About The Model 3

The Tesla Model 3 is the companies flagship electric fastback sedan with its siblings the Model X and Model S weighing a lot more.

This Model 3 has an impressive range of 263 miles on a full charge and the Long Range version from the same manufacturer is capable of achieving 353 miles.

Tesla is proud of the way that they push out new software updates to their range of cars, allowing them to evolve and continue to be improved (including the self-driving software).

The car began a limited production run in mid-2017 while the founder Elon Musk was helping iron out the bugs in the factory.

Now the Model 3 holds the title for the best-selling electric car in the world when it overtook the Nissan Leaf in March 2020.

For a period of time, the car also held the title of best-selling plug-in hybrid car in the world around the years 2018 and 2019.

The car started its life a long time before it began serious production with the company’s CEO mentioning the Model 3 in Wired magazine as an affordable new car that’s electric.

In 2008 the name came up again but this time the car was presented more as a family car and the CEO boasted it would have a record low drag coefficient for any production car.
