The 2018 Tesla Model 3 isn’t really a car — at least not by today’s rules of automotive engagement. Yes, it is a compact sedan that can take up to five passengers from origin to destination, but that’s where the similarities end. Before the Model 3, the concept of pre-orders for mainstream automobiles didn’t exist — especially when money was requested in exchange for something that wouldn’t be delivered for months or years. Supercar shoppers were familiar with buying sight-unseen, but not middle-class consumers. Yet Tesla’s gamble has paid off to the tune of over half a million orders (valued at over half a billion dollars). And that’s just the Model 3 purchase process — the vehicle itself is even more innovative.
Though the Tesla Model 3 has many more than just 10 unusual features, we’ve whittled down the list to the coolest quirks. Let’s dive into one of the most exciting vehicles of the 21st century.
