I want to preface by saying that I do not think that the Model 3 is going to be a bad car - on the contrary, I think it's going to be BY FAR the best bang for your buck for a $35k car. However, I've encountered a fair bit of assumptions that members are making for Model 3 - ranging all the way from price to quality of the car. It's important to remember that Tesla is not making a follow-up to the Model S, but are instead releasing a car that's on an entirely different platform that has price as its most sensitive variable (i.e. a $35k EV for the masses). Based on that, let's dispel some of the more common assumptions: - The interior quality of the Model 3 will be worse than the Model S in all trims - there will be much more plastics and cheaper trims across the cabin - The interior sound proofing of the Model 3 will be worse than the Model S - The Model 3 will be a slower car than the Model S - The Model 3 will cost significantly more as you option the car up - a 70D with AP and Self Driving will be no less than $55k - The Model 3 will have less comfortable seats than the Model S - The Model 3 will have less features available than the Model S - i.e. don't expect to get self-opening doors, alcantera everything, etc. - The Model 3 will have less leg room in both the front and back seats than the Model 3 (headroom might actually be better in the Model 3 vs. the Model S due to the sloping roofline of the S) Those that haven't been in a Model S, I strongly recommend you stop by a store and get super familiar with the Model S interior and take it on a test drive. I would strongly encourage to get familiar with its quality, sound proofing, and all other things with the car, and substantially lower your expectations for the Model 3.
