Tesla model 3: a great car. We already have the model s which we also love.

The car drives great. The ride is very smooth. Has fantastic get up and go. It is very quiet, as are all electric cars. The company service is great. Updates are sent electronically and frequently. I love the screen / dashboard. It shows everything you need to know about the car. It even has the whole owners manual on the screen.

- Frances S

Sleek and futuristic electric car of the future, saves gas.

My vehicle is very sleek and looks modern. Its performance on the road is also very smooth, as it is an electric car. It is also very comfortable and comes with a variety of useful features, including a touch screen with all of the controls. It seems very reliable, as there have been no problems so far.

- Samuel X

Tesla is a great car.

The best thing about tesla is their technology. They do firmware update periodically so you can drive a car with up-to date technology even though you bought it a while ago. Their autopilot technology is not perfect yet but great enough and keep improving. I cannot drive any other car.
