If you’re in the market for a more efficient (or just pure-electric) alternative to various German plug-in hybrid sports sedans, the new Model 3 from Tesla is one way to go.
This particular Model 3 on display in Geneva was there on behalf of Caresoft, an engineering solutions company that also works with automotive suppliers. They apparently thought it was a good idea to give visitors a taste of what to expect in the near future. Whether all those gigantic “Model 3” stickers were really necessary, is another story…
Unfortunately for Tesla, the Model 3 hasn’t exactly been drama-free these past couple of months. Not only are there concerns about quality control, but some first impressions point to it being noisy at speed and uncomfortable for rear seat passengers when it comes to knee room.
Yet, it’s obviously not all bad with Tesla’s newest offering, something that’s been depicted during multiple reviews. As the world’s first-ever EV sports sedan, it comes with a reasonable price tag (for its segment), impressive all-electric range, responsive steering, a minimalist interior design (if you like that sort of thing), and a gigantic 15-inch touchscreen that basically controls everything.
Following its cameo at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the Tesla Model 3 is expected to reach European customers later this year.
