Here’s one more Tesla Model 3 quick spin by the Verge’s Nilay Patel, featuring Ashley Carman, Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) and Loren Grush.

The impressions and insights are very interesting since the vast majority hand-raiser still have yet to test the car.

We can immediately spot that those who are all new to the Model 3 aren’t able to quickly open the doors, for example. The functionality of the handles require some familiarization.

The display is cool, but some features could be better implemented, like changing speed in Autopilot mode.

According to Ashley Carman, the Model 3 interior doesn’t feel like other cars in the $60,000 price tag range. Some parts look cheap. On the other hand, Marques Brownlee says he would prefer a fully equipped Model 3 over the Model S (though he’s never driven a base Model S, so he’s not so sure of himself in this assessment).

Stupid Video

Shouldn’t the screen be dark (night mode) since it is dark outside? Being that bright in the dark is very distracting.

Woman says interior doesn’t feel like a $60,000 car. That’s because it’s really the interior of a $31,500 car. It would look exactly the same inside if you bought the SR Model 3 at $35,000 and bought the premium interior for $5,000 minus the $7,500 tax incentive. Adding the LR battery and all of the autopilot and full autonomous package and the expensive wheels has nothing to do about the interior. But that’s besides the point. I think the problem is that the people that think the interior isn’t luxurious enough in the 3 and even the S have a preconceived idea of what luxury is. If you touched the wood or the plastic of the dash in a similar in class BMW in isolation it would feel and seem just as cheap to her. It’s just that most people don’t see it for all the buttons, knobs and gauges and multiple busy layers and swoops of the dash form that make it look fancy in their eyes. It ultimately comes down to preference. A similar analogy is architecture. The average person would prefer a home that is built as a modern representation of the nostalgic past with lots of… Read more »

He’s says that he isn’t sure he’s comfortable about locking in with a screen tablet he’ll be stuck with when it will be obsolete in 10 years because he likes to get new phones like every 15 minutes.


So he likes to buy new phones all the time but keeps cars for 10 years? A majority of people don’t keep cars 10 years but either way this non-problem he poses won’t be unique to Tesla. All the touchscreens that come in every single new car will have this problem. Is he concerned that the crappy touch screen in a Lexus will be obsolete in 10 years?

Loved the video…good nuggets of information too.
