Tesla rocked the automotive world with an
incredible high-performance, luxury, high-end
electric car with a somewhat limited range.
So for the Model 3 they created something
for the real world.

Tesla Motors derives its name from Nikola Tesla, the genius whose
inventions still impact our everyday lives — from the electrical
system powering your home to the radio and TV signals that
entertain us. These cars would make Nikola proud. The company
refers to the new Model 3 as “sustainable transport.” That means
a very practical vehicle that combines a sleek exterior, ample
interior room for 5 passengers and 215 miles per charge. Even
better, unlike most electric vehicles that are uber-pricey, the
Model 3 starts at a very reasonable $35,000. To put that into
proper perspective, the batteries for some electric cars cost more
than this car. What’s more, performance isn’t forgotten; zero to
60 takes place in 6 seconds, thanks to the neck-snapping, instant-
on torque of an electric motor. The big news is that the Model 3
is a good-looking, practical, well-priced grocery-getter that you’ll
enjoy driving all year long; TeslaMotors.com.
