Yep, that's right. In gas-guzzling America, the consensus is that the Tesla Model S is the best car of 2013. Motor Trend even went so far as to call it the most important new car since the Model T.
This is the same Tesla that Romney continually tried to trash and that was able to be developed because of loans from the Obama Administration. It is the first electric car with a long range(up to 300 miles) and it will force global, traditional automakers to move forward with vehicle electrification.
The Tesla Model S, the all-electric sports sedan from Elon Musk's Tesla Motors, has picked up yet another ringing endorsement for its virtues as a car, not just an eco-friendly one: The Model S was named Motor Trend's Car of the Year 2013, as Musk announced at an event in New York City on Monday.http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
The honor comes on the heels of the Model S being named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year 2013 and Yahoo Autos' Car of the Year 2013. The Model S, which gets 300 miles per charge (traveling at 55 miles per hour) starts at $49,000 and is available for reservation online now, though pre-orders are backed up. Musk earlier in September unveiled a network of supercharging stations in California.
Republicans keep on spouting off all the nonsense about the government not being able to pick winners, but this fantastic car sure shows that the government can play a very important role in driving forward ground-breaking technology and innovative companies.
Big Oil hates it, of course, since you now can basically do all your driving with sunlight if you have a renewables electricity plan or have solar panels installed on your garage.
