The ultimate road trip EV? Tesla Model 3 Italian road trip: part 2

The ultimate road trip EV? Tesla Model 3 Italian road trip: part 2

Video by Andrew Till / Mr. EV via YouTube

After a fairly rocky start in part one (, will we warm to the Tesla Model 3 driving back from Italian Alps to England? Here’s what we did in the mountains (walking and eating primarily), the journey home, and our painfully honest concluding thoughts.

And yes — this was back in 2022 and it took me this long edit it. So there will be things Tesla may have fixed by now!

Unfortunately I completely forget to look at efficiency and mileage during most of the journey, so the video isn’t as saturated with stats as my normal road trips. I blame the Tesla making that information less visible than other EVs. And perhaps it’s just a little easier to forget about all that stuff when the whole experience is just that bit easier?

I’d love to know your thoughts about our journey in the comments, including the typical angry Tesla owners telling me what I did wrong, and the Tesla haters telling me Elon Musk is evil and Teslas are rubbish.
