Tesla CEO, Elon Musk said at the global launch of the Model 3 in Fremont, California, that the new Tesla model 3 will go over 1,000,000 miles before you have to service its powertrain. So no need for engine, transmission and axle service like we’ve been used to. Splendid!
Although, you will still have to change other consumables more often e.g the tyres, brakes etc.. He said “the next generation powertrains are designed to be a million miles between services.” he seems to be very confident about the powertrains, electric motors and cells implemented in the Tesla Model 3.
