Rumble user ‘ricardoapparicio0’ decided to test out the autopilot feature on Tesla’s Model 3 and what better way to demonstrate the machine’s nerves of steel, then by sending it where all season drivers hate to go - in stop-and-go traffic! They drove for 45 minutes on 5S through Camp Pendleton in Southern California and the car performed like a champ, starting and stopping at the right time, always putting its passengers’ safety first!

Within a week of unveiling the Model 3 in 2016, Tesla said, they had taken 325,000 reservations for the four-door sedan, more than triple the number of Model S sedans sold by the end of 2015. These reservations represent potential sales of over US$14 billion. By August 2017, there were 455,000 net reservations, and an average of 1,800 reservations were being added per day.

Tesla's Model 3 is designed to achieve a "5-Star Safety Rating" and is expected to have a drag coefficient of 0.23. This will be lower than the Tesla Model S drag coefficient of Cd=0.24, which in 2014 was the lowest among current production cars. To put things further into perspective, the average modern automobile achieves a drag coefficient of between 0.30 and 0.35.

All in all, this is a very smooth ride!
