Tesla unveiled their all-new 2017 Tesla Model 3 car on March 31st of this year. Previously, many fascinating details about this new model had already leaked. Tesla made a wise decision, and, as a result, the 2017 Model 3 Electric Vehicle is one of the most anticipated cars.

Tesla’s founders have long desired to create an affordable middle-class electric vehicle. Tesla has previously built and sold more expensive models such as the Tesla Roadster, Model X, and Model S in order to be able to create this car. These more expensive electric models are intended to ensure that sufficient funds are available to create the more affordable Model 3. They do, however, pave the way for the public’s perception of driving electrically.

Exterior design

The 2017 Tesla Model 3 looks like a Tesla, which means it’s supercurvy, supersleek, and superfresh. It’s reminiscent of the Tesla Model S and X, but it’s only about 80% the size of the Model S. There will be a sedan model as well as a compact crossover model.

The 2017 Tesla Model 3’s face is stunning. The headlights are steeper than those on the Model S, giving the vehicle a Porsche-like appearance. The Tesla logo will be placed in the middle of the hood, rather than on the grille. We all know that simplicity is the current trend in car manufacturing, but leaving the grille behind is the next level. Daytime running lights, or DRL, are clearly visible on the lower portion of the front.

The car’s side looks almost identical to that of the Model S. The biggest difference is at the back of the car, where the trunk and its lid appear to be very small, and they are. The Model 3 is only 80% the size of a Model S, and its trails are mostly in the trunk space, as headroom for the backseat had to be saved by taking some from the trunk space. The taillights are also different: they are more basic and not as well designed as the Model S’s.

Interior design

Because the Model 3 is intended to be a low-cost vehicle, don’t expect too much luxury. Whereas the Model S and X are adorned with wood, leather, and gleaming aluminum, the Model 3 standard is more straightforward. Premium interior options, on the other hand, will almost certainly be available at an additional cost.

In addition, touchscreen, touchscreen, touchscreen. By 2017, even the most basic vehicles will be equipped with this technology. The Model 3 will have it in the center of the dashboard. We’re a little puzzled by the Model 3 because it has a massive touch screen. This thing, which looks like a tablet, takes up the entire middle of the car. However, we are very much looking forward to this!

It is incredible that such a low-cost vehicle comes with such a large touch screen. You’d be tempted to put on the most recent episode of your favorite TV show while driving home, which could be extremely dangerous. It could also be that it isn’t all that dangerous.

Engine specifications

The standard model is rear-wheel drive and has a range of at least 200 miles (322 km). Tesla also intends to launch a dual-motor all-wheel-drive Model 3. Car batteries will be available in capacities of 40, 60, 70, and 85 kWh.

The driving range will be 200 miles and the horsepower will be 250 with a 40 kWh battery. The top speed will be an incredible 115 mph (185 kph), and it will take only 5 seconds to reach 60 mph (110 kph). When a larger battery is used, the horsepower, top speed, and 0-60 time will all increase.

Tech specifications

Bluetooth connectivity, USB charging ports, and navigation are standard features. A rear backup camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, and heated seats are available as optional packages for the more modern features.


Tesla has repeatedly stated that they want to be the first car manufacturer to create a fully functional driverless car. Self-parking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automatic high/low beam headlights are already standard features on the current Model S. Some of these features are expected to be standard on the Model 3, while others will be available as premium options. However, the 2017 Tesla Model 3 will be a semi-autonomous vehicle with the potential to become a fully autonomous vehicle.


The starting price in the United States will be around $35,000, or around €40,000 in Europe. American drivers may be eligible for a $7,500 tax credit if they purchase an all-electric vehicle, bringing the total cost to $27,500. Tesla will have succeeded in producing an affordable electric car.
