- Electric Motor
A car that does not run on gas, Tesla Model 3. An electric motor is the heart of the car, all you need to do is charge it. So don’t forget to charge your car!
From 0 to 60kmph in 2.8 seconds! So what if it has an electric motor to it, it’s fast. And you thought only a Ferrari could go that fast. The Model 3 will come in both rear wheel and all-wheel drive.
A touchscreen sums it all. The brain of the car is a 17inch touchscreen which controls all the functions of the Model 3. Maps, media, drive control, climate control, energy control and auto pilot just a touch away. Oh it has WiFi and internet connectivity too!
