The wait was finally over this summer as Tesla began UK deliveries of their most keenly priced vehicle to date, the Tesla Model 3, and the car has made an immediate impression on UK sales charts. Last month Elon Musk's new fully electric family car sold more than the ever popular Ford Focus and Mercedes Benz A-Class, with only the VW Golf and Ford Fiesta shifting more units during August.

It's not hard to see why motorists are flocking to this brilliant new motor, it's much more practical than other smaller competitors like BMW's i3 or the Smart ForFour, offers an incredible range of 258 miles and 0-60 in a rather brisk 5.6 seconds. Add to that of course tons of impressive Tesla tech and their always impressive sleek minimalist design.
