Tesla has done more than any other brand to lift the appeal of electric cars and the Model 3 – its most cost-effective car – gives you all the innovation you associate with the brand. Let’s start with the official maximum battery range, which varies between 305 miles and 374 miles, depending on the model.
Few rivals can match the Model 3 for performance, and many sports cars would struggle to keep up. It’s exceptionally quick, with some versions capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds. You’ll find it an enjoyable car to drive at any speed, with a smooth ride and great balance on a winding road.
The interior is simplicity itself, with a large, easy-to-use touchscreen at the centre of the dashboard. There’s ample space for tall adults in the front and back. The boot is huge and there’s extra storage space under the bonnet, making the Model 3 a very practical family saloon.
