Designed from the ground up as a pure battery electric car, the Tesla Model S sedan is one of the most revolutionary vehicles on the market, with both owner reports and editorial reports delivering glowing praise of the car's fit, finish and performance. The energy-frugal Tesla Model S doesn't sacrifice performance; its maximum horsepower is an impressive 416 with an super-car level 443 pound-per-feet of torque. The Tesla Model S has the capability to go zero to 60 in just 4.0 seconds.
The Tesla Model S made history as it was named the 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year, being the first time an electric car has ever earned that title beating out a field that included ten other top contenders. The Motor Trend award is not the first recognition the Tesla Model S has received; Time Magazine also named it one of the 25 Best Inventions of the Year as well. The Tesla Model S's ground breaking technology, standard setting performance, and its sexy, luxury sport car look has put not just the electric car market on notice, but the entire automobile market.
