Tesla Model 3 Latest Updates

The Tesla 3 has become one of the safest vehicles in Europe with a 5-star Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) safety rating. 

It scored 94 percent in the Safety Assist category, along with a 96 per cent score in the adult protection category. The child protection and pedestrian safety categories got a score of 86 per cent and 74 per cent, respectively.

Much of the credit goes to the car's chassis layout, driver assist systems and the lack of a combustion engine. The latter makes the front of the car an effective crumple zone, while the skateboard like chassis lowers the centre of gravity, reducing the risk of a rollover.

Tesla Model 3 Highlights


There are two battery packs to choose from - 50 kWh and 75 kWh. The smaller of the two is good for a 350km range on full charge and can hit 100kmph from a standstill in 5.6 seconds. Top speed is rated at 210kmph. With a supercharger installed, the battery can be juiced up to give a range of 210km in about 30 minutes. From a standard home charging socket, an average of 48km of range is added every hour. The bigger battery pack can run for 500km on a single charge, complete 0-100kmph in 5.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 225kmph. Supercharging and standard home charging times are clocked at 270km in 30 minutes and 60km every hour respectively.

Exterior and Interior

Tesla’s car for the masses looks like the Model S on a diet. From the rear and the side, the Model 3 looks remarkably like its bigger sibling with a tall roof line and chopped overall length. However, the Model 3 carries a different face, with its bland upturned beak that reminds us of the original Tesla Roadster and also the current Model X. The all-glass roof, which blends seamlessly into the rear end of the saloon, makes it look more like a coupe than a sedan. The standard 18-inch wheels work well with the overall styling quotient but for an additional fee, Tesla will offer 19-inchers as well.

The minimalistic design approach continues on the inside as well. Apart from the dash-mounted 15.4-inch touchscreen display with its landscape orientation, nothing else demands attention in the cabin. That display controls everything from the dual zone climate control, sat-nav to the sound system while displaying information regarding battery charge, usage and range. Oh, there is no dedicated instrument cluster, so the driver centric information like the odometer and speedometer is also fed through the same display. Because of the shorter length than the Model S, there isn’t enough room to mount two extra seats in the rear trunk. But the 60/40 split folding rear seats add to the versatility factor.


Unlike other cars, the variant list is defined on the basis of the battery packs available. As mentioned above, the standard and the long-range battery packs are the two available with the Model 3. Standard equipment is identical in both the cars. The standard kit includes the massive touchscreen display, automatic emergency braking and collision avoidance system, eight airbags and voice activated controls. Premium upgrades like LED fog lamps, 12-way power adjustable front seats, tinted roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection and, auto dimming, power folding, heated ORVMs are optional extras.


Like other Tesla models, the Model 3 doesn’t have any direct rivals. That said, it is similarly sized as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3 Series, Volvo S60, Jaguar XE and the Audi A4.


The plain design, both inside and outside the cabin, of the budget-sensitive Tesla might not floor everyone. But when it comes to tasting the future, none of its competitors come close. Although self-driving capability isn’t available with the Model 3, the zero-emission powertrain and the decent travel range on a single charge is enough to make it a must consider. That’s, of course, if you can afford one!
