Tesla Model 3 Performance 2021 review: see how quick it is 0-60mph... And easy to drift!

Need help buying your next car? Click www.carwow.co.uk/help-me-carwow and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
Thanks to Richard Symons for lending us his Model 3 Performance - ltclub.info/round/hjqM-6MiqlF3qUq4GMVhkg
Mat’s got his hands on a new Tesla Model 3 Performance... And he's here to share a truly in-depth review with you!
As you’d expect from the name, the Model 3 Performance is one EV which can compete with the best when it’s on the road. With dual electric motors, it can put down 462hp and 639Nm of torque… That’s 96hp & 130Nm more than the Model 3 Long Range! Not only that, but its claimed range is only 8 miles shy of what the long range can achieve, too!
Of course, such performance from an electric car won’t come cheap, and you can expect to pay over £57,000 for one. So there’s just one question left… Is it worth it? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

  • Is this model 3 performance produced in US? Which battery is used in 2021 Tesla model 3 performance, LG or Panasonic? Looks like the car produced in China is different from the one imported, as the former’s battery turn to yellow warning much sooner in track mode, and this mode would last longer compared to the overseas model 3 performance, meanwhile the power is probably limited

  • tesla took all the information screen from the drive side and changing every control to the one big tablet in the center and even providing Netflix and games, this shows that tesla is taking away the "driving part" from the cars to self-driving day by day. I think this is evil because driving is awesome.

  • 9:35 That thing about the rims is unbelievably wrong. I understand that it's much cheaper to copy-paste the same rim, but, it's wrong and seriously OCD triggering. In this case it can affect negatively the dynamics of the airflow, causing more drag from one side, something that can cause serious problems on very slippery roads and high speeds, among other aspects. Do they also wear pairs of same-side shoes? I've seen this stupidity from brands too many times, it seriously needs to stop.

  • For me personally, there is nothing appealing about this car, or any other Tesla car that I've seen so far. I feel like they are too reliant on computers and flashy gadgets. I think having so many of the car's controls (and entertainment) on a big screen is going to promote careless driving, and also, I think that in 5-10 years, we will find out that these cars will become quite unreliable and have expensive repair costs.

  • I see some moisture inside the headlights...this is where Tesla should improve. The whole project is sensational, assembly and quality are not at the same level. Look at the paint, looks like an orange skin, it's crispy ...not a good sign. I'm considering to buy one of these (and probabilly i'll do) , but damn, even a crappy brand as BMW , dead starting from 2005 after the E46, does better. Anyway, i'll add 10.000€ to the price for a proper KW suspension kit (Variante 3, 2.500€), wheels ( OZ Leggera HLT 19'' instead of 20'' stock 2.000€), tires (Michelin Sport Pilot Cup 2 255/40-19, 700€) and upgraded brake system ( Brembo GT-R kit, over 3.500€).

  • Until 4:42 all good till you get to the part when you really ask why Tesla i cant press a button to change my steering wheel and need to use the so call Ipad?? , Well Tesla isn't a German car and unlike German car brands if you do notice they like to put buttons for their every (almost) functions, its easy and nice (not all the time for some people).

    • @AH12 Oh yeah, it is a different driving experience for sure. But I'm certain manufacturers will bring us a proper sports focused EV's. This is just the beginning. We're at that point where, manufacturers are understanding the performance EV gives, and where they're trying to figure out how to deploy that performance. Whilst also simultaneously trying to develop better batteries and systems etc.

    • @Seawolf I'm not saying it bad its looks amazing!! Don't get me wrong it's just that the driving experience is not the same that's what I'm trying to say.. So far I saw pads touch screens laser systems and lots of sensor which are the highest quality on the industry from the German manufacturers brands unlike the others... I'm not saying they doing bad job its just not near it..

      AH12AH12Prieš 13 dienų
    • @AH12 I disagree. Vehicles are getting more efficient, faster, easier to use, with more capabilities. I'm sure people said the same when they replaced crank starters. You see the same systems in aircraft and spacecraft these days as well. Have you seen the cockpit of a new A220? Everything's going the way of the iPad and touchscreens. They may be less tactile, but they're far more functional.
