    Opening new thread for Model 3 reviews, with or without videos. Here’s an interesting example just posted by Inside EV journalist Tom Molougney, also a reservation holder. Not near as thorough as what M3OC’s @TrevP and Kenneth Bokor did, of course

    , yet still offering a balanced view with a positive conclusion, despite some (for me at least) understandable ‘nitpicks’, some of which good suggestions for kaizen (aka continuous improvement...).

    I’ll post mine in a few days... but it won’t be a test drive as it’s my own car. . Tom’s fair. But first time I’ve seen him called a journalist. But I suppose he is.

    Courtesy of EVANNEX via Twitter, USA Today’s rather favorable review comes in handy, despite a few approximation or signs of (deliberate?) ignorance, not the least of which concerns the reference to 400k reservations, which I continue to consider way under the reality...

    Extensive, 4 day review from a Model S owner who rented a Model 3 in California. Seems objective.
    We’re starting to get a pattern of comments suggesting the far right position of navigation sequencing on the screen is an UI area for improvement.
    Hope T≡SLA will listen... (from your HUD-deprived mod... ;))

    Ha! Famous Thai-Norwegian Bjørn Nyland just flew over to California to drive You You Xue’s White Model 3! You You was kind enough to let drive close to 1,000 miles over 5 days and many videos are announced.

    Here is the first one, for the most part in the road with Bjørn’s perspective, with quite some portions with EAP on...
    Take a view! ;)

    Here’s Bjørn again taking an in-depth look (courtesy of You You Xue) at all you can fit in Model 3...

    Spoiler alert: this one is (only... :)) 32’ long...

    Nice review in this Verge article of Marques Brownlee’s MCR Model 3, credit to @Teslaliving who posted it on his Twitter account :



    Note Marques’ observation that a fully loaded Model 3 at 60 grand is a better choice than a base Model S... ;)
