Here's Why the Tesla Model 3 Performance Is the Best Tesla Yet

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
    The Tesla Model 3 Performance is the best Tesla yet. Today I'm reviewing the Model 3 Performance, and I'm going to discuss why it's the best Tesla -- and I'm going to show you all the cool features of the Model 3 Performance. Then I'm going to get it out on the road and drive the Tesla Model 3 Performance.

    Who will be more upset by this video? Tesla people, saying I wasn't positive enough? Or car people, saying I'm biased towards Tesla? Today, we find out!

      No easy autopilot for you to understand the external cost to 3rd parties. You could pipe the exhaust of a Silverado into a kindergarten for a lesson but I wouldn't recommend it.

      @zrRyan2 Yah, he didn't talk about fit and finish, but I've just picked up a Model 3 and the paint is way better than it was. Also, no noticeable misalignments in the body panels or doors. Doug also did not talk at all about the upkeep or fuel costs in his ratings. He still has a ways to go in the shift to the EV world.

    There is a software update coming soon called "Casino Mode" which allows you to set the A/C the same as "Dog Mode" but it's for when you want to leave the kids in the car and go inside and play the pokies.

    Tesla is car geek heaven. If you like going fast and can geek out on tons of technology, you have to get a Tesla. Model 3 Perf is the best car I've ever had.

    I thought Tesla was all about ecology, but they replace biodegradable leather with 'future landfill" leatherette, to save money and appease the snowflakes. Way to go Tesla.

    • Hannah Witt
      Hannah Witt 13 minutes ago

      ​@Seawolf Please look up the word 'mantra'. The traditional car manufacturers are definitely making more of an effort to be greener, but there is a distinct difference between that and a company whose whole ethos is to make a difference, in terms of ecology and to sell their product as an 'alternative' with that rhetoric. If you can't see that, then you are completely blinded by your brand loyalty. Which is exactly what Musk is a genius at doing.

    • Seawolf
      Seawolf 45 minutes ago

      @Hannah Witt All those manufacturers publish sustainability reports (Tesla has only started doing so) and have sustainability goals, so yes, they do have a "saving the world" mantra. Particularly VW Group ever since the emissions scandal.

    • Hannah Witt

      @Seawolf Those European manufacturers aren't selling their product on the back of a "saving the planet" mantra.

      Most European manufacturers, (VW Group, BMW, Mercedes) sell more vegan leather than real leather. Just saying. And optioning up to the full vegan experience is an extra $1,000, I believe.

      If you're in VIC, with all the taxes and everything, around $74k base model, you also get all the games. Not so bad considering the other European equivalents. But like NZ, no incentives yet.

    You know what Tesla should come up with? Charging cafes, with their v3 supercharging taking only 20 mins they could have a place to pull in, park and plug in. Go inside have a coffee or whatever and then boom 350 more miles.

    Could be the exact same as Starbucks but with v3 charging in each parking spot.

    • Seawolf
      Seawolf 2 hours ago

      They have Tesla Lounges in some areas that are exactly that. Supercharger locations usually are next to shopping centres or restaurants etc. It tells you on the map what facilities there are, and also how many charging spots are available.

      There are two other methods of unlocking the vehicle, key fob and key card, and you can track your vehicle at all times. Furthermore you can also add a password protect on the screen. So, they're not getting far if anywhere at all.

    Wow, I can't believe they can make summon mode legal. I see lawsuits already. You summon it,, it is coming to you. Another driver gets angry because it is going to slowly and blocking them from pulling out, or malfunctions and kills a kid , or a kid or ball bounces and the Tesla goes into some emergency stop mode, somebody is in an emergency situation the Tesla once again blocks the person in their parking spot. Wow I guess all that matters now is sales💲💲💵💲💵 and consumerism. 😔💲💲

    So you forget to put it in dog mode, 🙄 and you thought you put it in dog mode, , your dog dies any way. .😔. too much tech. Sorry but they need to have some hard facts if this is more or less pollution than a gas engined car. Personally I think humans are addicted to cars and is our great downfall. Public transit evolution is needed and walkable development not suburbia requiring cars .

  • ReCycle Spinning

    Can someone please answer for me ,, is an electric car more environmentally friendly than a gas car, because electricity still has to be produced and generated, also the batteries still have to be produced and generated???

    • Seawolf
      Seawolf 2 hours ago

      Yes, it is, government reports have been commissioned and peer reviewed University papers. Not all too hard to find them. Lithium ion batteries can be reused and recycled. For example the AFC Ajax stadium is powered by old EV batteries. The metals can be recycled 100% and can be remade into new batteries, Umicore, for example, does this for phone batteries and now lithium ion car batteries. Furthermore battery technology is improving all the time, becoming more efficient and relying less on rare earth minerals.

  • Shane Norman

    I'd be interested to hear of users' experience with Tesla touch-screens. Without having tried a Tesla, I think that actual buttons, ergonomically shaped and sited, are much safer because they can be located and operated by feel, without having to take your eyes off the road. Operating a touch-screen might, therefore, be a possibly dangerous distraction, especially at night (when their brightness could also compromise the driver's night vision). What's the truth?

    • Seawolf
      Seawolf 4 days ago

      It's not so bad... It takes getting used to, but yeah, sometimes doing it by feel using physical buttons is better. But you've also got that autopilot if you really do need to fiddle with the settings. But they made all the important controls large and obvious. There's a night mode for night time driving. And most of the other things, such as lights and wipers are automatic and actually useful unlike other which really do need manual setting. You really have to try it out for yourself for a week or something.
