Check out this Tesla Model 3 Performance test drive from LA to Vegas.
Paul Maric from Australia-based automotive publication Car Advice welcomed the opportunity to come to the states and get in the driver's seat of an all-new Tesla Model 3 Performance. He drove the car from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada to get some solid time with it and utilize the Tesla Supercharger Network. After his time with the EV, he awarded it with a score of 8.8 out of 10.
Maric took the opportunity to work the Model 3 over and report on all the fine details. Interestingly, his first observation had nothing to do with the car itself, but rather the Supercharger Network. Australia doesn't offer such a substantial network, so it was refreshing for Paul.
