Is there a more polarizing car company or car than the Tesla Model 3? Maybe, maybe not, but whatever you think, there is much to be said about the disruption happening at Tesla. Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio is never one to shy away from a little controversy, and he takes an in-depth look here at the car that a guy whose name starts with an Elo... believes would change everything.

The new Teslas are amazing! They leave more fuel for my SS Camaro to quench its thirst 😎

So much for Elon Musk's affordability goals, more like lies. $35K is still expensive for a midsize sedan. The $35K Model 3 is not "mass market", the $23K Camry and Accord are. Tesla is overpriced like Apple. Tesla SUCKS!
00crashtest 11 soat oldin
+Whispered Metsutan Exactly! Teslas have tons of panel gaps, bubbling paint, and water leakage issues.
Whispered Metsutan
Wouldn't buy a Tesla anyways. Their build quality is horrible and takes a month to fix any problems. Most of the Teslas I see are on tow truck flatbeds.

Now I don’t normally comment on videos but I have to say finally a review that’s real for the REAL MAN. You drive just like me and you have sold the Tesla to me. Now I know how it performs whacking around bends and having a bit of fun in it. Great video many thanks. Only downside is we still don’t have them in the UK and when we do and after taxes and virtually zero government incentives it will probably cost about a million pounds!!!!!!!

I just don’t see full electrics taking over. Who the heck can go on a road trip and make at least an hour stop to charge up? Hell if the gas line is too long at one gas station i move on to the next, i’m not taking more than 5 minutes to gas up or charge up! $47,000 lol when those batteries are dead in 5 years come talk to me. Oh and Tesla is non-existent or you start needing repairs/parts. Silly buyers who just needed to be the first to get the new driving iPad. Oh and my gas Honda is almost on mark with the charging cost per gallon, at least at CA. Electric prices.
Whispered Metsutan
All what these people buy them for is because they are quick. Dodge Demon gets up to 200mph while the fastest Tesla is around 150. Electric cars are hype, they won't last when the batteries degrade.

$14 for 200 miles of range is about the same or even more than most gas sedans. Tesla needs to get the charging station costs down for the Model 3 to be competitive with gas vehicles.
KingProne 7 kun oldin
+Richard McKrell also a usa problem because of the 110 volt only. saying that, you guys have it relatively cheap to add a 2 or 3 phase outlet or high voltage outlet.
Richard McKrell
Richard McKrell 7 kun oldin
Yeah I agree, and then you have the added problem of the 14 miles per hour charge at 220 when home charging. That's just unacceptable.
KingProne 7 kun oldin
i did the maths before with a Model S vs a 2L Diesel sedan and the diesel is definitely cheaper on long range trips. It's just a combination of fuel being incredibly cheap in the USA and even though electricity is very cheap at home it is relatively expensive at a supercharger. (Unlike in europe where the difference isn't that significant)
Richard McKrell
Richard McKrell 8 kun oldin
14 miles an hour charge at 220V means it takes 23 hrs to get a full 325 mile charge. Is Tesla kidding?

Yeah I had the same reaction to the super charger cost. now you want customers to wait, then pay for it, then be penalized if they stay at the station for too long? It’s kinda use the super charger or nothing else at that point. If something isn’t working probably and it’s a busy day for the chargers your trip is fucked... your trapped.

OPEC is about to become irrelevant. All of that vast oil wealth over the past 70 years has been squandered by Arab princes and kings on private Boing 747 and palm shaped islands. When the electric car revolution makes the internal combustion engine obsolete, and nobody wants their black sludge anymore, they will have absolutely nothing to trade.

Did you mention how safe it is? With no front engine it has a huge crumble zone. This is the biggest factor in safety. It also has the lowest center of gravity and a better balanced platform with weight from the batteries distributed evenly. Oh and not only is it safe it is low maintenance, it doesnt have a transmission. The average drivetrain has 3000 parts while the model s has about 30. Instant torque also means you have better traction control because revs can change much more quickly.

+MMBTUS That's not the same. I've used it via streaming before when the antenna required replacement. The quality is inferior, you're subjected to mobile dead spots, and the usability when driving is poor. Tesla needs to add the normal Sirius/XM receiver and antenna, or at least make it an option. The Model 3 is off my buy list specifically for this reason.

Was thinking of getting a Model 3 until I called my insurance company. right now I have a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 which is $950 a year to insure. Dropping that and adding a Tesla Model 3 would ADD $850. So The yearly total is about $1800. This eliminates completely any savings by not using gas.
Travis Stratton
Travis Stratton 23 soat oldin
Whispered Metsutan the only problem with that is all my friends with Tesla’s say it’s the best car they have ever had. Some owning 3+ years with zero problems. So I’m on the fence. If you have solar on your house it really makes sense. Why let pg&e take all your extra power and give you nothing for it.
Whispered Metsutan
Electric cars are overpriced junk anyway. Less moving parts, lack of places to charge them/too long to charge makes gas vehicles better. Oh also in cold temps EVs are junk. Anyone driving an EV doesn't care about the problems or the cost because if their EV won't run they still have their gas vehicle or Uber. For the rest of us daily commuters we need a cheap gas vehicle to get us to point A to B. Buy a Honda or Toyota with minimal maintence for 30 years will cost less than an EV when you need to call a tow because the battery failed.
titanman2789 12 kun oldin
You must not drive a lot. Assuming a $40 fill up every week you would still save roughly $1000 by driving the Model 3, and that is just in not paying for gas (this not counting the cost of electricity). Add in other gas vehicle maintenance like oil changes and I think you would be saving money. Is it enough to justify buying one of these? Eh, maybe not

I dont like having 2 buttons for "everything". What if I want to turn the music up or down, tilt the steering wheel up and bounce out of then car? What if I go out for a run, and leave the car, I have to carry a heavy cell phone with me or carry a big card? Whats that all about? why not a keypad? Or a small remote that fits into your pocket? And do I have to turn on the car to tilt up the steering wheel? My Acura TL has a manual lever for the steering wheel lock. I see Telsa really cut corners to reduce a lot of costs by making everything electronic. So, why does it cost so much? I dont understand. It's a bare car. Sounds over priced to me. And with all those reductions, it still weights 3700 to 4100 pounds. amazingly heavy.

+Mike Silverii "and is easily the most popular EV in America BY FAR." Teslas aren't particularly well designed or manufactured. Already we are seeing cars that equal Tesla in terms of range. There are also cheaper alternatives. The problem is that unless they step up they will get beaten at their own game. I'm a big fan of what it is Tesla is trying to do, but I suspect they won't last on their own. People will soon see that other manufacturers will have a wide variety of fully electric vehicles, and will then have much more choice.

$14.04 for 200 miles is $1/14.25 miles. 1 gallon of regular is about $2 give or take depending on area. So $2 gets you 28.5 miles of range in the tesla. If your car gets 28.5mpg or better then you won’t save on fuel costs by getting this Tesla. Non hybrid cars in this size class typically get 28+ city/35-40 highway.
Whispered Metsutan
A Challenger with the V6 option if your easy on the gas can get around 34mpg. There really isn't much savings with driving a Tesla. They like to boast savings but if your hard on the throttle it doesn't really matter EV or gas. And all the other EVs on the market is trash, but Teslas are not much better. You can buy a Honda or Toyota and save more money on everything from insurance to the overall cost of having to replace your vehicle down the road.

What? 1-2 miles per hour on a 120 volt charger, you are definitely doing something wrong. At 120v and a conservative 15 amp fuse, you'll get 1800 watts per hour. The model 3 average is less than 350 watt-hour per mile. You should be getting 6 miles per hour of charge from a 120 volt outlet. Here in Alberta, Canada electricity is dirt cheap.

You can over the autopilot. When in autopilot just press on the gas to increase your speed pass the set limit and then take your foot of the pedal to decrease you speed back to the set autopilot speed. You can also cancel autopilot just by touching the brake or a hard steer on the steering wheel.

Yeah $14 may be cheaper than standard gas but what they don’t mention is what you’re doing while waiting an hour for your car to charge? Are you sitting in your car doing nothing? No, most likely you’re at some restaurant or some place wasting time and SPENDING MONEY when you wouldn’t be spending it otherwise with an ICE car. So basically unless you’re just sitting out there doing nothing for an hour, most likely you’re spending money somewhere else. Saving money? No, just distributing money to different areas. Think about that.

It's always best to charge your vehicle up to 75% at a supercharger, since the charging rate will slow down significantly after that. So about 220 miles is the highest I'd recommend unless you really need the full range to your next stop.
