Best Car Ever Tested: Tesla - CR,Money.CNN

Tesla : Consumer Reports' best car ever tested -
By Peter Valdes-Dapena @PeterDrives May 9, 2013

Consumer Reports is calling the Tesla Model S the best car it has ever tested. The Model S, an all-electric plug-in car, earned a score of 99 out of a possible 100 in the magazine's tests.

The score would have been higher but for the fact that the all-electric car does need to stop and recharge during extremely long-distance drives.

"If it could recharge in any gas station in three minutes, this car would score about 110," said Jake Fisher, head of auto testing for Consumer Reports. Fisher called the car's performance in the magazine's performance tests "off the charts."... car at any price has ever scored higher...

Re: Best Car Ever Tested: Tesla - CR,Money.CNN

I'm sorry but this is complete BS. It is quite possibly a great car, but the reviews are tainted by the reviews political leanings. CR who cannot complain about touch screens loudly enough in every other car, a complaint that is almost single handedly responsible for their dropping the Fusion from among the best to among the worst, her rates the Tesla within 1 point of perfect in spite of its living room sized touch screen that controls almost every aspect of the car.

Journalism is nothing but propaganda these days, they'll shill for anything that fits their views.

^^^yeah, and every other new model they test (especially from "The Big Three") never scores that high because they say "it is too new to tell"............
