I spent £50k on a Tesla and I hate it – here’s why | The Sun

A MAN who spent £50k on a Tesla Model 3 claims he hates his electric car.

Nic Palladino took to social media to reveal the downsides of owning an expensive EV from the US firm.

TikTok user @nicpalladino10 says that the battery life displayed on the screen of his Tesla is so inaccurate.

Nic said: "I live in Arizona, so it gets in triple digits in the summertime every day. If Icharge this up to 200, I can't expect to get more than about 150 out of it, so be careful.

"Difficulty number two, this door handles right here, they may look easy, but they require a big hand.

"The biggest annoyance is when I have groceries in my hand. It's a little bit difficult to not only get my thumb here but wrap my hand around it and pull it open.

Tesla Model 3 cars can be opened with a key card or the Tesla App, which can be installed on iPhone and Android.

The Tesla owner continued: "Finally, the accessibility to get into your car if your phone dies.

"I rarely carry my key card because my phone has the Tesla App, but if my phone dies, I don't have any other way to get into my car until my phone is charged or I have a friend with me.

"But there have been situations where I've sat at the gym, and I had to ask my neighbour to charge my phone so I can get into my car."
