Consumer Reports  recently tried out the Tesla  Model S electric car, and after all the testing was done, the magazine found that the Model S outscored every other car in their ratings. “It does so even though it’s an electric car . In fact it does so because it is electric,” Consumer Reports stated. Consumer Reports  gave the Model S high marks for its impressive power, overall balance and comfortable ride.
Consumer Reports gave the Model S  a score of 99 out of 100, which is the first time that Consumer Reports  has given a vehicle that high of a score since 2007, when the magazine tested the Lexus LS 460L. This is also the first time that an electric vehicle has ever earned a score that high.
“The Tesla Model S  is packed with technological innovation,” stated Jake Fisher, director of Automotive Testing for Consumer Reports. “It accelerates, handles and brakes like a sports car, it has the ride and quietness of a luxury car and is far more energy efficient than the best hybrid cars.”
This is not the first time that the Model S has earned praise  from the automotive media. Automobile Magazine and Motor Trend also gave the Model S their highly coveted “Car of the Year” awards this year.
