The Tesla Model 3 is the electric car maker’s most affordable offering yet. And while this BMW 3 Series rival won’t go on sale in the UK until next year, we’ve been to the US for an early drive… Since launching the Model S luxury car in 2012, Tesla has made a name for itself as a manufacturer of desirable and sporty electric vehicles. However, these remain out of reach for many due to high prices. That’s where the new Tesla Model 3 comes in. Sitting below the Model S and the Model X SUV in the company’s range, it’s likely to be priced from about £35,000 when it arrives in the UK next year.
