1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,919
so this video is gonna be a review of

2
00:00:01,360 –> 00:00:05,440
the car as well as answer all the common

3
00:00:03,919 –> 00:00:08,639
questions that you guys have okay so

4
00:00:05,440 –> 00:00:10,320
firstly how do you unlock the car there

5
00:00:08,639 –> 00:00:12,240
are two ways first you can use your

6
00:00:10,320 –> 00:00:13,920
phone okay there’s the tesla app on your

7
00:00:12,240 –> 00:00:16,000
phone i hope you can see that the other

8
00:00:13,920 –> 00:00:17,840
way is actually to use a tesla card

9
00:00:16,000 –> 00:00:19,439
which i will show you later on so you

10
00:00:17,840 –> 00:00:21,840
can control quite a number of things

11
00:00:19,439 –> 00:00:23,920
here you can lock unlock the car you can

12
00:00:21,840 –> 00:00:27,080
turn on the aircon while you’re outside

13
00:00:23,920 –> 00:00:27,080
the car

14
00:00:27,580 –> 00:00:36,800
[Music]

15
00:00:35,200 –> 00:00:39,360
okay one thing i want to point out also

16
00:00:36,800 –> 00:00:42,079
is that because my phone is with me

17
00:00:39,360 –> 00:00:43,360
right now so once i’m near the car i can

18
00:00:42,079 –> 00:00:45,840
actually

19
00:00:43,360 –> 00:00:45,840
unlock it

20
00:00:46,960 –> 00:00:52,480
okay once you enter the car

21
00:00:49,520 –> 00:00:53,840
there’s no on off button

22
00:00:52,480 –> 00:00:55,840
all right so once you enter the car the

23
00:00:53,840 –> 00:00:57,039
car is automatically on so if you want

24
00:00:55,840 –> 00:00:59,199
to start driving all you have to do is

25
00:00:57,039 –> 00:01:00,960
just put your foot on the brake and you

26
00:00:59,199 –> 00:01:02,480
just push this lever down so the gear

27
00:01:00,960 –> 00:01:03,760
shifter is exactly the same as you get

28
00:01:02,480 –> 00:01:06,720
in a mercedes

29
00:01:03,760 –> 00:01:08,240
so it’s a park reverse neutral and drive

30
00:01:06,720 –> 00:01:10,479
so you just push it all the way down to

31
00:01:08,240 –> 00:01:13,520
get it into drive and then you can just

32
00:01:10,479 –> 00:01:16,000
start moving okay once you are done

33
00:01:13,520 –> 00:01:17,360
driving then how do you turn off the car

34
00:01:16,000 –> 00:01:19,040
you don’t actually have to turn off the

35
00:01:17,360 –> 00:01:20,240
car just press this button on the door

36
00:01:19,040 –> 00:01:22,560
here

37
00:01:20,240 –> 00:01:24,560
okay open the door

38
00:01:22,560 –> 00:01:25,360
you can lock it the same way using your

39
00:01:24,560 –> 00:01:28,080
phone

40
00:01:25,360 –> 00:01:28,080
let me show you

41
00:01:28,159 –> 00:01:33,360
so the car is locked you actually don’t

42
00:01:30,560 –> 00:01:34,799
have to lock it manually what happens is

43
00:01:33,360 –> 00:01:37,520
there’s a setting in the car once you

44
00:01:34,799 –> 00:01:38,960
walk away or once like after a certain

45
00:01:37,520 –> 00:01:42,320
time has passed the car will

46
00:01:38,960 –> 00:01:43,920
automatically lock itself

47
00:01:42,320 –> 00:01:45,200
okay so let’s say right now you don’t

48
00:01:43,920 –> 00:01:47,680
have your phone with you how do you

49
00:01:45,200 –> 00:01:50,079
enter the car you can use this tesla

50
00:01:47,680 –> 00:01:52,079
card this card is actually programmed to

51
00:01:50,079 –> 00:01:55,439
this car so you just take your tesla

52
00:01:52,079 –> 00:01:58,000
card and you tap it on the b pillar here

53
00:01:55,439 –> 00:01:59,840
and you can see the door unlocked once

54
00:01:58,000 –> 00:02:02,960
you enter the car already you actually

55
00:01:59,840 –> 00:02:04,960
have to put your card over here okay

56
00:02:02,960 –> 00:02:07,119
behind the cup holder

57
00:02:04,960 –> 00:02:09,520
because there’s a transponder

58
00:02:07,119 –> 00:02:11,360
underneath so it will detect the card

59
00:02:09,520 –> 00:02:13,200
once the car detects the card then you

60
00:02:11,360 –> 00:02:14,959
can drive off okay and then once you are

61
00:02:13,200 –> 00:02:16,800
done driving the car same thing you have

62
00:02:14,959 –> 00:02:19,760
your car you just tap it

63
00:02:16,800 –> 00:02:19,760
and the car will lock

64
00:02:19,840 –> 00:02:23,680
okay so what is the interior like very

65
00:02:22,319 –> 00:02:26,080
first thing i think you all can tell

66
00:02:23,680 –> 00:02:27,760
that the interior is very minimalistic

67
00:02:26,080 –> 00:02:29,200
there’s not a lot going on i mean

68
00:02:27,760 –> 00:02:30,640
there’s practically nothing apart from

69
00:02:29,200 –> 00:02:32,800
the steering wheel and the screen in

70
00:02:30,640 –> 00:02:34,400
terms of our interior material quality

71
00:02:32,800 –> 00:02:36,319
fit and finishing i have to say it’s

72
00:02:34,400 –> 00:02:39,120
quite good i think they use premium

73
00:02:36,319 –> 00:02:41,440
quality materials in the touch points in

74
00:02:39,120 –> 00:02:43,920
this car so for example the door handle

75
00:02:41,440 –> 00:02:45,280
the buttons the steering wheel the

76
00:02:43,920 –> 00:02:47,760
leather material on the steering wheel

77
00:02:45,280 –> 00:02:49,440
feels very nice to hold all the plastics

78
00:02:47,760 –> 00:02:51,519
are actually smooth finish so it’s not

79
00:02:49,440 –> 00:02:54,160
the like hard scratchy plastic that you

80
00:02:51,519 –> 00:02:56,080
get in like a toyotas for example and

81
00:02:54,160 –> 00:02:57,760
over here um yeah wireless charging my

82
00:02:56,080 –> 00:02:59,599
phone is charging over there and if you

83
00:02:57,760 –> 00:03:01,920
notice in a lot of cars the wireless

84
00:02:59,599 –> 00:03:03,440
charging is actually like flat okay so

85
00:03:01,920 –> 00:03:04,879
but in this car it’s actually tilted

86
00:03:03,440 –> 00:03:06,480
towards you so it’s easier for you to

87
00:03:04,879 –> 00:03:09,360
see notifications

88
00:03:06,480 –> 00:03:11,920
so over here um it’s all leather okay

89
00:03:09,360 –> 00:03:13,680
very nice leather this is a soft closing

90
00:03:11,920 –> 00:03:15,120
door for your

91
00:03:13,680 –> 00:03:16,080
storage space over here it’s actually

92
00:03:15,120 –> 00:03:16,879
quite deep

93
00:03:16,080 –> 00:03:19,200
okay

94
00:03:16,879 –> 00:03:22,159
this is a plastic or yeah this is

95
00:03:19,200 –> 00:03:23,120
plastic this is a metal

96
00:03:22,159 –> 00:03:25,120
leather

97
00:03:23,120 –> 00:03:27,120
quality of the leather on the seats feel

98
00:03:25,120 –> 00:03:29,840
very premium and because it’s a white in

99
00:03:27,120 –> 00:03:32,159
color it looks more special than what

100
00:03:29,840 –> 00:03:33,680
you get in regular cars i think just the

101
00:03:32,159 –> 00:03:36,959
color scheme you know it’s very bright

102
00:03:33,680 –> 00:03:38,640
inside here and the materials they use

103
00:03:36,959 –> 00:03:42,400
this is

104
00:03:38,640 –> 00:03:44,560
not a cheap feeling interior

105
00:03:42,400 –> 00:03:46,560
this is the default screen that you see

106
00:03:44,560 –> 00:03:48,480
when you start the car the icons over

107
00:03:46,560 –> 00:03:49,920
here are all fixed there’s quite a lot

108
00:03:48,480 –> 00:03:52,480
of things going on over here so i’m just

109
00:03:49,920 –> 00:03:54,959
going to briefly walk you through the

110
00:03:52,480 –> 00:03:56,720
more important stuff okay so you can see

111
00:03:54,959 –> 00:03:58,840
on this screen is basically your car’s

112
00:03:56,720 –> 00:04:01,200
display and when you drive uh it will

113
00:03:58,840 –> 00:04:03,599
actually turn the orientation and then

114
00:04:01,200 –> 00:04:05,680
it will um start showing you like the

115
00:04:03,599 –> 00:04:08,400
cars and all that around you this uh

116
00:04:05,680 –> 00:04:10,480
marking over here all right 70 cm 76 am

117
00:04:08,400 –> 00:04:12,159
this actually shows you the distance

118
00:04:10,480 –> 00:04:14,319
between you and like any objects in

119
00:04:12,159 –> 00:04:16,079
front or behind you okay next is the

120
00:04:14,319 –> 00:04:19,680
navigation i have to say that this

121
00:04:16,079 –> 00:04:21,840
navigation is actually more accurate and

122
00:04:19,680 –> 00:04:24,639
it’s better to use than your actual

123
00:04:21,840 –> 00:04:27,360
phone’s navigation because it’s really

124
00:04:24,639 –> 00:04:29,120
on the dot like your location is very

125
00:04:27,360 –> 00:04:31,360
it tracks it really tracks you in real

126
00:04:29,120 –> 00:04:32,880
time and it doesn’t really mess up like

127
00:04:31,360 –> 00:04:34,560
google maps or waste like you know

128
00:04:32,880 –> 00:04:36,880
sometimes they like lose connection and

129
00:04:34,560 –> 00:04:38,880
all that speaking of connection uh this

130
00:04:36,880 –> 00:04:42,080
car comes with a sim card inside that’s

131
00:04:38,880 –> 00:04:44,400
why there’s an lte over there right now

132
00:04:42,080 –> 00:04:47,040
that sim card subscription is free but

133
00:04:44,400 –> 00:04:49,440
in the future tesla may start charging

134
00:04:47,040 –> 00:04:51,759
owners for it so the very first one is

135
00:04:49,440 –> 00:04:53,600
this vehicle settings over here so you

136
00:04:51,759 –> 00:04:56,000
can see that you have all these

137
00:04:53,600 –> 00:04:58,000
controls on the side lightness screen

138
00:04:56,000 –> 00:05:00,560
clean mode is very interesting so when

139
00:04:58,000 –> 00:05:03,360
you tap on this the screen will go dark

140
00:05:00,560 –> 00:05:05,199
so you can actually um wipe or clean the

141
00:05:03,360 –> 00:05:07,600
screen and then once you are done

142
00:05:05,199 –> 00:05:09,440
cleaning you just hold this button and

143
00:05:07,600 –> 00:05:11,919
then it will go back to the

144
00:05:09,440 –> 00:05:13,759
regular infotainment driving

145
00:05:11,919 –> 00:05:16,400
these are your driving modes so you have

146
00:05:13,759 –> 00:05:19,199
a chill or sport so sport mode is like

147
00:05:16,400 –> 00:05:21,440
your regular sport mode in your regular

148
00:05:19,199 –> 00:05:24,800
cars where your throttle input and all

149
00:05:21,440 –> 00:05:27,759
that is sharpened so you get more power

150
00:05:24,800 –> 00:05:29,759
steering mode comfort will make your

151
00:05:27,759 –> 00:05:32,000
steering wheel very light for daily

152
00:05:29,759 –> 00:05:33,840
driving you can put it in sport to

153
00:05:32,000 –> 00:05:35,440
sharpen up the steering wheel

154
00:05:33,840 –> 00:05:37,840
stopping mode this is where the

155
00:05:35,440 –> 00:05:39,360
regenerative braking kicks in so there

156
00:05:37,840 –> 00:05:41,759
are three different modes i usually

157
00:05:39,360 –> 00:05:43,360
leave the car in hole mode because the

158
00:05:41,759 –> 00:05:45,199
regenerative braking actually helps to

159
00:05:43,360 –> 00:05:47,759
charge the battery and slow your car

160
00:05:45,199 –> 00:05:49,120
down so there’s very little uh wear on

161
00:05:47,759 –> 00:05:51,039
your brake pad because you don’t really

162
00:05:49,120 –> 00:05:54,400
use your brakes that much

163
00:05:51,039 –> 00:05:56,160
um roll and creep is uh very similar to

164
00:05:54,400 –> 00:05:58,160
your ice cars where like you let go of

165
00:05:56,160 –> 00:06:00,800
the throttle the car will start to roll

166
00:05:58,160 –> 00:06:03,600
instead of slowing down by quite a quite

167
00:06:00,800 –> 00:06:06,479
a fair bit okay so uh usually i leave it

168
00:06:03,600 –> 00:06:08,319
in hole so um okay sentry mode this is

169
00:06:06,479 –> 00:06:09,840
very interesting you know how dash cams

170
00:06:08,319 –> 00:06:11,280
they actually record everything while

171
00:06:09,840 –> 00:06:12,880
you are parking your car so that let’s

172
00:06:11,280 –> 00:06:15,120
say somebody tries to be funny and you

173
00:06:12,880 –> 00:06:17,039
know sit on your car or try to damage

174
00:06:15,120 –> 00:06:20,479
your car it will actually record that

175
00:06:17,039 –> 00:06:23,039
event so you can play back and watch it

176
00:06:20,479 –> 00:06:24,960
okay so you see over here this red dot

177
00:06:23,039 –> 00:06:29,639
that is where the event occurred so

178
00:06:24,960 –> 00:06:29,639
right now the video is playing

179
00:06:37,520 –> 00:06:41,840
okay guys so it’s another day and um

180
00:06:39,759 –> 00:06:43,120
sentry mode on the tesla model 3 just

181
00:06:41,840 –> 00:06:45,919
captured

182
00:06:43,120 –> 00:06:47,680
another event so let’s see what it is

183
00:06:45,919 –> 00:06:49,440
okay so

184
00:06:47,680 –> 00:06:51,440
you can see there’s someone on the right

185
00:06:49,440 –> 00:06:53,520
side of the car

186
00:06:51,440 –> 00:06:55,199
okay so that’s the security in my house

187
00:06:53,520 –> 00:06:57,520
just uh checking out the car i guess

188
00:06:55,199 –> 00:06:59,919
taking pictures

189
00:06:57,520 –> 00:06:59,919
um

190
00:07:00,160 –> 00:07:02,960
[Music]

191
00:07:01,280 –> 00:07:06,319
yeah i think they’re just checking out

192
00:07:02,960 –> 00:07:06,319
the car looking inside

193
00:07:07,759 –> 00:07:10,080
yep

194
00:07:11,680 –> 00:07:16,560
okay so energy this shows the

195
00:07:14,080 –> 00:07:19,120
consumption and the projected range that

196
00:07:16,560 –> 00:07:21,199
you have so my average range that the

197
00:07:19,120 –> 00:07:24,000
car projects is about 269 kilometers

198
00:07:21,199 –> 00:07:26,000
based on my driving pattern and this uh

199
00:07:24,000 –> 00:07:28,960
graph is actually over a 50 kilometer

200
00:07:26,000 –> 00:07:30,639
period so if you want to see over a 25

201
00:07:28,960 –> 00:07:32,720
kilometer period this was my driving

202
00:07:30,639 –> 00:07:34,400
pattern and over 10 kilometer period

203
00:07:32,720 –> 00:07:38,080
this was my driving pattern which is a

204
00:07:34,400 –> 00:07:40,319
quite um i would say around average

205
00:07:38,080 –> 00:07:42,800
uh driving pattern in terms of

206
00:07:40,319 –> 00:07:45,440
consumption and all that so you can see

207
00:07:42,800 –> 00:07:47,680
past 50 kilometers there were like times

208
00:07:45,440 –> 00:07:49,680
like this where i consumed more power

209
00:07:47,680 –> 00:07:51,759
because i was driving uh quite fast

210
00:07:49,680 –> 00:07:53,440
testing out the acceleration

211
00:07:51,759 –> 00:07:55,440
so it consumed more power and it will

212
00:07:53,440 –> 00:07:57,520
actually bring down my projected range

213
00:07:55,440 –> 00:07:59,280
the projected range is

214
00:07:57,520 –> 00:08:02,479
constantly changing based on your

215
00:07:59,280 –> 00:08:03,599
driving pattern okay so entertainment

216
00:08:02,479 –> 00:08:04,879
um

217
00:08:03,599 –> 00:08:06,800
yeah

218
00:08:04,879 –> 00:08:08,240
you can watch netflix youtube and all

219
00:08:06,800 –> 00:08:10,240
that in your car but the car has to be

220
00:08:08,240 –> 00:08:14,080
in park mode of course this is your

221
00:08:10,240 –> 00:08:16,000
aircon settings so for aircon um you can

222
00:08:14,080 –> 00:08:18,400
actually control the airflow using your

223
00:08:16,000 –> 00:08:20,080
fingers like that so let’s say i do this

224
00:08:18,400 –> 00:08:22,000
the airflow will actually like separate

225
00:08:20,080 –> 00:08:23,759
into two and then you want to adjust the

226
00:08:22,000 –> 00:08:25,039
height of the

227
00:08:23,759 –> 00:08:27,360
aircon like not height you want to

228
00:08:25,039 –> 00:08:29,440
adjust like the flow whether the aircon

229
00:08:27,360 –> 00:08:31,759
like blows the air on top or below you

230
00:08:29,440 –> 00:08:33,760
can adjust using your finger as well

231
00:08:31,759 –> 00:08:37,200
same for the passenger okay you can

232
00:08:33,760 –> 00:08:37,200
adjust the airflow for the passenger

233
00:08:37,279 –> 00:08:40,479
boot space of course is also very

234
00:08:39,120 –> 00:08:43,120
generous

235
00:08:40,479 –> 00:08:45,360
so you can see

236
00:08:43,120 –> 00:08:47,360
i have my bag inside here

237
00:08:45,360 –> 00:08:50,399
it’s quite deep and you can actually

238
00:08:47,360 –> 00:08:52,800
fold the rear seats 60 40 as well to

239
00:08:50,399 –> 00:08:55,360
make more room so the cargo space in the

240
00:08:52,800 –> 00:08:57,279
tesla is about 649

241
00:08:55,360 –> 00:08:59,920
liters and also

242
00:08:57,279 –> 00:09:02,080
just fyi there’s uh you know even more

243
00:08:59,920 –> 00:09:03,360
space below here

244
00:09:02,080 –> 00:09:04,800
and if this

245
00:09:03,360 –> 00:09:07,279
is not enough

246
00:09:04,800 –> 00:09:09,839
okay this is the auto tailgate if this

247
00:09:07,279 –> 00:09:12,560
is not enough you actually have some

248
00:09:09,839 –> 00:09:14,850
more room in the front as well you can

249
00:09:12,560 –> 00:09:16,880
use your tesla app to open it

250
00:09:14,850 –> 00:09:19,120
[Music]

251
00:09:16,880 –> 00:09:19,120
okay

252
00:09:20,000 –> 00:09:23,120
and you can see

253
00:09:21,440 –> 00:09:25,920
yeah you can probably fit like a

254
00:09:23,120 –> 00:09:28,000
backpack and a few uh smaller bags

255
00:09:25,920 –> 00:09:30,480
inside here okay it’s not that deep but

256
00:09:28,000 –> 00:09:32,320
it’s still uh something very useful

257
00:09:30,480 –> 00:09:34,800
compartment wise i have to say it’s

258
00:09:32,320 –> 00:09:36,800
actually quite good so at the side here

259
00:09:34,800 –> 00:09:39,920
you get a very big

260
00:09:36,800 –> 00:09:41,680
door bin you can put in a water bottle

261
00:09:39,920 –> 00:09:43,440
i think you can even fit like two water

262
00:09:41,680 –> 00:09:46,080
bottles inside because there’s no

263
00:09:43,440 –> 00:09:48,320
transmission you can see that the space

264
00:09:46,080 –> 00:09:48,959
here is actually very big it’s very deep

265
00:09:48,320 –> 00:09:50,959
in

266
00:09:48,959 –> 00:09:53,519
and you can close it like that

267
00:09:50,959 –> 00:09:56,399
two cup holders here

268
00:09:53,519 –> 00:09:57,279
another storage space over here also um

269
00:09:56,399 –> 00:10:00,080
pretty

270
00:09:57,279 –> 00:10:02,640
generous i would say glove box you can

271
00:10:00,080 –> 00:10:04,640
open it via

272
00:10:02,640 –> 00:10:05,920
this button here

273
00:10:04,640 –> 00:10:07,680
all right because there’s no button

274
00:10:05,920 –> 00:10:10,240
physical button on the glove box so you

275
00:10:07,680 –> 00:10:12,079
can see the glove box shape uh is also

276
00:10:10,240 –> 00:10:13,600
yeah it’s uh i would say quite a decent

277
00:10:12,079 –> 00:10:16,399
size as well

278
00:10:13,600 –> 00:10:18,640
all right again double bins over there

279
00:10:16,399 –> 00:10:21,200
you get door bins on all four doors okay

280
00:10:18,640 –> 00:10:23,279
the front and rear so rear space is

281
00:10:21,200 –> 00:10:25,600
actually very very good as well this

282
00:10:23,279 –> 00:10:28,160
seat is in my original driver’s position

283
00:10:25,600 –> 00:10:29,920
i didn’t adjust it so you can see i have

284
00:10:28,160 –> 00:10:32,959
quite a good amount of

285
00:10:29,920 –> 00:10:36,000
leg room okay for my feet

286
00:10:32,959 –> 00:10:38,399
one fist or one knuckle of

287
00:10:36,000 –> 00:10:40,560
knee room as well head room also uh

288
00:10:38,399 –> 00:10:42,959
pretty good about one fist or one

289
00:10:40,560 –> 00:10:45,040
knuckle okay you can see over there

290
00:10:42,959 –> 00:10:47,360
then over here there’s no you know

291
00:10:45,040 –> 00:10:51,120
there’s no transmission tunnel

292
00:10:47,360 –> 00:10:53,839
so yeah you get all the legroom in the

293
00:10:51,120 –> 00:10:56,480
world okay so three people in the back

294
00:10:53,839 –> 00:10:58,880
no problem i actually uh ferreted around

295
00:10:56,480 –> 00:11:00,800
some people in the back uh three adults

296
00:10:58,880 –> 00:11:02,079
yeah it’s actually okay and over here

297
00:11:00,800 –> 00:11:04,560
also just want to point out you can

298
00:11:02,079 –> 00:11:05,760
actually uh hang your like tatar or your

299
00:11:04,560 –> 00:11:08,079
you know when you tap out food you can

300
00:11:05,760 –> 00:11:10,800
actually hang them over here on both

301
00:11:08,079 –> 00:11:13,680
sides of the car first thing is it’s

302
00:11:10,800 –> 00:11:15,600
fast it’s very fast okay uh 0 to 100

303
00:11:13,680 –> 00:11:17,440
like i mentioned a lot of times it takes

304
00:11:15,600 –> 00:11:19,680
only 3.3 seconds

305
00:11:17,440 –> 00:11:21,920
so even this is the performance variant

306
00:11:19,680 –> 00:11:24,959
but uh even the base variant it takes

307
00:11:21,920 –> 00:11:27,360
only like what uh 5.6 seconds to get

308
00:11:24,959 –> 00:11:29,200
from 0 to 100 so that’s you know faster

309
00:11:27,360 –> 00:11:31,360
than a golf gti that’s faster than a

310
00:11:29,200 –> 00:11:33,920
base kia stinger this car has different

311
00:11:31,360 –> 00:11:36,240
different driving modes um it’s called

312
00:11:33,920 –> 00:11:39,120
our sports and let me see what the other

313
00:11:36,240 –> 00:11:42,480
ones are okay comfort standard and sport

314
00:11:39,120 –> 00:11:46,000
so um right now i’m in comfort mode

315
00:11:42,480 –> 00:11:47,440
the steering is quite light for city

316
00:11:46,000 –> 00:11:49,760
driving but it’s very good for city

317
00:11:47,440 –> 00:11:51,200
driving it’s very light

318
00:11:49,760 –> 00:11:52,800
not really

319
00:11:51,200 –> 00:11:55,279
i mean it’s sensitive but not really

320
00:11:52,800 –> 00:11:58,320
that sharp but once i put it into sport

321
00:11:55,279 –> 00:12:00,959
the steering gets noticeably heavier and

322
00:11:58,320 –> 00:12:04,160
you know yeah it’s quite i would say a

323
00:12:00,959 –> 00:12:06,800
very pleasant car to drive the biggest

324
00:12:04,160 –> 00:12:08,959
thing here is of course the acceleration

325
00:12:06,800 –> 00:12:10,399
because with that kind of acceleration

326
00:12:08,959 –> 00:12:14,160
it just makes the car

327
00:12:10,399 –> 00:12:16,639
that much more fun to drive all right

328
00:12:14,160 –> 00:12:18,480
also acceleration i can choose between a

329
00:12:16,639 –> 00:12:20,240
chill and sport mode

330
00:12:18,480 –> 00:12:22,079
so uh chill mode means you know like

331
00:12:20,240 –> 00:12:23,760
your regular mode the difference is

332
00:12:22,079 –> 00:12:24,399
quite big especially when i floor the

333
00:12:23,760 –> 00:12:27,040
car

334
00:12:24,399 –> 00:12:29,680
in chill mode um you feel the pull but

335
00:12:27,040 –> 00:12:31,440
it’s not really as strong in sport mode

336
00:12:29,680 –> 00:12:33,440
is where like you really

337
00:12:31,440 –> 00:12:34,639
this is what a tesla is you know you can

338
00:12:33,440 –> 00:12:37,279
really feel

339
00:12:34,639 –> 00:12:39,440
like um you getting pushed back into

340
00:12:37,279 –> 00:12:42,079
your seat side note

341
00:12:39,440 –> 00:12:44,720
uh once i got the car i kept um you know

342
00:12:42,079 –> 00:12:46,880
like floor flooring it and because i

343
00:12:44,720 –> 00:12:48,560
forgot to tilt my head back a few times

344
00:12:46,880 –> 00:12:50,880
i got a you know slight concussion

345
00:12:48,560 –> 00:12:52,399
because it just keep you know hitting my

346
00:12:50,880 –> 00:12:54,160
head against the headrest

347
00:12:52,399 –> 00:12:55,839
in terms of handling for the model 3

348
00:12:54,160 –> 00:12:57,680
it’s very good one of the reasons is

349
00:12:55,839 –> 00:13:00,160
because the battery pack is actually

350
00:12:57,680 –> 00:13:02,240
located in the center of the car and you

351
00:13:00,160 –> 00:13:04,959
know it’s below the floorboard here

352
00:13:02,240 –> 00:13:06,399
right so the battery pack itself is the

353
00:13:04,959 –> 00:13:09,200
one of the heaviest components of the

354
00:13:06,399 –> 00:13:11,120
car it weighs about 500 kilograms

355
00:13:09,200 –> 00:13:13,519
so when you put all that weight um very

356
00:13:11,120 –> 00:13:17,120
close to the center of the car that

357
00:13:13,519 –> 00:13:18,880
actually results in uh almost near 50 50

358
00:13:17,120 –> 00:13:22,320
weight distribution another thing is

359
00:13:18,880 –> 00:13:25,279
also the um electric motor is placed in

360
00:13:22,320 –> 00:13:27,360
front of the rear axle of the car so

361
00:13:25,279 –> 00:13:29,440
they try to put all the heavy components

362
00:13:27,360 –> 00:13:31,360
towards the center of the car and that

363
00:13:29,440 –> 00:13:34,399
results in the center of gravity of the

364
00:13:31,360 –> 00:13:36,399
car being actually very low and it helps

365
00:13:34,399 –> 00:13:39,199
in the handling and the stability as

366
00:13:36,399 –> 00:13:40,079
well so for example uh right now

367
00:13:39,199 –> 00:13:42,240
see

368
00:13:40,079 –> 00:13:44,800
i’m driving fast as in i turn out the

369
00:13:42,240 –> 00:13:47,920
corner very quickly there’s almost no

370
00:13:44,800 –> 00:13:50,720
body roll okay the only um sort of like

371
00:13:47,920 –> 00:13:52,880
movement is uh my body sliding across

372
00:13:50,720 –> 00:13:54,320
the seats because the bolsterings these

373
00:13:52,880 –> 00:13:56,959
are not like sport seats or anything

374
00:13:54,320 –> 00:13:59,360
okay the bolsterings are not as good as

375
00:13:56,959 –> 00:14:02,320
the ones you get in like for example an

376
00:13:59,360 –> 00:14:04,480
amg or an m car handling is very good um

377
00:14:02,320 –> 00:14:07,760
one thing to note is that for me i like

378
00:14:04,480 –> 00:14:09,040
to put the car into sports mode um the

379
00:14:07,760 –> 00:14:10,880
steering

380
00:14:09,040 –> 00:14:12,240
steering mode is also in sports okay

381
00:14:10,880 –> 00:14:15,040
because when i put it in comfort i

382
00:14:12,240 –> 00:14:16,800
noticed that the steering gets very

383
00:14:15,040 –> 00:14:19,199
very loose there’s a lot of free play

384
00:14:16,800 –> 00:14:22,160
okay maybe on camera right now it seems

385
00:14:19,199 –> 00:14:24,320
very um responsive and all which it is

386
00:14:22,160 –> 00:14:26,639
but when you put into sports right the

387
00:14:24,320 –> 00:14:28,480
difference is really very very big in

388
00:14:26,639 –> 00:14:30,800
sports mode the steering just tightens

389
00:14:28,480 –> 00:14:32,959
up it gets a very it gets even more

390
00:14:30,800 –> 00:14:35,839
responsive you can see from here in

391
00:14:32,959 –> 00:14:37,920
terms of handling uh how good is it put

392
00:14:35,839 –> 00:14:40,079
it this way if a 3 series if there were

393
00:14:37,920 –> 00:14:42,639
an electric 3 series i would expect it

394
00:14:40,079 –> 00:14:45,440
to handle like this model 3. okay that’s

395
00:14:42,639 –> 00:14:48,000
how i would describe it comfort wise i

396
00:14:45,440 –> 00:14:51,600
would say it’s about as comfortable as a

397
00:14:48,000 –> 00:14:53,760
three series um it’s not as there’s not

398
00:14:51,600 –> 00:14:55,680
a lot of bounce in the suspension okay

399
00:14:53,760 –> 00:14:57,760
so when you go for uh

400
00:14:55,680 –> 00:14:59,760
hums or anything like that you know some

401
00:14:57,760 –> 00:15:01,600
cars there’s a lot of bounce so the

402
00:14:59,760 –> 00:15:03,600
travel in the suspension is quite a lot

403
00:15:01,600 –> 00:15:05,360
so there’s a bit of bounce there but for

404
00:15:03,600 –> 00:15:07,360
this car i would say the suspension is

405
00:15:05,360 –> 00:15:09,519
more on the stiffer side not so much

406
00:15:07,360 –> 00:15:12,240
travel in the suspension so when it goes

407
00:15:09,519 –> 00:15:14,959
over bumps you do feel a bit but it’s

408
00:15:12,240 –> 00:15:17,120
not uncomfortable okay it’s very i i

409
00:15:14,959 –> 00:15:18,399
would say for a family car it’s

410
00:15:17,120 –> 00:15:20,560
comfortable

411
00:15:18,399 –> 00:15:22,720
noise level because there’s no engine i

412
00:15:20,560 –> 00:15:24,639
really don’t hear anything except for

413
00:15:22,720 –> 00:15:27,440
just tire noise but even the tire noise

414
00:15:24,639 –> 00:15:28,959
is really you know not a lot you know

415
00:15:27,440 –> 00:15:31,279
right now just try to listen for

416
00:15:28,959 –> 00:15:31,279
yourself

417
00:15:33,040 –> 00:15:36,880
yeah you hear the a bit of tire noise

418
00:15:35,040 –> 00:15:38,639
and you hear the electric motor like

419
00:15:36,880 –> 00:15:40,560
worrying but apart from that yeah you

420
00:15:38,639 –> 00:15:42,639
really don’t hear anything else so the

421
00:15:40,560 –> 00:15:44,480
noise insulation i would say is actually

422
00:15:42,639 –> 00:15:46,240
quite good for this sunroof i have to

423
00:15:44,480 –> 00:15:48,240
point something out some of you may be

424
00:15:46,240 –> 00:15:49,519
thinking uh with this big sunroof like

425
00:15:48,240 –> 00:15:51,519
this it’s gonna get very hot in

426
00:15:49,519 –> 00:15:54,240
singapore because of the heat but

427
00:15:51,519 –> 00:15:57,199
actually it doesn’t get hot at all tesla

428
00:15:54,240 –> 00:15:58,959
mentioned that this uh sunroof actually

429
00:15:57,199 –> 00:16:00,800
um there’s like some heat reflecting

430
00:15:58,959 –> 00:16:04,240
technology something like that just now

431
00:16:00,800 –> 00:16:06,079
when i was driving um in at like 1pm

432
00:16:04,240 –> 00:16:07,680
i felt the heat coming in from the side

433
00:16:06,079 –> 00:16:09,120
and from the front so that means the

434
00:16:07,680 –> 00:16:11,040
heat is coming in through the windshield

435
00:16:09,120 –> 00:16:13,199
on the side window i didn’t feel any

436
00:16:11,040 –> 00:16:15,360
heat coming from the top so that means

437
00:16:13,199 –> 00:16:18,079
you know this sunroof actually doesn’t

438
00:16:15,360 –> 00:16:21,120
trap heat like the sunroof you get in

439
00:16:18,079 –> 00:16:23,040
other cars so this is yeah it’s a genius

440
00:16:21,120 –> 00:16:25,440
thing and also another thing is that i

441
00:16:23,040 –> 00:16:27,600
can see through it from inside the car i

442
00:16:25,440 –> 00:16:28,959
can see outside but when you’re outside

443
00:16:27,600 –> 00:16:31,040
the car you want to look inside you

444
00:16:28,959 –> 00:16:33,360
actually have to look very closely for

445
00:16:31,040 –> 00:16:34,880
you to be able to see inside the car so

446
00:16:33,360 –> 00:16:37,600
i’m guessing if let’s say you park this

447
00:16:34,880 –> 00:16:38,560
car in like a hdb you know outside

448
00:16:37,600 –> 00:16:40,320
parking

449
00:16:38,560 –> 00:16:43,279
people from the top i don’t think they

450
00:16:40,320 –> 00:16:45,120
are able to see inside the car from you

451
00:16:43,279 –> 00:16:47,920
know from uh from high up another thing

452
00:16:45,120 –> 00:16:50,800
about driving this uh tesla is you know

453
00:16:47,920 –> 00:16:52,800
i thought there will be that um moto

454
00:16:50,800 –> 00:16:54,240
sound way like

455
00:16:52,800 –> 00:16:57,199
when you press the accelerator you know

456
00:16:54,240 –> 00:16:59,199
when you accelerate like this like

457
00:16:57,199 –> 00:17:00,800
oh yeah that sound but sometimes i don’t

458
00:16:59,199 –> 00:17:03,120
hear it i don’t know why

459
00:17:00,800 –> 00:17:04,720
so uh you know end up i have to make my

460
00:17:03,120 –> 00:17:07,360
own

461
00:17:04,720 –> 00:17:07,360
sound effects

462
00:17:10,079 –> 00:17:14,720
what else oh yeah the sound system in

463
00:17:11,839 –> 00:17:17,199
this car i can safely say right now that

464
00:17:14,720 –> 00:17:20,240
it’s better than the stock sound system

465
00:17:17,199 –> 00:17:21,199
in a lot of cars really it’s very clear

466
00:17:20,240 –> 00:17:23,679
very

467
00:17:21,199 –> 00:17:26,640
it’s not like the same kind of level as

468
00:17:23,679 –> 00:17:28,400
like a bang olufsen or meridian surround

469
00:17:26,640 –> 00:17:30,080
sound system you know where it’s like

470
00:17:28,400 –> 00:17:31,679
really very very

471
00:17:30,080 –> 00:17:34,080
clear crisp

472
00:17:31,679 –> 00:17:37,360
and just you know very immersive kind of

473
00:17:34,080 –> 00:17:41,679
sound exp audio experience uh this one

474
00:17:37,360 –> 00:17:43,440
is not not that level but for a stock um

475
00:17:41,679 –> 00:17:44,720
sound system in a car this is actually

476
00:17:43,440 –> 00:17:46,559
very very good

477
00:17:44,720 –> 00:17:48,880
so i’m gonna activate

478
00:17:46,559 –> 00:17:51,840
auto steer now so how you do it is you

479
00:17:48,880 –> 00:17:54,640
just tap the gear shifter down quickly

480
00:17:51,840 –> 00:17:57,360
twice like this

481
00:17:54,640 –> 00:18:00,000
and you can see the blue lane markings

482
00:17:57,360 –> 00:18:01,840
and the steering wheel icon turns blue

483
00:18:00,000 –> 00:18:04,799
as well okay so just now when you saw

484
00:18:01,840 –> 00:18:08,240
the blue um sort of like uh chiming

485
00:18:04,799 –> 00:18:10,080
light that was a signal from the car to

486
00:18:08,240 –> 00:18:10,960
tell me to put my hands on the steering

487
00:18:10,080 –> 00:18:12,799
wheel

488
00:18:10,960 –> 00:18:14,400
so how the car knows whether my hands

489
00:18:12,799 –> 00:18:17,120
are on the steering wheel or not is

490
00:18:14,400 –> 00:18:19,280
actually not by the amount of pressure i

491
00:18:17,120 –> 00:18:21,280
grip the steering wheel with it’s more

492
00:18:19,280 –> 00:18:23,200
of like whether i make small adjustments

493
00:18:21,280 –> 00:18:24,960
to the steering wheel or not because

494
00:18:23,200 –> 00:18:27,360
when you hold on the steering wheel no

495
00:18:24,960 –> 00:18:29,360
matter how tightly or how stable you try

496
00:18:27,360 –> 00:18:31,600
to be definitely there will be some a

497
00:18:29,360 –> 00:18:33,280
very minor adjustments that you make to

498
00:18:31,600 –> 00:18:34,880
the steering wheel so that’s how the car

499
00:18:33,280 –> 00:18:37,440
knows whether or not you are holding on

500
00:18:34,880 –> 00:18:39,360
to it and if i don’t hold on to the

501
00:18:37,440 –> 00:18:42,799
steering wheel let’s say i ignore the

502
00:18:39,360 –> 00:18:44,480
blue chime and i just uh don’t touch the

503
00:18:42,799 –> 00:18:46,640
steering wheel let the car

504
00:18:44,480 –> 00:18:47,520
use auto stay all the way what happens

505
00:18:46,640 –> 00:18:49,679
is

506
00:18:47,520 –> 00:18:51,679
the car will actually lock me out of the

507
00:18:49,679 –> 00:18:53,280
system it will deactivate and then it

508
00:18:51,679 –> 00:18:55,840
will not let me use the system for the

509
00:18:53,280 –> 00:18:57,760
rest of the trip so in a way it’s like

510
00:18:55,840 –> 00:18:59,600
punishing me for you know not listening

511
00:18:57,760 –> 00:19:02,400
to it in that sense okay okay so push

512
00:18:59,600 –> 00:19:04,880
down the gear shifter twice

513
00:19:02,400 –> 00:19:06,880
eye contact is blue the lane markings

514
00:19:04,880 –> 00:19:09,360
turn blue

515
00:19:06,880 –> 00:19:10,480
right now i’m not pressing the throttle

516
00:19:09,360 –> 00:19:11,760
i am not

517
00:19:10,480 –> 00:19:14,480
touching the steering wheel as you can

518
00:19:11,760 –> 00:19:15,440
see the car is driving itself

519
00:19:14,480 –> 00:19:17,039
and

520
00:19:15,440 –> 00:19:18,559
i’m not touching the brakes at all okay

521
00:19:17,039 –> 00:19:21,200
the car is slowing down because the car

522
00:19:18,559 –> 00:19:23,120
in front slowed down okay and you can

523
00:19:21,200 –> 00:19:24,799
see over here the car knows the speed

524
00:19:23,120 –> 00:19:26,880
limit for this stretch of road is 70

525
00:19:24,799 –> 00:19:29,120
kilometers per hour so the maximum that

526
00:19:26,880 –> 00:19:31,600
the car will speed up to when in auto

527
00:19:29,120 –> 00:19:33,840
steer mode will be 70 kilometers per

528
00:19:31,600 –> 00:19:35,280
hour as well so auto pilot and auto

529
00:19:33,840 –> 00:19:37,440
steer are two different features

530
00:19:35,280 –> 00:19:38,880
autopilot in this car is not enabled

531
00:19:37,440 –> 00:19:40,240
that’s why i wasn’t able to show you

532
00:19:38,880 –> 00:19:42,640
guys how it works

533
00:19:40,240 –> 00:19:45,600
this is a auto steer so

534
00:19:42,640 –> 00:19:47,679
just to sum up it will speed up and slow

535
00:19:45,600 –> 00:19:49,840
down and come to a complete stop

536
00:19:47,679 –> 00:19:52,640
and it will also keep you within your

537
00:19:49,840 –> 00:19:54,480
lanes it will help to steer you if it’s

538
00:19:52,640 –> 00:19:56,480
if you are approaching a bend it will

539
00:19:54,480 –> 00:19:58,400
actually keep you in the lane so that’s

540
00:19:56,480 –> 00:20:00,640
uh pretty much how auto steer works i’m

541
00:19:58,400 –> 00:20:02,000
just gonna demonstrate a bit more so i

542
00:20:00,640 –> 00:20:03,200
didn’t press the throttle or anything

543
00:20:02,000 –> 00:20:05,039
okay the car

544
00:20:03,200 –> 00:20:07,360
that car moves forward

545
00:20:05,039 –> 00:20:09,679
this tesla will also

546
00:20:07,360 –> 00:20:10,880
start moving okay

547
00:20:09,679 –> 00:20:12,640
so yeah it’s

548
00:20:10,880 –> 00:20:14,559
showing the blue light again to tell me

549
00:20:12,640 –> 00:20:15,919
to touch the steering wheel so i’m just

550
00:20:14,559 –> 00:20:17,840
gonna lightly

551
00:20:15,919 –> 00:20:19,280
touch the steering wheel i’m not gonna

552
00:20:17,840 –> 00:20:20,640
i’m not gonna turn the steering wheel to

553
00:20:19,280 –> 00:20:22,799
follow the lane okay because i want to

554
00:20:20,640 –> 00:20:24,559
show you how this thing works so you can

555
00:20:22,799 –> 00:20:27,840

556
00:20:24,559 –> 00:20:29,679
car is you know following the bend okay

557
00:20:27,840 –> 00:20:32,960
and it’s accelerating and dx

558
00:20:29,679 –> 00:20:35,840
decelerating following the car in front

559
00:20:32,960 –> 00:20:35,840
okay

560
00:20:37,600 –> 00:20:43,440
try to take a look at my feet because my

561
00:20:40,320 –> 00:20:46,000
feet is nowhere near the pedals right

562
00:20:43,440 –> 00:20:49,840
the car is doing all the

563
00:20:46,000 –> 00:20:49,840
accelerating and slowing down

564
00:20:51,760 –> 00:20:55,520
okay i’m just gonna stand by my feet at

565
00:20:53,360 –> 00:20:57,520
the brake pedal just in case

566
00:20:55,520 –> 00:20:59,280
but i’m not touching it okay

567
00:20:57,520 –> 00:21:01,679
you see the car slowed down i didn’t

568
00:20:59,280 –> 00:21:04,320
touch the brake pedal at all

569
00:21:01,679 –> 00:21:06,080
if the car really slows down

570
00:21:04,320 –> 00:21:07,679
by a lot

571
00:21:06,080 –> 00:21:10,240
all right and it’s gonna come to a

572
00:21:07,679 –> 00:21:13,120
complete stop soon because all the cars

573
00:21:10,240 –> 00:21:13,120
in front are stopped

574
00:21:14,559 –> 00:21:17,600
okay look at my feet i’m not touching

575
00:21:16,240 –> 00:21:19,680
the pedals

576
00:21:17,600 –> 00:21:21,120
the car is moving forward on its own

577
00:21:19,680 –> 00:21:22,159
[Music]

578
00:21:21,120 –> 00:21:24,240
okay

579
00:21:22,159 –> 00:21:25,679
blue light again okay so right now the

580
00:21:24,240 –> 00:21:27,520
car knows the speed limit for this

581
00:21:25,679 –> 00:21:29,520
highway is 90 kilometers per hour so

582
00:21:27,520 –> 00:21:31,360
that’s the maximum you will speed up too

583
00:21:29,520 –> 00:21:33,600
right now it’s following the car in

584
00:21:31,360 –> 00:21:34,880
front maintaining about 74 kilometers

585
00:21:33,600 –> 00:21:36,400
per hour

586
00:21:34,880 –> 00:21:37,760
okay

587
00:21:36,400 –> 00:21:40,080
i’m just gonna hold the steering wheel

588
00:21:37,760 –> 00:21:42,720
just in case you can take a look at my

589
00:21:40,080 –> 00:21:46,240
feet i hope you can see that my feet are

590
00:21:42,720 –> 00:21:48,320
not touching the pedals at all

591
00:21:46,240 –> 00:21:50,559
okay so right now my left is clear let

592
00:21:48,320 –> 00:21:51,919
me try to change lanes i signal to the

593
00:21:50,559 –> 00:21:54,320
left you can see

594
00:21:51,919 –> 00:21:55,760
the car detects a space on the left i

595
00:21:54,320 –> 00:21:59,840
just

596
00:21:55,760 –> 00:22:00,960
oh why did it push me back into my lane

597
00:21:59,840 –> 00:22:03,919
apply

598
00:22:00,960 –> 00:22:06,080
slight turning force to steering wheel

599
00:22:03,919 –> 00:22:08,480
okay just nice when i was about to make

600
00:22:06,080 –> 00:22:11,960

602
00:22:13,200 –> 00:22:18,000
okay so just very slightly

603
00:22:15,760 –> 00:22:21,360
and the car will change lanes

604
00:22:18,000 –> 00:22:24,840
