Five reasons why we love the Tesla Model 3

As I approach one year of ownership with my long-range, all-wheel-drive Tesla Model 3,

it's a good idea to reflect on what I liked and what I didn't like as much.

The 2019 Model 3 Long Range is our second Tesla purchased for long-term use, following a 2015 Model S P85D.

As we begin the 40k-mile evaluation of this car, it is difficult to overlook the major differences between it

and other comparable-sized and -priced compact luxury sedans.

Due to its great crash safety ratings, fantastic range, performance, a certain level of utility, and pleasant driving demeanour,

the Tesla Model 3 5-seat sedan may wind up being an ideal all-electric car for someone who values avoiding fossil fuels.

Nevertheless, based on the number of years we've driven Teslas,

the current Tesla models are the most pleasurable we've ever driven due to

their rapid acceleration, very tractable handling, and helpful driving features.
