Tesla launched its first car in 2008 and pretty much revolutionised the car market. The popular Model 3 comes in three different versions; standard, long-range and performance. However, due to the mileage company car drivers might do, we recommend the long-range version, purely because you get that extra range out of the battery compared to the other two versions.
You’ll be pleased to hear that it scored 5 stars on the Euro NCAP safety rating, and twinned with its other safety features, such as semi-autonomous Autopilot technology, it hits the top spot on being the safest company car option available. This not only reduces business risk but also the business’s duty of care too.
As with a lot of electric cars, the Model 3 excels in its acceleration. It can achieve 0-60 in 4.4seconds, something unheard of in company cars with conventional internal combustion engines (ICE).
Fitting the family in at the weekends won’t be a problem either, with a 425 litre boot space when you add the total from the front and rear storage areas together.
