Harry’s Garage – Tesla Model 3 Performance real-world review
What better way to pass time, now that the government has imposed a near-lockdown, than explore the world of electric cars? Harry Metcalfe drove the new Tesla Model 3 before the travel restrictions – so take a virtual test drive with him.
If you know Magnitude, you’ll know we’re huge fans of Tesla and all things electric – we have a fleet of Model X and Model 3 – and we finance a lot of Teslas.
Take a look at Harry’s latest video below, where he looks at the ins and outs of owning a Tesla Model 3.
Harry has spent time over the last few months exploring PHEV and full EV options, testing hybrid Range Rover and BMW X5 as well as the Jaguar I-PACE. Now it’s the turn of the Model 3, and he makes some very useful observations.
- Whilst the Tesla Model 3 Performance has a smaller battery than its competitor, the Jaguar iPace, the Model 3 still manages to eke out over 100 miles more range from a full charge – that’s some going.
- Tesla has monopolised the electric vehicle charging market, with stacks upon stacks of Tesla Superchargers across the UK, making charging a Tesla faster, easier and more convenient than other types of electric car.
- A 150kw Supercharger point can charge your car from flat in under an hour (closer to the 40-minute mark in reality) – which, whilst being a lot slower than filling your car with petrol, is considerably cheaper than the aforementioned. Harry’s 336-mile round trip cost a mere £18!
