Two Days With The Tesla Model 3 (Made Me Want The Model S)

Fun fact: a Tesla Model 3 preview was one of the first two videos published by the MrMobile YouTube channel back in 2016! What's more: I've never gotten over that experience. The skin-stretching acceleration; the futuristic features; the fact that it never needed a drop of gasoline – to a guy just starting a YouTube tech channel, Tesla's Model S and Model X were the ultimate manifestation of mobile technology, and the Model 3 promised much of the same experience in a more affordable package.

Flash-forward to 2018: that Tesla Model 3 is finally rolling off the production line … and I’ve just spent two days behind the wheel. Not enough time for a review, but enough to get a sense of how many promises it delivers on. Watch the MrMobile extended Tesla Model 3 test drive to see where it succeeds, where it falls flat ... and why it makes me want a Model S more than anything else.

MrMobile's Tesla Model 3 Test Drive was produced following two days with a production Tesla Model 3. The test car included the extended battery, premium interior package, 19" sport wheels, enhanced autopilot and midnight silver finish. Price as tested: $56,500. The Model 3 received one software update immediately following the test drive.

Hey y'all. Couple Model 3 observations I couldn't squeeze into this video: -Yep, panel lines are a problem. Inconsistent, asymmetrical, too broad at points. Easy to miss if you're not looking for them, but tough to un-see once you've seen 'em. -I'm amazed at how quickly I got used to checking for the speed on the monitor instead of hunting for the instrument cluster. Still miss that HUD though. -Part of the Premium Interior package is the inclusion of two USB ports for the backseaters. Cool, but both that set and the ones up front lack fast charging of any kind. Sad. -Hazard light toggle is one of the few controls that merits a physical button. It's up top, by the rearview mirror. -Seats are plenty comfy and interior is plenty nice (again, with the Premium Interior package). -Only way to open the back doors is with a button. Fine, but what happens if you lose power? -The trunk really takes a good slam to get it shut, which is kind of weird considering how delicate you have to be with the center console flap. -More impressions as I review my notes! Questions? Ask!

I just can't get myself to like the dash in the model 3. It's too oversimplified for me, with just that single screen for everything. I much prefer the dash in the model S to be honest. I like having a dedicated instrument cluster right in front of me with additional information. :)

When you say, "to be honest," does that mean that some of what you're saying is not honest? The S model does not come with free charging, it is more honestly considered prepaid charging. Make sure you consider the new battery cost when you do your used S model video. It would be nice to see a base model review, I'll keep looking.

Not even the model 3 is affordable. They need to be cheaper. Build quality is also garbage on these things

Mr. Mobile - do you realize that Tesla model 3 is using all 8 cameras , EACH with Independent processing, that's more Processing power than Cadallic, and even AUDI autopliots. and the Cadallic doesn't even work.

Mark Plott

Mark Plott . 4 months ago

Mr. Mobile - Autopilot v9.0 is NOT for Driving on Roads or Streets. Autopilot right NOW is just for Automatically getting on Highways and Getting off. beyond that you are VOIDING the Warranty. and may end up in a CRASH.

I think the model 3 is a very nice car, but the model S has more class and road presence. Both good - depends on your priorities.


6806goats1 . 4 months ago

Pass. Front design and dash layout are automatic kick out. Time to see what the S has to offer. Thanks for the review.


Bonedatt . 4 months ago

So.. At 1:05 I'm saying to myself, *why is this fool in the trunk of the car* and then weirdly you have this look like.. what? 😂 😂. Scariest shit ever #MrMindReader

When is M3 for 35k will be available?


leneanderthalien . 4 months ago

The model 3 is a very nice car, the only thing i dont like, is the small trunk oppening door made like 70' Citroën cars (GS and CX)...why not a real hatchback like the Model S?

J Gallis

J Gallis . 5 months ago

Did you get the model s Mr mobile?


bobcharlotte . 5 months ago

Florida looks so nice.

Truth Seeker

Truth Seeker . 5 months ago

not everybody would have the luxury to want the model S, which is what the M3 is solving with the 35k model. just a classic clickbait title to get more views, but all good for Tesla nonetheless..

1:24 - ...'the lack of even a false grill'... What the hell do you want a false grill for? It's an electric car, it has no radiator. (well only a small one for the battery fluid). For those that want it to look like a conventional I/C engine car; perhaps buy a sporty coupe, fit a super-quiet muffler and stick a badge on the trunk that says "electric car". That way you get performance, range, and a radiator grill :-)

when is your M3 full review due Mr Mobile?


DIOSpeedDemon . 6 months ago

Now I see there are videos in the news with the Tesla Cars Rear Bumber FALLS OFF within an hour of owning the car? But what do you Tesla Rubes expect for 150,000$ car??? I am sure a software fix will make the bumper magically appear again.

When you said without the hatchback you get an almost all glass roof but we have an s and are roof is all glass no divider

Tough decision model 3 current options and no autopilot vs used 2015 S 85. 3 is new, $7500+2500(California) or S with supercharge and autopilot already included

Sure, you compare used 2013 model S with practically no warranty (whatever left), no autopilot with price of model 3 with better mileage, autopilot and full warranty. Go ahead, buy model S.

oldrrocr . 8 months ago

Thanks for the vid. Since you don't own a car now, perhaps you also don't own a house or live somewhere that has access to 220 v 40 amp. Most Model 3 people, I expect, are not going to use superchargers unless they are driving somewhere out of their range (200 miles). They'll just plug it in and let it charge overnight for 1/4 the cost of a gas fill-up. (For me it is free - yep, got solar panels). Also, for some of us having a full size car like the S is a luxury we don't want. You failed to mention that the Model 3 actually has MORE cabin space than the S model. I really considered buying a used S but the Tesla guys couldn't or wouldn't deal on it - so it was considerably more expensive than the Model 3.

How is paying for your own go-juice a "sacrifice"?, especially since it's dirt cheap, compared to the built into the price of the X&S. No one gives me free gas when i drop $60-70 a week, and i'm not crying about it. All these previous tesla drivers were spoiled like children, they never should have offered it free to begin with.
