Tesla Model 3 Ready To Race Tesla Model S … & Rumbling? (Video Fun)

August 12th, 2017 by  

Originally published on EV Annex.

We decided to create a video comparison for Model S and Model 3 … but how? Sure, there are some spy shots and an increasing number of photos, but there have been very few side-by-side videos of the two vehicles together.

Fortunately, Roger Pressman, here at EVANNEX, owns one of the first Model S vehicles produced by Tesla — a Signature Model S, VIN#184. He purchased the car in 2012 and has used it as a rolling laboratory for our products ever since. Nevertheless, we’re located in Florida, 2,500 miles from Fremont and 1,000 miles from Ohio, where Model 3s are being safety tested.

Given that, the problem with a video comparison is obvious — there are no Model 3s in Florida.

Luckily, we recently announced our new special AR (augmented reality) app. We created a car-size “target,” and the rest is shown in our video. The Model 3 you see isn’t real, but it sure does demonstrate just how cool augmented reality can be. [Editor’s Note: The funny thing for me is how the Model 3 looks to be rumbling in the video — in sync with the music — which an electric car obviously doesn’t do. Frankly, it looks hilarious.]

To access this for yourself and get the Model 3 Augmented Reality (AR) Experience, head over to EV Annex.
