Tesla model 3 performance

They wouldn't work as an only car in an area where you might have to evacuate (I have my work truck for that), but it's a heck of a car.

(I drove and ordered one this weekend)

Did I read that they run a 12-second quarter, bone stock?

Electric cars have ridiculous acceleration, especially the awd models that use hub motors, due to the torque curve of electric motors.

Honestly? I'm not a fan of pure electrics, due to the lack of infrastructure. If Tesla made a hybrid, so it could at least limp along, and stop their ridiculous "black box" approach to service(see what rich repairs had to do to fix his salvage Tesla ),
