We all know that cars produce an enormous amount of gaseous waste that harms our planet, but many people make the excuse that a car is required to live everyday life or the fact that electric cars are too expensive, don’t last long on the road before needing another charge or simply look odd in general. These excuses may not be valid in the near future with Tesla releasing their new all electric Model 3.
The new Tesla Model 3, set to release at the end of July, promises to impress with it’s sleek design, longer-lasting battery and best of all; it’s affordable price. The Model 3 is to start around $35,000 USD. With a $7,500 federal tax credit, it could cost $27,500. The car can drive up to 345 km at full charge and is able to go from 0 to 60 in under 6 seconds.
The Model 3 is comparable to the Chevrolet Bolt in price and distance travelled though it is classified as a luxury car. This goes to show that the automobile industry luxury or not, is heading in the right direction producing more affordable and sustainable options for drivers.
Some other popular examples of electric cars include the Ford Focus Electric, Chevrolet Volt and BMW i3, though the Model 3 is going to surpass the distance per charge and low prices by far.
It’s exciting to know that in the near future the options will be endless to make the choice for more environmentally friendly means of transportation, and it will take less of a blow on the wallet!
