It’s been over six months since I picked up the (virtual) keys to my new car, a Tesla Model 3 SR+. After years of writing about this all-electric manufacturer, I now have the chance to drive its most popular model. After many thousands of miles, hundreds of daily commutes, and a few long drives, I have a lot to say and that’s how the idea of posting a series about Club iGen was born.
A series on Tesla, on a site dedicated to the Mac? Years pass, but this question still lingers in the comments. However, the points in common with Apple seem to be found, from the philosophy of Tesla, which is similar in many respects, to Apple’s recent interest in the automobile. However, I didn’t become a car journalist because I bought a Model 3 and you didn’t subscribe to the iGen Club to read car reviews.
This series does not aim to test Tesla’s Model 3 as my specialist colleagues would. I’m not going to dwell on foamed plastics, cornering handling or even the dizzying acceleration of the vehicle, I’d rather focus on the day-to-day experience.
From the purchase decision to the ordering process, from delivery to the first trips away from the outlet, from the discovery of this computer on wheels to the problems encountered, you will be able to discover throughout this series everything that makes the Model 3 such an innovative car and Tesla such a special manufacturer.
