Tesla Testimonials | Are Electric Cars Really More Fun?
1. Model 3
The Tesla Model 3 is Tesla’s first serious foray into the mass consumer market. This all-electric marvel of the future is powered by a 258 HP electric motor — surprising for an electric car.
Unlike gas-powered vehicles, electric vehicles release their full torque upon acceleration. That means it can breeze through 0-100km/h in just under three seconds. Not bad for a mass-market car, right? The beauty of the Model 3 lies in the technology powering it. Take, for example, its batteries. The EPA rating for these batteries is a surprising 400+ km per full charge.
What are the features to expect? The Autopilot feature (standard in all Tesla models) is more than just a glorified cruise control. The huge 17-inch display on the dashboard, which is your control hub for pretty much everything in your car, is a nice feature to have. It contains a GPS, power status, navigation, media center, and so much more. The interiors are quite roomy too — reportedly roomier than those in SUVs.
Mike Montecillo of Consumer Reports lays down his thoughts in his Tesla testimonial:
As our Model 3 reaches 2,000 break-in miles and heads into our formal testing phase, we’re struck by how enjoyable this car is to drive.
2. Model S
The nice thing about a Tesla vehicle is that a lot of thought goes into its engineering. You can see this from its interiors to its engines to its body. The Model S is a shining example of that caliber of care. Built as a luxury sedan, the Model S can be likened in performance and size to a Porsche Cayman. The motors are built into each wheel (yes, it’s an AWD), which frees up a lot of space — meaning two trunks. However, it’s not the carrying capacity that really amazes us — it’s the range.
The Model S batteries are rated to take you up to 500 km on a single charge. With the Model S, comfort is also considered. Spacious and comfortable seats, sufficient legroom, and even child seat allowances make the Model S a joy for families and singles alike. The only problem we see with the Model S is its price, which can easily go upwards of $60,0000.
Check out the Tesla testimonial from The Telegraph’s Chris Knapman:
With the Model S, American car-maker Tesla aims to demonstrate that you can have all the benefits of electric motoring without making any compromises.
3. Model X
For families or people with a lot of luggage to haul around, Tesla offers the Model X. A heavyweight compared to other Teslas, the Model X creates a 21st-century SUV experience — without the carbon emissions, of course. It has a large capacity; it’s able to seat seven comfortably and 10 in a pinch. It features the standard doohickeys in all Tesla cars. This includes a 17-inch touchscreen display, a digital dashboard, and a large sunroof.
Another thing to note is the Model X’s huge windshield, which creates a better field of vision when you’re driving. Its weight is something special, as well; with a bigger car, you’ll need a bigger battery. The floor-mounted battery weighs almost a ton. This gives the car a better center of gravity. Stability will be smooth no matter what type of road you drive on.
Matt Saunders from Autocar has done Tesla testimonials in the past. This is what he has to say about the Model X:
Much like the Model S, its greatest asset is mixing spaciousness, refinement, impressive infotainment and forward-looking tech with a respectable all-electric range and agreeably guilt-free pace.
Let’s let the numbers talk for a bit:
- 0 – 100 km/h in less than two seconds (a world record)
- 400 km/h top speed (for a production car)
- 7,000 pounds of torque
- 1,000 km / full charge
That’s the Tesla Roadster for you. It’s quite possibly the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive electric sports car available right now. The Roadster is a technological marvel that has taken motoring into the 21st century. Its cockpit (not driver’s seat, mind you) looks like it was taken from a Star Trek fighter. It features the huge 17-inch display that’s standard in all Tesla cars. For a sports car, you find a bit more space, even seating four if you feel like it.
Perhaps the only complaint one might have about the Tesla Roadster is the price. Starting at a whopping $200,000, the Tesla Roadster is not for the faint of heart (or the short of cash). The Roadster shows how electric vehicles can bash the notion of unreliability. It proves that it can do anything a gas-powered car can do, but better.
Jonathan Lopez of Top Speed sums up the Roadster in a few sentences:
Throw in the fact the Tesla breaks 1,000 km per charge and even has space for luggage, and it quickly becomes obvious that the California automaker is launching a new epoch in the world of the automotive.
It looks like the future just got a whole lot brighter.

Legit car reviewers offer a public service by creating Tesla testimonials they believe will help consumers who are planning to buy a new car. They’ve spent time taking the car for a spin, checking what’s under the hood, and assessing the car’s limits. However, don’t take their word for it; the best way to get a feel for any car is through a test drive. Head to a Tesla dealership, get behind the wheel, and drive the car to your heart’s content.
