Tesla Model 3, which made big news early this week, informing that it's basically already coming out of the assembly line has 8 key specifications that we know about and are going to describe in this story. Let's talk about Tesla Model 3's price, seating capacity, battery, range, speed, safety, room in the back and self-driving technology. I have to be honest here, I am not a fan of self-driving technology for number of reasons that are out of the scope of this article.

Thus, let's look at the 8 key specs of Tesla Model 3 below.


The MSRP of Model 3 is $35,000. It's almost twice cheaper than its predecessor Model S and has a comparable price with its closest competitor 2018 Nissan Leaf, spy shots of which already emerged in Japanese roads.

Tesla engineers say they designed the car specifically to achieve this rating. On the other hand, we can't say that about Model S. See Tesla Model S At Bottom of IIHS Test Results - Again.

0 To 60 Speed

Tesla Model 3 provides comfortable driving range. The range per charge is 215 miles. Supercharging is used to charge Model 3 vehicles, but take a look at this new and innovative idea that proposes to charge future Tesla vehicles using a drone while the car is on the go.
