The mid-priced EV market is about to be turned upside down.

Image source: Tesla.

Tesla Motors' (TSLA -6.42%) Model 3 hasn't hit the road yet (and it won't until late 2017), but that doesn't mean that what we know about the $35,000 sedan can't be compared to what's currently on the all-electric car market. 

Honestly, it's tough finding a direct comparison to the Model 3. But when it comes to price, size, and speed, the Nissan (NSANY 2.70%) Leaf, BMW (BAMXF 2.47%) i3, and General Motors' (GM -1.99%) Chevrolet Bolt are as close at it gets. 

Each of the three is a fine example of electric car ingenuity, but in nearly every category they fall flat when compared to the Model 3. Click on the video below to find more about why Tesla's latest car is poised to dominate the mid-range, all-electric car market.
