PWNG-083 FirstDrive 2020 Tesla Model 3

by on Oct.08, 2021, under Garage, Podcast

PWN Garage Door

Fey takes us on a ride in his recently purchased 2020 Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus. This vehicle has a 54KWhour battery, a 211KW rear drive motor providing 275 Foot-lbs of torque or 375 Newton-metres of torque. The range is approximately 250 miles or 400 kms. The purchase price of this 2020 Tesla was $69,000 including all taxes. Fey has a lot of complaints about this car, but ultimately you will hear giggles of joy. The Auto-Drive features are unsettling and do not inspire confidence in the accuracy of the lane-keeping or cruise speed maintaining. Fey has a warning for KC in Denver about his new diesel engine.
