Comparing the Lexus ES with The Tesla Model 3

The Lexus ES is designed to be sharper, more refined, and focused on creating the best luxury sedan experience ever.

The Lexus ES offers many advantages that customers recognized over its competitors. Its unique design, solid driving manners, superior luxury, and a choice between two engine options, including the only true hybrid model in its class. All of these points are why the Lexus ES is considered the most popular sedan in our lineup.

This may seem like an unfair comparison…but let us explain…

There has been a number of luxury car buyers flocking to the Tesla Model 3 because of the promises it has made towards a zero-emissions, all-electric future. But the Lexus ES offers many advantages over the Tesla Model 3.

  • The ES is a hybrid model designed for more efficiency and a quieter drive. Plus, it charges by itself through regenerative braking. No need to plug in an ES 300h. That also means a savings of $2,000 on installing a charger at home.
  • The ES also has an easy-to-operate interior with informative instrumentation and simple access to infotainment options. A true cockpit design – not a study on minimalism.
  • While you have to use a network of “superchargers” to recharge the Model 3 away from home, the ES 300h can be refueled anywhere where regular gasoline is sold. There are a lot more gasoline stations than charging ones.
  • In order to get a Model 3, you would have to order one online. Lexus of Henderson has an actual inventory available with the features you are looking for. You can actually test drive any of our ES models, and take one home without waiting for one to be produced.
  • Getting your ES serviced? No problem! We even have loaner cars and a nice lounge to relax in at our dealership. Where would you get your Model 3 serviced?

Most importantly, customers choose the ES for its value. You can get more in an ES than any comparable Model 3 – at a price that sits well in your wallet.
