'It is a golf cart?' This is the sound of it several times during our 1000 mile journey around the electric Tesla, which hundreds of thousands of customers have paid the deposit on.
In large parts of the population will be Elon Musk and his Tesla products, regarded with the indulgence, but here in the environmentally conscious California is the Model 3 is not unusual.
It is striking how much the Model 3 similar to Model S, and there is also a difference of 29 centimeters in length. Behind the wheel experienced Model 3, however, as a smaller car, the light changes direction and does not have the same heavy experience like the Model S.
nevertheless, Model 3 is still heavy compared to the traditional car models, and the like in other electric cars characterize kiloene the driving experience in a negative direction. After several hours on the wide freeways, it is therefore also clear that the Tesla Model 3 controls better, than you can do it yourself.
the Model 3 has a self-propelled features that are designed for country and highway driving, and the car keeps its track perfectly – even in the soft curves you can't make it better. It is, however, also linked to the steering is one of the most numb, which can be bought for money.
You perceive not much contact between your hands on the steering wheel and the front wheels, and you have to almost guess what the steering wheel should have of styreinput to run a soft curve evenly, without the vehicle wanders between the lines.

Tesla are a beginner
the Cabin offers reasonable space, but neither the leg room or head height is on level with what we find in, for example, a Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
in Order to save costs have Already thrown 99 percent of all the buttons out and back are just two of the multifunction on the steering wheel and a statutory button to advarselsblinket. Everything else is controlled via the large, central screen on the 15 inch, which also serves as the speedometer.
That means for example, that the settings of the exterior mirrors must be done with the buttons on the steering wheel after several taps on the screen, and in practice it is not so functional. To turn it works well, to the daily operation of the car is done via the mobile phone. With a single password you have, through this, control over a wide range of functions.

Testbilen has been driven 8000 kilometers, and the experience of samlekvalitet is a mixed experience. Several places carry the interior seems to be håndsamlet, and other places, it is evident that Tesla are a beginner. The total experience of the interior is, however, positive.
On the teststrækningen we drove 400-500 miles on the battery. Tesla's charging points were in the way able to lynlade the car with the power equivalent to 750 kilometers of range per hour – but the speed decreased, however, when the number of cars charged at the stands.
the Tesla Model 3 is expected to reach Denmark in the first half of 2019, and will be available in two variants: 'Long Range' and 'Performance'. Both have all-wheel drive and will therefore differ a bit from the testbilen with rear-wheel drive.
to begin with will be ’Long Range’ will be the cheapest to button 465.000 crowns, while 'Performance' is available from good 576.000 dollars.

Model 3 is a very different car. Comfort is good, when you let the car steer itself, and it goes straight. The operation via the mobile phone is compelling, so we predict that the 'cheap' Tesla will have many fans in Denmark.
