Tesla Model 3 Considered “Car of the Decade”

Wheels 24 recently posted an article discussing why the Tesla Model 3 is the absolute 'car of the decade.’ According to author Lance Branquinho, “it is a vehicle of strange contradictions. By the time Tesla had finally managed to deliver its Model 3 to customers in late 2017, the market for mid-size sedan cars had shrunk dramatically. Despite this, Tesla’s Model 3 has proven boundlessly popular, with surging global demand.”

Wheels 24 recently posted an article discussing why the Tesla Model 3 is the absolute ‘car of the decade.’ According to author Lance Branquinho, “it is a vehicle of strange contradictions. By the time Tesla had finally managed to deliver its Model 3 to customers in late 2017, the market for mid-size sedan cars had shrunk dramatically. Despite this, Tesla’s Model 3 has proven boundlessly popular, with surging global demand.”

According to Branquinho, its popularity is due to the vehicle’s “unrivalled” fundamental engineering. “Not even the most technically regarded German brands have managed to produce something with comparable performance or originality of design in terms of powertrain. Tesla’s batteries might be Panasonic’s doing, as part of a joint venture, but the electric motors are their own design and absolute genius.”

The article goes on to use Munro’s assessment of the Model 3 to further his assertion: “Engineers who have dissembled the Model 3, most notably American powertrain specialist, Sandy Munro, quickly discovered that although the bodywork design was poor, everything else is decades ahead. Much like a smartphone, almost any issue with a Model 3 can be diagnosed and remedied by over-the-air updates, which completely revolutionizes the convenience of ownership. You don’t need to seek a dealership to plug-in for diagnostics or wait for an afternoon to hear what the fault code is.”
