Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve surely heard about Tesla. Tesla, Inc. is American clean energy and electric vehicle company in Palo Alto, California. The fully electric car maker changed the significance and the way people viewed electric vehicles. Tesla cars are widely popular with their long-range driving, intuitive technology, and modern design.
After many years, Tesla cars are finally being launched in Nepal. Even before arriving in Nepal, the Electric car was gaining popularity amongst Nepali car buyers because of a certain individual, Elon Musk. And hence the vehicle started hitting the Nepalese roads aggressively. With its low maintenance, environment friendly, and minimum road Tax, it has become premium electric car buyers’ first choice to go for. Tesla Model X and Model 3 are the only models currently available in the Nepalese market.
Interior and comfort
The interior aesthetics of the Tesla Model 3, with all controls accessible on the central 15-inch touchscreen, have been designed to improve over time with regular software updates and to introduce new features, functions, and performance. The center console is modern and efficient, with plenty of covered storage space and a charging facility for two smartphones.
There is enough legroom for the driving passenger and back-row passengers. While the back legroom cannot be extended, the front steering wheels and seat can be adjusted as per the height and preferences of the driver. It can even be saved so that there is no need to adjust it every time. The roof has an all-glass feature that is one-way see-through so you can enjoy the perfect morning sky and night view from inside the car while being in the comfort of an awesomely spacious legroom, along with front and rear AC. It also contains a custom audio system featuring 15 speakers for quality sound dynamics for people that enjoy music while driving.
Performance and Safety
Those looking for the ultimate luxury driving experience available in Nepal will be best served by the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Performance version. With breathtaking acceleration and incredible off-the-line performance, its handling is effortless. The carbon fiber spoiler improves stability even at high speeds. Acceleration from 0-60 mph is possible in as little as 3.1 seconds. There’s enough power on tap to make short work of some of the fastest performing cars around in most everyday situations.
Even the battery capacity is pleasantly surprising, giving up to 263 miles on a full charge.
For such an incredible piece of engineering, it is one of the safest, if not the safest car in the world. Earning 5 stars from NHTSA in all of its safety categories, the 2021 Tesla Model 3 is an extremely safe compact luxury car. This includes rollover, frontal crash, side crash. The NHTSA also praised Tesla for offering above-average standard safety technology with cameras mounted on every side for best viewing angles, and sensors for monitoring surrounding vehicles. These technologies include lane departure warning, impending collision braking, forward collision warning, and dynamic brake support.
