Saving the world is a lot of work, but it can be done one step at a time. Electric cars are rapidly improving, and now Tesla’s Model 3 is the one that pushes the envelope the furthest.
Electric cars and hybrids, in a lesser way, are the way of the future if we plan to leave an inhabitable planet for the next generation, but they hadn’t really been viable up until now. Either because they just have short ranges or extremely high entry points, the common user chose to sacrifice the well-being of the planet for usability. This might soon change, though, as Tesla’s $35,000 Model 3 is the first of its kind with a long, useful range, and a decent price if you factor that you won’t need gas anymore as you can recharge for free it at any Tesla Supercharger stations. A price of $35.000 is less than half of previous models, which ranged between $100,000 and $70,000 anyways, and factoring in how much this car’s battery lasts (you can actually plan roadtrips!), this is a steal.
Tesla Motors’ had their patents go open source recently, which is a great thing for consumers as more companies might opt for alternative energy sources if this model does well, and it should, as the Model 3 is everything an electric car should be.
