your money. This is massive reason why Tesla are so good right now.
The Tesla Model 3 standard range has a top speed of 140mph and can do 0-60mph in 5.6 secs which puts in Golf R and Seat Leon Cupra territory. The base model has a range of 215 with the long range giving just over 300 miles. Go for the Dual motor and you see 0-60mph of 4.4 and 3.2 sec, top speeds of 144 and 162mph and increase range of up to 300miles. We reckon if you can afford it then go for one of these.
