Tesla Model 3 Against Its Competitors. To What Extent Will It Revolutionize The Market?

We have turned the corner behind which the Tesla Model 3 was hiding and as the one who does not want the thing we find the final data (and not all) while the first units of what will be the electric vehicle called to sit The foundations for the future of the automotive industry are delivered in small batches (for now).

The 500,000 units Tesla plans to put into circulation in a short period of time are going to shake up the automobile market with great force and even the foundations. Until now, the panorama of mid-range electric cars lived in relative tranquility that now, suddenly, is over.

Tesla Model 3: The Electric Revolution

At the time of its arrival on the market, it will do so with two different versions. The first is the Standard version, the version that is expected to be the most popular with a starting price of $ 35,000, a range of 354 km, acceleration of 5.6 seconds at 0-100 km / h and a maximum speed of 210 km / h.

The most promising data is that offered by the most capable variant, the Long Range. At a price of $ 44,000 (9,000 more than the Standard), Tesla offers us an electric that benefits from its best technology to achieve 499 km of theoretical autonomy, 225 km / h top speed, and 5.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h.

Far from staying in being an electric vehicle of more contained dimensions, austere and with just enough to go, two people, the Tesla Model 3 is positioned as a larger saloon than we could expect, getting fully into the C segment and placing itself at Rebuilding of cars as representative of the traditional industry as the Audi A4: 4,726 mm in length from German by 4,694 mm in American electric, a few centimeters shorter, but slightly wider, taller and with a longer wheelbase.

For its exterior dimensions, the Model 3 is positioned as a larger car in all respects than industry heavyweights such as a BMW 3 Series (4,636 mm) and, consequently, much more generous than the rest of the electric, with the exception of the Model S. Only the almost extinct and very expensive Chevrolet Volt would be able to get closer with 4,582 mm, but still, it is far away. Based on this, it is already rumored that BMW is working on an electric 3 Series to fight the latest from Tesla.

If to these promising dimensions we add Tesla’s promise that your smallest car will have higher habitability than any other car of similar dimensions we will find ourselves in a simple cabin ( very simple in reality, presided over by a huge 15-inch touch screen and little else ) but very spacious, suitable not only for daily urban commuting but also designed to be enjoyed with the family on medium journeys.
