Tesla is one of the most popular companies in the world. This is because they have brought a lot of innovation to the car industry. We will cover all of Tesla’s car models so you have a better understanding of them.
And yes, Elon Musk decided to make the first 4 cars spell sexy, or S-3-X-Y.
The first car we are going to cover is the Tesla Model S. It is probably the most known car that Tesla makes. Looking at the car most people would classify it as a sporty executive car, or a grand tourer. This means it offers a comfortable long-distance drive at high speeds.
The Model S is definitely in the executive price range with the base model being 75,000$ which is very expensive for the average person. Considering this is much more than the median income of most western countries you can definitely say that the Model S is a luxurious car. Combined with the Model X, the Model S was Tesla’s first car in its new era with Elon Musk. The selling points are 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds which is really fast, a 370-mile range and of course, the Tesla feel and everything that comes with it.
You can easily seat 4 adults in the car and a fair amount of luggage. This is thanks to the car having a trunk, in the back, and a frunk, in the front. We really like the aggressive yet sleek and minimal design of the Model S and think Tesla has done a great job. Both inside and outside you will notice that you have spent at least 75,000$. The problem is that the car costs 75,000$ which is something most people can only dream of.
Next up we have the most recent car that Tesla has released. It is the Tesla Model 3 which can somewhat be seen as a budget model of the Model S. While this is true in some ways, like the overall shape, they are completely different cars in other aspects.
We were already pretty satisfied with the minimalism of the Model S and Model X. Well, the Model 3 has taken minimalism to another level. The only buttons you have are 2 scroll wheels on either side of the wheel. The rest is controlled by the massive 15-inch screen above the center console. This probably also helped Tesla reduce the cost of this car to 35,000$ which is a much more reasonable price for a lot of people.
The Model 3 caters to the middle class who either love tech, electric vehicles or Tesla in general. The Model 3 has a range of 310-miles and can do 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds. Like the Model S, you can easily fit 4 adults into the car with a lot of storage in the trunk and frunk.
Overall we think the design of the car is pretty decent but there are some parts we don’t like. From the front, the look of the car doesn’t fit the minimal, sleek Tesla design. But that is not a deal breaker for most people. But luckily the almost full glass roof makes up for that. It makes the car look bigger, futuristic and insanely awesome.
The Model X is probably so popular because of its unique falcon doors. These don’t just look really cool but actually serve a purpose. They can open in tighter spaces compared to generic doors. Anyway, the Model X is the high-end SUV that Tesla released together with the Model S. But except for the release date and price, the Model X is a completely different car.
First of all, it is an SUV, so the car is much bigger and sits higher above the road. The car has 3 seating layouts you can choose from. A 5-seater, 6-seater or 7-seater. When choosing the 6 or 7-seater you lose some storage space in the trunk. The layout would then be 2-2-2 or 2-3-2 accordingly. We have found that the last 2 seats should not be used for adults as that would be a very uncomfortable ride. So, this car is perfect for couples with kids that want an electric vehicle.
But don’t worry, the Model X can also be very fun to drive as it is the fastest SUV currently on the market. Its 0-60mph time is 2.7 seconds and it has a range of 325-miles. The interior is pretty similar to the Model S, very luxurious and minimal. The big difference is the huge windscreen that goes all the way above the driver and passenger.
The next car has not neem released yet but announced an is ready to be ordered. The Tesla Model Y is the latest model that Tesla has announced. The first models will be shipped around fall of 2020. This car, like the Model 3, can be seen as the budget version of the Model X. The cheapest Model Y comes in at 48.000$ which is around 50% less than the Model X.
The seating layout is almost the same as on the Model X. You have the option between a 5 or 7-seater option. The Model Y doesn’t have the popular windshield that runs above the driver. Instead, it has the same full glass roof as the Model 3 has. Sadly though, the roof and windshield are separated by the frame of the car. All in all the Model Y looks like a scaled-up version of the Model 3.
This is because a lot of the same parts are used in both cars. This car is catered to the middle-class families who want/need an SUV for more space. Coming to performance. The range of the Model Y is 280-miles with a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds. The range is not ideal for long road trips but generally, it is pretty good. Considering the fast 0-60 time you can still have a lot of fun with the car.
Last but not least we have the car most people are looking forward to. The founder’s series of the Tesla Roadster has been announced to come out in 2020. This model will cost 250.000$. Later on, the base model will come out, this will cots 200.000$. considering the price is very high the car is probably a supercar. Well, this is not the case. if you look at its performance you would classify it as a supercar.
The main selling points are its long range, fast acceleration, top speed, and absolutely beautiful look. Its 0-60mph time is only 1.9 seconds, the fastest road car to date. The range is about 620-miles and it has a top speed of over 250mph. This means it is one of, probably the, fastest cars around today. The Tesla Roadster also has about double the range of Tesla’s other road cars, which considering it is a hypercar is just insane.
-Coming to its design. The interior is just as futuristic and minimal as other Tesla vehicles. The thing we found cool is that the Tesla Roadster can seat 4 people. The car looks very sleek and futuristic from the outside and has a very light, removable glass roof. The roof fits perfectly in the trunk meaning this car is a convertible with a glass roof. We just think this will be the most insane car to date. And considering its performance the car is not priced badly.
