Edmunds.com has announced that the Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S vehicle has received an A rating. Edmunds.com calls the Model S a “groundbreaking electric vehicle with unprecedented range and performance.”
“The Model S is a huge departure from the typical electric car, with its luxury sedan accommodations and pulse-quickening performance. Thanks to a thoroughly modern interpretation of interior design and a host of advanced technological features, the Model S also serves as a new benchmark for all vehicles, electric or otherwise,” stated Edmunds.com in their review. “Nor is the Tesla Model S exclusive to the ultra-wealthy. As-new pricing for the base model starts around $60,000, and that’s not including a federal tax credit.”
The Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S also recently received 5 stars for efficiency in the ADAC EcoTest. The Model S has received many more awards including the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, the Automobile Magazine 2013 Car of the Year, the Motor Trend 2013 Car of the Year, and the Consumer Reports best car ever tested award with 99 out of 100 points.
