We had the opportunity to test the 2019 Tesla Model 3 with a passenger tour of the company’s demonstrator and we can confirm that the performance should be really impressive. The two engine, four wheel drive model we tested seemed significantly faster than the promised 0-62 km / h time of less than six seconds. He seemed very stable in the corners, no doubt, helped by electric motors and small batteries.
Exterior and Interior
2019 Tesla Model 3 already has a long appearance as a coupe, so jumping to a five door with all the law should not be too difficult, at least aesthetically speaking. In terms of engineering, it’s probably a very different story, but in terms of appearance, the hatch should be quite similar to the sedan. At the front, the nose will not have a grille or entry, because the car does not have the same need for fresh air as something that works with an internal combustion engine. The headlights will be installed on the front wings, with the LEDs used for lighting. The LEDs will also be used for the lower daytime running lights, which will appear as strips along the bumper. All the fascia will remember a bit of a Porsche product. The front projection will also be very short, improving the athletic form of the car. Moving sideways, there are huge rollers, distinctive design, which fill the holes of the wheels, with a triangular lamp used to mark the mudguard. The lines of characters and windows are slanted, which gives the car an aggressive and torn position. The door handles are aligned with the sheet, reducing drag. The roofline is where we start to see bigger differences, with the hatch extending outward at a flatter angle compared to the sedan. The only sheet of glass is now segmented, starting with a rear roof spoiler mounted on a new transverse support beam placed higher up on the trunk. Going down the hatch, we see more aerodynamic improvements, as well as rear lights that wrap the rear side panels. Although the sedan is not necessarily ugly, I think the 3 Hatchback model is simply a more natural fit for the smaller Tesla, especially if it means a significantly improved cargo space. And although the only glass that goes from the windshield to the trunk of the sedan is good enough, I think it would be better to put more things in the back.
Of course, one of the most important features of a 2019 Tesla Model 3 hatchback model should be an increase in cargo space. The next 2019 Tesla Model 3 sedan has two trunks, one at the front and one at the rear, and a hatchback model would expand the latter with more space behind for larger and larger items. But how much space are we talking about? Well, just watch a rival EV sedan to get an idea. The Chevy Bolt, for example, offers nearly 17 cubic feet at the rear, which is a decent amount for a compact vehicle. Expect something similar at Tesla if you plan to be competitive in this regard. Take a folding rear seat (the S model already has a 60/40 split), and it is likely to fit much more than a surfboard, if necessary. Fold up the seats and look for seating for up to five passengers, as well as enough food to feed them all. In terms of appearance and design, the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback model will have the same cab as the sedan, with minimal design control and spacious design. All the buttons, buttons, and switches you expect from a car will be replaced by a huge 15 inch center console mounted touch screen, where the driver and passenger can change the information and entertainment system configuration and air conditioning. see various disk configurations. One of the distinguishing features of Tesla is its autopilot mode, which offers autonomous and semi autonomous driving depending on the situation. Like the 2019 Tesla Model 3 sedan, I expect the basic features of the autopilot (safety such as automatic braking and lane departure assistance) to be standard, while other practical features will be optional.
The first is based on the limited information provided during the presentation of the car at the end of March. The base of 2019 Tesla Model 3 will be RWD, will offer 215 miles of range and will reach 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. This means that you can use a 40 kWh battery and a single electric motor. With all wheel drive models and larger batteries, high specification models will benefit from more power, speed and reach. We are thinking of a 60kWh option for mid range adjustment, with a distance of 250 miles and a 60mph run in 5 seconds. At the top of the stack, there will be a 70 kWh double disc drive with a range of nearly 300 miles and a 0 to 60 mph time in 4 seconds. All models will be compatible with the Tesla Supercharger network as standard.
Price and Release Date
The first British 2019 Tesla Model 3 are expected to be delivered in 2019. The British price has not yet been confirmed, but we expect British car prices to start in the £ 40,000 region, but that assumes that the British government will continue to offer a subsidy to private buyers of electric cars. However, the Tesla website in the United Kingdom invites buyers to make a deposit of GBP 1,000. Customers will receive regular updates on a “My Tesla” web page and, as production approaches, they will have access to an online configurator to choose the color and options.
