    Tesla model 3 is coming to the UK in early May, exact costs have not yet been released but will be within Motabilities guidlines for an auto.

    By all accounts it is a very very good car so why shouldn`t we be able to get one?

    If interested why not contact Motability and ask the question, i will be.

    Tesla updates Model S and Model X

    Tesla has rolled out a series of upgrades for its Model S and Model X ranges, which include an increase in range by more than 10%, improved power and torque figures, and new adaptive suspension.

    Newly built models in the saloon and SUV line-up now see an estimated WLTP range of up to 375 miles for the Model S Long Range, and 315 miles for the Model X Long Range.

    The 100 kWh batter for both models remains the same as before, with the increase in range coming from a new drivetrain design. The revised electric motors also increase power and torque available to the driver, improving acceleration, though these new figures are not currently available.

    Faster charging capabilities have been added, increasing the charging speeds to up to 200 kW on the latest V3 Superchargers, and 145 kW on the current V2 Superchargers. Improvements enable customers to recharge up to 50% faster according to Tesla.

    The new fully adaptive suspension has been designed to provide an ‘ultra-cushioned’ feel when cruising at motorway speeds, and added responsiveness when in dynamic mode. A predictive model has been designed in-house to anticipate how the damping adjusts, based on road, speed, and other driver & vehicle inputs.

    Tesla has improved the levelling systems to keep the car low when at speed, reducing aerodynamic drag. The suspension system can receive over-the-air updates, meaning the system can be improved further in future.

    Other improvements have seen new wheel bearings and tyres fitted to increase range and refinement, while Tesla is bringing back an entry level Standard Range model, which starts the Model S line-up at £72,550, and the Model X Standard Range model starts at £76,550 – both including the UK Plug-in Car Grant. The former has an estimated WLTP range of 280 miles on a single, and the latter at 230 miles.

    Existing Model S and Model X customers who are looking to buy a new Performance version of either model will be offered the Ludicrous Mode upgrade free of charge.

    The revisions are already being added to models on the production line, with new orders benefiting from the upgrades.

    Dave I haven’t seen the confirmed price for the Tesla S in the UK but it is almost certain to be less than £35000.

    Well I have done my bit I called Motability today to have a rant about the AP on a Zoe and then went on to ask about Tesla and apparently they can see what is coming up on the scheme and they have currently not even been in touch with Tesla.

    East Yorkshire.

    You would think motobility would want as many EV cars on the scheme as possible because it would look good for them, and they would be very popular with us, and we would be doing something for the planet.

    Maybe they might make an exception for the Tesla 3 because it’s not that far away from the cap. Although when you look at the AP on the ZOE the Tesla’s would probably be 10k and a kidney.

    How to buy an electric car

    Buying an electric car can be easier than you think, we visit a new type of EV and hybrid dealership to find out how easy
    Electric cars may be the future but they are still very new to most people with knowledge about the technology, how to use it and what the big brands are offering being hard to come by. The first step to buying an electric car for most people then, is to get up to speed with the change in usage patterns that EVs demand and the type of products that are available from brands like Audi  , Nissan, BMW and Volkswagen and more. Usefully, a new type of car showroom aims to help you do just that.

    Charging point operator, Chargemaster, has opened the UK’s first multi-brand EV showroom. Dubbed the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre (EVEC), it gives motorists the chance to explore the latest electric and hybrid cars, although no cars can be bought at the facility.

    To be honest motability operations  is not interested in helping the planet as it tells me they are run by the banks for profit so thats almost ffff off for us disabled as they see us as profit makers for the banks that let us down in the crash.

    I think a car like the Tesla is a long way away from ever being on the scheme but if anyone watched top gear last week, Chris harris tested the hot version against a bmw m3 and it blitzed the BMW in everything but the actual raw chassis driving experience, which tbh not many on here would or could be allowed under scheme rules to track day one or drive one on the road to its max limits.

    But interestingly he said he thought in a few years they would supply main stream manufacturers the batteries, so one day their maybe a Kia or ford or vw etc version with the best batteries available.   So who knows what’s in store say in another 10;years?

    hi can I ask why the Tesla model 3 is not on Motability !!!!!!! I as a customer would love this to available thanks.

    Narinder the problem we have just now is motability works on getting large discounts from manufacturers. At present BEVs are being snapped up as they leave the factory and in some circumstances people are waiting a year for their car to be delivered. So the manufacturers don’t need to deal with motability as they are selling their BEVs at full price.

    Another problem is that it is unlikely that Tesla could deal with the demand from motability if the Tesla model 3 did come on the scheme.

    Narinder I have not noticed you posting before so if this is your first post, welcome to the forum.

    Whilst being very good electric vehicles, according to most reviews, their build quality is appalling, particularly in the paintwork and body gaps.

    Why are the bodywork gaps and paintwork on EV’s any different from other cars?

    Think he means Tesla are doing a piss poor job of fitting body panels and giving them a crap paint job.

    I have watched and read many articles about Tesla cars and only a couple have been negative.

    The VAST majority of buyers are perfectly happy by all accounts.

    I’ve got to say all the Tesla cars I’ve seen have looked spot on.

    They had a shop in the Westfield centre near us, I was always impressed by the paint choice and interiors.

    Im surprised there have been build quality issues.

    If motability are adding the Volvo xc40 phev (which costs more than a model 3) why can’t they come to an agreement with tesla

    itll only add to Tesla’s sales, every year they don’t make a profit maybe motability sales could help turn that around

    some will say the waiting times will be too long but I’m sure people (who already have cars) wouldn’t mind waiting a year+ for one to be ready
