00:48

for the quirks and features of the new

00:51

Tesla Model 3 Highland except it's not

00:55

actually called the Highland everybody's

00:58

been calling it that but when I borrowed

01:00

this car from Tesla they told me they

01:02

don't call it the Highland externally in

01:04

any marketing materials internally it's

01:06

not called the Highland Tesla literally

01:08

said to me in an email we don't know

01:10

where that came from we don't know why

01:12

people are calling it that so it is not

01:14

called the model 3 Highland officially

01:16

or unofficially that's just a name I

01:19

guess Tesla fans have given it which is

01:21

certainly an interesting Quirk now on to

01:24

the rest so you might be thinking new

01:26

model 3 what exactly is different looks

01:28

the same as the old one well not up

01:31

front the front end design has been

01:33

updated you can see the front face has

01:35

been changed the headlights have been

01:37

changed it's a subtle update up here but

01:40

it is different than the old outgoing

01:42

model and it looks more modern and same

01:45

deal in Beck there's no radical redesign

01:47

here but it is different compared to the

01:49

outgoing model 3 have a different tail

01:51

light design a different rear end design

01:54

in general some subtle tweaks some

01:56

changes to modernize the look of the car

01:58

and the badge is different different

02:00

Tesla is now written across the rear end

02:02

of the model 3 as opposed to the Big T

02:05

Tesla badge right in the center that's

02:08

another difference for the new one and

02:09

the wheel design has changed too gone as

02:12

the old Tesla Model 3-wheel very

02:14

distinctive replaced instead by this one

02:17

which is new and apparently better for

02:19

aerodynamics in fact Tesla says that all

02:22

of these changes while subtle have

02:24

combined to make this the most

02:26

aerodynamic Tesla model of all time to

02:29

improve the drag coefficient to make it

02:31

even more slippery and aerodynamic and

02:34

two new paint colors coming to the new

02:36

model 3 there's Arrow gray which

02:39

apparently this is looks a lot like the

02:41

gray on other model 3s but I guess it's

02:44

new and also stealth red which will be

02:48

red and stealthy and next up we move

02:51

inside the updated model 3 where the

02:54

interior has also been tweaked and

02:56

revised Tesla says with the goal of impr

02:59

improving the feel the quality and the

03:02

premiumness which is an actual word that

03:05

Tesla used in an email to me explaining

03:07

what they're changing although I make

03:09

fun of them for that the truth is they

03:11

have done a good job of increasing the

03:14

premium feel in this interior that was

03:16

always a complaint about the outgoing

03:17

model 3 it just didn't seem all that

03:20

nice inside and now they've boosted

03:22

things and made it better specifically

03:24

the dashboard you have this new material

03:26

here on the top which looks and feels

03:28

nice and this live going around the

03:30

entire top of the dashboard and

03:32

continuing down to the door panel it

03:34

includes both aluminum trim which looks

03:36

good and a mood lighting element which

03:38

also looks nice and you can change the

03:41

color of that to be whatever you see fit

03:44

but probably the biggest interior change

03:46

in the new model 3 comes in back we have

03:48

a new display screen back here a new 8in

03:51

display touch screen that allows you as

03:54

the rear passenger to select configure

03:56

change all sorts of things you have for

03:59

example movies back here a Entertainment

04:01

app section with Hulu and YouTube that

04:04

you can select and then watch movies if

04:06

you want there's also video games back

04:08

here as you can see several different

04:10

titles you can play with a video game

04:12

controller that comes with the car if

04:15

you want to do that and you have climate

04:17

controls back here you can adjust your

04:19

air temperature fan speed and you even

04:22

have heated rear seats now for added

04:25

comfort in the updated model 3 as for

04:27

other changes to the new model 3 one of

04:29

them comes to the center screen you

04:31

still have a Giant Center screen that

04:33

controls everything like in basically

04:35

all Tesla models but it's apparently a

04:38

little bit bigger than before and Tesla

04:40

says more responsive which will

04:41

obviously make life easier and then

04:44

there's the new sound system Tesla says

04:46

there is a new Next Generation premium

04:49

sound system available in the latest

04:51

model 3 with 17 speakers which is a lot

04:55

of speakers and it should enhance your

04:57

sound quality in here also in this

04:59

interior you have dual wireless charging

05:02

one little charging pad on each side for

05:04

two phones and USB C ports in these

05:07

Center Cubbies for more charging of your

05:10

devices another interesting thing Tesla

05:12

has eliminated the roll forward mode

05:15

when the car is at idle in the past you

05:17

could have the car roll forward to

05:20

simulate a regular gas powered car with

05:22

a traditional automatic transmission

05:24

that's gone now and when you're stopped

05:26

at idle even in drive the car stops in

05:29

place but probably the biggest change up

05:32

front to the new model 3 is the lack of

05:35

stocks coming off the steering column

05:38

for the new model 3 the stocks for your

05:40

windshield wipers turn signals your

05:42

shifting into gear all that stuff is

05:44

gone and integrated into other places in

05:47

the car in the case of the turn signals

05:49

it's here on the steering wheel you can

05:51

see button for left button for right you

05:53

push those and that's how you put on

05:55

your turn signal if you want to turn on

05:57

your windshield wipers you tap the

05:59

windshield wiper button on the steering

06:01

wheel you can see it here and then it

06:02

pulls up your windshield wiper controls

06:04

on the screen and then you select what

06:06

it is you want various different wiper

06:08

speeds or just automatic wipers if you

06:11

want to go into gear and actually drive

06:14

the car you have two choices no longer a

06:17

stock but instead get in the car put

06:19

your foot on the brake and this display

06:21

appears on the left side of the screen

06:23

allowing you to drag the car upwards to

06:26

go forward go into drive or drag the car

06:29

back backwards to go into reverse that's

06:32

how you can select gears or if you want

06:35

a more traditional gear selection

06:37

situation you have that on the ceiling

06:39

near the rear view mirror you can barely

06:41

make out prnd D around the hazard light

06:45

button that's an old school traditional

06:47

way where you can shift gears if for

06:49

example the screen breaks or you just

06:51

prefer that to swiping your finger and

06:54

one other function the stocks used to

06:56

have but no longer is turning on

06:58

autopilot you used to press the the

06:59

stock down a couple times autopilot

07:00

would go on since it's gone now you turn

07:03

on autopilot with this button here you

07:06

press it on the steering wheel just one

07:07

press or you can configure it to be two

07:09

presses but either way it goes on and

07:12

turns on autopilot so these functions of

07:14

the stocks have migrated elsewhere and

07:17

now the stocks are gone in an effort to

07:18

increase minimalism in this interior and

07:21

one other big change for the new model 3

07:24

is an intended Improvement in noise

07:26

reduction Tesla tells me they've added

07:29

AC ustic glass you can see this double

07:31

painted glass and made other noise

07:34

reduction and vibration enhancements to

07:37

this car to try to make it quieter more

07:39

comfortable more Supple inside this

07:42

interior now Tesla tells me that the

07:44

result is a 30% reduction in wind noise

07:48

a 20% reduction in road noise a 30%

07:51

Improvement in noise isolation and a 25%

07:55

impact in overall noise reduction I have

07:58

no idea how they measure me those

07:59

percentages but that's the goal to make

08:01

the car feel more premium with the

08:04

materials and with the sound and comfort

08:07

while you're driving so those are all

08:09

the new changes to the updated model 3

08:11

before I get on to General model 3

08:14

quirks and features I want to talk over

08:16

the two versions of this car that are

08:19

available there are two trim levels

08:20

there's a base model with rear wheeel

08:22

drive it starts around

08:24

$39,000 it has 272 M of range and it

08:28

does 0 60 in 5.8 seconds or you can

08:32

upgrade to the long range model that's

08:35

this one dual motor because it has

08:37

all-wheel drive that starts around

08:40

$47,500 and with the dual motor range

08:43

jumps to about

08:45

$340 M on a single charge which is

08:47

excellent and acceleration drops 0 to 60

08:50

in 4.2 seconds now of course the pricing

08:53

numbers I'm quoting that's before

08:54

rebates that may be offered by your

08:57

local or federal government depending on

08:59

your situation but those are the

09:00

starting prices before those rebates so

09:03

those are the basics the updates and

09:05

changes for the new model 3 now let's

09:07

move on to General model 3 cirks and

09:10

features starting with getting inside

09:13

your phone is a key you do have a key

09:17

card that comes with this car as a

09:19

backup but you don't need it you got

09:21

your Tesla app you walk up to the car

09:23

you phone's in your pocket you press on

09:25

the door handle it opens right up and

09:27

you walk in and the phone app has a lot

09:29

of great benefits related to the car you

09:31

can find out where the car is on your

09:34

phone app you can schedule charging you

09:36

can mess with security and you can even

09:38

do various vehicle functions from the

09:41

app like lock or unlock the doors drop

09:43

the windows or even honk the horn all of

09:46

which is neat party tricks but you can

09:48

see how that stuff would be functional

09:50

too and once you're inside the model 3

09:53

you start to notice a lot of interesting

09:55

quirks and features for one despite the

09:58

minimalist nature of this interior the

10:00

basic Simplicity of this car's overall

10:03

design it actually has a lot of really

10:05

fantastic high-tech features let's start

10:08

with the camera system you put on the

10:09

turn signal you press that button on the

10:11

steering wheel and it brings up a blind

10:14

spot camera which is right in your

10:16

Center screen so you can see what's in

10:18

your blind spot making it easier to make

10:21

a lane change now one drawback about

10:23

this car's minimalism is the lack of a

10:26

screen directly ahead of the steering

10:28

wheel like where gauge cluster would be

10:30

it'd be nice to see that blind spot

10:32

camera in that screen but Tesla doesn't

10:34

offer one like some other brands do so

10:37

we have it here instead it's still a

10:38

fantastic feature you don't get on many

10:40

cars another great feature about the

10:42

camera system is that you can pull it up

10:44

with just one tap of this button on the

10:46

steering wheel press it and then your

10:48

cameras are up which makes it easier to

10:50

park or move around in tight spaces a

10:52

lot of cars have great camera systems

10:54

better than Tesla but you got to go into

10:56

various menus to access them a simple

10:58

tap on the steering wheel and the

11:00

cameras are up that's great and another

11:02

great benefit of the camera system in

11:03

this car is Sentry mode when you park

11:06

this car lock it and walk away you can

11:09

arm Sentry mode where the cameras that

11:12

show you where you're parking suddenly

11:13

become security cameras that show you if

11:16

someone comes up to the car and tries to

11:18

break a window or break in steal

11:20

something whatever you suddenly have

11:22

security cameras all on your car which

11:24

is cool possibly the only drawback of

11:27

the camera system is the TLA still

11:29

doesn't have a top down 360ยฐ camera in

11:33

this car which is absolutely wild

11:35

basically every other automaker is

11:37

offering this now makes it very easy to

11:39

maneuver in tight spaces easy to park

11:41

between the lines or where you want

11:42

unfortunately Tesla still hasn't figured

11:44

that one out which is disappointing but

11:46

next we move on to the other rather

11:48

interesting Quirk of this car which is

11:50

that a lot of the adjustments that you

11:53

see in normal vehicles with switches and

11:55

buttons are worked with the screen in

11:58

this car it's very interesting let's

12:01

start with the mirrors to adjust the

12:03

mirrors there's no switch on your door

12:05

panel instead you go into the controls

12:07

menu you select the mirrors and then

12:10

this little switch on your steering

12:12

wheel changes the mirrors you can go

12:14

left right up down you can see the

12:16

mirror is changing as I move the switch

12:19

and you can switch over to the other

12:21

side mirror and then the same switch

12:23

will do the same thing just over on the

12:25

passenger side it's the same deal with

12:27

adjusting the steering wheel position

12:29

you go into the steering wheel settings

12:31

menu in the center screen and then once

12:33

again this switch will move the steering

12:36

wheel up and down backwards and forwards

12:39

so that you can position it exactly

12:41

where you want rather than a typical

12:43

switch on the steering wheel it starts

12:45

in the center screen and it's more than

12:48

just that you want to turn on your

12:49

headlights well guess where you go that

12:51

would be into the screen where you can

12:54

turn them on there now thankfully you

12:55

can flash your brights your high beams

12:57

on the steering wheel which is sometimes

12:59

a nice feature to be able to have

13:01

instant access to but your typical

13:03

headlights are in the screen amazingly

13:06

this screen control setup even includes

13:09

your glove box you want to open that you

13:11

got to go into the screen into the

13:13

control section and then you press the

13:16

part of the screen that opens up the

13:17

glove box and then it opens you don't

13:19

even have a glove box handle in this car

13:22

it is that minimalists now the drawback

13:25

to all of this screen stuff is obviously

13:27

it complicates some items but it's a lot

13:30

of stuff you don't use very frequently

13:32

like your headlights you put them in

13:33

Auto and the car will kind of take care

13:35

of the rest you don't really need a

13:36

button or a switch for them however the

13:38

climate controls it's a little bit of a

13:40

different story that you're using very

13:42

frequently and of course it's integrated

13:44

into the screen now you have your basic

13:46

controls down here you can adjust the

13:48

temperature pretty easily here and you

13:50

can turn on your heated seats or your

13:52

front defroster rear defroster all with

13:54

sort of a simple two-step process but

13:57

for more climate controls you get you

13:58

got to press the screen it pulls up a

14:00

larger menu and then you have more work

14:02

to do to figure out exactly what it is

14:03

you want to use it's not a huge

14:05

disappointment or drawback but it is a

14:08

little harder to use than other

14:09

automakers that have integrated their

14:11

climate controls into the screen where

14:12

it just takes up a fixed portion of the

14:14

screen at all times here you got to at

14:16

least do one tap and then a second tap

14:19

to do basically anything and a strange

14:21

myth that this car has when you turn on

14:24

your heated seats in the climate control

14:26

setting you turn them on and then it

14:27

doesn't display play anywhere that they

14:30

are on now if you're sitting in the

14:32

driver's seat it seat's getting hot you

14:34

don't really need the car to tell you

14:36

that it's on but if your passenger

14:37

leaves the seat on and then gets out of

14:39

the car it might just stay heating same

14:42

deal in the back with no icon to let you

14:44

know that it's on kind of a weird

14:46

decision a little disappointing with

14:48

that said one absolutely fantastic

14:50

feature of the climate controls is

14:51

something that Tesla calls dog mode the

14:54

way this works is you can leave your dog

14:57

in the car even on a hot day you're

14:59

going shopping normally that would be a

15:01

very bad thing it gets hot inside the

15:03

car and the dog could die but if you put

15:05

the car in dog mode you can leave the

15:08

dog inside lock the doors walk away and

15:10

the car will keep the interior

15:12

temperature at a reasonable 70 some

15:15

degrees Fahrenheit to make sure that the

15:18

the dog stays comfortable even while

15:20

you're outside the car doing something

15:22

else and then it even says on the screen

15:25

while you're away hey the dog is

15:27

comfortable don't worry it's nice and

15:29

cool inside the car just so people don't

15:32

freak out when they see a dog in your
