At the wheel of the Tesla Model 3!

Unless you were born after the beginning of this millennium, Elon Musk, boss of Tesla, did not create the Model 3 for you. He created it for kids who will learn to drive even though they have never experienced a world without a touchscreen phone, wireless internet or streaming video.

Sliding behind the wheel of the Model 3 returns to playing the most stylish driving simulations. The interior is spacious and bright, thanks to a panoramic rear window that rises above the heads of the rear passengers. Similarly, it overlooks such tacky equipment as a key or a start button, since the car awakens when approaching your smartphone. Small buttons on the steering wheel allow you to adjust the steering wheel, and everything else is controlled by the large 15-inch touch screen in the middle of the center console.

A steering wheel, two pedals, a big screen, and that’s all: the dashboard of the Tesla Model 3 marks a break with the usual codes of the automobile.

Even if you work all day in front of a computer, finding the same interface in a car is a confusing experience. Thus, the place where your eyes will land to look for the speedometer is limited to a piece of sanded wood. Likewise, you will only find plastic where you instinctively search the controls for the air conditioning or audio system. However, regardless of the beauty of the cards on the screen or the ease with which you can download a podcast, a touch screen will never be as fast and intuitive as opening a ventilation nozzle of a simple hand movement …

In terms of performance, and even ignoring the famous “ludicrous mode” that pushes up the adrenaline rate of the drivers of the Model S, the Model 3 is as easy and fun as its big sister. Caress the accelerator and the car goes into action with enthusiasm. The management is accurate and the road holding of a good insurance, which allows this Tesla to survey the turns with enthusiasm and to swallow the ways of acceleration with authority.

As with any electric car, simply releasing the accelerator slows the car down, while charging the battery. In fact, this engine brake is quite powerful and requires a time of adaptation. But it allows to increase the autonomy of the car and, once well mastered, to ride in town rarely using the left pedal.

Of course, the ultimate goal of Elon Musk is to see us all ride in town without touching any pedal. As a result, all Model 3s are equipped with anti-collision sensors, which can trigger emergency stops if necessary. To which is added of course a more advanced version of the famous Autopilot system, reference in driving assistance.
