The 2022 Tesla Model 3 is truly an electric car that delivers on its promises with a near-perfect balance of performance, range, and affordability. The Model 3 is an electric car that enthusiast drivers like us like because it’s fast – especially in the performance version – and agile. We also included it in our top 5 of 2023. The mid-range long-range version’s impressive range of 358 miles on a single charge minimizes the need to charge Model 3 every day. Bolt or the Ford Mustang Mach E.
Prices for the 2023 Tesla Model 3 starts at $45,130.
Regardless of what you think of Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk, there’s a lot to understand here in general, the Model 3 electric vehicle fundamentally changed the EV game. Thanks to strong sales, an impressive range and excellent performance, it remains competitive despite the influx of new EVs like the Hyundai Ioniq 6 and Polestar 2.
Some drivers would no doubt prefer the Model Y SUV to SUV land, but the Model 3 is comfortable and fun to drive. While we like the extra horsepower and sporty looks of the Performance trim, the Long Range model’s claimed 358-mile range makes it a buy in our opinion.
What has changed in 2023?
For now, versions of Tesla’s cheapest 2023 model remain unchanged. Reports say the EV may get a styling update soon. However, given Tesla’s performance to date, the updated Model 3 may not be available until the 2024 model season.
Cost, but what to drive?
$45,130 long range.
$55,630 rear-wheel drive.
Is an incredible deal that some drivers the agency may still be trying 272-mile radius because of environmental fears. We recommend the Long-Range model, which will give you the expected 358 miles of travel on a single charge. Heated front seats, GPS and Tesla’s semi-autonomous driving systems with Autopilot are standard on every Model 3. Electric motor power. Compared to our long-range Model 3 Long Range, Model 3 Performance accelerates to 100 km/h or 0 in just 3.5 seconds. Time savings of 5 seconds. Like all other Tesla’s, the Model 3’s battery is located under the floor, which means that the center of gravity is low. Thanks to this, it can turn sharply and feel confident in turns. With three different steering force settings, the steering is precise and balanced. It’s a tough race. While the ride is bumpy, but not bumpy either, inside there’s still road noise as the tires slap and drive through potholes in the pavement.
Range, Charging, and Battery Life: -
Model 3 is available in three different trim levels, each with a different expected range. The cheapest option is the base rear-wheel drive variant, which has a claimed range of 272 miles. Estimated range for Variant 3 increases to 315 miles for the Performance model and 358 miles for the Long-Range model when switching to these models. Of course, it’s difficult to travel that far, the Model 3 features Tesla’s network of fast charging stations known as Superchargers, DC charge point adapters, 240- and 120-volt outlets, and a home charging station. Fuel economy and overall effectiveness, the EPA rates many iterations of the Model 3 from 113 mages to 138 mages. Aluminum wheels wrapped in aerodynamically shaped plastic hubcaps are standard on the Model 3.
Cargo, Comfort, and Interior: -
When we say that the Tesla Model 3 really can have an interior like no other vehicle on the market today, we’re not kidding. The huge dashboard displays that controls almost everything is surprisingly simple on the inside. We wish the buttons on the steering wheel-controlled things like steering wheel placement and mirrors instead of having their unusual looks. Tesla’s low, level floor gives the interior a spacious, open character. Don’t expect adults to spend a lot of time in the back seats due to their low position and discomfort. The front seats are firm and comfortable. By splitting the rear seats in a 60/40 ratio, the trunk can be significantly increased. In addition, Model 3’s rear headrests fold down to create a continuous cargo floor for transporting heavier items. Model 3 has room for 15 carry-on bags with the rear seats folded. In addition, there are plenty of spacious storage and storage compartments throughout the cab.
Connectivity and Entertainment: -
Oddly enough, the Model 3 doesn’t come with AM FM or SiriusXM satellite radio, but GPS, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity come standard. There are many online radio streaming options. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto cannot be activated either. Model 3 has plenty of entertainment options on the central screen, including Netflix, YouTube, and various arcade games to make stops at the charging station more bearable.
Driver assistance and safety features: -
The driver assistance system offers one of the best feature packages in the industry, with quick operation and amazing features like automatic lane changes, although we wonder if the Autopilot moniker is inaccurate.
Key safety features include: -
Standard Automatic Emergency Braking Typical Lane Departure Warning
