Experience of Cars

Tesla’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its electric powertrains, which produce zero emissions. The vehicles also offer impressive range, with the Model S Long Range covering over 370 miles on a single charge (Seattle Weekly). This efficiency, combined with Tesla’s Supercharger network, makes long-distance travel feasible and convenient for EV owners.

The Tesla M3P is a pretty mind blowing vehicle

Takes a little to get used to but after 6 months use my M3P is truly a wonder. The software is excellent, the performance excellent (really , like WOW), the comfort is pretty good - I'd have liked leather not pleather. Stereo is 10/10. Navigation is 10/10. Charging at home costs me 1.50 a day and I'm doing approx 450km a week. If you are a new owner and annoyed you can't get quoted range it's because of your drive/the way you drive. I plug in each night and don't have any issues with range. I did a big trip in NSW and Superchargers were there when needed. In most hotels and motels charging was free each night.
This is really a big difference from ICE cars, very different in so many ways. Recommended if it suits your needs. Show details

I can’t believe how convenient it is

Daily driver- I drive about 400kms a week for less than $1.20/100 kms.

I charge from spare solar power at home, rather than exporting to the grid.

The electricity company also offers me a charge plan from 12-6am every night to charge at 8c/kWh, which I can use if there isn’t much sun around.

With virtually no maintenance or running costs it has been a great move financially.

And leaving home every day with a full ‘tank’ battery is so convenient.

I won’t ever go back to the (ICE) combustion engine vehicles. Show details

Is the worry worth it?

It is an inescapable fact that watching the power approaching low and preparing one self for 30 minutes at the refill station will never outweigh the nice optics that come with the car. It’s a nice car, but until you can power up in the time it takes to fill a tank with petrol it’s just too many lost hours in one’s life. Show details

Questions & Answers

Maica T. · Model 3 Rear Wheel Drive (2022-2024)

Tesla claim 491km at 100%. In reality, it was 439km at 100% fully charged. 3 months later, it is now only 436km 100% charged. So actual km range is way lower than advertised. A bit disappointed. I'm not sure why km reduced after 3 months ? Not sure if it continues to reducing km range

Yes I noticed this too. It’s so annoying.

I just read the Expert Review. I noticed in the section on Braking, you stated that the brakes weren't Brembo. I'd like to correct you on this. All 2021 Model 3s have Brembo front brakes. The Model 3 Performance also have single piston (sliding caliper) Brembo rear brakes. I do agree, that the brakes are more than adequate, when you need to apply them.

I live in Inner West Sydney (Leichhardt) and won't be able to charge at home. Only by running a cable across the pavement which suspect Council won't like even under a outdoor-rated protector strip. Chargers at Tramsheds and Broadway are fairly close to home however. Do you think Model 3 ownership is viable without home charging?

Details

In October 2023 Tesla released a facelift update to this Model 3 generation called the Highland. The Highland facelift includes modifications in fifty percent of its components. These updates include a suspension redesign focused on enhancing ride comfort, improved noise reduction, the removal of stalks from the steering column, and the addition of ventilated front seats. Other changes are a small screen at the rear, slightly better aerodynamics, and new designs for the headlights, taillights, and wheels. The traditional shifter has been replaced with options to select gears either via the touchscreen or through the car's predictive software, which automatically chooses the suitable gear. Additionally, for emergencies, buttons labeled P-R-N-D are located above the front window.
