The driver as the older model of S and the new model 3, Steve went to an epic state road 48 A trip visited 107 Tesla stores , meeting more than 500 Tesla employees, and uncovered some useful hacks for a trip to Tesla. Here, Steve compares both Tesla sedans, Model S vs. Model 3, during his extraordinary travel adventurous trips.
On August 1, 2018, I'm from being the first person to drive Tesla to every single US Tesla stored in 48 countries. I drove my 2012 Model S P85 for the first 12,100 miles and 42 states east of Arizona. After that, I took my new 3 Performance model for the last 6 states. The model 3 began with 25 miles on an odometer and ended up with a 4.370 mile journey only two flawless weeks later.

Let's say Tesla came long way for 6 years. My 2012 Model S is still an incredible car and it's still years ahead of any non-Tesla on the road, but Model 3 is a shiny new object …
So, which one is the best road travel vehicle?
My old model 2012 does not have an autopilot. So, I actually had to drive all 12,000 miles to myself. Oh, horror!
Those who say that autopilot is a game change is not a joke. It really does road trips to the breeze from most of your trips is the highway mile where Autopilot shines
To Supercharging, 3 is fantastic. Because it is smaller and more efficient, it charges faster than S, which means less charging time to go through the same distance. Also, with the Long Range battery has a range of over 300 miles, it also has a more sweet spot faster charging compared to my P85 S, which has a range of 240 miles now. (FYI, the batteries charge much faster than the first 3/4 charge than the final one-fourth to finish it. This is why I always suggest getting the biggest battery you can afford if travel is in your future.) [19659031
The Old Model S still has several advantages over the new Model 3. First: Size. Frunk is more, but the back / body is also. It is convenient for luggage / accessories, as well as for sleeping in the car.
Camping for cars
It's obvious that a huge percentage of people will have a zero desire to try this, but you will be surprised how many Tesla owners really make the Camp in their cars. Believe it or not, I'm 6 & # 39; 3 "and can still sleep completely exhausted in model 3, but this is definitely harder than the model S, and the additional irritation of the shelf is not removed, which limits your range
