I think the difference between 215 and 240 is significant (it's a good bit of your Spark range). Doubt very much the single motor M3 will be more efficient at highway speeds. Agree Tesla charging is an advantage assuming you want to go on longer trips, which I doubt many people will do.Coming from Spark EV @ 75 mile range, Model 3 will be a huge upgrade. Difference between 238 mile range and hypothetical 215 mile range is not significant. Tesla supercharger network negates any range difference anyways... At highway speeds M3 will be more efficient.
Would love to see this. However, the only people I know who have a BMW 3 series are in their 20s-30s. work in cubicles. and live in apartments. The first is not a problem but the second means charging could be a huge deterrent.I doubt the model 3's EPA range will move the needle substantially one way or the other on reservations getting converted to purchases. Tesla to their credit has built a great brand and the model 3 certainly looks attractive to me. I really hope they eat the 3 series / A4 / C class lunch.
Well, besides misspelling 'choose', I also skipped the "I already decided the Bolt was the better choice in EVs" choice because I was curious about those who still held Model 3 reservations.I had to vote "other" because there was no choice for "Model 3 range is irrelevant to me because I prefer the more utilitarian Bolt".
I doubt it. Bolt gen1 just arrived. For the volt, there were 4 model years for the gen1. So the bolt gen2 probably won't arrive until at least calendar year 2021 unless they fast track a replacement. The real hope is that they put a bolt-like drivetrain into more vehicles, like a larger sedan, wagon, CUV, truck, SUV, etc.For the time TESLA 3 is here ,BOLT gen 2 would be in the market !!!.
I also voted "Undecided or Other" because I have to wait until any of the two arrive here in Puerto Rico. There are seven Model S here (I posted pictures of one on the Tesla forum here) yet there is no "showroom" or service shops for any Tesla Motors models. GM hasn't brought the Chevy Bolt EV yet. Maybe by December it will arrive and I can swap the Equinox for the Bolt EV.I had to vote "other" because there was no choice for "Model 3 range is irrelevant to me because I prefer the more utilitarian Bolt".
I had a reservation, placed it during the reveal, then later got a refund because I wanted something more like a 5 series size rather than a 3 series. Interestingly the model S is more like a 7 series BMW in size.I'd love to see who on here even has a paid Tesla reservation...Currently the poll states 15, I believe half the people who voted probably don't even have one, lol...Gen1ers have been caught voting on Gen2 owner polls...
