The Tesla Model 3 owners club Youtube channel managed to borrow a Tesla Model 3 for a couple of days and pored over every detail of the car, creating an hour long overview of almost every detail. Continue reading →
The Model 3 is primarily opened by bluetooth proximity technology and the Tesla smartphone app, with only a backup RFID keycard included. Here’s all we know about how the system works so far.

Youtuber Bjorn Nyland likes to push the limits in his Tesla Model X, having travelled over 100,000km around Norway and Europe, a lot of it with a trailer, and sharing his experiences with (excruciatingly) long videos.

As you can imagine, his recommendation is to not try this at home. The world didn’t end but it was a big waste of time. Interesting to see how a Model X can be towed and jump-started though.
