Musk: Tesla Model 3 Performance Is Higher Value For Money Than S
Value? Or Top end?
Which do you prefer?
Of course, this revelation came about just moments ago on Twitter, the preferred medium of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Model S P100D is def still the top end, but Model 3 Performance is higher value for money
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 5, 2018
We’ve witnessed a Tesla model 3 Performance hit 60 MPH in just over 3 seconds, so it’s not all that much slower than the Tesla Model S P100D, which can accomplish the feat in the low 2-second territory.
But, as alluded to by Musk, there’s quite a price difference between these two cars. In fact, it’s a dramatic leap in cash to go from the $70,000-ish (depending on options) Model 3 Performance to the $135,000-ish top-of-the-line S.
We’d save the dough and go for the 3. But if you need the extra interior space, then the S should be your choice.
