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

Published on 1 year ago

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 own a dual motor, long range model 3. It is the most fun thing I have EVER bought.

Imagine if we can change the processor of that infotainment system so something like a 4 cores 8 thread core i5. How fluid it will look...

I will most likely buy a Tesla w.i. (1) year. Leaning toward Model S because: 1) Road noise, 2) Range and the feel of a larger car. Cost is always a concern but you live only once. Why Tesla for me? I think Tesla has the closest thing to level 3 autonomy available. Comments are welcome.

I just picked up a Model 3 SR+, I'm a little disappointed in the ride quality, pretty bouncy and rough and a lot more road noise than I expected.

I wonder if your wife complains about you as much as you complained about this car that didn't satisfy your needs? You should do your research before you put out a video on a vehicle that is changing the real world around us.

At 3:47, the left stalk doesn't control the windshield wipers (well, there is a button on the end that will make it wipe once, and also controls the wiper fluid spray). Turning the wipers on so that they stay on continuously is controlled by the touchscreen. I don't like this, but it can be made easier by pressing the button on the end of the left stalk once, which will cause the controls for the wipers to open in the touchscreen interface so that you don't have to fiddle with menus to access them.

Tesla has done a great job and pushing the industry forward, which has been the ONLY goal. Yes they want to make money and dominate, but the real goal was the push. We need more industry pushes towards the future. But what they have not done is provide value. That was the implication early on and into the lead in of the Model 3, but they have decided to pull back on several issues. Using a 10K grab for autonomous driving is a perfect example. It's all psychological, they create price points based on what the market will bear, and there are those early adopters who will pay whatever it takes to get what they want. That is fine. But Tesla needs to be a little more conscious of the fact that people pay attention to promises and its a turnoff when they don't. They will survive if they go into the utility market, more room, space and usefulness of your vehicle. I want to see autonomous ride shares for trips. Just summon a Tesla and go with your friend on a 300 mile trip without having to drive. People would travel a lot more if this were possible.

The model x and s interface is incredibly laggy. The model 3 is butter smooth in comparison

Great review, but one thing "drove" me nuts (corny pun intended): That turn at (4:44) was illegal as fuck. At least here in OH, you have to turn into the closest lane, THEN switch lanes over.

If I had $56,000 to spend on a car I don't think I would get a model 3 either. It's for people who only want to spend around 30 or 40 thousand.

So at 9:08...the ELEPHANT in the room....Model 3 for $35 K ??? You'll never see it......and your conclusion that at $57 K you are approaching used Model S territory begs the question , what happens when you purchase that used Model S for $57 K but are soon faced with a $12 K cost to replace the battery pack ??? That's why Teslas will always remain a toy for the rich....the vision of "democratizing the EV" will only happen with the Chinese (Kandi) and Koreans who will soon be supplying truly affordable, well made EV's for the masses....Faced with a choice between the questionable build quality and expense of a Model 3 vs an Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti Sport....I'll take the Alfa all day long and put $15 K in my pocket and that buys me a lot of gas....FORZA ALFA BABY !!!!

Dino Pappous

Dino Pappous . 7 months ago

Nice presentation....a few points to consider... 1) Don't believe Tesla can make a $35 K Model 3....profit margins are not there 2) Center laptop can't be safe or intuitive to use while driving....total techy gimmick....sorry...Why would I want to fumble through menus when all I need is a button to turn on the heat or A/C ? 3) Build Quality issues abound with this company....and they are headed for true affordable competition from established Korean and Chinese EV makers...

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

Buy the cheap model 3 then save for a roadster 👌👌 or gift me one either is cool 😂😅

The wooden dash looks cheap and tacky. It looks like an Ikea clearance item

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 . 10 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.


6806goats1 . 10 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.

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?


analyste . 11 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 . 11 months ago

Did you get the model s Mr mobile?


bobcharlotte . 11 months ago

Florida looks so nice.

Truth Seeker

Truth Seeker . 12 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..
