Tesla showcase the Model 3’s main features on its web page. If you didn’t know better the webpage for the Model 3 would lead you to believe that you can get a Model 3 with 3.2 sec 0-60, 325 Miles of range and AWD Dual motor drive. Just click “Order Now”.
The reality is the vehicle that is capable of 0-60 in 3.2 secs is the Performance Model 3 which is rated for 310 miles of range not 325. When you click Order now that becomes apparent. The webpage is quite misleading being a hybrid of specifications which cannot all be true for an available vehicle configuration. Tesla have also been criticized for showing cost “after gas savings over 6 years” rather than show only the actual cost you need to pay.
I don’t know why Tesla thinks it necessary to exaggerate the capabilities of their cars which are some of the best available. IMHO honesty is the best policy.
Tesla have fixed their website and now the online ad is accurate. I’d like to think my blog post resulted in a fixed website, but probably not. Good to see Tesla fix their ad.
