Fully on schedule, the first model 3 from Tesla were completed and delivered. During the first test drives there was a lot of reason to be happy and a few unknown innovations. The build quality is better than the previous Tesla models. There are now handles and a mirror with lighting in the sun visor. Much is controlled only via the central display. The doors are opened from the inside by means of a button. This is unusual at first, but works very well.


The interior feels very spacious. The rear row of seats offers the same amount of space as in the Model S, through the raised rear window, it feels even more spacious.
In the Frunk (front trunk) fits as much hand luggage, as may be taken on the plane. The individual compartments of the center console offer more space than the previous models X and S.

The opening of the trunk is not as big as the Model S, but it can still invite larger luggage.

Every current Tesla vehicle has the necessary hardware installed in order to be able to drive completely autonomously at some point. The autopilot in the model 3 must be specially unlocked for a surcharge.

There will be no air suspension. Download to Tesla Superchargers is possible, but not as before free. Rims are available in 18 and 19 inches.

All delivered models had the “vegan” black artificial leather. At Tesla, only more artificial leather has recently been used for the seats. This additionally reduces CO2 emissions.

Details about the delivery event

The first deliveries followed by a party were the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. Chief designer Franz von Holzhausen and CEO Elon Musk welcomed approx. 5.000 guests. As a thank-you for the achievements in recent years and as a motivation for the upcoming difficulties in the production of the Model 3, the majority of the crowd consisted of long-term employees of Tesla. In addition, approximately 300 of the most hard-working Tesla customers from the “Referral” program (customers recruit customers) were invited, including Manuel Strohmeier and Christian Fries, who jointly rent 50 Tesla vehicles under the brand Since they were able to convince many of their customers from the purchase of a Tesla, they come again and again to enjoy the experience at Tesla events.
