Tesla Model 3 used: test

Some car models change the world. Tesla’s Model 3 accomplished exactly this feat. In terms of size, the 4.69-meter-long electric sedan competes with the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. Under the sheet, however, it is radically different. Because there was no affordable e-concept in the middle class before.

The space is okay: At the front, you feel comfortable on the pleasantly robust synthetic leather seats, even at 1.90 meters, while the rear lacks comparable generosity. The trunk is quite small with 340 + 85 liters (rear / front). The processing has continuously improved.

Minimalist cockpit with 15-inch touchscreen from LG. The quality is okay.

The minimalist cockpit cannot be operated intuitively

On the one hand it has Tesla an eco-image, on the other hand, the dual-motor variant offers the performance data of an athlete. 440 PS System performance and a torque of 493 Newton meters are anything but reserved. You shouldn’t even begin to exploit this potential if you’re on passable Ranges beyond 400 kilometers want to come. Other details also polarize: the minimalist cockpit is not intuitive to use, a number of functions control the traffic away. And the grandiose “Autopilot“named function is currently only a camera-based one Assistance system.
