The 2019 Tesla Model 3 won Best EV in the 2020 Edmunds Top Rated Awards because it delivers an all-around appeal that no other EV can match for the money. The Model 3 delivers on all fronts, making it the best electric car. It's exciting to drive and packed with tech features that have unending charm. Best yet, ownership grants you access to the Supercharger network, which is the most extensive fast-charging network in the U.S.

2019 Tesla Model 3 Review:

The launch of the Model 3 drew a lot of buzz, and for good reason. Its unique design, innovative user interface and impressive performance make it a top scorer in our testing. The new EV made headlines with a trio of talking points: 1) 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds! 2) A range of 220 miles! 3) And all for the low, low price of $35,000! While this low-cost Model 3 didn't fully materialize until this year (and even then deducts incentives from the purchase price), we're still hugely impressed.

The Model 3 makes excellent use of its dimensions and feels roomier than many of its competitors. Its trunk is also massive, and the lack of an engine means there's a front trunk as well. Rounding out its strengths are tight steering, poised handling and instant acceleration that make it a thrill to drive. You also get Tesla's suite of advanced driving aids, which is one of the best in the business, especially at this price point.

The Model 3 feels sporty and engaging thanks to strong off-the-line performance, intuitive and responsive steering, and coordinated and nimble handling. The straight-line thrust we admired in the early long-range models can still be found in the new entry-level Standard Plus trim, reaching 60 mph in under 5.5 seconds.

The Model 3's interior design looks modern and cutting-edge. The driving position is highly adjustable and feels great, and the cabin is surprisingly roomy thanks to its minimalistic approach and all-glass roof. Forward visibility is also fantastic thanks to the lack of an engine and the corresponding low hoodline.

The Model 3's trunk can hold far more than you'd expect thanks to a broad pass-through and SUV-like fold-flat rear seats. The trunk's stated capacity (15 cubic feet) isn't that impressive compared to what you get from other luxury compact sedans, but we were able to fit an extra-large mountain bike with ease.

Inside, cabin storage is pretty decent, which is something we can't say about the other Tesla models. However, since the front cupholders lack anti-tip tabs, cups and bottles aren't likely to fit snugly. The car seat anchors are tucked tightly between the seat cushions, so you must take care to avoid scratching the leather as you hook up. Once in, even rear-facing car seats will fit behind an average-size driver.
