Tesla, definitely, does not do much like everyone else. For its Model 3 , the American manufacturer first markets the most expensive versions: one is called Great autonomy and costs 59,500 €, the other Performance ( our test model ) and goes up to 70,300 €. Far from the $ 35,000 first mentioned by Elon Musk to extol the merits of his mass-market model.
But it is as if Audi, to launch its new generation of A4 , began with the RS4: it would not be the cheapest or the most representative of the range.
Our test model , the most expensive so, is announced by Tesla at 3.5 seconds for the 0 to 100 km / h. For comparison, an Audi RS4 takes 4.1 s for the same exercise, 4 seconds for a C63 AMG S.
