The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Tesla Model 3 promises Tesla chic at mass-market prices, at least when less expensive versions arrive, but build quality should be any buyer’s biggest worry. The 2018 Tesla Model S still delivers unequaled battery-electric performance, though its style and safety are beginning to show their age.
