    The Tesla Model 3 Performance is the best Tesla yet. Today I'm reviewing the Model 3 Performance, and I'm going to discuss why it's the best Tesla -- and I'm going to show you all the cool features of the Model 3 Performance. Then I'm going to get it out on the road and drive the Tesla Model 3 Performance.

      Who will be more upset by this video? Tesla people, saying I wasn't positive enough? Or car people, saying I'm biased towards Tesla? Today, we find out!

      1. B Cool

        Ski Dubai ? No easy autopilot for you to understand the external cost to 3rd parties. You could pipe the exhaust of a Silverado into a kindergarten for a lesson but I wouldn't recommend it.

      2. zrRyan2

        @Eric Simonson thanks for the details of fit and finish ;)

      3. Eric Simonson

        @zrRyan2 Yah, he didn't talk about fit and finish, but I've just picked up a Model 3 and the paint is way better than it was. Also, no noticeable misalignments in the body panels or doors. Doug also did not talk at all about the upkeep or fuel costs in his ratings. He still has a ways to go in the shift to the EV world.

      4. GrammarPolice

        I'm just upset you used roughly 20 minutes of the video talking about the dumb games on the infotainment center

      5. Devin Owens

        @Gabe Hammar 333rth da fuk I can't even say that shit it's 333rd bro pls. Quit making everybody feel all wierd just trying to read it.

    2. Chris Sappenfield

      Even Tesla's games have microtransactions. EA must have made that race game

    3. Macky Mode

      No volume knob is an immediate turn-off for me, nice try

    4. Stephan G

      Hi Doug, who supplied the carbon look interiors central console and dashboard?? looks very good.

    5. MrBachelorhouse

      Can it remember mirror and steering wheel settings for different drivers? That's much more useful than fart mode..

    6. kanyaugatiejagwo

      a.k.k 'Mileage and battery fire worry cars...' car can light up at any moment while parked even without being charged. software features are ... yawn yawn

    7. yarpos

      once again a "review" that manages to completley dodge handling and performance endurance. Lap time for a known circuit?

    8. WarpedTrekker

      Tesla needs to focus on more useful stuff, and get rid of the useless kiddie stupid junk in the infotainment system.

    9. MP498

      There is a software update coming soon called "Casino Mode" which allows you to set the A/C the same as "Dog Mode" but it's for when you want to leave the kids in the car and go inside and play the pokies.

    10. MP498

      The panel gaps look up to the usual standard...

    11. Shoedi .L

      When I hear Sentry mode.... I instantly imagine a Sentry Gun popping out of the trunk....

    12. Shane D

      Oh my gosh Doug I can't believe you think the rs3 looks better than the m3 cs

    13. Ethan Carberry-Holt

      Tesla missed the opportunity to call Caraoke Carpool Karaoke

      1. Seawolf

        CBS would come down so hard on Tesla lol. That's Corden's thing...

    14. Jon Keefer

      come on, doug. i want a demonstration of sentry mode with the glass break feature!

    15. Kerry Webster

      @30:32 - This doesn't suck at all.

    16. Gary Couch

      Dog mode should be extended to include child mode. If a child is accidently left in the car, the climate control will turn on.

    17. SpawnPoiint

      You make me want to drive my Tesla even more haha!

    18. xchopp

      34:01 Doug, there's something wrong with your vehicle, some weird stuff is coming out the back! What _is_ that? It looks dangerous!

      1. Aditya Singh

        Tire smoke

    19. xchopp

      Here's what you came here for: 28:24

    20. friggincanvee

      Heated rear seats controlled from the front only? Poor.


      Tesla is car geek heaven. If you like going fast and can geek out on tons of technology, you have to get a Tesla. Model 3 Perf is the best car I've ever had.

    22. Hannah Witt

      I thought Tesla was all about ecology, but they replace biodegradable leather with 'future landfill" leatherette, to save money and appease the snowflakes. Way to go Tesla.

      1. Hannah Witt

        ​@Seawolf Please look up the word 'mantra'. The traditional car manufacturers are definitely making more of an effort to be greener, but there is a distinct difference between that and a company whose whole ethos is to make a difference, in terms of ecology and to sell their product as an 'alternative' with that rhetoric. If you can't see that, then you are completely blinded by your brand loyalty. Which is exactly what Musk is a genius at doing.

      2. Seawolf

        @Hannah Witt All those manufacturers publish sustainability reports (Tesla has only started doing so) and have sustainability goals, so yes, they do have a "saving the world" mantra. Particularly VW Group ever since the emissions scandal.

      3. Hannah Witt

        @Seawolf Those European manufacturers aren't selling their product on the back of a "saving the planet" mantra.

      4. Seawolf

        Most European manufacturers, (VW Group, BMW, Mercedes) sell more vegan leather than real leather. Just saying. And optioning up to the full vegan experience is an extra $1,000, I believe.

    23. Brian Cossey

      You are odd and know nothing about cars, you are a super dork

    24. harryman11

      The last update now gives you 0-60 in 2.8 FYI. Got to love a car that gets better/faster with time.

      1. Aditya Singh

        It's like getting a new car with every update.

    25. Tay Gumi

      A hud I think that's maybe contra productive, by the view triangle when you driving (Street/outside in front, Speedometer etc., Mirrors, then again). ^^

    26. Brayden Haines

      Okay how much are these things in AUD? I wanna play the games 😂

      1. Seawolf

        If you're in VIC, with all the taxes and everything, around $74k base model, you also get all the games. Not so bad considering the other European equivalents. But like NZ, no incentives yet.

    27. Tay Gumi

      I will buy this Tesla only because of the games. :DD

    28. irixsyncd

      So the windows are not automatically raising upon locking your car? o.0

    29. Mike

      You know what Tesla should come up with? Charging cafes, with their v3 supercharging taking only 20 mins they could have a place to pull in, park and plug in. Go inside have a coffee or whatever and then boom 350 more miles. Could be the exact same as Starbucks but with v3 charging in each parking spot.

      1. Seawolf

        They have Tesla Lounges in some areas that are exactly that. Supercharger locations usually are next to shopping centres or restaurants etc. It tells you on the map what facilities there are, and also how many charging spots are available.

    30. Chip LeVan

      You make "S" from the bottom up?

    31. Jarico Harris

      So who else thought it was a roach crawling on the screen?

    32. Rehak Mate

      Like they slaughter cows for their leather instead of their meat and then just use their leather too, bruh. Now they should just throw it out.

      1. Seawolf

        I mean, there's still the handbag industry amongst many, many other uses for leather.

    33. Nunya Bidnnezz

      no cooled seats... dealbreaker.

    34. AlphaLion

      Imagine seeing a parking Tesla with it's front wheels going all over the place XD I also like how they have the casual Elon Musk memes as well, like "Mars" and "Boring" fart XD Genius software developers

    35. Boi Guy

      This tesla got an update it goes from 0-60 in 2.9 sec noe

    36. Fresh Towels

      I would love to play need for speed I’m a Tesla. Also this would look like your absolutely retarted to someone looking at you from the outside

    37. Mohamed Khalife

      How did the owner get carbon fiber design instead of wood with the black interior? Is that aftermarket?

    38. Absoluteuno


    39. Absoluteuno


    40. Absoluteuno


    41. Absoluteuno

      when they did something I felt that

    42. Mothusi Raseroka

      Shout out to Doug for rocking that South African shirt. Repping my home town and paying homage to Elon Musk's birth country. 🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦

      1. Hieronymous Lex

        Mothusi Raseroka too bad you drove out all the geniuses like Elon with your racist bullshit

    43. Billy Bob JR

      Better than Taycan. In my opinion

    44. Adrian Vintila

      "It can detect something like glas break and alert the owner" I wonder if the new Tesla Pickup comes with that option 😂😂😂

    45. Ivan Melnychenko

      Doug mode

    46. vatsal gohil

      imagine if tesla had forza horizon 4 instead of the beach buggy game !!!!

    47. Simba Sosa

      I could see someone driving the car when the car supposed to be on smart summon

    48. Abijith Jayakumar

      He should meet Marques Brownlee

    49. bikinggreg

      Maybe more time on build quality and less time on fart applications.

    50. Danny Cupper

      f**k your video. You not gonna catch me dead watching a 20 second non skippable ad!

    51. YoStu

      I guess you know when Tesla owner is HC gamer when his steering rack is shot and front tyres worn unevenly

    52. Lance Boil

      Doug . thanks for that review... have you considered using Steven Hawkins voice simulator...that would be easier to listen

    53. David Livings

      Watch this car knock it out of the park in every way, then this BOZO grades it a 67 out of 100 because it doesn't have "simple" cooled seats, and is a not a cop magnet. BOO! fart mode to you !

    54. ReCycle Spinning

      Wow,, great so somebody steals your phone and they can steal your car,, or another scenario you loose your phone and how do you get in your car.?

      1. Seawolf

        There are two other methods of unlocking the vehicle, key fob and key card, and you can track your vehicle at all times. Furthermore you can also add a password protect on the screen. So, they're not getting far if anywhere at all.

    55. ReCycle Spinning

      Wow, I can't believe they can make summon mode legal. I see lawsuits already. You summon it,, it is coming to you. Another driver gets angry because it is going to slowly and blocking them from pulling out, or malfunctions and kills a kid , or a kid or ball bounces and the Tesla goes into some emergency stop mode, somebody is in an emergency situation the Tesla once again blocks the person in their parking spot. Wow I guess all that matters now is sales💲💲💵💲💵 and consumerism. 😔💲💲

    56. ReCycle Spinning

      So you forget to put it in dog mode, 🙄 and you thought you put it in dog mode, , your dog dies any way. .😔. too much tech. Sorry but they need to have some hard facts if this is more or less pollution than a gas engined car. Personally I think humans are addicted to cars and is our great downfall. Public transit evolution is needed and walkable development not suburbia requiring cars .

    57. ReCycle Spinning

      Can someone please answer for me ,, is an electric car more environmentally friendly than a gas car, because electricity still has to be produced and generated, also the batteries still have to be produced and generated???

      1. Seawolf

        Yes, it is, government reports have been commissioned and peer reviewed University papers. Not all too hard to find them. Lithium ion batteries can be reused and recycled. For example the AFC Ajax stadium is powered by old EV batteries. The metals can be recycled 100% and can be remade into new batteries, Umicore, for example, does this for phone batteries and now lithium ion car batteries. Furthermore battery technology is improving all the time, becoming more efficient and relying less on rare earth minerals.

    58. CoolSlayer131

      Can someone explain the 400horsepower? Im an auto mechanic (in school program) but tesla is... eletric. How is horsepower a thing? Did he mean twerk?

      1. Seawolf

        That's the amount of equivalent power the motors produce, there's two on the Performance.

    59. N

      "no cooled seats?!?" Yeah if you want to drain the battery

    60. Thiaguinho Oitodois

      Fuck you Doug!

    61. Shane Norman

      I'd be interested to hear of users' experience with Tesla touch-screens. Without having tried a Tesla, I think that actual buttons, ergonomically shaped and sited, are much safer because they can be located and operated by feel, without having to take your eyes off the road. Operating a touch-screen might, therefore, be a possibly dangerous distraction, especially at night (when their brightness could also compromise the driver's night vision). What's the truth?

      1. Seawolf

        It's not so bad... It takes getting used to, but yeah, sometimes doing it by feel using physical buttons is better. But you've also got that autopilot if you really do need to fiddle with the settings. But they made all the important controls large and obvious. There's a night mode for night time driving. And most of the other things, such as lights and wipers are automatic and actually useful unlike other which really do need manual setting. You really have to try it out for yourself for a week or something.

    62. Harry Arteza

      Why does it have those little black door handles, not seen those before? Is that standard on the performance?

      1. Seawolf

        I don't think it's stock...

    63. GreyDay UnderHey

      If this available in blue I want it

      1. Seawolf

        @GreyDay UnderHey Oh, shouldn't be too bad... VW's got the ID series of vehicles, I'm sure Kia and Hyundai offer EV's there too. Tesla is very slowly expanding eastwards. They've got a factory planned for Berlin, so maybe when you get a licence things will be better lol

      2. GreyDay UnderHey

        Somewere in europe

      3. Seawolf

        @GreyDay UnderHey Oh, that last part is an issue. Where do you live?

      4. GreyDay UnderHey

        I would really like to have one because I love electric cars but in my country there aren't places that fix electric cars also there aren't public chargers and these are the stuff that prevent me from buying an electric car......I also don't have a licence lol😂😂😂😂

      5. Seawolf

        It is! I got mine in blue.

    64. Chang Ly

      Tesla car is stupid n wastes of time take to to charge n how long the core of electric going to last n when electric core die out how much will it cost to fix it so in my word Tesla is piece of shit car

      1. Seawolf

        8 year 192,000km warranty. $5k-$7k to replace the battery modules. Repairs cost about the same as European luxury manufacturers, and charging times, with regular use? Zero, because you charge it like your phone, at night. I don't charge mine everyday.

    65. Sami Saleh

      Doug's the type of guy that quirks and features

    66. Thomas Rock

      Doug says the Model 3 is the best Tesla, yet his stupid "Doug Score" chart clearly has the Model X rated much higher than the Model 3. I guess the Doug Score ratings are basically meaningless.

    67. Moist Towelettes

      Man i wish i wasn't poor :( One of these together with my motorbikes would be such a nice combination.

    68. Thomas Rock

      28:28 Doug has been watching too many Matt Maran videos.

    69. bf3ram

      Can't wait until the Cybertruck says hold my unbreakable windows

    70. MAW Spezzy

      Doug really did wore the perfect shirt for this vid. 😂
