They say that “Who gives first, gives twice” and those honeys are what he is savoring Tesla. The American manufacturer knows that its advantage, compared to its rivals, is great and it is not short in showing it off. One of its latest novelties was the Model 3, a torpedo direct to the waterline of established premium firms such as Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
