US market. Sedan's very common there.So do we all pretty much agree now that sedan instead of hatchback was a bit of a misstep for the Model 3 ? If this new model comes out as a hatchback the Model 3 is going to look a bit like the odd one out since every other car Tesla has made (apart from the Roadster) is a hatchback.
Sure, it's still a great car without being a hatchback, and the boot is pretty big, but is there any Model 3 owner who would have been unhappy if it had been a hatchback not a Sedan and still followed the same design lines ? I suspect not. (It's perfectly possible to design a hatchback with a Sedan side profile - I drive an ICE which does exactly that)
Can someone remind me again what the reasoning behind the Sedan body was ? Was it just to accommodate the panoramic glass roof ? Or was it a manufacturing cost cutting measure ?
Just because someone buys a car doesn't mean they like everything about it. Especially when there are so few (any ?) direct competitors, supply of EV's is short, and the car has some other killer features. (Supercharging etc)I must have missed something - did they not sell every car they made?
I wonder if they will keep the Model 3 as a Sedan purposely to differentiate the Model Y and make those that really want or need a hatchback plump for the bigger more expensive car to get it ?Once they start selling Model Y, and if they ever do start making a Model 3 hatchback, let's see if they continue to sell every Model 3 sedan they make.
My Skoda Octavia agrees with you.but you can make a hatchback that has Sedan lines quite easily if that's your thing.
Haha, thanks. But it's to replace the dirty diesel long distance car. I'd rather have access to a network of charging hubs in addition to the piss poor UK public 1 or 2 rapid chargers at each location.
