Model 3 Orientation Videos

Model 3 Orientation Videos

I'm taking delivery of my Model 3 in the next week. I won't be going to a store to pick it up. Why hasn't Tesla posted any orientation videos for new owners?

Why aren't there any Model 3 orientation videos?

Why aren’t they that many model 3 yet . Ok to soon . That’s an idea that was tossed around in this forum earlier. I’m assuming they will once the Model 3 is in full production.

Well, does that mean the earlier owners should have to wait to understand their car? I'm just talking about an orientation video, not a major production. I want to know how to use the car.

There is a book you can get "Getting Ready for Model 3" available from Evannex. Evannex.com

Lots of videos on YouTube and Vimeo

There is indeed Tesla videos once you get your car. You access them from the Tesla account page and includes the manual . The M3 is very intuitive to use. We love ours.
Check out TeslaTap.com for lots of details and links.

Thanks Mike83. I get my car next week, so I want to know the details. I already have a Model S and it took awhile to learn its nuances. I'll look forward to the Tesla videos once I get it.

At the Marina del Rey delivery center, our delivery host said that indeed, M3 owners will get a group video orientation to speed things up.

We saw an area set up as kind of a theater, with a big screen. Wasn't in use when we picked up in late December.

Hopefully Tesla sends me a link. But, I'm sure the car is plenty intuitive too. So not too worried.

Your delivery specialist gives you a full orientation in person when you pick up the car

Before taking delivery of our Model S in Mar 2014, I watched just about every video that was out there. When it came to the delivery walk through, I kept saying, “...yep, I know that”. There were only a couple of things that I needed explaining. I also didn’t even look at the owner’s manual until 3 weeks after taking delivery.

Trust me and others, you are over thinking this. If you can operate a smart phone, you can figure this out.

@Xerogas, that's how it's done today. I think with 40 delivery bays at Marina del Rey, CA, for example, when the M3 production ramps up, it will be impossible for everyone to get a 45-60 minute in-car orientation. My guess is the video orientation en masse will save at least half that in-car time with the DS.

@rxlawdude, agreed, and I still think OP is overthinking it, as @jordanrichard said.

It's a car. You get in and drive it. It's not some kind of multiplayer puzzle game. Because of the big beautiful central screen, everything is all in one place, so I guarantee it's 10X easier to figure out how to change settings than traditional cars with their horrible crazy multi-button user interfaces.

When I got my Model S, there were videos. By the next significant software update, some were outdated. Reading the manual helps.

dkenta, I was just looking for them myself. To show my students in class tomorrow, in connection with a survey.
Did not find any.
An example of more "underselling"?
Spring 2 years ago, waiting to take delivery of 2 Model Ss, I watched every video there was. And there were a lot. On the Tesla Motors dot com site. About the Model S.
Now, for Model 3, none that I can find.
The first of 2 I have on order should show up in 2 or 3 weeks. I'm sure I can figure it out.
Go Tesla.
