Some big battery-size assumptions. 45 kWh base? That seems low to me. My guess is 55 kWh for the base battery.

I was re-watching some of the reveal-night test-drive videos. During one of them, the engineer made a comment to the effect that the Model 3 wouldn't be as fast as a Ludicrous Model S. Now, he may have been talking about the particular dual-motor configuration, but it sounded like he meant in general. So a Ludicrous 3 may very well not be as quick as a Ludicrous S.

For me 6secs is very fast.
It's not the killer reason for me.
I wont be running from the Police.

Range, range, range

That video was from Motortrend. I believe they only posted it to facebook themselves.
So, here's the original version:

[edit]: Facebook video embedding doesn't seem to be working correctly for a portrait video.

Not specific to Model ≡, yet a particularly well done summary featuring Kim from Like Tesla, partnering with Saul Lopez to provide us with a transatlantic guide to charging standards & adapters... Only missing the CCS, maybe for a future episode!! ;)

Kudo to both of them! Felicidades!! :)

Thank you, @Curt Renz !

Interesting to see the anchor try to ask all these 'difficult', challenging questions that the guest - who knows what he is talking about... ;) - addresses rather positively and encouragingly for T≡SLA... :)

If it would not have been for repeat videos in 2nd half... this started as a fantastic commercial if T≡SLA ever needed one!!

Yet, would have cut about half and leave out Alpha pics - a bit passé now!

Nice try tho' :)
