The Tesla 3 - could this be your next zero emission lease car?

The Tesla 3 - could this be your next zero emission lease car?

We have been fortunate enough to test drive the Tesla Model 3 here at OVL HQ - and, in short, we loved it! 

The Model 3 is great to drive, the tech really is the stuff of the future.....but it's here now at our finger tips. Literally as the only controls is the touch screen i-pad'esque control panel that sits on the extremely minimal dashboard.

The touchscreen system is pretty much the same as the one that is in Tesla's larger models – albeit a touch smaller (15in) andlandscape orientation rather than portrait. After a quick demo from the Tesla rep we were able to get to grips with the operating system pretty quickly and were impressed by how intuitive it was.

We mentioned the extremely minimal dashboard already - and we can't really stress how minimal it is! Everything from the wipers to the headlights, steering wheel and door mirror position adjustments are made using that same central touchscreen. The speedo is displayed on the screen, as is mileage range......everything! 

Have a look at Tesla's Model 3 Support Videos here to see the touchscreen for yourself. 

The Model 3 is fast (we drove the Standard Plus) and a pretty smooth drive with plenty of space for 4 adults - a 5th could sit in the middle of the back seat pretty comfortably for a shorter journey,  and a large boot with smaller storage, that would fit a small suitcase, at the front of the car.

Tesla report that the Model 3 can manage 254 miles on a full charge - access to the Tesla Super Charger network is on a pay as you charge basis for the Model 3 and it can of course be charged at home on a normal charger. 

Undeniable sleek looks, a great drive, futuristic interior and the many benefits of electric motoring - what's not to love? 

Our current leasing offer for the Model 3 is from £354.99 a month with delivery in 10-12 weeks from order. Get your personalised quote by clicking here or contact our team by emailing sales@ovl.co.uk or call 01491 615500
