We're used to electric cars being fast, and the Model 3 is no exception. Tesla claims a 0-60mph time of under six seconds, and that's in standard form. How long will it be before 'Ludicrous Mode' is available? If you're less enthusiastic with your right foot, a range of 200 miles between charges is claimed, which is enough for most journeys. Free access to Tesla's network of Superchargers comes as standard with the car.
In practical terms, the Model 3 is said to offer greater interior space than conventional cars of the same class. Without an internal combustion engine up front, occupants can take advantage of the freed up space. There's a boot front and rear, like the Model S. There's no reason for the car to adopt the usual two/three-box shape, except perhaps for greater market acceptance.
