Tesla Model 3 Tested In Snow In New Zealand (Pics)

July 30th, 2017 by  

New pictures of the Tesla Model 3 being test driven in the snow in New Zealand recently surfaced — courtesy of two kiwis (I’m making an assumption here) named Will Yates and Ollie Yates.

Pretty much all of the Tesla Model 3 spy shots and promotional shots seem to date have been in temperate weather. The new pics from New Zealand are some of the first to show the Model 3 in the snow. While this probably doesn’t matter to everyone, those who live in cold and snowy climates are probably happy to see that Tesla has been doing some real-world testing in snow.

Here’s more, from Ecotricity New Zealand: “There is definitely one, possibly two, Tesla Model 3s in New Zealand … and it’s been snow testing in a not so secret location here in New Zealand. Have a look at our very own spy shots care of two budding photographers from a secret location high up in the ____ of _____. We can’t say where but you can probably guess.

“Even more exciting is that it looks like they’ve been getting the test car sideways as you can seen the two left hand doors are caved in a fraction.”

Interesting, and apparently true.

Now that the Tesla Model 3 has officially launched, those who want more information on it should head over to the article we published following the unveiling event: Tesla Model 3 Will Come In Standard & Long Range (310 Mile Range) Version, Full Specs Revealed.

Of course, you can also visit the official Tesla Model 3 page.
