Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

S3XY ?

Next cars will probably be model M, followed by O, then T, H etc etc...

Talking about sexy EVs, the urban EV from Honda looks good. They had a nice concept last year and have taken it further towards production, should be on the Geneva show.
Dont really know how to link a picture here with my tablet, sorry.

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

Yes, S3XY. Read his biography from a few years back, it mentions that as the target.

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

I picked up my car yesterday and LOVE the driving experience. The open view without an instrument display is great and it took me all of 10 seconds to get used to the speedometer being to the right on the screen. The delivery hall was full of cars and there were three transporters being offloaded so these cars will become ubiquitous soon.

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

I am very sorry, if that has already been covered previously - what are other financial advantages of owning Model 3 (or any other e-car)? I.e. lower road tax (how much?), something else? Thanks!

The „road tax“ - number plates are free. If a London-style congestion charge is introduced, EVs are free. I found insurance was cheaper than expected. It cost (when you pay) about CHF per 400kms to „fill up“.
At the moment Tesla Model 3 are for sale at CHF2000 over new price on Autoscout24. I very much doubt they will get anything like that. Delivery is now March for orders placed now and new prices are falling...

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

Road tax is 'free' for now, until EV become ubiquitous, and the government just needs the tax income.

I for one am jealous and would love an EV, but use my car not for commuting to work but across Europe travel. Also, being Dutch, I am more cheap than the Scottish so find EVs too expensive at the moment. The Honda EV hatchback style prototype looks really good to me, the M3 is a bit too 'big Americam sedan' for mt European taste. But I really see the appeal and wish you guys many happy km's !

Buy a Model S like this cheap Scot, then you can drive anywhere in Europe for free using the supercharger network - surely the Dutch bit of you loves this

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

Was visiting my sister in the US, drove around in her Model X - lots of lovely features and loved the panoramic roof.


Might seem random but gotta say I am disappointed there is no HUD in any of the Tesla models - a feature I have grown to really appreciate in our current hybrid

Guy I work with cancelled his Model 3 order based on this. I've driven the odd car with it and I think having something in the windscreen is a bit annoying, but each to their own. You don't need to look at the console all that often in my experience, so not such a huge issue.

Agreed HUD (head up display) would be to my mind an essential (option) on all Teslas and fit in with their technoledgical ethos. That said the Model 3‘s eccentric speedo on a screen to the right is not a problem...

it can if you put a HUD sticker on the windscreen, a special semi reflective thing, but, that will then fail the MFK lol

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

Out of curiosity did tesla offer you a trade inprice for your car or did you organise it yourself? I'm hesitating but plan to re-asses once the super charger in Chatel St Denis opens.

Did you notice and build defects?

Re: Tesla Model 3 Fan Boy Thread

Tesla offer a not-as-bad-as-expected trade in. If you have experience of buying a new car and what you expect and what you are offered then you‘ll be prepared. Tesla‘s offer was better than a dealer would have given me - but stilll nothing like I really wanted.

Defects: charge flap doesn‘t close properly and so is difficult to open by simply pressing the flap. But opens with app and from in car and with charger. Noted at handover and to be fixed with a visit from Tesla.

I wouldn‘t worry about a local supercharger unless you live in an apartment with no available normal plug access. At the moment I have charged only from a normal socket in my garage = 11 kms/hour. Tesla will connector on the way....

This is exactly the reason I want a local supercharger. I can charge in work but at home I have nothing unless I run a cable out the window and over the path to the car (which I'm sure someone would complain about).

Thanks for the info
