Watch How Uber Riders React To Tesla Model 3


This isn’t a Ludicrous Mode reaction video.

The launch of the dual motor Performance version of the Tesla Model S brought us lots and lots of reaction videos — footage from inside the cabin of the sedan while passengers were treated to the sort of acceleration that had previously only been available to owners of supercars. They were a lot of fun. Now, there’s a reaction video featuring the mid-size Model 3 (above), but the premise is a bit different.

Instead of surprising unsuspecting passengers with incredible feats of brute torque, the aim here is to see how random Uber customers react to the car — it’s interior design, the ride quality, and, ok, maybe there’s a bit of acceleration reaction in there too (though, this appears to be a rear-wheel-drive Model 3, and so lacks the 3.5 second 0-to-60 punch of Performance version). Some of them also get to experience Autopilot for the first time.

The driver and owner of the car is Andy Slye who, it seems, is a YouTuber (and Uber driver) living in the Louisville, Kentucky area. As his passengers get in, they can’t help but notice the multiple cameras installed on the car, so we have to assume that they’re cool with being filmed. As they get in, initial reactions range from “Oh my gosh, how freaking cool is this?” to ” I feel like I’m in my living room” to a more nonchalant, “Really nice. A lot of leg room.”

As the five-minute video progresses we cycle through reactions to various aspects of the passenger’s experiences, culminating with a final response to the question, “So, what did you think of the car?” We’re not going to give away the ending, and we can’t tell you if some responses ended up on the cutting room floor. We will say, though, we suspect Slye may have made a few sales for his efforts.

And that… Is just the beginning of what Uber and Lyft Model 3 drivers will experience!

Love giving rides for Lyft as well, not so much for acceleration, sparing most customers that except for by request, but for the general experience. First impression is: how do those doors work – oh wow, nice!

Hope he gave out his referral code

I’m not an Uber driver, but I’ve given a few rides to people who were curious and these are the typical reactions. I think everyone should really just get in an EV to squash any misconceptions they may have. Yes, they are real cars, and yes they are better than gasoline cars.

Sad that I can give only one single “thumbs up!” to this comment. 🙂
