Just watched a Top Gear edition we recorded while in France, they featured electric cars, including making their own!
They tested the Tesla model 3, the faster one with two motors rather than the £40K ordinary one.
It is seriously quick, beating a BMW M3 and AMG Merc up to around 100mph where the petrol cars took over.
Then electric motors have huge torque instantly there!

Handling not too bad either.They reckoned the 200 mile range was ok for most users!
Some good technology in it, but a bit bland looking.
No mention of towing obviously.

I really don't know what I'm going to do until the Model Y arrives.

Really must get a more interesting fascination.

Just in case you have not seen the news, the Tesla Model 3 has been awarded the overall winner for “Car Of The Year” for 2019 by Auto Express.

For a car firm that has only been in business for just 16 years, this is a totally amazing achievement, no doubt other car car makers are scratching there heads.

The Tesla Model 3 now the car of the year for 2019 is a definite wake up call for all the legacy car makers.

Whose ever head’s they are scratching, they all need to wake up and smell the coffee.

The days of the fossil car are numbered, that’s for sure and anyone buying a fossil car needs there bumps feeling.

The days of towing caravans and driving around in motor homes will soon come to and end, only to return in a few years time, when the tech improves.

So a UK magazine believes the Tesla 3 to be “Car of the Year”

What about the others, ie What Car, Top Gear, Car Wow, Parker’s, Car Buyer, Auto Trader, or of course the main one World Car Awards.

Anyone with an interest in cars know the Jaguar i Pace rules the world at the moment, with the Tesla 3 not even close.

The Tesla 3 is NOT the car of the year for 2019, the Jaguar i Pace is. The Tesla 3 is the car of the year according to a couple of people who work for a UK magazine. Slightly different.

How did the Tesla 3 do in the “World Car Awards”.........🤔

Francais, if you are going to post such totally one sided rubbish, then make it remotely credible. You are fooling no one.

The days of the fossil car are numbered, really! I think we all know that, but please tell me how a huge chunk of electricity is produced in the UK..........Yep, fossil fuels.

Because it is more efficient to generate large scale in a power plant and distribute the energy via transmission lines than individual fossil fuel, causes less pollution overall.

How many MPG do you get from your printer, what is the 0 to 60 time and what weight can it tow?

If it is an issue of pollution, take a look at the mining, manufacturing and disposal of Lithium-Ion batteries...........That is what you call environmentally harmful pollution.

Electric vehicle development is in its' infancy, major changes in the recycling of lithium batteries is being proposed as is the method of producing Lithium.

Look Mike3003, please don’t shoot the messenger, I only mentioned that the Tesla Model 3 has been awarded overall car of the year for 2019 by Auto Express because it has, it could have been any magazine for all I care.

The naysers are now trying to tell folk that BEV’s are polluting as well, because of the particles given of from the disc brake pad residue, and residue from the tyres wearing, they are a bunch of plonkers as they don’t realise that regenerative braking on a BEV leads to very little brake pad wear, and as we already know cars especially fossil cars as there is a lot off them, have tyres that wear out.

Here I am sat in my firms Diesel car parked in a ASDA car park, engine running and air con on for over an hour cos it’s quite warm outside.

Had I been in a BEV I could have parked up without having to kill anyone.

In a road test by What Car they concluded that the Tesla 3 was better than the Jaguar I pace!
