1. Design and ease of use
Teslas are designed to be minimal and easy to use, so you can focus on driving and staying safe on the road. Tesla accomplished this by removing unnecessary mechanical buttons and obstructions from the interior and integrating everything into a 15-inch touchscreen that can be customized to display your most-used buttons for easy access. The only mechanical buttons you have left are for operating the windows and doors, and the two multifunction scroll wheels on the steering wheel are used to control various functions. Windshield wipers, turn signals and a gear selector are also mounted on the steering wheel, as would normally be found on a regular car.
There's a slight downside to getting used to the touchscreen to locate and use specific buttons, but like anything, once you get used to it, you don't even have to think about it.
Another thing about ease of use is the ability to forget your keys. I mean, Tesla doesn't have a physical car key, your smartphone is the wireless key. You can unlock and lock the doors by approaching or leaving your car. To get in, there's no need to insert a key or any push-to-start button. Just sit in your car and it automatically knows who's driving and sets your mirrors, settings, seat, and steering wheel adjustments. Go to your car, get in and leave. It's so convenient.
With the Tesla app, you can remotely lock and unlock your car, lower or raise windows, open the trunk and trunk, and blink and honk from anywhere in the world. In case you're wondering what happens if your phone dies, all Teslas come with two card keys that can be used when that happens.
Almost every car built since 2014 includes some sort of infotainment screen with options like satellite radio and navigation, and with the addition of apple car play and android auto, you can add custom apps to enhance your driving experience to go one step further. While that's fine for your car, Tesla takes it to a whole new level. First, with the 15-inch touchscreen. There is enough space on the screen to view multiple things such as navigation, speed, surrounding traffic and objects, as well as your current multimedia.
This is important because it allows you to keep your eyes on the road while driving without having to manually switch between different apps on your phone. Everything is visible and at eye level. For those of you who enjoy road trips, you can watch content on youtube, Disney plus, Netflix, Hulu, and even twitch and TikTok! If you have kids or are just a kid, video games are also covered, including great titles like Sonic the Hedgehog and Teacup. Tesla also provides a full-featured Internet browser if you need to surf the Internet.
These functions and advantages are not only superior to traditional vehicles, but also far superior to other electric vehicles in technology. The infotainment system is smooth and lightning fast, without any hiccups or freezes. The benefit of all this is if you subscribe to Premium Connect. Your Tesla will always be directly connected to the internet, which means you don't even need a phone to do anything I mentioned. It is not available through apple car play or android auto.
The most overlooked aspect of Tesla is its amazing safety features. Let's take a closer look at some of the features and how they help make Tesla the safest commercial vehicle in the world. That's right, Tesla vehicles have a perfect 5-star score in every category from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Highway Safety Insurance Agency. how about it? One of the main reasons for this is that Tesla doesn't have an engine in the front of the car, which means the steel and aluminum absorb most of the impact before it's passed on to the driver and passengers.
The Tesla's lower center of gravity because its batteries sit on the bottom of the car saves weight and prevents the car from tipping over, giving it a rollover risk of just 8 percent, the lowest of any SUV ever built.
The roof can hold 6 times its weight, or over 20,00 lbs, or the equivalent of 5 Model 3’s, making it the most durable roof ever built on any commercial production vehicle.
In the end, Teslas have a total of 8 cameras that act as extra eyes that can detect cars, objects, and even pedestrians, watch out for hazards on the road as you drive, and target the car against those hazards by breaking the car or letting it steer Take action to prevent accidents from happening.
Cars age, and so do features and technology. Teslas are not only durable but fresh, constantly receiving new features through over-the-air updates. You can't just update your software for new features like new streaming services, video games, and new features that didn't even come with the car. For example, in previous updates, we received blind spot cameras and remote video. Among your phone's seven cameras, there's a speakerphone feature that lets you remotely call an external speaker from anywhere in the world through your phone.
But the coolest thing is that your infotainment screen is connected to nearly every mechanical part of the car, so you can get updates not only to the entertainment features but to parts of the car itself. For example, Tesla was equipped with a certain horsepower not long ago, and then there was an update, which made your car faster by updating the battery and wheel mechanism.
It can also update security features and fix any issues you may have. In terms of autonomous driving, continuous updates make the car smarter and safer in more complex situations.
So instead of owning a regular car, you have to wait for the next model every 4 years for new features and performance. Tesla continued to develop itself.
5. No more gas
In today's world of rising gas prices, it's no surprise that electric vehicles are the more logical choice when buying a new car. In case you didn't know, Teslas are all-electric, which means you no longer have to pay a fortune to commute to work or have to go to a humble gas station. When you own a Tesla, all you need to do is charge your car at home. Depending on how much you drive, you can even charge your car using a regular outlet instead of upgrading to a wall charger. Sure, it will add to your electric bill, but in my experience, it's only been $15-20 a month since owning the car. Save about $1350 per year compared to previous Mercedes C300 cars.
Depending on which Tesla model you buy, you can get up to 396 miles of range on a full charge. When you're out and about to refuel, you can use Tesla's Supercharger network to cover 200 miles in just 15 minutes. More than 30,000 superchargers are manufactured every day.
6. Which performed
Because Teslas are powered by electricity, acceleration is instantaneous, which means that when you press the pedal, all the power is immediately transferred directly to the motor and wheels, making these cars much faster than ordinary cars. My Tesla 0-60 time is just 3.1 seconds which is insane. Even if you buy a long-range Model 3, your 0-60 acceleration time is only 4.2 seconds, which is still much faster than ordinary gasoline-powered cars of the same level. If you choose the Model S grid, 0-60 in 1.99 seconds, is the fastest production car ever.
Not only is Tesla fast, but it can also drive a light sports car. Putting your Tesla in "track mode" lets you take it to a track without any upgrades.
So, when you buy a Tesla, you're getting a practical 4-door sedan with plenty of storage space to accommodate your family comfortably, and still be able to disassemble just about every sports car on the road.
Another great benefit of owning a Tesla is that owning these cars requires no maintenance as there is no engine, no oil changes, fuel filters, spark plugs, or emissions checks. Brake pads are even rarely replaced, as regenerative braking returns energy to the battery, significantly reducing brake wear. So Tesla doesn't need any annual maintenance. The only thing you need to worry about is changing the air and cabin filter, which is done every 2-3 years. Tesla also recommends replacing the air conditioner's desiccant bags every six years. So, not only do you save on the cost of gasoline, but you also save on expensive oil changes, emissions checks, brake pads, and other maintenance that comes with owning a conventional gasoline-powered vehicle.
Teslas have many great features, but some of the most important is their safety features. As mentioned in the security section of this video, Tesla is equipped with 8 cameras. These cameras are not just for safety, but also for security. You see, the Tesla is equipped with something called Sentry Mode. Its function is to allow Tesla to record the surrounding environment when you are not there. When you park your car far from home, you can activate Sentry Mode to protect your car from intruders. When someone approaches your car, its headlights will flash as a warning, and then your infotainment screen will display a message letting outsiders know their every move is being recorded inside the car. Not only does the camera start recording activity, but it also notifies you via the smartphone app. From there, you can open the app and view live images from the camera. You can also speak into your Tesla's external speakers through the app to let anyone know you saw them. Just like a ring door camera in your home.
If you can't get your phone, once you're back in the car, you'll be notified of any detected activity while you're away and given the option to view recorded footage immediately. You can also restrict parking services by disabling most car functions, including turning off Bluetooth and wifi, hiding personal information, locking the glove box, trunk, front fenders, and speed limit driving, all of which can also be accessed through a smartphone app. control.
If you're in the market for your next car, you shouldn't have any reason not to consider a Tesla. They're functional, maintenance-free, save you money in the long run, and are comfortable to drive.
