Motor Trend Names Tesla Model S Car Of The Year

Posted Nov 13, 2012

Motor Trend magazine has named the Tesla Model S the 2013 Car of the Year. This is the first electric car to receive the award and the first winner by a unanimous decision. Motor Trend editor-at-large Angus MacKenzie said that the Model S is “one of the quickest four-door sedans ever built.” Angus also said that the car “drives like a sports car.” The vehicle is also more fuel-efficient than a Toyota Prius.

“Our aspiration with the Model S was to show that an electric car truly can be better than any gasoline car, which is a critical step towards the widespread adoption of sustainable transport,” stated Tesla Motors co-founder and CEO Elon Musk. “Nothing illustrates this more clearly than winning Motor Trend?s Car of the Year by unanimous decision against a field of exceptional competitors.”
