“Engineering Explained” Gets A Cherry Red Tesla Model 3 Mid Range

We have learned many things from the brilliant minds over at the Engineering Explained YouTube channel, and now we know that Jason from Engineering Explained went off and purchased his own mid-range, rear-wheel-drive Tesla Model 3 to celebrate hitting 2 million subscribers on the channel.

He introduced the new car with a bit of a mystery, hiding it under a beach towel that kept viewers guessing which electric car he ended up purchasing.

Prior to buying the Model 3, Jason had been keeping an eye on electric vehicle prices for quite some time. To make the process easier, he used Auto Tempest, which is an aggregator for used car sales, to quickly search for EVs listed on the web. The site pulls in used cars listed online at a handful of other sites across the web and puts them all into a single list to make searching for a car even easier. The site is useful and should save those looking for a car some time as opposed to checking the top 5 used car sites one at a time.

Apparently, Jason is a bit picky about tires because he ultimately opted to buy the Model 3 over the BMW i3 because there are more tire choices for the car. The BMW i3 admittedly has a wonky rim size with its narrow rim and low-profile tires, which makes it the odd man out when it comes to tire selection. Jason also opted to upgrade the rims to the 19″ rims from Tesla solely to give him more choices when it comes to tires. Seems strange, but I guess if you’re a tire guy, you’re a tire guy.

Curiously, Jason opted not to get the Enhanced Autopilot package, noting that the car wasn’t fully autonomous, so it wasn’t really worth the extra money. Having said that, he did share that if and when the car can drive fully autonomously, it might be worth kicking down the extra cash for the feature.

The video review lists a number of the key features of the car, and what’s great is that it is all provided in a fairly technical but approachable style, much like the other videos from Engineering Explained. If you haven’t guessed by now, I think it is definitely worth a watch. The video is below.
