There are many ways to compare cars. In most cases, if you have limited yourself to a specific body style and price range (vehicle class), there is little difference between the options.
Toyota Camry Vs. Honda Accord Vs. Nissan Altima – what is really the difference? BMW 3er vs. Audi A4 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class? Again, the differences are largely due to the style or minor variations in the characteristics.
The Tesla Model 3 opposite one of these cars is a completely different game.
The acceleration of Model 3 is from the chain. You can look at the 0-60 mph and see that the Model 3 outperforms the competition by any means, but even that's not true.
I'm sure the 0-30 mph (which is much more relevant for normal daily driving) looks even better on the Model 3, as well as at 0-15mph.
The key is that it's all about the moment. Electric cars have it. Gasmobiles not There is simply no comparison between an electric car and a gas car. The Tesla Model 3 takes it to another amazing level thanks to Tesla's obsessive effort to break acceleration records.
The Short Story: If you care about acceleration, the Tesla Model wins 3.  19659007]
Side Note: For Camry, Accord and Altima there are a number of different ornaments. I tried to find the panels that best fit the Tesla Model 3 in terms of performance and features.
Drive / Ride Quality
This is a rather subjective but a great feature. Ride quality and ride quality are important for long-term luck with the car. However, you can not really compare an electric car with a gasoline car. Electric cars benefit from a super quiet and supple powertrain – no rumbling, mumbling or mumbling.
Tesla controls the vehicle technology so well that the model 3 feels like a racing car. The car has excellent weight distribution, traction control and suspension, which together make up one of the most enjoyable rides or rides on the market at a surprisingly affordable price.
The Tesla Model 3 is second to none when it comes to NHTSA's detailed safety ratings. The NHTSA does not announce this because it holds generic star ratings, but it publishes the basic data and this has shown that the Model 3 has the least likelihood of injury ever logged by NHTSA testers. And it's not even close.
The Tesla Model S and the Model X are # 2 and # 3, respectively, and wherever the next competitor of the Model 3 is, we know exactly that it is one or five paces less than the Model 3.
If you thought that electric cars like the Model 3 had an advantage in the above areas, you have not seen anything yet. Electric cars are several times more efficient than gasoline or diesel cars. Gasoline / diesel engines only waste enormous energy, while electric motors are very efficient. At the end of the day, fuel economy savings on Tesla vehicles that look like they do not belong to the same ratings as their petrol rivals are important.
The Tesla Model 3 offers a different age and tech type than the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. For many of us, the Model 3 feels like a "vehicle of the 21st century," while others feel like "vehicles of the 20th century." For others, it is the technology of the 20th century.
All in all, if you think about Tesla autopilot. The brilliant navigation system, the music player options, the Easter eggs and the huge touchscreen. I think the Model 3 is back in the A-League, while the others are in the C-League. But this is clearly one of the areas where individual preferences just diverge.
I drive a 71-mile electric car (2015 BMW i3 REx), have no charging station and consider the car as more comfortable than a gasoline car. All I have to do is connect the car when I come to the shop, the mall, the park or the beach. I also get guaranteed parking in good locations. The connection takes a few seconds – and my 4-year-old daughter actually loves being the one to do the plugging and unplugging. I almost never have to go to a smelly, dirty, expensive gas station, which is a great relief and … Convenience .
The Model 3 is even better than my previous BMW i3 because it offers hundreds of miles of range (instead of 71) and can be quickly charged even on road trips or at other times (via Tesla Superchargers). Oh, and if you charge at home and / or at work, the entire experience with electric cars becomes almost thoughtless.
While there has been a lot of hype about "range anxiety" in the last decade, I'm upset about 7 years, where such coverage usually misses the point – never having to go to a gas station is a bigger advantage as the disadvantage of occasionally must use a public charging station that brakes you. The latter may occur naturally, but the net result of possession of electric vehicles is usually more more convenience, not less.
The tables divided above articles show the prices at the box office as well as the costs after estimated savings over 6 years (by subsidies and by dispensing with gasoline).
The key point is that the Tesla Model 3 Standard and the Tesla Model 3 Standard Plus are cost-effective Honda Accord and Nissan Altima, taking into account the estimated savings. The shocking thing is that you get so much more for essentially the same long-term price.
In terms of the Toyota Camry XSE V6, you can actually get a Model 3 Mid Range or Model 3 Long essentially for the same cost – if Tesla's estimated savings fit your situation or if you could get even more savings (many buyers thanks to state and non-profit subsidies or because they drive a lot or pay more for gasoline).
Of course it makes no sense to pay more for extra range (more batteries) if you do not need that extra range. I would personally choose the Model 3 Standard Plus and then happily pocket thousands of dollars compared to buying a Camry XSE V6 that you remember is slower, less secure, less technical, less driveable and less comfortable than one Model 3 Standard or Model 3 Standard Plus.
Of course, there are many subjective factors involved in buying a car. The model 3 is not suitable for everyone. However, it attacks the high-end options of Camry, Accord and Altima so much that it's difficult to understand why anyone would opt for one of them if they could get a Model 3.
If you have not followed Tesla's news closely Note, however, that the prices of all model 3 models will increase next week, except for the basics. If you want to get the best deal on a Model 3 Standard Plus, medium range, large range or high performance, you only have a few days left to make the decision and click the blue Order button to give up". No pressure. Just say.
