Buying a car can be daunting but YouTuber EvgeniTalks has a piece of advice for anyone looking to purchase a new motor in 2020 – he reckons you should invest in the 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance, and here’s why.

EvgeniTalks is an up and coming online reviewer who regularly showcases new cars on his YouTube channel, and he rates the 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance highly.

The impressive sedan is just one installment of the manufacturer’s electric, eco-friendly range and is priced at $56,990 – when purchased directly from Tesla. While they were first put into production in mid-2017, the stylish automobile has been given a refresh for the new year.

The price of the latest Model 3, in general, depends on the spec of the vehicle you have in mind, but it’s worth noting that it’s available in both rear-wheel and dual-motor all-wheel drive. The Tesla Model 3 Performance reviewed by EvgeniTalks, though, is top of the range.

The YouTuber posted a comprehensive video on December 30, breaking down a number of different reasons as to why people should be looking at the Performance model – which is one of the hottest selling set of wheels on the market.

As we mentioned earlier, this is a revamped version of the Model 3, and EvgeniTalks was super impressed by the changes. He said: “I think they’re really starting to become higher quality, as the fit and finish in this car is actually way better than my previous Model 3. I had a dual-motor, non Performance car before.

“It’s getting a lot better, even the doors when you open and close them, they don’t make that rattle like they do in the old one. That’s crazy.” He didn’t stop there, either, delving into some more of the specifics for both the interior and exterior of the sedan. So, let’s take a look at the best bits.

 

Tesla Model 3 Performance – Best bits

So, there are a few interesting facts about the Tesla Model 3 Performance model. The car itself can travel from 0-60mph in an impressive 3.2 seconds, with a cracking 473bhp.

“A three-second to 60 in a car that cost $56,990 is very impressive to me,” the reviewer stated, before describing the power of the engine as “monstrous”. Not a bad impression for a car at this price point.

Plus, cool features in the ‘Performance’ package includes a carbon fiber spoiler, red brake calipers, bigger brakes, as well as sport and track mode.

Tesla also predicts, according to their website’s price calculator, that buyers will save themselves $6,300 due to not only gas savings but potential incentives for driving a carbon-neutral vehicle as well.

So, it might not be as expensive as the initial price looked after all, and certainly nowhere near as outlandish as Tesla’s upcoming Cybertruck.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
