Tesla offered up rides in its news Model 3 to attendees of tonight’s event. While the car won’t be in the hands of regular folks anytime before the end of 2017 (hopefully), the automaker gave anyone that wanted a ride, a trip up and down the street in a pre-production version of the car.
Since I wasn’t allowed behind the driver’s seat (boo), the entire experience is from that of a passenger.
The Model 3 is zippy. Zero to sixty in six seconds is nothing compared to a Model S, but for a family sedan, it’s impressive. During the ride, the driver took us up and down a closed street stomping on the gas both times after navigating a disco-light and smoke-machine infused parking lot. The entire drive lasted only a few minutes. As soon as the cars are production ready, Tesla will probably offer more than a quick jaunt down the street.
