According to statistics, annual sales of the Tesla Model 3 in Taiwan will total 5,500 in 2021, representing a 20% growth rate compared to 2020, while sales of the Tesla Model 3 in 2022 have already accumulated 4,553 as of July. Harga Mobil Tesla from $1.755 million, and even after a few price hikes, the Tesla Model 3 is still more competitive than the electric cars offered by the traditional car manufacturers. But Tesla has no previous experience of building cars, so will the hot-selling Model 3 really appeal to all electric car lovers? In fact, it is difficult, as the Model 3 still has a number of shortcomings, but at the price of the Model 3, is there a better option? There doesn’t seem to be one at the moment.
The concealed door handle of the Model 3 may not be easy to use, but the fact that it is completely integrated into the door is a real novelty. The Tesla Model 3 has all the functions on the centre console, including dashboard information and air conditioning, and the 15-inch centre screen replaces all the traditional control panels. It is also worth mentioning the innovation and power of Tesla’s vehicle software, which is updated online via OTA without the need to return to the factory, providing owners with new features from time to time, making it a great novelty for them.
The Tesla Model 3’s Auto Pilot is also more accurate than the same features found in other car brands. The Tesla Model 3’s Auto Pilot is not only highly accurate, it automatically keeps the car in the middle of the lane and accelerates and decelerates smoothly, giving the driver a good sense of safety. The electric car does not have the noise and idling of a fuel engine, so acceleration is fast and smooth, and maintenance costs are low. Overall, the interior design of the Tesla Model 3 is quite good in terms of practicality.
Despite its high level of innovation, the Tesla Model 3 also has a number of shortcomings, such as the tendency for the panels and upholstery to have large tolerances, which is unacceptable for detail-oriented owners. The Tesla Model 3 also suffers from a poorly intuitive driver interface, as the Tesla Model 3 requires the driver to set the temperature of the air conditioning or the speed of the windscreen wipers via the screen, making it somewhat cumbersome and distracting to touch the screen while driving. It is also uncomfortable to sit for long periods of time with the front seat not being supportive and the rear seat surface being half-way up.
Some Tesla Model 3 owners have also reported that the front trunk is prone to water ingress and that they had to purchase their own waterproofing tape to improve the problem. Other shortcomings such as loud wind cutting when driving, the A-pillar easily blocking the driver’s view, the tight maintenance schedule and the long waiting time for appointments are all issues that must be considered before buying a Tesla Model 3.
Is the Tesla Model 3 a good choice for an electric car in the $2 million range? I think so, because the whole point of buying an electric car is to get a better sense of technology and to enjoy the innovative design.
On 13 August, Tesla Taiwan made another change to its Model 3 sales information, but instead of a price change, it announced the temporary suspension of the Long Range model, with availability expected to resume from 2023.
Tesla is temporarily suspending sales of the Model 3 Long Range in Taiwan for a number of reasons, including The main reason for the temporary suspension of the Model 3 Long Range in Taiwan is related to production constraints, as evidenced by the fact that for some time now Tesla has only been selling a single model of the Model 3 in Taiwan.
This time, apart from the temporary suspension of the Long Range model, the prices of the other two Model 3 variants have not been changed, remaining at $1.7549 million for the rear-wheel drive version and $2.6689 million for the Performance version. The Tesla brand strength in Taiwan is also being tested.
