The Tesla Model 3 is probably one of the most talked about vehicles in the past two years.

That's because of two things.

First, it is the vehicle that will essentially catapult Tesla into profitability — at least that was the original thinking. Second, it was created to be a BMW 3-Series competitor and the Model 3 is more modestly priced than the Model S and Model X that can run into the six figures.

But it hasn't been smooth sailing. From the Elon Musk-described "production hell," to the suspect build quality, the Model 3 hasn't had an easy ride so far.

So, what does a traditional, enthusiast-focused publication make of all this? See below as Autocar dives into the Model 3.



Tasked with taking the Californian company into uncharted territory when it comes to sales volume, this Audi/BMW/Mercedes-rivalling sedan is based on a new architecture, has a 300+ mile range and an affordable price - from $35,000 in the US, before options (of which the big battery is one).

We head, then, to California to try it out, on roads that represent the narrower, more interesting Tarmac than America’s wide highways. Places where cars like the BMW 3-Series are design to excel. How does the Model 3 shape up against the world’s best executive cars?
