First Tesla Model 3 Customers Bless Us With Detailed Walkthrough


Now that Tesla and Space X employee orders have been filled, it’s time for regular people to get their cars.

Unless you live in the more populated California cities, chances are slim you’ve seen a Tesla Model 3 roaming the streets. Even though Elon Musk personally delivered 30 examples to customers at the car’s unveiling, these went to Tesla and Space X employees who had put in reservations. And now that employees are happy, it’s time for the trickle of Model 3s to make it to the mainstream customers. Aside from a special advanced delivery for a customer with terminal cancer, this couple claims to have gotten the first non-employee Model 3.

As luck would have it, they recorded the entire pickup experience, giving us a glimpse into what it feels like to get their hands on a car that’s supposed to change the world as well as letting us see some parts of the car not yet revealed to the majority of the world.

For example, we already know what the interior will look like but had yet to see how the panoramic roof makes it feel so spacious. Also new is the Bluetooth-enabled key system that uses an owner's phone, allowing for effective pocket consolidation. Basically the Model 3 is a lot like a new iPhone. It does everything an older car can do but in a way that’s slightly more refined and covered with just enough sheen of newness to get the masses riled up. For Tesla, the finished product seems to be a huge win simply because the Model 3 takes what’s best about the Model S and makes it more affordable. It’s almost comedic that other automakers haven’t yet made cars that can compete with the Model 3 in terms of price, range, and style.
