Tesla Model 3 Review

Price: £43,490 to £54,490

Tesla’s best car yet is also its most affordable and has a great range. Safe, fast, technologically advanced and cheaper to run than an Audi A4.

“The Model 3 is basically what most people wanted: a smaller, comparatively affordable Tesla which opens the brand up to more of us. In the same way that Apple created a mythology around their products, you don't just buy a Tesla, you buy into a whole lifestyle.”

“I love the simple high-tech interior that does away switches and buttons, Tesla lead when it comes to tech. Their excellent supercharging network is a bonus other car makers can’t match and the Model 3 finally feels like a Tesla built to a good standard.”

Don’t expect to see many used Model 3s on the market for a while - owners will want to keep hold of them.

Used Models

Owners who put their name down on a waiting list for the Model 3 two years ago are now receiving their cars, and are unlikely to want to part with them anytime soon. At the time of writing there weren’t any ex-demonstrator cars listed on the official Tesla website either. However, a few cheeky non-Tesla dealers are advertising used cars for above the list price of a new Model 3. The cheapest had a mark up of £7,500 over the price of a brand new car. To pay that you’d need to be really keen to get hold of one quickly though, as supply to the UK is now free-flowing and the waiting list has almost evaporated. Tesla is quoting a new order delivery date of around eight weeks for all versions of the Model 3, so expect these speculative used prices to come down quickly as the novelty of the Model 3 wears off.
